FFF Challenge on The Greeting Farm blog...

Hi guys,
     I promised to share with you all my finished card using Beanie Ian and I finally finished it.  lol...
Sorry it took me so long to get my card finished today.  We all wanted to finish up the last three episodes of season 4 of The Walking Dead.  :O)  Usually this would so not be something I would watch, but as Andrew Lincoln is one of the main characters in it and I just LOVE anything he plays so of course I do not miss a chance to watch. lol

     So, let's get to the reason you are here.  That would be my card for today.  I was in the process of organizing my stamps this past week and I came across Beanie Ian and I could not believe that I had yet to ink him up.  I knew right away what paper pad I wanted to use with him, but I wasn't too sure what kind of card I wanted to put him on.  I really didn't want to go with a Christmas card for him as I wanted to play around with the idea that he didn't have to be only for Christmas or winters.
     Of course when I'm not too sure what direction I want to go I will head over to The Greeting Farm Blog and see what challenges they have going on.  I was very happy to see that this week's Farm Fresh Friday challenge is non other than a 'Thanks or Thankful' card!  I have a very special 'Thank You' card that I need to make and this is just the perfect time to make it.  :O)
     As you might be able to tell I pulled out a lot of old products that I have been hording to make this card.  I have a ton of the gem swirls that over a year ago I had to have and I still haven't touched.  I also have a few different kinds of embossing powders that I have but tend to not use too often as I really don't like the chance of a mess on my desk or pulling out my embossing gun.  I also used some brown pigment ink that I never use as I tend to go with black for all of my sentiments.  Yep, I am very happy with myself on this card and with how it turned out as well.
     If you haven't checked it out, or if you just haven't thought about playing in a while check out The Greeting Farm blog and play along with the FFF Challenge.  I know you'll have fun.
     Have a wonderful week everyone.  I have a card for tomorrow that I made with no stamps at all.
Hope to see you tomorrow.
Hugs Lisa G
