FARM FRESH FRIDAY!

Congrats to Patti J on winning soccer Ian! Isn't he just the cutest? Congrats to all the other winners too, lets see some of your wonderful works of art with those new stamps! And here is a perfect opportunity to get all inky...

THE GREETING FARM will be having challenges on Farm Fresh Fridays and the first is this adorable sketch created by our fearless leader Jessica.




I, of course, used the new Soccer Ian Stamp. My son doesn't play soccer anymore but he has plenty of friends who do so this is a perfect birthday card for one of them. I looked all over for something to make the net and finally found a bag from target in the bargain bins that held rubber numbers. I used silver cardstock to make the rim.

I did a little sewing on this one. Boy do I miss sewing, no time these days to make a garment but it is nice to do a little stitching on a card once in a while.

Thanks for stopping by and have a super weekend!
