FARM FRESH FRIDAY is here with another terrific sketch challange at THE GREETING FARM.

My daughter has loved music pretty much since she was in the womb. I could feel her little feet tapping against my belly when we would jam in the car. She now plays the flute and the violin beautifully and I am so proud of her. When she was little, she had a Raffi tape (yes tape, we are THAT old) and we played that thing till it fell apart. We had to replace it at least once maybe twice and I was so sick of those songs but she never tired of them. One of the songs was the Five Little Pumpkin song which she adored. When I was thinking of projects for the SPOOKTACULAR set from THE GREETING FARM that song came to mind and here is the result.

I had some leftover faux wood from the Spooky fence project so I made a gate for the pumpkins to sit upon. I made the background using some of Michele Zindorf's amazing sponging/brayering techniques. The wonderful vine is an SVG file from the fabulous Penny Duncan. I swear that woman can read minds. One day I was in need of a swirly vine and the next I find it on her blog.

Here is the sketch, it was a really fun one to work with. I flipped it on its side and left off the flower. I was going to add a witch instead but forgot until I was writing this.

Check back tomorrow for a little TGF tease, I won't say more than that and you can't make me na na nana na na.

Thanks for stopping by and have a great weekend!
