Farm Fresh Friday...I've got Sunshine.


Happy Friday all! Are you about ready to be done with winter? I know I am. This week's theme to help send off The Greeting Farm girls Marie, Jessica, and Randi to CHA in Sunny CA is to create a summery card.

For my card I colored Ruby/Stella with my copics that I pictured above. I did an alteration of using Gigi's head with Ruby's body. I thought what represents summer better then some fresh fruit and veggies? So I made my card in strawberry colors and found some Basic Grey papers that had some summery crops on it and attempted to use many flowers from that BIG can of Primas. Add a few little half pearls and life is good. I do hope you get to join us on this week's FFF challenge on The Greeting Farm Blog.

Looking for more inspiration? Please visit the rest of the Farmers and the Critter Crew listed in my left sidebar.

Don't forget I'm giving away some fabulous TGF blog candy and you have until Feb. 28th to leave a comment. Just click on the link in my right side bar. Thank you for visiting today and I hope you have a wonderful weekend.
