Farm Fresh Friday Goes Old School

Sorry my post is late...I thought I had it all ready to go...apparently that wasn't the case.

"TGF is goin' OLD SCHOOL! In honor of Back to School time, we thought we'd do a traditional "Back to School" challenge until Jess and Marie decided, why not go OLD SKOOL?

So here's the deal.

In order to be considered truly OLD SCHOOL, it's easier to limit the stamps to what you cannot use vs. what you can: You CANNOT use:

*Wild Sprouts
*Cheeky Cherry collection
*Oliver/Amelia Stamps
*Creepers or Creepy Cakes
*Any Anya AFTER the release of WILD WEST ANYA (Spring/Summer 09)
*Any Ian AFTER the releases of SKATER IAN (Spring 09)
*Miss Anyas/My Guy Ians
*Any Critter Crew images
*Grandparents/Darling Sisters

If you have specific questions, you can email Jessica at Please take note of the different email address JUST for these inquiries-I get so many emails that I just don't want to miss your questions!

Just think OLD SCHOOL. Older the better :)

For my card I used Angel Anya with some slight modification. She lost her wings and halo and I added in a few extensions where the wings were. LOL. I colored this lovely with copics and paired her some fabulous Cosmo Cricket paper. I paper pieced her dress and bow. Then I added a few flowers, buttons, and pearls to draw your eyes around the card.

This contest will be opened for a few weeks. The winner of this contest will be crowned OLD SCHOOL CHAMP and receive the ENTIRE October release along with an old, smelly pair of Converse All-Stars aka Chuck Taylors!! (ok, KIDDING on the latter prize!)

A runner up will ALSO win a 4x6 set of their choice! This will be a random contest, but hey, why not a runner up too? :)

The contest winner will be announced on Monday, September September 27th during a October Preview post. That's a lot of time, so get busy and get OLD SCHOOL! You have until Sunday, Sept 26th at 8pm CST to enter your card to TGF Galleria> Contests/Challenges>OLD SKOOL

Thanks for visitig and have a fabulous weekend!

Hi Mary! Long time no visit, just because of life, KWIM? Anywho, I'm glad I popped over today to see this super-cute card! I love the colors and patterns; they remind me of a vintage kitchen for some reason! And I never thought of altering her - it's like having an entire new image! Perfect! Hope you and hubby and sweet Olivia are enjoying life! {hug}
