Farm Fresh Friday

Smile though your heart is aching;
Smile even though it's breaking.
When there are clouds in the sky, you'll get by.
If you smile through your fear and sorrow,
Smile and maybe tomorrow,
You'll see the sun come shining through for you.

Yay! It's Friday and you know what that is time for another Farm Fresh Friday challenge. This week's challenge is a fabulous sketch by the uber talented Farmer Cindy. You saw the deets on The Greeting Farm blog for TGF Cares Charity Card Drive right? If not, please go check out how you could be a little ray of sunshine and put smiles on the faces of ill children or their parents. This is another card I made for the drive. I used the newly released Dee Dee and colored her with copics. I paired her with some yummy October Afternoon paper that I received from a dear friend. Then added some tiny twinkles and Icon pink gems. Just a little tip...don't drop your tiny twinkles container onto a carpeted floor with one of the bays open...not that I did that or anything...just saying. LOL.

This weekend and next week are supposed to be gorgeous. The Cherry Blossoms in DC are in bloom right now and how I would love to go check them out. They are absolutely stunning to see in person. I hope you get a chance to play along in this week's challenge and that you have a wonderful day. Thanks for stopping by and for even more inspiration on this sketch please visit the rest of the DT.
