Farm Fresh Friday - That Gal

This week's challenge is an inspiration challenge and below is the picture that we given. Don't forget to check out the TGF blog to see the rest of the DT's fabulous creations.


I wanted to do something a bit more girlie...so I thought Marlene would be good for a nice pastel card. When Amuse's new spring stamps came out, I fell in love with this Merci sentiment. I also used Taylored Expressions Sketch Challenge #112 and my green washi tape.

Paper: Basic Grey Porcelain
Stamps: The Greeting Farm, sentiment is Amuse
Pearls, Washi tape, Nestabilities, MS Butterfly Punch, Copics, and Crystal Stickles


Now on to the rambling. First off, this has been a disappointing week for me, lol. I really wanted Koli to win Biggest Loser and Crystal to win American Idol. But I'm excited that Bachelorette is back and So You Think You Can Dance. Big Brother starts on July 8th, so I'm counting down the days.

On Wednesday night I went to Scrapbook Nook, my local scrapbooking store, and while I was there, some lady had stolen a demo book. They saw her on the camera, lol, and they told her she wasn't allowed to come back or she would be trespassing. They told her that the police would contact her. CRAZY, right?!? All of this was going on while I was paying for my stuff.

Well, I hope you all have a fabulous Friday! It's almost the weekend and wahoo for a 3 day weekend!

  3. Sweet card, Sparkle. I really like the colors. You combine 'em better than most anyone I know. *Ü*

    Bummer that Koli didn't win the big prize on BL, but hopefully what he learned he will take to his family and others and have a healthy future. I thought Michael looked pretty good, if stuffed, in those jeans. Hope he's learned enough to keep it off!

  11. Super cute, girlie! LOVE your card and I have to say, as sad as it is that there are people out there who steal samples/books from LSS's, it used to happen all the time at the LSS near my old house. I don't get it, but have nver actually been there while it was happening, LOL!

  18. I love, love your adorable card!
    We are Twinsies when it comes to our Summer TV watching! I have been so excited about SYTYCD being back on. I don't want to "Spoil"(and by that I mean give things away, not give bad news!) it for you, so without giving too much away do you know that this season is kind of an "All Stars" where half the dancers are going to be from past seasons? I will say no more until I find out if this is news to you... :-)Traci

  21. cute card!! Love hoe much pink and yellow you used, and those butterflies are so sweet. :) Crazy about the shoplifter!! I once saw a teenager walk out of Albertson's with a 24-pack under his sweatshirt!! I had to do a double-take, it was just too weird. Luckily there was a manager walking out right behind him so I didn't have to intervene, hehehe

  22. Your card is darling, Sparkle!

    I read today that Crystal has signed a recording contract. She deserves to have a wonderful career. I saw a video of her on YouTube singing when she was 13. If you haven't seen it, it's worth a look. She was amazing then, too.

    Have a great weekend, friend!
