TGF - "Farm Fresh Friday" - No Designer Paper Challenge -- OH MY!!!!

Happy Friday
... I'm jumping for joy
that I can finally say T.G.I.F.
What a week this has been!

It's another Farm Fresh Friday over at
The Greeting Farm Blog
and our lovely Kadie has decided to REALLY
challenge us this week saying we
While Jessica was breaking out in hives,
I had a quick solution to the problem.
See Jessica?  It's no sweat!

What I did to get around this little challenge,
was to take 3 different shades of textured
cardstock, and use stamps to decorate the paper.
Hey, they didn't say we couldn't stamp all over our
plain paper, did they?  No hives here!

I decided that I didn't have many boys birthday cards,
so this challenge worked perfect for making a card for a boy.
I used the VERY adorable little Max from
the new Twinkle Tots Collection!

- Take a look -

Awwww, isn't he just too cute?
I just want to pinch his little cheeks!

So you see my plain colored paper, all stamped up,
and the edges are inked a little to add even more detail.
I used a decorative edge scissor to cut the background paper
and the strip across the card, and ta-dah, it looked great!
Do you recognize the layout?
It is actually a Greeting Farm - Farm Fresh Friday Sketch
from ages ago, and it just so happens that it worked
perfectly for what I had in mind.

Thanks for stopping by, I hope you'll join in
and take this cool challenge.
I'd love to see what you create!

Have a GREAT Weekend!

You did a great job Lynda!! I think Kadie wanted us to go 'old school' for a while to see how we used to do things! And while that was fun...I'm ready to have my patterned paper back now! LOL Have a great weekend Lynda!
