Don't forget to floss

Ok well if you don't have embroidery floss handy try any kind of string.  That's what I did!  Sometimes you just gotta improvise.  Today Farm Fresh challenge is to use floss on your card.  I used hemp string on mine.  I thought I'd try something different so I made double bows to hold the buttons on the butterflies.  These cute little polka dot creations are part of the Spotlight scrapbook kit from The Greeting Farm.  The most shocking thing about this card is I actually used Purple!!  It seems to be the one colour I can not find a use for. 
Anyway here's my card.

Try something new!

Well hello there, happy Friday!  Today's Farm Fresh challenge is mine.  You have to try a new technique or something you've recently discovered.  Well for this challenge I decided to try making those medallion things I see sprouting up everywhere on cards.  At first I wasn't sure what I was getting myself into but when I was done I was so thrilled with my medallion I made a couple more.
So challenge yourself to try something new and play along with us at The Greeting Farm.

Here's my medallion card.

Hip to be square

This week's Farm Fresh challenge is a sketch challenge.  It sorta reminds me of a quilt with all it's squares!  I made a square card with 5 squares inside.  I didn't count the layers but I can tell you this is one heavy card!
Hop on over to The Greeting Farm blog to see the sketch and play along with us!  Ok now I will show you my gone mad with squares card. 
I used the adorable Amelia from the new Journey set from The Greeting Farm to make this card.  She's so cute sitting there with her best friend waiting for their journey to start.

A Lemon of a day!

I don't have a giant lemon stamp nor a small one for that matter.  So I have to invent one! I love to make paper piecings.  I haven't made one in ages but I'm finding more and more samples on cards and scrapbook pages.  Whimsie Doodles now has a Facebook page and they are giving away a free Margarita digi to new members.  (This is where the lemon comes in)  I made this card using only the sentiment from the new digi because I wanted to make a giant paper pieced lemon.  I even remembered to take photos of the proceess and you can see how I made the lemon here if you feel like making a big lemon or orange.
