Smell Something?...


ahhhhh..and it's Farm Fresh...FRIDAY that is!

Before I begin, I want to thank each and every one of you for the emails and comments I received this past week. I had no idea I'd get so many emails checking in on me and I adore you guys for being so awesome. Y'all really know how to make a girl smile...even when it hurts! LOL! I am doing okay. I try to think about all of the awful things that people endure on a daily basis when I am asked about how I'm feeling because in all reality it's just oral surgery, you know? But, I'm not gonna lie...it hurts. And coming from someone who has had 4 kids, 2 of those births with little to NO pain medication, I'd like to think my tolerance is pretty high. Mouth pain just...well, stinks and there's no way around it. Anyway, I am taking my medicine and am SO grateful for my parents who have been shuttling me soup and entertaining the kids while DH is in Chicago for work. THANK YOU SO MUCH MOM AND DAD!!!!!

Well, speaking of things that stink, LOL!, how CUTE is this Laurie skunk, designed by the amazing Marina Neira for The Greeting Farm? Isn't she adorable? SOOOO STINKIN' CUTE...and pun intended, of course ;)This week we have a sketch for Farm Fresh Friday that was actually designed by...me! I LOVE sketches, and love to draw them but am NOT so savvy with the programs that "draw" them on the computer, so I scan them to Marie and she makes them look all pretty :)

You guys should check out The Greeting Farm's Blog today to see ALL the amazing takes on this sketch by our awesome DT. Some SUPER cute ones that will definitely leave you inspired!

Well, thanks again for stickin' with me and that surprise I promised you is coming...just pushed it back a few days since I'm a bit under the weather still..but SO nice to know that I have so many friends out here in cyber stampin' space! xoxo to you all!

Wonderful layout and adorable card Jessica! That skunk is a sweetie! Love your coloring and that ric rac makes it so fresh and youthful. Take it easy with your recovery, and btw, mouth pain is definitely an inconvenience. :(

Your card is stinking gorgeous, love the layout too, hopefully get a chance to join in the challenge over the weekend. Can't wait to hear what your surprise is, i do love a surprise :)

Glad to hear that your parents are close by to help you recovery from your oral surgery and keep the kids occupied. I think tooth pain and earache are the two worst pains you can suffer, just no way to ignore them. Hope your feel better real soon, take care
