Spring Cleaning...




Hello all!

I hope you're having a Farm Fresh and fabulous Friday!  It seems that Spring has finally SPRUNG!  Hooray! With that in mind, we've whipped up a fun little challenge for you today:  SPRING CLEANING.

Now, I know that might sound like a chore, but as you'll see, us DT peeps actually found this pretty fun...and SOME found treasures that might have been hidden for some time, LOL.

I have to tell you that The Greeting Farm's Blog is HOPPING with excitement today!  Here's why:

We have a SPRING CLEANING Challenge today for Farm Fresh Friday!

Use something you either:
 a.) found that you forgot you had or 
b.) were going to throw OUT but decided to use it for this challenge."  On your honor!  Make it fun!


So,do ya ever have an embellie or scrap laying around that you love and just wont part with but you are SICK of looking at ?   See the little Blue gem in the shape of a flower on my card?   Yep, that would be "Bob".  Bob the Blue Gem.   This was a running joke between a few friends of mine and me-friends that have seen me go through THREE different ways to store my embellies...Bob here came along for the ride every time.  I just couldn't find anything bright enough or appropiriate to use it on and then it became the running joke...



Well, alas, Bob found a home today...thanks to the AMAZINGLY adorable Nerdy Bird Collection of DP by Sassafrass Lass, I was able to match him up color-wise and followed this week's Taylored Expressions TESC Sketch to try and make this a little bit whimsical, too :)  Speaking of TE, the beautiful Blue Butterfly was given to me by no other than the FABULOUS and UBER-talented Sankari Wegman!  Isn't it awesome?    Sankari is one of the most creative and SWEETEST people I know-I'm so glad i met her!


Here's the inside of the card which also uses  the very last BG Bloomer that I had on the card:




Hope u like!  That cute new little Anya is from our "Spotlight" kit, which will be released on the 15th!  Isn't she a sweetheart!


Be sure to stop by the TGF Blog to see ALL the happenings!  You won't want to miss this fun challenge and the AMAZING eye candy over there right now!


Live, love, laugh, and smile...
Jess:)
