Farm Fresh Friday with TGF

Today for the Greeting Farm challenge is a sketch challenge. Sometimes circles throw me off, but I finally got this card to come together for me!

Paper: Basic Grey Eva
Stamps: the Greeting Farm
Copics, Basic Grey Buttons, and Crystal Stickles

With so much going on this year with the house, my car, both of Catherine's and Scott's weddings this summer, we knew we wouldn't be able to do anything big for our anniversary. Since Brent's never been, we're taking a short trip over the long holiday weekend up to Orcas Island. I haven't been there since I was 13, so I'm really looking forward to it. But have no fear, I will have scheduled posts for you!

Everyone have a wonderful and {SAFE} 4th of July!

ETA: On a much more personal note, my grandma is terminally ill. Though it's a sad time, my grandma has been sick for many years. I'm not quite sure how things will turn out over the next week, so at any moment I may be heading home. I have scheduled posts through Sunday, but if you don't see anything new and it seems I'm MIA, you'll know where I am...and I didn't get lost at sea. :) Okay, I just had to throw in some humor to lighten the mood.


  1. I'm sorry to hear about your grandmother. My thoughts and prayers are with your family. On a happier note I hope you guys have a fantastic anniversary! You have definitely been busy! And I love your card. I have such a hard time with those busy patterns, but you always seem to make such gorgeous creations with them! Wishing you a great weekend hun!

  2. Your card is so cute!

    Enjoy your anniversary! Know, too, I'm thinking about you and your family during this difficult time. It's hard to lose someone you care about regardless of the length of their illness. Take care.
