Farm Fresh Friday Color Challenge

The color challenge this week was Chocolate Chip, Baja Breeze, Kiwi Kiss, and Whisper White. Some of you can relate...I had to bust out my very secret stash of old In Colors to do this challenge. This was my last sheet of Baja Breeze designer paper...so whoever gets this card better LOVE it, lol. Thanks Arlene for the awesome ribbon too! Okay, back to hoarding...I only have 1/2 a pack left of Kiwi Kiss cardstock.

Paper: SU
Stamps: The Greeting Farm, sentiment is Amuse
Nestabilities, Copics, Pearls, SU Ribbon, Crystal Stickles, PTI Buttons, Prima Flowers, and Twine

Since we're going home for Christmas...that also means no Christmas tree for Brent and I. Here is the lovely tree that in my office lobby. I have decided that when I'm older and retired...I want to be a professional Christmas tree decorator. The elderly lady that comes and puts up our tree every year is just fabulous!



Everyone have a great hump day!

  1. Wonderful card, Sparkle. LOVE the colors and the image.

    The tree looks wonderful. Wouldn't that be a great job...decorating trees for a living? Making the world just a bit more beautiful for others. Neat!

    I hope you have a happy Wednesday. I was gonna say something about the Biggest Loser, but thought...maybe you had to record it or something, so I'll keep my lips zipped.

  11. What a fantastic card! I love everything about it!! Those colors are wonderful!

    Wouldn't professional christmas tree decorating be a blast? I'd love to have free reign on getting all new decorations for someone's tree and making it just beautiful. I love to decorate ours, but I haven't yet this year. We got it on Sunday and it's standing in our livingroom in it's stand, but still baled up, lol. Hopefully we'll let it loose tonight. It's huge!! I'll have to get some photos on my blog. Have a great day!
