Farm Fresh Friday

Happy Farm Fresh Friday my crafty pals! With St. Patrick's day right around the corner we over at The Greeting Farm wanted to show our St Paddy's day spirit with this week's challenge, Luck of the Irish! So go ahead and get green with us and if shamrocks and gold coins aren't your thing, don't worry its not necessary. The rules of this challenge are a color combo, all you have to do is use green and white to enter. I love the idea of getting to use my much neglected green copic marker combos so all that was left to do was decide which fabby TGF stamp I wanted for the challenge. I ended up not being able to decide, so I created two different cards using 2 different TGF stamps so you're in for a double treat!




Now I'm sure you probably noticed that these stamps don't look completely familiar and you're right. I love the versatility of TGF stamps because they can be tweaked to fit themes without changing the fabulousness of the stamp. To make Slumber fit the St. Patrick's day theme I wanted for my card, I wiped away the roses in her hair with a baby wipe and drew in a few clovers instead with a copic multiliner. For Dollie, I wiped away the cupcake on her plate and replaced it with a big foaming mug of beer... butterbeer! Haha no alcohol for my TGF cuties :D this big HP fan gave one of her fave Dollie darlings a big cold glass of butterbeer and a clover in her hair instead of the heart that was there originally. Doesn't she make an adorable waitress? Both images were colored up with my copic markers on Cryogen White cardstock. I added eucalyptus stickles here and there for some much needed sparkle. The sentiments are from Lawn Fawn and the dies used were a combination of LaLa Land Crafts (heart ribbon corner and stitched circles) and Poppy dies (banner). The shamrocks were created by taking the hearts left over from the heart ribbon corner die and arranging them in the shape of a clover and adding stickles. Don't forget to pop over to The Greeting Farm and see what my teamies have come up with to inspire you. Get your green on and join in on the Saint Paddy's day fun, can't wait to see what you come up with!
Lots-O-Love
