Farm Fresh First: Red White & Blue

Happy first of July my blogging peeps! So I know I've been missing for quite a while, but I have a good reason, swearsies! (I've always wanted to say that :D ) Seriously though, we got news that my hubby was in fact deploying, so our leave took place about a month earlier than it would have. I had a lovely two week vacation in Texas visiting family and it truly went by too quickly! Have you guys gone on summer vacay yet? With Independence day fast approaching (3 days away) We over at The Greeting Farm decided to dedicate this month's challenge to celebrating our country's Independence. For the entire month of July, we wanna see your patriotic side, show us that RED WHITE and BLUE! In honor of our brave soldiers (especially mine :D ) I altered a TGF cutie for the occasion Double Cupcake Anya

I'd actually altered and colored up this adorable little lady months ago, anticipating a red white and blue challenge. I loved the way she came out and could not wait to add her to a card. Last year I purchased the Bo Bunny "Anthem" 6x6 DP pad and of course, was not able to use it after the 4th, as is the case usually with themed paper pads. I knew I would hardly have a reason to use it but it was so adorable and perfect I couldn't resist. The image was colored up with my copics and a bit of stickles glitter glue. I didn't want to take away from the pretty white washed wooden background so I simply added a few matching sequins. The sentiment comes from the 4x6 Dollie with Kitty set (also from The Greeting Farm). I thought it was perfect considering my soldier is so far from home, I plan to send it to him and let him know that just because he's not physically here doesn't mean he's not on our minds and in our hearts. Be sure to stop by The Greeting Farm's Blog and see what the other DT gals have to show you guys, it'll have you seeing stars! Until next time,
