Thinking of You...

Hello Everybody!
Today, I have for you, a card that I made for the TGF Farm Fresh Fridays challenge - "You're Hot and You're Cold"...the challenge this week was to create a project with either a hot theme or a cold theme...I made a cold/autumn themed card and boy, does this image make me want to pull out my Uggs and slip those cozy things on!...well, that and the fact that my feet are freezing in my house today!  Vancouver had GORGEOUS weather these past few weeks and was in the 30's...Celsius of course!  That's high 80's-low 90's in Farenheit!  However, it clouded over yesterday and now it's about 15 degrees Celsius..that's about 59 degrees Farenheit...burrr!

Well, enough chit-chat, here it is:

I used three different TGF stamps on this card...Special Autumn, Blush Bonnie (sentiment), and I don't think it's very noticeable but, if you look closely, I used Blush Hello on the background paper with the blue grid...I wanted it to be subtle so I stamped it with Tim Holtz Distress Ink in Old Paper which I also used to distress each piece of paper!  This card is pretty straight forward, I just distressed all of the edges using the CTMH Edge Distresser and then used my nails to distress them even more and curl up the edges, assembled the card base and background papers, coloured this cutie with Copics (see supply list below) and cut her out with my Tim Holtz by Tonic scissors and craft knife (for the inner parts), and popped her up with pop dots...added some pearls, a sentiment which I also stamped with Distress Ink in Old Paper and finally, a matching flower which I also inked with that same Distress Ink, and Voila, done!

Gorgeous, gorgeous, gorgeous! I can fall in love with your creations over and over again... especially the TGF ones. Have you created anything with your Sparkle stamps yet?


I love this Naomi!! We've had pretty much the same weather pattern you mentioned and yep, it sure makes you want to start pulling out all things fall! Her little Uggs and vest are adorable and I am especially lovin' her hair!
