4th of July in May

Happy Friday Everyone! 
If you're still having issues with commenting on certain blogs, it might be the browser you are using.  I had been using Internet Explorer, but recently found out from Kim Yu and a few other blogging buds that Firefox would probably be better and it's free!!  Once I switched over and cleared the cache and cookies I was able to comment on the blogs that  I couldn't before.  Click HERE for the link to figure out how to clear those items.  Hope this helps relieve some stress and frustrations!  
Thanks Kim and to the blogging buddies for your help! :)
Now on to my Farm Fresh Friday Challenge inspiration:

Hahaha, no, it's not July 4th yet, but for today let's just pretend it is.  Why?  Because today over at the Farm Fresh Challenge blog we are having a new and fun challenge, create a card or project of your favorite HOLIDAY!  Whether it's Christmas, Thanksgiving, Valentine's or Halloween.  There are so many fun and favorite holidays to choose from.  To see what the ladies of the DT chose for their favorite holidays be sure to stop by the FFC blog or click HERE.  We would also love to know why you chose that particular holiday so make sure to leave us a little story when you post to the gallery. 

I chose the 4th of July.  BBQs featuring hot dogs & burgers.  Fireworks of all kinds.  Friends and family getting together to celebrate Independence Day.  Why wouldn't it be fun?!  Here I have Twirl Anya in her Red, White & Blue outfit ready to celebrate the day.
I colored her up with Copics, and did the same with the pinwheel.  In the center of the pinwheel is a clear gem.  The background paper is from a very old paper pack from DCWV.  I think it might be a summer stack.  All the other patterned papers are from the same stack.  I used Jen Shults' Deconstructed sketch #2 for the layout.   The sentiment is from the Roll Call kit.

Here are the details for every FFF challenge:

  • The FFF challenge is open until Thursday, entries are due by 12 PM CST. So you certainly have plenty of time to get started.
  • Use ANY TGF image
  • The winner will be chosen by Rachel or Jessica.
  • Winner will receive a free single TGF stamp of choice as well as a limited edition badge.
  • Please upload your challenge card/projects to TGF Galleria> Farm Fresh Challenges 2011> Farm Fresh Fridays 2011> Favorite Holiday.
I hope you all have a wonderful Friday and a terrific weekend.  Mahalo for stopping by! ; )
