A Berry Special Hello!

Happy Monday everyone!!  I'm sorry that my post is late, had a busy Sunday and didn't get a chance to finish my post.  So thank you for your patience!!

Today at the Farm Fresh Challenge blog we are excited to have a new card to CASE.  Today's pick was chosen by our very own Island Mama, 1LuvNMama.  She chose Tanya Tahir's card and I had so much fun CASE'ing it.  Here's a peek at Tanya's fantastik card:

I really like all the polka dots going on here, as well as the use of her patterned paper.  For my card, I chose to use the adorable Amelia from the OA My Fav Thing stamp set.  If you can believe it, I have never inked her up!  I know, so I made up for it by inking her up for today's card. 

Yes, PINK hair!!!  I wanted to make up for the no pink challenge, and boy did I!  hahaha.  I've always pictured this particular Amelia with pink hair, she so reminded me of Strawberry Shortcake.  Gave her some yellow sparklies and not really sure how the cupcake comes in to play, but I gave that a bit of sparkle too.  I think I might have gone overboard with the patterned papers.  What's funny is that I only used 2 different sheets from the same paper pad.  But boy are they bright!  As you can see, I was going for a berry theme today and the strawberry in her hair matched the pp I chose.  The color scheme is a bit out there for me, but I think I do like it.  Must be because of all the brown that cut the brightness of the pinks & greens.  hehehe.

For more inspiration, check out how the design team case'd Tanya's card HERE.  We'd love to see your wonderful creations in the Galleria.  So if you're ready to play along, all you have to do is upload your card or project to the TGF Galleria>FarmFreshChallenges2011>Monday Case Mystery>Tanya Tahir.  I'm excited to see what inspires you and how that inspiration transforms into something fabulous.   A reminder on the challenge details:

  • Use ANY TGF image
  • Upload project to the Galleria by Sunday, 12 pm CST
  • Winner will be randomly chosen to win a free single TGF image.
  • Most importantly.... HAVE FUN!!
In closing, I just wanted to say Mahalo for your lovely comments yesterday.  My mom had a really gr8 birthday.  We took her to El Torito for dinner, and came back to the house to enjoy the Lemon Meringue cake.  She was really surprised when she opened her gift from all of us.  We all pitched in and got her an Kindle or e-reader.  She was really excited.  We also purchased a Lakers cover for the Kindle.  She really liked that. : )

Okie dokie, have a wonderful Monday, and a fantastik week.  Mahalo for stopping by!
