FFF - Congratulations!

Sorry for the late post.  As you all know, Blogger was down for most of yesterday and just came back up.  So hopefully none of you went into withdrawals or got too upset about it.  Now that it's back to normal here's what I was going to post this morning, Enjoy! :)

Happy Friday the 13th! dun dun donnnn... hahaha...  Hopefully today is a gr8 day for everyone, but if you see a guy in a ski mask run the other way!!  Just playin'!  A little Friday the 13th humor.  : )

Today at the Farm Fresh challenge blog we are having a new contest and it's to create a congratulatory card/project.  Anything goes.  If you have a special grad, an anniversary, someone's promotion, ANYTHING  you want to congratulate that special person with we want to see it.  For more details and some inspiration from the FFC ladies click HERE.

My DS is graduating today from Nursing school.  It's been a wonderful process for her since she's transitioned from being in sales for over 20 years.  We are planning to drive up in a few hours and then spend the rest of the day celebrating her accomplishment.  I knew the perfect image I wanted to use for my card and the colors just came together as soon as I finished coloring her up.  Hope you like it:

  I chose to go a bit girly here with pinks, whites and shimmer all on some brown cs.  I think Cheeky Nurse was the perfect choice for my card.  My sister is a bit cheeky, so it works.  Went with a very simple layout because of all the shimmer cs and that pink polka dot dp.  I used a MS flower punch and beautiful pearl accents.  For the sentiment I found inspirations from Kadie Ensley's card as I was in the TGF Gallery and I thought it was so appropriate, I hand wrote it myself.  The quote is from Henry David Thoreau.

I think on the inside of the card I'm just going to go very simple with the same white and pink papers write up the rest of the quote inside as well as my message to her.  So what do you think?  Will she like it?  I hope so.

I hope to see plenty of entries this week, since everyone should have someone to congratulate, yea?  Here's a reminder of all the details:
  • 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> Congratulations.
I hope you all have a wonderful Friday and a terrific weekend creating.  Mahalo for stopping by!
