MM with Tracey P!

Hello friends!   Happy Monday!!  Hope you all had a great weekend.  Mine was pretty good.  Started on Friday with one of my BFFs, Jackie.  We had dinner at Charlie's Trio (Italian restaurant) and then went to watch the movie, Conan the Barbarian.  Dinner was yummy!!  The movie not so good.  I had a feeling it wouldn't be that great, but I had to go and support Jason Momoa.  Poor guy, the editing was really bad.  The story was so choppy.  I hope there is an extended version, because there were some scenes that were badly put together.  I'm hoping his next movie with Sylvester Stallone is much better.  The rest of my weekend was spent working on projects for this week.

This week over at the Farm Fresh Challenge blog we have another card to case.  Our team captain Rachel is this week's host and she picked a good one!  You'll probably recognize our MM "host" this week because it's TGF's very own Farmer...TraceyP ;0)   Rachel has had this card on her list to use for MM for awhile and then she up and made the DT, but she still wanted to use it because it's just sooooo adorable!  Don't you think so too?

I have to say, I completely agree with Rachel.  Tracey did an amazing job with this card and I'm so glad we got a chance to case her.  For more lovely inspirations check out the Farm Fresh Challenge blog, who knows there might be a familiar face there that hasn't played in a while.

For my card I went with a similar layout.  This time I didn't have any problems with the window.  Lesson learned.  hehe...  I made a birthday card using Amelia from the TGF O&A Just for You set.   The dp is from DCWVs Nana's Kitchen Matstack.  I just love this stack.  So many wonderful glittery pages and lovely designs to choose from. 

The balloons and swirls are from the C.C. Designs cutters from ATS.  I colored those with Copics.  The blue glitter dots are Viva Glitter Liner in Sapphire.  The cupcakes are a border punch from EK Success.  The stars are punches from Marvy Uchida and the sentiment is from the same O&A Just for You set.   Used stickles all over the card.  Especially on Amelia's outfit. 

The cupcakes also have crystal lacquer on them, they look like chocolate ganache.  If you look closely you'll see some cupcakes stamped on the kraft cs.  The stamp is a stubby from Stamps by Judith.

I used embroidery floss in white on the bottom and you might see some of my fake stitching.  Ya, my sewing isn't too straight, so it's just easier for me to fake them.  There you have it, let me know what you think.

Alrighty my friends, it's time for you to get your creative juices flowing and figure out how you want to case Tracey's card.  Remember you can either case the card exactly (layout, etc...) or you can use it as an inspiration, as long as we can see that you used the MM card as your reference you are eligible for the prize.

The Mystery Monday contest runs until Sunday, entries are due by 12 PM CST.  The winner is chosen by random draw and will win a free TGF single stamp of choice, so good luck!   Please post your cards in the TGF Galleria - Home > Farm Fresh Challenges 2011 > Mystery Mondays > TraceyP.

Mahalo for stopping by and hope you have a great Monday!!
