The TGF CHA Relay Card that Wasn't...but is perfect for FFF!

So The Greeting Farm Blog was having a CHA Relay where you hopped in a blog hop of Design Team members to collect the recipe for making a card--10 items in all--and then you had just 1 day to get a card made! I was going to do it, but having the 6 month old little munchkin, just stole my extra time. So I didn't get it finished until last night. Bummer. But I still wanted to share it with my blogging friends because I think it's super cute--and because it works perfectly with Farm Fresh Friday for The Greeting Farm: SEWING!

The *ingredients*: TGF stamp, copics, ribbon, punches, buttons, touch of sparkle, flowers, cardstock, patterened paper, and stitching.

Here is my creation featuring Hope from a now retired Hope &Grace set...

I know! She's just so darn cute! I love this paper by Stampin' Up and am sad that it retired and that I didn't buy MORE of it! LOL! I am leaning heavily towards nice spring colors in my themes right now. Probably because we are so entrenched in winter weather still--like most of you are too!

The layout for this card comes from the beautiful creativity of Anita on the Meljen Designs Design Team...I just loved THIS CARD that she shared and made a note to use the layout for one of my own cards.

For Challenges:

Thanks for looking!
