The Greeting Farm - Farm Fresh Friday Challenge

Hi Friends!! It's Farm Fresh challenge time again at The Greeting Farm. The challenge is to use flowers and butterflies to your card. Okay. . .this is simple! I add flowers to my cards all the time! LOL! I decided to use Ms. Anya again. She's one cute chick and so fun to color.

I colored Anya with my Copic Markers and used scrap DPs from my scrap pile. I'm making great efforts to reduce my scrap pile and I'm trying my hardest not to cut up new designer paper. I decided to use lace on my card again. I bought a bunch of lace a while ago and recently came across them in one of my drawers.

I think I'm going on a spending freeze on craft stuff. I really want a wide angle lens for my camera before we go on our European trip in December. My husband refuses to buy me a $500 lens so I will have to save my money. Okay. . .I don't work so what money am I going to save? LOL!

I think I will need to sell my cards and some of my craft stuff to buy that lens. I really want the lens. . . .badly. I'm terrible when I want something. . .I have to "have" it. Ugggh!

Anyway. . .stop by the Greeting Farm blog site and check out the challenge!!

There's a prize to be given out and I want it since I can't buy it. LOL! Wish me luck!

Hope you all have a wonderful Sunday!

Maria,
You always make the most beautiful cards! Love the flowers and the layout. I try to "case" your layouts! I think they are the best.

Adorable card Maria!! I want to come play in your scrap pile~yummy papers! Good luck on the challenge and getting your lense!! :D

Great card, and awesome coloring. I do hope you get your lense :)
And what do you mean you do not work?? You are your family's personal chef, housekeeper, accountant, chauffeur, life partner that makes his life easy by taking care of the family and children, so he does not have the stress of work and all the responsibilities of running a household, if you do the things you do for corp america you would get paid well. :)

Marvelous card, Maria!! I love the little unexpected details like the pink hair and the heart shaped flower centers.

You go girl. Save for the camera lens. You won't regret it. You can buy more craft stuff later.
