Using the Sketch Literally


Hello Everyone!
First off I just wanted to say how exciting it is that I'm meeting new people through the blog candy I'm offering. I truly appreciate all the comments and read them all. And while it's harder for me to visit every blog from the Candy drawing, I will try and visit all of you who leave comments on my cards. Thank you SO much!

AND now...for today's card!! It's Friday, so that means it's another Farm Fresh Friday challenge over at The Greeting Farm! Every Friday there is a challenge for customers to play in (and possibly win a prize). Some weeks it's a color challenge, some week's an inspiration or a theme and sometimes, like today, it's a FUN Sketch challenge!!
This week Farmer Mary has provided us with the sketch and if you've been over at the TGF blog already this morning and spied all the DT samples, then you'll notice that I literally USED this sketch! LOL! I just couldn't resist because Mary did such a fabulous job of shading the different elements in beautiful earth tones. I couldn't help but be inspired!
Wild Sprout DeeDee is the featured stamp on my card and my absolute favorite part of her to color is her HAIR! Such fun hair. Her outfit is adorable too! Okay, she's just plain ADORABLE altogether.

I do apologize for the lighting. My good camera is at work and for some reason I have a harder time with the lighting at my house than at work. So for that reason it may be harder to read the sentiment "hugs," which is from the O&A Buddies set (also TGF). There are a few more pics that I've added below. One shows that I layered up the sketch to give it dimension and add the stitching and another is a little bit clearer sentiment. :)

And that's what's going on over here on this FAB Friday!
I hope you all have a GREAT weekend!

Hi Kadie,

I really like your cards!!! They are so beautiful and I love the papers you use.
How do you get the sitching on the cards? Do you really use a sewing machine - there are so many stiches...wow.
I`ll be back here more offten.

I thought the colors on the sketch were fantastic too and seriously thought of doing the same thing but didn't have the right stuff. Your card is so cute and the pic looks fine!

This is FANTASTIC! When you emailed it to me I saved it but didn't really have a chance to look til later-then when I posted FFF, Heather and I were actually on the phone and we both said, OMG, she USED the sketch...I mean, she USED the sketch! LOL! You are SO clever miss Kadie girl-this is GORGEOUS!!!!

EEEEK! I love how you really used the sketch!!! I'm so flattered that you liked it so much to incorporate it in such a fabulous way. Dee Dee is colored up so sweetly and goes perfect against the earth colored background.

Great card! I love the stitching (I can never get my stitching to look that good!) and the little tag at the bottom. Love it!
