TGF's Farm Fresh Friday -- Birthday Recipe!

Hi!  Is it Friday yet??  Geez, long week.  I've been waking up every morning wondering if it's Friday yet.  So today I took the time to actually nap.  And maybe that's what I needed.  I didn't sleep too soundly though but feel a bit more refreshed.  And now it's pouring here as I write this post.  Hate to pick up the kids in this kind of weather.  Hopefully the rain will ease up by then.

Well, it's finally time for a new Farm Fresh Friday!  This week Shaela has a Birthday Recipe for us.  She is challenging us to create a project with: a birthday theme, use a boy TGF image, and the colors orange, turquoise/aqua & silver.  Got it?  Not too bad, right?  We all need extra bday cards handy.

I chose Oliver from Surprise.  It's the first time I have stamped him and this set was still untrimmed.  Oh boy.  I am trying not to buy too many new stamps since I still seem to find ones that I haven't trimmed yet.  The letters were die cut from PTI felt using PTI's alphabet dies. 

I didn't really have super shiny silver even though I used a metallic silver pencil to color in his shoes and the bow on the present.  Still looks grey but that's what I got. 

Please check out TGF's blog for all the challenge details and to see the cute birthday projects by the Showcase DT.

Thanks for reading!

That's quite a challenge....but you rocked it! Oliver is one of my favs because once he's colored...he has the most pinchable cheeks, each and every time!
Cute your take on this week's FFF.

I know, somehow the weekend went by so fast and this week was so slow, even with all the new TV shows! Maybe my schedule was messed up. I'm actually commenting in the morning today.

Cute boy card! Nice coloring! Wow, you actually had patterned paper that fit the color scheme too!
