Farm Fresh Friday

Hello!  Thank you for stopping by today! It is time for Farm Fresh Friday! Before I will start talking about this week’s project I would like to thank you everybody who participated in the last Sew Simple Challenge. I liked all of the cards, and believe me picking a winner was a hard job! But lucky me we have Jessica who helped a lot!

Back to this week’s challenge. And it is a sketch by our incredibly talented Jessica! When I looked at this sketch I saw a frame. And here it is a faux wood frame (you can find a great tutorial at Splitcoaststampers) with cute little Trick or Treaters (stamp set Spooktacular from The Greeting Farm)! I tried to create a scene like they are standing on the stairs, but I am not great at it. So are my poor sponging skills. But I really had so much fun with this card! Would you like to play with us this week? Please stop at The Greeting Farm blog fore more fabulous samples that will surely inspire you to join us this week!


I have two more projects to show. Since I made a card for Halloween how about making a treat box. Once again I followed tutorial at Splitcoaststampers called Triangle Box.

Trick Or Treat

And here is my last one. Love this girl. Her name is Megan. She reminds me of my sister when she was small. I was like a Nanny for her till certain age. And sometimes she will stay just like this, and since I was an older sister she was always right because little ones are always right! At least that is what they think. 😉

you are amazing

Talking about little ones. Sometimes I miss that time when Sergei was 3-4 years old… I mean time when they speak very cute, when they discover something new with a big surprise on their face. Of course each moment of our kids growing is very precious, but I still miss my Sergei when he was a baby. Here is picture of  him (I was looking through the pictures yesterday and saw it, that is what brought back these memories)…

Sergei and Puzzles (when he was 4)

Wow! Another long post… Just wanted to thank you that you find time to read. Thank you much for your comments today!



P.S. Almost forgot to tell that TGF has Fall DT Call. For all of the details how to apply please read here. On my personal note working with Marie and Jessica is always a great pleasure. Even though I never met them in real life but I have the best impressions about these wonderful ladies. I never felt any pressure or anything like this; always felt that I am very important for this team; none of my projects were missed, I always heard a Thank and compliment about cards I made; if I had a question I always had an answer right away; what I like about Marie the best is that she always does what she says. I am not trying to advertise The Greeting Farm, these words come from my heart. I just wanted to share my experience with you. 🙂

    OMG Elena that Halloween card is to “die for” CUTE! You did a fantastic job on it. – Love your treat box and the cute little girl card too.

    Thanks for sharing all your wonderful thoughts as well. I can relate about wanting to keep kids in that “cute” stage as that’s how I feel sometimes about Coleen. Sergei looked so sweet in that picture with the puzzles.

  8. Wonderful projects, Elena! So many darling little images. Love the goblins. 🙂

    Your work just leaves me breathless. I’ll have to resubscribe so I can get email updates again. I don’t want to miss a single thing! These are pure perfection. That Halloween card with the frame and the spider webs. Sheer Brilliance! And the triangle box & sweet Megan–what I wouldn’t give to colour like You! :o) Adored the pic of Sergei too. Isn’t it amazing how each age has it’s special memories? Lovely to read about your wonderful experience with the Greeting Farm too. :o)

  35. kim says:

    You are going to be missed very much at The Greeting Farm. I always look forward to seeing your creation and the one today are, as usual, amazingly beautiful. Your son is adorable and I agree, I almost wish my little guy would have stayed that age forever. Today he started Fourth grade and I feel like crying because is almost as tall as I am. Thanks for all your inspiration and I will be back to check on what you are up to.
