Hello sweet friends.  For those of you in the States, I hope you had a fabulous holiday!  We went to a cook-out with lots of yummy food and also went to see our local fireworks.  Even though we live in a tiny little town, thanks to lots of local businesses donating $$$ we have an amazing fireworks display each year :)  So anyway, we have a new Farm Fresh Friday challenge starting over on the Greeting Farm Blog today.  Our lovely Rosie chose our theme this week and she wants to see "red, white & blue with ribbon". 

I used this adorable Do Si Do Anya on my card.  Of course you don't have to make a "patriotic" card ... just be sure to use the colors Rosie is requesting :)   I've colored this sweetie with copics and colored pencils.  I used my Doodlebug Designs paper and cut circles with my nestabilities, and cut some stars using my star die.  I added some ribbon and tied on a little tag to finish my card.  Please be sure to stop by the Greeting Farm Blog to see what the rest of the DT is sharing.  I hope you play along with us this week because of course there's a chance to win some yummy rubber! 

Thanks for stopping by.

Hugs, Anita
