So I got an order the other day that included some new Collectable papers by My Mind's Eye and as soon as I laid eyes on the Remarkable range I knew I had to make a boy card with it. And since I planned on coloring up an Ian stamp from The Greeting Farm I hopped on over to the TGF blog to see what the new Farm Fresh Friday challenge was and if it would work with my plan. At first I was a bit disappointed when I saw that it is lace and ribbon... more of a girly look than what I wanted to do. But then I remembered this great piece of twill ribbon that I've had that would definitely keep with the more masculine theme and still allow me to play along with the challenge. It already had these metal grommets in it and I went ahead and added some enamel dots to them for little pops of color on the twill. Oh, and I toned down the white letter stickers a bit by coloring them with my E40 marker, which helped the 'wishing you' to match better with the papers.
As for Mr. Ian, I did a head swap because I wanted to get Sitting Casual Ian standing up. So I grabbed oldie but goodie Dress Me Ian and found the perfect outfit too. A little snip snip of the scissors and Casual Ian had a brand new body to show off. I know I bring it up every time that I use the old Dress Me set but I'm still keeping my fingers crossed that someday we will get an updated Dress Me set with open eyed Anya and Ian and brand new outfits to add to their wardrobe. A girl can dream any way. ;)
Ok, it's time for me to get ready for work.
