Farm Fresh Friday

Let's take a quick break from posting older cards to show one I just made today. It's the Farm Fresh Friday challenge once again over at The Greeting Farm and we had a new sketch to play with. Can I just say I love that my day off from work coincides with the new challenge days 'cause that way I can jump in and create right away... fun, fun, fun! :)
I had some scraps of the fishy Doodlebug papers still sitting on my desk from a previous project so my inspiration totally came from that. Especially once I realized how perfect a match in style the Greeting Farm stamps are to Doodlebug's designs, both are very playful and kinda cartoon-y looking.

I only did some slight altering to the mermaid stamp by swiping the ink off of her closed eyes before I stamped and then drawing in some open eyes for her to see all her little friends with.

OH! I wondered what was different with her, then I realized you changed her eyes. Great idea! There are some Anya's that I love but I sometimes wish I could have their eyes open. Now I know how to do it! Thanks!
