You and me...

Hello again!

It seems that my Monday posts here on the ol' blog are becoming dedicated to playing along in the TGF Farm Fresh Challenge. Because here I am again with a FFF card, this week's theme is 'Roses are Red'. I actually knew just the scrap of paper that I wanted to use since this old My Mind's Eye paper has such a pretty rose print on it. I just needed to figure out which stamp to use. At first I was looking at a couple of the SSC stamps because they have roses as part of the image but when I saw this cute couple from the My Sunshine set I ended up going in a different direction. Talk about feeling ambitious, what with getting two images on one card, but I did save myself some coloring time by paper piecing Anya's dress. I love how it turned out because I think it looks like she is wearing a beautiful vintage dress with that large floral print on the skirt. And Ian's quite the dapper dude himself, matching back to his lady love with his green sweater vest and cords. What a handsome couple they make as they hit the town on Valentine's Day. :)

Well, I had better get a move on. Thanks for dropping by!
