Farming on the weekend!

Happy Saturday everyone!
Normally I try to give you a break from my rambling but I wanted to get my Anya in before the challenges ended. ;) There are so many wonderful sites that challenge you to use your stash of The Greeting Farm rubber.
This is a sketch that I used from TGF's Fresh Farm Friday:

Jessica's sketch was so fun to work with! I love when the image is the focal point of a card, especially if it's a cutie like Sing. I also made this card with two other Anya-loving challenge sites:
Anya Ink's challenge of pink and brown (thank you Tammy for the info!)
and Anyone for Anya's 'You're Anya' challenge to design a card that represents who you are. Let's just say that Sing and I have a lot in common!
Here she is closer up:

I added freckles to Anya's face as I have been cursed - er - blessed with them myself. I wanted to go with the Hawaiian theme for obvious reasons, and although it has been a while since I touched an ukulele, I still listen to my music to remind me of home.
And speaking of, look at this cute little eyelet phrase I found in my stash:

Perfect for my card! Here's a couple of other tidbits about me that makes me love Sing so much:
~*I am always in slippers (flip flops as it is known here). I don't care if there's snow out, I still wear them to check the mail then regret it afterwards.
~*Every Thursday, another football mom and I show up at the game with our flowers in our hair to cheer on our boys. You can't miss us in the bleachers. :D
Have a wonderful weekend everyone! I will be back tomorrow with a fun post regarding Whimsie Doodles - you won't want to miss it!
*Love and Aloha*
