Farm Fresh Friday - Throwback Challenge #3!

The throwback challenge requires you to break out your "old" TGF sets (which let's face it...aren't that old, lol). At the bottom of the post there is an "Exclusion List" which has the last several months worth of TGF releases on it. The deal is that you can use anything on your project BUT those stamps. So dust off your very first TGF purchases and make them shine again :0)

It's time for another super fun Throwback challenge and this time we have a 'Fancy Folds' theme!  Easel, tri-fold, Pop-up, gatefold, we don't care, just show us your older TGF stamps on a "Fancy Fold" card!

I used one of my favorite "vintage" TGF sets, 'Oliver and Amelia - Happy Day'.  I just love Oliver because he reminds me a ton of my son and his little dinosaur friends give me the opportunity to break out my old dinosaur border punch.  I did an easel card here and let me tell ya,  MAN did I make it way harder than it needed to be, lol.  That's what I get for not doing a "different" card in a long time. 

Stamps - TGF O&A Happy Day, Kids Quotes
Paper - Fancy Pants Beach Bum
EK Success Dinosaur border punch
CC's Cutters Die - Banner Tags
Viva Decor pearl pen - Kiwi

Oh, I love that set Rach. I remember when it first debuted I wanted it right away. Since then the O&A sets have been one of my favs. This is adorable and I can see how much he reminds you of your boy. Love that dinosaur punch and these papers are fab. Gorgeous coloring and this easel card rocks! Have a great Friday my friend! Hugs,
