A Very Special Birthday Blog Hop for a Very Special Friend and Stamper - Combined with today's Farm Fresh Friday Challenge for The Greeting Farm. Jess you know I love you to make this project just for you with your favorite colors even BROWN!!!!

Happy Birthday Jess Blog Hop, and "Dont

 Forget to Floss"

 Farm Fresh Friday Challenge

Hello and Happy Happy Friday Everyone!!!

So today is a very special day!!!!  It is my Good Friend Jess's Birthday and as Jess is also the DT coordinator for The Greeting Farm - Farmers DT, Club Anya DT, Critter Crew DT, and Scrap Book Kit DT we all wanted to have a Happy Birthday Blog Hop with most of us DT girls to tell Jess just how much we love her!!!!

Most of you know Jess as The Whimsical Butterfly and if you know her you know two of her favorite colors are PINK and my personal most unfavored horrible allergy to color BROWN. 

So Jess will know when she sees this just how much I love her because Just for her I worked with that horrible ooooogly color Brown just for her!!!  I also added lots of her favorite color Pink!!!!  Jess loves to write and keep track of feelings and events and actions and events from your family and her daily life so I thought it would be fun to make her a Journal for her Birthday!!!!


So today just for Jess you can hop along with us and then leave comments on entries as you wish, but to win the Prize you have to leave Jess a special Birthday Greeting on The Greeting Farm Blog by Sunday night!!!!

So you came to my Blog from the Fabulous Jen from The Critter Crew DT's Blog and after you are done with your visit here, you will head on out to the next stop on the Birthday Blog Hop to sweet and talented Kristy's Blog!!!

Here is a list of all the Farmers and Critter Crew links for our Normal Farm Fresh Friday posts if you need to get to any of  the links, but most of the DT is all doing the blog hop today too!!!

So this weeks challenge is "Don't Forget to Floss Challenge" So I combined my Birthday Project for Jess with the Floss Challenge which is to use embroidery Floss on your Card or Project.  I used twine embroidery Floss and sewed some of the letters on the "Happy Birthday Jess" sign on the Journal with the twine embroidery floss.

I used SU card stock in Chocolate Chip, Pretty in Pink, Pixie Pink, and Tempting Turquoise on the Project and the SU stamp set Delight in Life.  I used the same colors of ink as the Card Stock and Chocolate Chip ink to distress around the "Happy Birthday Jess" part of the journal.  All the layers are popped up using excess foam and rubber from my TGF Stamps.
I colored the Pinto Pony image from The Greeting Farm in these copics:
Fur: E31, E35, E39, RV00, RV02, RV06, B00, B02
Grass: G20, G21, G24,
Birds: W00, B60
Here is the "Happy Birthday Jess" Part of the Journal you can see the letters I sewed with the twine embroidery floss.
And one last view of the Journal so you can see some of the dimension on the Journal.

Well I hope you have a very FUN time on the Fun Birthday Blog Hop for my Friend Jess and I hope you play along in the Farm Fresh Challenge this week just link your project up to The Greeting Farm Gallery for this weeks challenge "Don't Forget to Floss" by this coming Wednesday Night!!!!

Have a Very Very Stampendous Friday everyone!!!!
