Throwback Thursday with Fuzzy Wuzzy

Hi all!!!
It's me, Farmer Becca, here with this weeks Throwback thursday. I just love Throwback Thursdays, as it is an excuse (like I need another one!!! LOL) to pull out some of my fave older Greeting Farm stamps and give them some inky love!
Well, this week I am getting into the holiday spirit a bit. The weather is getting colder, I have been wearing my favorite boots, I am looking forward to spending the holidays with my wonderful family, the stores are already decorating and playing Christmas music, and I have only one more day of teaching before a week off for the holiday break! Yipppppeeeee. All of those things put me in a great mood, and set my sights on much needed crafty time.
Ok, back to my inspiration for today. Due to this cold weather/holiday spirit I am in, I chose to showcase Amelia from the Fuzzy Wuzzy set. I just LOVE her!!!!
Isnt she adorable? I love this set as it is so versatile. You can use it for any occasion, and the sentiments that come with it are perfect for those winter season cards. LOVE them!!!
I hope I have inspired you today to ink up some of your older favorites. The colder weather really makes me want to lock myself in my warm craft room with a cup of hot chocolate, and just play all day! I hope we all get the opportunity! Thanks for joining me today. Now, let's get crafty!!!!!!!!

I am roses Altered Cigar box

I have a project that I created last month that I have not shared on my blog yet. I wanted to showcase all the amazing I am Roses flowers that I used, as they are just my faves, and oh so gorgeous. This project is an altered cigar box that I created for a swap that I was in. I loved creating this, and adore the way that it came out.
I used graphic 45, renaissance Faire, papers for this box, I love the color scheme of this paper collection, and it matched perfectly for the fall theme I was trying to create. I distressed all the edges of the papers with my Distrezz-it-all, and Vintage Photo distress ink.
First, I painted the box with black acrylic paint. I added lots of Tim Holtz bobbles to the front lid, as I love the vintage feel of them. The dream lettering is some foam letters from my stash, I stamped them with a French Script stamp, then sprayed them with red Velvet Glimmer Mist and distressed them with Vintage Photo distress ink.
I also decorated the inside with more of the design paper. I also added some brown lace and a ribbon with a vintage garment pin and a token charm to the inside lid.
I used lots of I am Roses flowers on the outside of the box. I used the 3" white roses R78-15 (which I painted with red Velvet Glimmer Mist), 1.5" white roses R21-1 (which I painted with Walnut Gold Glimmer Mist), and Classic Color Cherry Blossoms S3-310.
Thank you for stopping by today to see my creation. Stop by I am Roses to see all the wonderful paper flowers they have to choose from, they will blow your mind!
