Some Exciting News!

My second post of the day... please scroll down or click here for my 1st post! 

SO much is going on this month already and it's only day 2!!

I'm SUPER excited to share that I'm BACK as a Tiddly Inker @ Tiddly Inks!! My sweet friend Christy asked if I'd like to "re-join" the team- and with all the adorably cute new stuff she's released how could I say no?

For my first card back as an alumni I chose to go with the new Willow the Birthday Fairy image to use for this week's Pop of Poppy color challenge!



And it just so happened that I have a patterned paper stack from Little Yellow Bicycle called "Poppy"- a perfect fit if I do say so myself!

Birthday Fairy

Thanks for swinging by, hope to see you join us in this Pop of Color challenge!

Tinker Fairy

It's a new month and that means *NEW* images from Chi Chi Memories! & these definitely don't disappoint!

I couldn't wait to get Tinker Fairy colored up.. especially since a friend of mine's daughter is turning 3 in a few weeks!

I kept my card pretty simple as I wanted Tinker to be the STAR!  I also played with my new Pretty Pink Posh stitched tag die that I had been eyeing FOREVER! LOVE the little stitched lines!

and what's a fairy card without some sparkly sequins?  It's a bit hard to see in the photo, but there's also a bit of shimmer on her fairy wings too! :)

Thanks for flying by!

TGF Release Day Blog Hop!

Happy September bloggy friends!

So excited that it's finally September (one step closer to cooler weather here in AZ!) AND because it's the 1st- it means RELEASE DAY @The Greeting Farm!!!

Today, you can find ALL FOUR new sets in the shop! (Holiday Anya 4, Dollie w/Gifts, Winter Greetings & Winter Kindness!) And we're celebrating with a blog hop!!

If you didn't arrive from Chitra's blog- I  *highly* suggest you start with The Greeting Farm blog and make your way to check out everyone's fabulous creations!

BUT before we begin today's hop, we have a few special announcements.  We are welcoming Rosemary Bridges as our DT Coordinator and Joni Wilson as our Guest DT Coordinator/Special Project leader and we thrilled!  Jessica will still remain on the farm in some other capacities, but in her own words, she couldn't be more excited about these special ladies.  They have wonderful energy and will do an amazing job in their duties and are also two of the most talented crafters as well!   There's more on the blog from Jess about these new changes, but for now... let's get hoppin'!

I decided to go with the sweet girl from the Winter Kindness set! I used some embossing paste and stencil to create my background- I wanted to keep my card pretty simple, but still add some dimension to it...

With all my ♥

One lucky winner who visits all of the DT's blogs, comments, and goes back to the TGF Blog letting us know they did will take home the ENTIRE SEPTEMBER RELEASE!

Your next stop on the hop is on to the wonderful Joni!

Runway Inspired Roses!

If you're looking for my The Greeting Farm preview post please scroll down or click here!

I'm sneaking in just under the wire today to join the Runway Inspired Challenge #66!  I'd been wanting to play along all week and was waiting for some goodies to come in the mail to create the card I had in mind!



I used mostly MFT goodies to create my card (woodgrain stamp & these rose overlay dies with a few of the outer petals trimmed)

Thinking of You Roses

Finished it off with some *NEW to me* Pretty Pink Posh Sparkly Clear sequins!

Thanks for stopping by- have a FABULOUS weekend!

TGF Day 3 Preview: Winter Greetings/Kindness

HELLOOOO & HAPPY Friday!

I am so excited that it's Friday... especially since it's a Friday before a LONG weekend!

AND because it's the final day of The Greeting Farm previews... I think these sets are my favorite so far! (have I said that at every release??) Today the team is previewing 2 sets together Winter Greetings  & Winter Kindness!

AND I'm also hosting the Farm Fresh Friday challenge this week too- It's a "use your favorite embellishment!" challenge!

My favorites of the moment have been shiny sequins and enamel dots! So, with that in mind I finally decided to give making a shaker card a try. This sweet cutiepie boy (I just want to squish his cheeks!) is from the Winter Greetings set...

TGF Winter Greetings

OMGosh, I just totally LOVE these kids... so chunky, cute & cuddly! Be sure to check out the rest of the design teams' cards for their previews of the rest of the sets (you won't want to miss them!) and for your chance to win!!

All of this week's previews will be available on MONDAY, SEPTEMBER 1st!!

Happy Weekend!

TGF Preview Day 2: Dollie with Gifts

Back again with another preview from The Greeting Farm!

Today we're sharing Dollie with Gifts! I absolutely love how this line of "Dollies" is expanding... and this one is so sweet and perfect for Christmas! She'll be available in the TGF Shop September 1st!

Day 2 TGF Preview: Dollie w/Gifts

The trees and the sentiment are also apart of this set. I stamped the trees in Mowed Lawn Distress Ink (1st & 2nd generation inking)  I used some pieces of scrap paper and washi tape to create my background.

I had way too much fun coloring her...but felt like her winter coat was missing something until I thought about using some fun flock & stickles for some fun texture!

Dollie up close

Same drill as yesterday- swing by all the designers' blogs (Chitra, Jodi, Kristina Marcy) AND The Greeting Farm blog to let us know you did for your chance to win!

Don't forget to come back tomorrow for the final preview and a new Farm Fresh Friday Challenge!

TGF September Preview: HOLIDAY ANYA 4!

Happy Wednesday indeed!  August is coming to an end and that means that new stamps are coming to The Greeting Farm September 1st!!

I have to admit I literally let out an audible scream when I saw these new stamps- they are just *THAT* cute!  Our first sneak preview for you is Holiday Anya 4!

I totally love this stamp... can't wait to use it on some Christmas layouts of my nieces!!

I kept my card pretty 'CAS' as I really wanted Anya to shine all on her own! :)

Holiday Anya 4
