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!

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! :)

You're Pretty Cool!

Popping in to share one last card with the August images for Chi Chi Memories! NEW images coming next week! (Holy cow that means that it's *already* September! YIKES!)

I decided to color up the super cute Hip Hop Girl again...
Pretty Cool

I kept it pretty simple with a few bright colored scraps on some kraft, a few (DIY) enamel dots and I called this card done! :)

Thanks for stopping by!

Farm Fresh Friday: Anything Goes!

Happy Friday!!!

It's an ANYTHING GOES challenge today over at The Greeting Farm today!

Now, I'm definitely far from a football fan- but with it being pre-season I haven't heard the end of "WOOHOO it's football season!" or "YAY Football!" from my husband- LOL.  Anyone else out there in the same boat?

Anyway, it just gave me the idea to use Quarterback Ian (& in my his favorite team colors!)
TGF FFF: Anything Goes

Check out all the details over at The Greeting Farm! Hope to see you play along!

Special Thanks

Since the school year has already started out here, I thought it would be a good idea to get some thank you cards ready!

My son is too young for school (whew!) but my two nieces that live nearby have some pretty awesome teachers this year, so I thought I'd get started on making some cards for my sister when she needs them throughout the year!

I used this super adorable Bookworm girl from Chi Chi Memories!
Special Thanks

A few weeks ago, Copic Markers had announced a summer contest they were holding throughout the month of August!

They offered up 2 free line drawings for you to download, color, post and tag on instagram #copicsummer, I just had to play along!

One of the available drawings was this awesome girl. I couldn't just color her and *not* put her on a card, so with a few pieces of scrap paper & some enamel dots later...

Thanks for stopping by- hope your week is off to a fabulous start!
