TGF Release Day!

Happy Tuesday everyone! It’s finally here…..RELEASE DAY for two of our Super Secret Stamp Club stamps: Willow and Ezra as well as a totally owl-mazing clear set, Owl Yours! You've seen the previews and teases all week long and I'm sure you can't wait to get your hands on these. in honor of this awesome release, I created a treat box using the Owl Yours set:

Owl Yours Clear Set

Isn't this little guy just handsome? I'm in the process of making tags for Valentine's day goody bags using this handsome fella and his cutie pie counter part. Originally the plan was to make lots of mini pizza boxes and use those for Valentine's until I realized I'd have to make 40! As fun as that would be to say that I completed such a large project, life tends to happen (especially with the hubby not here for help) and things get put off. Nope, instead I purchased some cellophane treat bags in red and white and some red and white bakers twine to take some of the stress off of myself. They're going to be gorgeous, so keep an eye out for that project coming soon!

 All of these are now available in The Greeting Farm Store but hurry, I just know they'll go fast cause after all, who doesn't love a new stamp or 2...or 3 I know I do!  Like winning free stuff? Well guess what? here’s your chance!! We are having a OWL YOURS BLOG HOP! Be sure to leave a comment on each designer’s blog and then head back  to the TGF Blog to let us know you completed the hop. You have until Friday, December 18th at 12pm CST to leave your comments below. We will announce our random winner next week!

December Farm Fresh Challenge

Happy 1st of December! You know what that means right? Yes, that's 24 days till Christmas! I know I should be excited but this post is bittersweet. This is the last Farm Fresh Challenge that I'll have the pleasure of being on The Greeting Farm's design team and inspiring you guys to join in and play along :( Although I'm sad that my term is coming to an end, I know that TGF likes to give other farm friends a chance to shine and be part of a great team. Without TGF changing things up, I never would have had the opportunity so I'm thankful from the bottom of my crafty little heart :D

For December's Farm Fresh Challenge the Theme is Christmastime! So for my card today I decided a sweet treat would be a perfect way to start my countdown to Christmas so I paired my totally cute new Christmas papers with the adorable clear winter sets Sing Hello and Happy Winter, released this year from The Greeting Farm.

Sing Hello, Happy Winter

I stamped one of these cuties once on my paper and then again on a sticky note so that I could use it to mask of my original stamped image. I inked up another two of those adorable winter cuties and stamped them on either side with the mask in place so that the center image would appear to be standing in front. I colored each with my copic markers and fussy cut the group image out. I mounted them onto my card front using foam dots. The sentiment also came from the Happy Winter set. To finish the look I used my martha stewart alpine snowflake punch on a scrap of kraft cardstock and used a little diamond stickles and a pearl in the center.

With Christmas fast approaching, this challenge was so much fun I can't wait to share my next holly jolly project, its gonna be great so keep an eye on The Greeting Farm's page this month, all of us DT ladies have some great inspiration to get you in the holiday spirit! See you guys soon!
