The Greeting Farm Release Day Blog Hop!


Today is release day at The Greeting Farm and we are SO excited to be wrapping up an exciting preview week with ALL FIVE releases available TODAY in the TGF Store!

I have the honor of being part of the PREMIERE Guest DT this month!   It's such a treat to have been invited to be part of this crazy talented group of women to help kick off the first release for the Greeting Farm in 2013!  

First up is my card featuring Lovey Bean!

If you missed my sneak peek cards that I made earlier this week, click HERE to see them!  I colored this little cutie with copics and fussy cut her out.  I used a Darice striped embossing folder on the Bazzill Card Shoppe cotton candy CS card base.  I tore some Bazzill Card Shoppe wax lips CS and some PP from the Echo Park Yours Truly 6x6 paper pad. I stamped the sentiment in Momento tuxedo black ink andwent over the "Love so True" part with a black glaze pen.  I cut it out using the SU large oval punch.  Finally, I added some opal glitter glue to her wings.

Next up is is my card featuring Awareness Anya!


I love that you can color her up to show your support for any cause.  This is a card for breast cancer awareness, of course.  If you missed my sneaks earlier this week, click HERE to see how I colored Anya up for colon cancer awareness and Alzheimer's Disease awareness.  Once again, I fussy cut my image after coloring her with copics.  I paired paired some Bazzill Card Shoppe cotton candy and licorice twist CS with some PP from the Carta Bella Paris Girl 6x6 paper pad.  I added PTI black button and some cotton candy Divine Twine.  I printed the sentiment from my computer.
