NEW in NOVEMBER at The GREETING FARM!


Hey, everyone!  We are pumped for the NEW November Releases available RIGHT NOW at The Greeting Farm and rest assured it is more TREAT than trick today!

You've seen the previews, and we are so glad that you're all sharing in the excitement as we move into November with FIVE new "must haves" in your TGF collection!   From the LARGER than life "Anya Styles", a bean who twinkles more than stars, two VERY fabulous (or, is it vamptabulous?  ;) Creepers in our crew and a festive Holiday Anya 2, there's something for EVERYONE...and they're all in the TGF STORE waiting for you!

You know it wouldn't be a party if we didn't have a BLOG HOP with a BIG prize, right?  This blog hop is special to us, too because it marks our last hop as a current Premiere team.  
So here are my final projects as a Premiere Farmer (que puppy dog eyes and pet lip).

You guys already know who this handsome fella is, right? James is a heartbreaker. If I was his girl, I'd be claiming that jacket right away. I wonder how long git takes him to do that hair in the morning? It sure is impressive. I've coloured him with the usual ProMarkers and FlexMarkers - I've given him a bit of a roset cheeked look this time round - to match papers frm an older Cosmo Cricket called Boyfriend.

I've added the slightest green glow around James to match his eyes, it doesn't show up much on the photo but it really makes him pop off the long panel I've cut around him. To finish the card off I've added some polka dot buttons from The Ribbon Girl and a yummy polka dot brad from Stampin' Up! Oh, and that sentiment, guess where it's from?! Of course.. My Guy Ian! ;) stamped in Real Red ink. Hope you likey.


I'll add my Anya Styles card when I get home today - or try to. Blogger is too busy being an idiot to let me add anymore to the post! :(

.. and here she is. In all of her pink and purple glory.


Love this girl. Perhaps a little too much. She's so stylish and is a dream to colour. I've paired her up with some papers from Echo Park Springtime collection. The sentiment is from PTI and layered on top of a mini doily from MFT.

Before I go, I wanna take a minute to thank each and everyone one of you for making this such a fantastic experience. From the excitement of receiving new, surprise, rubber in the post, to colouring up the new images and sharing them with the crafting world, and our CCN which I trooped through until the early hours of the morning - it has all been a blast!! *grins*

Ok... on with the NEW! Here's the list you've been waiting for...will YOU be the lucky one who walks away with ALL FIVE RELEASES?  You have until 11:30pmCST tonight to enter and FIND OUT tomorrow!

back to the TGF BLOG to let us know you hopped!

Have a blast and HAPPY NOVEMBER! xo
