It's April in Wonderland at The Greeting Farm!


Hi, everyone!  Today is the day, and this is NO April Fool's trick!   We are excited to bring you the APRIL release, beginning with our LIMITED EDITION "Wonderland Beans" as well as our Delicate Words die which will be available ongoing in the TGF Store.
We've had a few questions about this Limited Edition release.  Rest assured we will re-stock as we need to during the month of April, but after that, they will be gone, so get them while the portal to Wonderland remains open!  ;)

We also have some big news as far as releases go.  As you may have read, TGF is thrilled to announce that starting NOW we are going back to MONTHLY releases...so there will be a lot of additional excitement here on the Farm! 

Here's my card celebrating this awesome release!!!

Had to use this Hatter card, it's just so cute and girly!!
And what about those cute dies!!??  Luv them!



Well, we know the moment you've been waiting for is just around the corner now that RELEASE DAY is upon us!  Be sure to hop with us today, because one AMAZINGLY lucky winner will receive the ENTIRE Wonderland Bean collection PLUS the new Delicate Words die!   In addition, a SECOND winner will be drawn to win a 2nd Delicate Words die, so be sure to hop and you all have until 11:30pm CST tonight to do so!   If you're just starting out on my blog, be sure to go back to the beginning and go from there:

Back to TGF BLOG to comment and let us know you've completed the hop!  (and how much you loved it, of course, should you feel inclined ;)

Thanks so much for visiting...and we hope you enjoy APRIL in Wonderland!

Happy Easter!!

I just wanted to say Happy Easter to all of my blog-y friends who may be celebrating the holiday today!  I definitely have a deeper understanding of the holiday as an adult, but it is also fun to indulge with our kids and have a little bunny fun today too!  I hope you all have a wonderful day full of family and friends!

Here's a little Easter fun-

This little rascal is from the Gwen In Bloom set from Some Odd Girl.
The flowers and grass are also part of the stamp set.
The sentiment "Bloom & Grow" is also part
of the stamp set, but I computer generated the 
"Hoppy Easter".


Have a wonderful day!

Welcome Farm Fresh Friday!!

Yay, it's Friday!!  Time for another fun Farm Fresh Challenge over at The Greeting Farm!  Today's challenge is a fun one!  We want you to make an EASEL card!!  Many of you have made/seen these types of cards, but for you that haven't here's a little tutorial for you!


You can find tutorials all over the internet for these.  This one was a great pic provided my awesome team-mate Annie!

Here's mine-

I love the little bit of attitude that Monday Morning has!



I didn't keep very good track, but I believe most of the paper on here is from the Dear Lizzie Lucky Charm pad.  The sentiment is from the retired Roll Call kit.  

Now it's your turn to head on over to The Greeting Farm's blog to check out all of the details, and link up your creation!!

DTT At The Greeting Farm!

Hello everyone!!  Glad to see you here for another fun Double Take Tuesday at The Greeting Farm!  Today's challenge is FLOWERS!  I am terrible with flowers, I feel like they look funny where ever I put them!  LOL!  But none the less, I have come up with a bit of a flower-y card!

I figured that Blush Beatrice was perfect for some
floral inspiration!

I am pretty happy with the colors I used on her hair,
very eye-catching!

I decided to have some fun with my sewing machine on this one!  I also distressed the edges of the paper a little too, to give it a slightly rustic look.  The flower is from My Favorite Things, and the sentiment is Paper Smooches.  I believe most of the paper came from the Dear Lizzie Lucky Charm pad.  

Now head on over to The Greeting Farm's blog to get all of the details, and link up your creation!!

Retro-Fresh Challenge at The Greeting Farm!!

Today is the start of a new Retro-Fresh Challenge over at The Greeting Farm!  Retro-Fresh you say?  Yep, bust out those stamps that are older than 6 months!

That's not the only challenge!  This month we are focusing on ....Boys!!  That's right, I want to see nothing but manly cards!  (I neglect my poor little guys something fierce.)

Here's mine-

I used CC Sunday!

He still has the Biebs old hair cut!

On the TGF blog, you will find all of the rules and a list to use showing you which stamps qualify.  

I used some of my new dies and stamps from My Favorite Things (camera), Paper Smooches (notebook paper and sentiment), and Taylored Expressions (notebook paper stamp).  The stars are Nesties, and the banner is from a mini EK banner punch.

I can't wait to see what you come up with!!

Farm Fresh Friday!

Who's ready for a new Farm Fresh Friday from The Greeting Farm???  Me, me, me!!  This week's challenge is...Lucky you!  Make a St. Patrick's Day project!

It's about time I payed a little attention to my greens....

I thought Monday Morning would look fun rocking the green today.
(I dare you to pinch her, she doesn't look like she's in the mood.)  lol!

I must have that sweater!

This is one of those cards that definitely looks better in person.  There is a lot of depth and layers on this bad-boy that you can't see from the pics.  I think I have had that sheet of shamrock paper for at least two years, who knows where it came from.  

Your turn to swing by The Greeting Farm's blog to check out all of the details and link up your creation!

Last, but not least...

One more peek at a cute new digi over at Some Odd Girl!  I have to say, this girl is pretty sassy!  This is Scooter Mae!!

I totally want this scooter!  Maybe my friend Annette
will give me a ride on hers!!  lol!

Told ya she was sassy!
I don't think I have ever used an all white card like this, I was totally
stepping out of the box on this one!  lol!
These cool stickers are from the Echo Park Mini Set-Oh Snap!

What are you waiting for!!  Race on over to Some Odd Girl and grab this digi while she's hot!
And don't forget to see all of the fantastic inspiration from the design team
on the SOG blog!!
