TGF Double Take Tuesday!

Howdy, friends of The Greeting Farm! I have a new card to share with you today for our new Double Take Tuesday challenge at the TGF blog! This week, we have a sketch to inspire you, and I know you’ll have fun creating with it!

Here is my card, featuring “Awareness Anya“:

I changed a thing or two from the original sketch when I made my card. Instead of putting the sentiment along the side, I moved it in place of the accent flowers. It was too big to fit on a tab, so I used the twine in the place of the tab. Two brads in the lower right corner are accents to balance the card.

and here’s our sketch, created by Showcase DT member Annie Rose:

For all the guidelines on this challenge, and to link up your entry, just visit the TGF blog! We can’t wait to see what you’ll create! Don’t forget, you also have time to enter our Retro-Fresh “Hearts” challenge, and there are a few days left on our Farm Fresh Friday challenge, too!

 We’re still on the road, making our way from the West Coast to Virginia, and I can’t wait until we’re settled again! Thanks so much for stopping by today!


TGF Farm Fresh Friday: Punch It!

Happy Friday, friends of the farm! It’s time for a new Farm Fresh challenge at The Greeting Farm! This week, we’d like you to break out some of your favorite punches or dies and share your TGF creation with us!

I chose to feature “Awareness Anya” again this week! For this challenge, I’m pairing her with a classic heart die and a sentiment from TGF’s “Lovey Dovey” set. This combo would work for a Valentine’s card, a general love card, or to send some words of encouragement to someone battling heart disease.

TGF Double Take Tuesday!

Hello, crafty friends of the farm! It’s time for a new Double-Take Tuesday challenge at The Greeting Farm! Today, we’re inspiring you with a color challenge!
I was inspired by our color combo of blue and yellow to create this sweet card with the lovely “Awareness Anya“! Her ribbon can be used for so many occasions & causes, so I decided to go with a “Support Our Troops” theme!
My husband, Scott, recently departed the U.S. Army after 16 years of service, so my card this week is a shout out to him! 
He’s still making the transition to civilian life, and it’s been a fun (and interesting) process. I convinced him to switch out his combat boots for other shoes. Even though they are boots of a different style and color, it’s a step in the right direction! I am so proud of him and for his many years of service!

I typed the sentiment in Word, printed it and used my Copics to color the sentiment strip to match the other papers.

For all the details on this challenge, check out the post at the TGF blog…and please take the time to check out what my fellow Showcase Team members have created for this challenge (here’s a hint: they’re all fabulous!): Anita, Annie Rose, Jo, Jodi, Joni, Rachel and Rosemary!
Wait, there’s more! When we have 20 or more players each week, the prize doubles to either two digis, or the winner can trade those two digis for a single rubber stamp of their choice! So, what are you waiting for? Get crafty!
We all can’t wait to see what you’ll create for this challenge! Thanks so very much for stopping by!
