Preview of Fancy Anya by TGF :)

Hello Bloggers!!! There comes a time in almost every little girl's life, where a poofy, sparkly, glittery dress complete with freshly curled hair is required. Maybe it's for a party. Maybe just for fun. But my how FANCY and FUN dress up time can be!

Isn't "Fancy Anya" super cute??? You don't have to answer that. I know she is! :D

Introducing "Little Dreamer" by TGF

Do you remember when you were little and you would wish upon the stars? You would dream, imagine and hope. My wish is that you honor the little girl inside of you. Break your diet and eat ice cream :) Take a break from your paperwork to jump on a trampoline. Slow down. Sit on a bench and watch the stars put on a show.

I must admit I am so tickled with Little Dreamer by The Greeting Farm because it is BEYOND cute. This set is inspiring and reminds me of the little kids we once were and still are. The sentiment and images remind me of the support I was lucky enough to receive as a child. The encouragement to follow my bliss, believe in myself and keep trucking along. Being a "Sign Artist" in the day and a stage actress by night, I appreciate any positive feedback and encouragement I can get :)

Know Little Dreamers that Great Things Will Happen! Hard work and a positive attitude go a long way :)

"I'm a great believer in luck, and I find that the harder I work, the more of it I have. " ~Thomas Jefferson

Little Dreamer by The Greeting Farm/colored in copics/diamond stickles/3 felt button hearts/peach embroidery thread/black marker for hand drawn flowers/black cardstock card/ornate #5 frame by sizzix/walnut stain distress ink for edges/a white marker for the hair which I then colored over with brown copics

*There will be a hidden prize on one of the DT member's blog. Winner will be announced tomorrow during another preview.

Thank You Lovely Little Dreamers for Blogging by!

Have a fabulous day and don't forget to DREAM BIG!

"Naughty or Nice" Preview by The Greeting Farm!!!

Hello EVERYONE! Hope you all had a very MERRY Christmas and that it was full of magic and memories!

I am very excited to let you know that I am the January Guest Designer for Splendid Stamping with The Greeting Farm!!! Yay! I am so grateful to share and create with you all!

We are beginning January previews today with some HUGE news and fun announcements...are you all ready? First and foremost, we have some HELLO's and Goodbyes.
The Greeting Farm would like to thank Melyssa and Randi as their terms with TGF are ending and we wish them both well! From now on, TGF Farmers terms will be 6 months long instead of one year and although it probably won't make it any EASIER to say goodbye to our talented designers, we are excited about this!

Also saying goodbye this week are the FABULOUS members of our Critter Crew.Not because their terms are up, but because the Critter Crew itself will no longer be considered a 'team' of TGF. While we will surely have a cute critter by Marina from time to time, we will no longer be releasing these on a regular basis and it is with an ENORMOUS amount of gratitude that we say goodbye to such a WONDERFUL team of designers! Thank you all so much!
Well, now that we've gotten the sad part out of the way, we have THREE NEW FARMERS to welcome to TGF and a new Guest Designer that we are THRILLED about! Please welcome:
THREE NEW FARMERS and please welcome

BUTTERCUP as our January Guest Designer! (<-- that's ME!
!! :)

TONS of excitement going on around the FARM! And as if that werent enough?
Check out our first preview, a Cheeky Cherry "NAUGHTY or NICE" set!

I just LOVE the Cheeky collection! And this Naughty and Nice set is super sassy! She is colored in Copics, Distress Inks and
diamond Stickles per usual! :)

Be sure to head on over and WELCOME our new designers and to visit ALL The TGF DT, including Team Anya
as they have previews for you today too! We'll see you back tomorrow on the TGF Blog with a chance to WIN a new Oliver and Amelia set!

Thank You so much
for stopping by! I look forward to sharing more Greeting Farm cards with you for the month of January! :)
Peace & Joy!

My First Paper Clay Snowman! :D

Mr. Snowman,

Bring me a DREAM! Make him the CUTEST....oops...wrong song! Either way, HERE HE IS! A cute and happy little man made of sparkly snow!

I hope his cute, little, crooked smirk puts a cute, little, crooked smirk on your face as well!

You can see how he is VERY similar to Blue Skellie in the post below! :)



Buttercup :) XOXO

Blue Skellie! Halloween in December! :)

Happy Holidays Everybody! I hope you are finding time to slow down, rest and enjoy this wonderful season! I love winter! Living in a warm climate makes loving winter very easy! :) Now, before I return to celebrating the holidays, I need to dip back into Halloween and share my Blue Skellie I recently finished! (Just in time for a surprise Xmas gift!)

Here he is with Girl Skellie! I think they make a very cute couple! And soon they will be traveling together to their new home in I-can't-say-where;it's-a-gift-state! :)
Enjoy your Holidays! Whether you are a mad shopper, a mad crafter, a mad traveler, a mad chef, may you thoroughly get lost and found in your chosen passion! Thank You for stopping by my little blog here.

Now onto SUPPLIES for those curious:
*Paper Clay, wooden sticks, foam balls, acrylic paints, paper mache box

Merry Christmas / Happy Celebrations of Happy Kinds! :)
