...A Farm Fresh Announcement

Happy Friday, everyone! I'm at home with both of the boys for yet another snow day! Luckily I have several projects and cards on my to-do list, so the snow will not slow me down in the least! As you all know, I participated in my last Farm Fresh Friday challenge as part of The Greeting Farm's Design Team two weeks ago. Fortunately, I was contacted to come back on board as a Guest Designer for the TGF "Critter Crew" stamp line, so I will still be bringing you creations for Farm Fresh Fridays! This line was created specifically for the images designed by the uber-talented Marina Neira...you could say that this is her "brand name". She not only has some wonderful rubber stamp images, but she also has several digital images as well...there is something is this line-up for everyone! So now let me introduce the "Jan/Feb 2010 Critter Crew Guest Designers":
Now for this week's challenge issued by one of the TGF Farmers, Mary Giles...use Glitter & Glue! I used Marina's "Maggie" image along with some BasicGrey Bittersweet patterned papers. For the challenge, I added Crystal Stickles to the paisley panel, then added three brads and a decorative edge to the same panel. I used my Janome Sewing Machine to sew around all four of the edges of the large background panel before coloring Maggie with an Aquapainter and Classic Ink Pads. A piece of 1" Rose Grosgrain Ribbon was added to complete the card.

Let's check out what the other Critter Crew members and TGF DT have come up with for this challenge:
That's it for me today! Thanks for stopping by, but now it's your turn to play along with the Farm Fresh Friday Challenge at The Greeting Farm Blog (be sure to check out the rules while you're there). We can't wait to see what you come up with! Until later...
