…I Like You More Than Puppies

Hey Farm Friends!

As you can tell by now, there are some SUPER exciting happenings on the Farm this week!  First of all, as you may have seen on Friday, we are thrilled to welcome Naoual du Mortier as our December Guest for The Greeting Farm, and are also giddy with excitement to welcome Sheri Gilson to Team Anya as our Guest for the Month of December!  These lovely ladies have jumped right into previews and we're thrilled to have them along for the ride!

It's been a while since we've had a sentiment-only set here on the Farm, and after MANY requests by all of you out there in blog-land, we are previewing a BRAND NEW SENTIMENT set today, "Because of You".   This whimsical and fun-fonted set comes complete with that feeling of warm-fuzzies. 

To show you just how adorable these new sentiments are, we've decided to show you some preview projects today using ONLY a sentiment as the focal point.  Be sure to check out the TGF Blog AND the Club Anya & Friends blog as well for some GREAT ideas and heartfelt hugs :)

I used “OA-Buddies” along with the “I like you more than puppies” sentiment from the new set for my card today.  I stamped the Oliver image in Sahara Sand Ink as a subtle addition, and stamped the sentiment in White Craft Ink onto bold Red Cardstock.  I cut out the sentiment panel with a diecut and added some Turquoise Pearls to it for some flair! :) I distressed the edges of the large Kraft Cardstock panel, and added some ink to them with a Sponge Dauber also.  After adding some more Turquoise Pearls, some Turquoise Saddle-Stitched Ribbon, and several Dimensionals the card was complete.

Now let’s see what the other ladies have in store for you today:

Thanks for stopping by today, and oh...there's ONE more little thing.  ONE of the DT members (is it a Farmer?  Guest Designer?  Team Anya member?  hmm....) has a "Because of You" set hidden on their blog today, so be sure to stop by and see their beautiful projects.  ONE lucky winner will be announced tomorrow during our "HOPPIN' into the HOLIDAYS" Blog Hop, beginning at 7pm CST on the TGF Blog.

"Sentimentally" yours,

Love this on Kraft Mercy. What a great idea to get an image on the card but still have the sentiment as the focal point. Great Job!
