…TGF Release Day

PLEASE SCROLL DOWN TO SEE MY OCL SKETCH CARD FOR TODAY

Hello everyone!  November is here, and we are bringing you a cozy Release Day Blog Hop from The Greeting Farm!  If you’ve arrived from Melyssa’s Blog then you’re in the right place!  If not, you’ll want to start back at the TGF Blog for the complete Blog Hop list.

Whether you're snuggled up with your honey in your favorite sweater by a fireplace, setting out for your favorite coffee shop to visit with Beanie Anya, or snowboarding with Toby Cub…the theme is COZY and RELAXED this month!  Or perhaps you're preparing something cheeky under the tree for your honey?  It's never too early to start that shopping, right?  ;)  Today, however, we want you to sit back, grab a cuppa tea or hot cocoa and enjoy our little DT hop!  Let's get started, shall we?

Today I used "I {Heart} Sweaters” for my card.  I stamped the Ian image from the set in Black Ink and colored him with Copic Sketch Markers.  The focal panel was cut out using Nesties and a Big Shot.  I paired the image with some patterned papers from SU’s Outlaw Designer Series Paper pack.  I stitched around the edges of the striped patterned paper panels, then distressed the edges of the large Kraft Cardstock panel.  After adding some Hemp, a Corduroy Button, and tons of Dimensionals the card was complete.  Isn’t he just cute and cozy???

This is just one of THREE rubber releases and THREE new digis from the Critter Crew!  Everything is available now in the TGF Store, and we can't wait to see what YOU create with these comfy, cozy cuties!

There's more!  After all, it wouldn't be a blog hop without PRIZES, right?   ONE lucky winner will receive the ENTIRE NOVEMBER RELEASE, including the THREE digis, just for completing each stop along the blog hop and leaving a comment at the Club Anya & Friends blog!  The winner will be announced Tuesday morning, so you have until 11:59pm CST to enter!   GOOD LUCK!

That’s it for me!  Thanks for stopping by, and I’ll see you back here tomorrow with another Tuesday Sketch Challenge!  Until then…YOUR NEXT STOP ON THE HOP IS RANDI’S BLOG!
