Exciting News!

Oh my gosh! I am so excited to announce that I have been asked to be the January Guest Designer for The Greeting Farm!! I know right?! If you aren't familiar with their stamps, go check them out, you will not be disappointed. I have a big ol' grin just writing up this blog post. Above is a card that I created using the New Miss Anya Garland Set and the Flutter Heart Clear Stamp Set. These girls are soo adorable.

I'm still in shock. So does that make me "Farmer Jo"? Hehehe. (Rina, can you believe it?)
I am addicted to decorating glassine bags. Here I used one of the Miss Anya images that came in the set. Adorable! Her dress and her stockings were all paper pieced. Great tip if your Copic marker arsenal is low, just paper piece the image and no worries. The rest of the image is colored with my Copics. The beautiful beige crochet flower was given to me by my scrap gal Bona, her mom crocheted it. For embellishments I added some flowers and lace trims.

So that is my exciting news I wanted to share with everyone. Thanks to all my supporters! (Okay I feel like I won a Miss America pageant or something LOL). Stay tuned for more projects! And visit The Greeting Farm Blog for more fabulous projects. Also make sure to go to the TGF Facebook Page for more inspiration, updates and news. Okay bye for now!
