TGF Blog Hop

Happy New Year Everyone!!  It's release day at The Greeting Farm.  I hope you've been enjoyed the last week or so of TGF previews.  The wait is finally over and all SIX new releases are available for purchase today in The Greeting Farm Store!!   

TGF is also introducing the "SHOWCASE" DT members today.  These talented ladies will be bringing you lots of fresh ideas using TGF new releases as well as fun tutorials and specials posts along the way.  

Would you like a chance to WIN ALL SIX of the new release?!?!  It's easy....just be sure hop by and say hello to our new PREMIERE and SHOWCASE team members.  


I saved my favorite Miss Anya Garland project to share with you today.  I just love her darling little string of daisies and her braided hair.  :)  I used DP from My Mind's Eye (Lost & Found - Sunshine) and added a lacy paper doily.  The Leather Tan Vintage Seam Binding from the Ribbon Carousel was tied in a double bow with my Bow Easy and an American Crafts button added to the center.


Copics Used:
Skin: E13, E11, E00, E50, R02, R00
Hair: E50, E41, E31, YR31, E34
Dress/Shoes: E25, E35, E31
Daisies: C1, YR24, Y11


And last but not least is CC Madden...isn't she so COOL?!?!  I LOVED coloring her face and all that hair!!  I've used patterned paper from My Mind's Eye (Love Me).  The largest Spellbinders Scalloped and Classic Heart dies made a fabulous design element and gave me an excellent place to stamp a sentiment from My Favorite Things.  I added a scalloped border along the bottom and then wrapped around some fun Black Wired String which I tied in a little bow!!  I added even more layers and texture by topping the border with 5/8" Silver Satin Pleated Ribbon from the Ribbon Carousel.  


Copics Used:
Skin: E13, E11, E00, E50, R02, R00
Eyes: B97, W5, W3, W1
Hair/Shoes: C9, C7, C5, C3, C1
Clothes: E09, R24, R22, R20
Gloves/Belt: BG23
