TGF's "Pay it Forward" Thanksgiving Challenge!

Hello!!!  Marie and Jess at The Greeting Farm have come up with a wonderful way to show their gratitude and want to "Pay it Forward" this Thanksgiving.  The DT has joined along by creating projects with a Thankful/gratitude theme.

I used the super sweet Snuggle stamp for my card.  The sentiment is from Lawn Fawn.

A close up.  I love these image!

Here are the details!

HOW to enter:

Create a card or project using TGF Stamps and post it to InLinkz on TGF's blog.

PAY IT FORWARD:

Once you enter your card, please send Jessica a private email at yeahshesnaps at icloud. com and NOMINATE a person you know that might be struggling or going through something hard this year. This can be a person who's been a little down on their luck, struggling financially, going through something tough, lost job, etc. TGF will NOT share the recipient you choose- this will be done in private.

However, based on the responses, one recipient will be drawn and the person who nominates them will also win a prize. The player will be announced, but their nomination won't, if that makes sense

PRIZE:

The lucky winner whose nomination is chosen will receive a 4x6 set of choice from TGF as a thank you for participating in the challenge.

The "Paying it Forward" recipient will win:

2 4x6 stamp sets from TGF
1 single stamp from TGF (these have already been put aside)
Ink
Acrylic Block
Asstd. cardstock and 6x6 papers
Asstd. Embellishments
...and a few more surprises

PLEASE spread the word on Facebook, Twitter, by email, etc. when you can. We want to make this BIG and really want to spread an attitude of gratitude around everyone this holiday season.

DEADLINE:

You have until Wed. Nov. 21, at 10pm CST to enter your card and email Jessica. The winner will be announced sometime on Thanksgiving Day as we enjoy the day with family looking back on all we have to be grateful for. How awesome it will feel knowing that someone will be kicking off their holidays with a little pick me up from TGF?!

Sound exciting?  Thanks for reading!

Knuffle Bunny

Hi!  The Greeting Farm had their Customer Challenge & Chit Chat Night "A Night at the Bookstore" and introduced a few challenges.  I have to say chatting was too fast for me and I couldn't really keep up.  It was still early here, and I had to pick up the kids from school and activities and make dinner and eat and so I guess the timing didn't really work out with our schedule. You can check out the challenge details on the SCS forum HERE.  I made this card for Favorite Child's Book category.  It is based on the Mo Willems book Knuffle Bunny.  It's one of my kids' favorites and it's such a cute story.  We actually love reading Mo Willems' books especially his Elephant and Piggie series.  Those books are hilarious!  This challenge also made me realize that I haven't read many books recently except kids' books.  I used to love reading but just haven't given it much time lately.  Anyway, here is my card.

If you've read the story, yo…

August 2012

Hi!  We had a short black out this morning and I didn't know what to do without my computer and internet, and I couldn't go blog surfing.  I was sad but I did cut everything out for my kids' Halloween goody bags.  Good thing my Big Shot isn't electric. 

Anyway, I made another page to my 2012 calendar/scrapbook using MFT's sketch #39 and Pure Innocence Year of Flowers series Poppy.

Here's my page.  Somehow I'm not loving this one too much.  I love the image but somehow the colors remind me of fall too much and not too summery.  And I think the proportions are a bit off.  But I decided to just stick with it.  It's still cute.

Here's a picture of both pages.

I'm gonna have to wait til I order the next couple months to continue.  But I'm happy I've made it this far!

The kiddies are home for fall break.  It's nice but messy and noisy.  It may be a long week.

Thanks for reading!

no BUTTS about it

Hello!  Today I have a series of cards to share which I think are super cute and funny too.  I love Birdie Brown's stamp sets available at MFT and the cards today uses the behind images of the cat, dog & pig found in Cool Cat, Lucky Dog and Hog Heaven. 

I had a couple of ideas for the design of this card but I felt the sentiment called for multiple images of the animal's behind.  I just couldn't let there be one image and the sentiment have plural Butts.  I know that is weird of me but things like that drive me a little crazy.  I won't get into how people misuse plural and possessive s though.  That really drives me crazy.  Anyway, so then I thought this would be a cute way to stamp multiple images over the card.  I created the sentiment on the front using an alphabet set from Lawn Fawn.

This is the sentiment on the inside which comes in the Cool Cat stamp set.

Here is the dog version.  These cards took a lot of time to color!
