Farm Fresh Friday at The Greeting Farm

I have such exciting news to share with you!!! But, first let me tell you about my project using a Marina Neira TGF rubber stamp. I used little Marlene Monkey to create a Countdown to Christmas Calendar. I colored Marlene in with Copic markers, cut her out, and added dimentionals. She was then places on American Crafts paper. The paper is sewn using various stiches for texture. A golden clip and rhinestones were added to make her sparkle. The calender is cut from chipboard and laced together with rivets and ribbon. I made a clip to hold the cards that allow you to countdown the days. I made a paper tote bag to hold all the pieces and allow me to give this as a gift. The tote bag allows the clip to be visible and add as a decoration to the bag and a sneak peak to what is inside!!!!

Now, for the first time ever at The Greeting Farm..............Drum roll please.......


Yep, you heard it right! For the first time ever, The Greeting Farm is having a Guest Designer Search to work specifically with the WONDERFUL Animal images by Marina Neira!

We are looking for someone to work with these adorable critters for our next release through 12/31/09. Are you interested?

Here's how to throw your name into this WILDLY awesome contest:


*You MUST use a TGF image by Marina Neira. If you do not own any, there are several digital downloads available through the TGF store. Normally it's not like us to use specific images, but because this is a Guest Designer contest, we want to see what you can do using her stamps.

*For this week's CHALLENGE, you must create a "WILDLIFE" themed card using one of Marina's animals. Whatever that means to you is what you should create! We can't wait to see what you come up with!

*Please Upload your creations by WEDNESDAY, November 11, 2009 at 11:59 PM CST into the TGF Galleria>Contests/Challenges>Farm Fresh Fridays>WILD WEEK 1

*This is a TWO WEEK cumulative contest. Although there WILL NOT be a prize this week, there will be at the end of NEXT week's contest. The chosen Guest Designer will receive ALL THREE images by Marina in rubber, plus all digital images by Marina in addition to the December release they will be working with and will be asked to sign a one-month Guest DT contract with TGF.

We are SO WILD about this contest I can't even tell you! We wish all participants the BEST of luck and can't wait to see YOU out there...WHERE THE WILD THINGS ARE!

If you have ANY questions about this contest, please email Jessica. GOOD LUCK to all who enter!
