I'm a Showcase Farmer!


Drum Roll Please...I have the biggest news to share with you guys!!!  I'm a Greeting Farm Showcase Designer!!!!  I know, I know...I'm sooooo excited!  As soon as I found out I almost fainted!  I can't believe it!  The most coveted DT out there and I get to be a part of it for the next six months!!! Yeah!!!

So what is a Showcase Designer?  Well, here's a little explanation straight from the Greeting Farm Blog and a little info about the Release today:

"It's RELEASE DAY at The Greeting Farm!   We are SO excited too because not only are there a ton of new releases, there are a TON of new faces being introduced  on the TGF BLOG!   We are welcoming 8 new Design Team members to our "SHOWCASE" team, the team that will be carrying you through until our next round of previews in March.   Our new SHOWCASE team will be bringing you lots of fresh ideas using our new releases and some fun tutorials and other special posts along the way.

What's more?  We have SIX new releases available in the TGF Store and a chance to WIN all six of them just for hopping and saying hello to our new PREMIERE and SHOWCASE teams.  We hope you've enjoyed the last week or so of previews, announcements and are SO grateful that you are sharing in our excitement as TGF rings in the NEW YEAR!

Sounds like fun, huh!  Be sure to join in on all the fun and check back here often because I will be posting lots of Greeting Farm creations for your viewing!!!  In fact, here's the first of many:  This is one of the new Miss Anya's from the Miss Anya Garland Set!  Isn't she just adorable???



 As usual, I stamped her with Memento ink and colored her with Copic markers.  Then I stitched around the mat and DP with my sewing machine.  The rosette was actually created by hand with a score tool and the whole thing was embellished with Liquid Pearls.  Oh, and the paper is by Little Yellow Bicycle :)  Believe it or not, this is actually the first square card I've ever created!  I know, I know, I'm a little behind the times, but I always just create rectangle cards since they're cheaper to mail.  However, I'm really liking how this turned out so you can probably expect to see more of these little square treasures! 

HAPPY 2012 everyone!  Now be sure to head over to The Greeting Farm Blog to check out all of the FUN!"
