Retro Fabulous...

Hey everyone!

I'm back with another retro-fab preview from The Greeting Farm!  Our week is JUST  gearing up...it's gonna be a CRAZY one...all leading up to the AMAZING New Year's BASH we are having on the 1st with an all-day partay chock-full of challenges, fun, prizes...you name it!

Meet GIGI, our third out of FOUR new Wild Sprouts all styled by my friend and fellow Club Anya Teammate Amy Young!


Gigi is fun, fab, and floral and I just adore her!  I used Sketch #10 from The Greeting Farm's 12 Days of Sketches, and it's a bit retro as well!  This was the FIRST Pink Poison sketch I ever played in, back before TGF was even, well, The Greeting Farm!  Can you believe it?  Talk about sweet nostalgia!

Oh, and ha, I should post a disclaimer that there is quite a bit of RIBBON PLEATING going on this week...LOL!  That is because these cards I've been previewing are part of a set that I'll be showing the end result of on our Release Day, 1/1/10...so I got a little crazy with the ribbon this week but hey, sometimes we find a technique and run with it, right?  I LOVE it!

Be sure to check out what's going on over at Club Anya today as well as The Greeting Farm, and check out all the samples by my FABULOUS  and HARD-WORKING teammates!!!

Be back tomorrow with some SUPER sweet surprises...you're gonna FLIP for them!

xoxo
Jess ;)

I love your card and the pleating completes it! I know what you mean about finding something and using it lots, I am LOVING my cream lace and think I have used it on every card for the 12 days of sketches!
