Farm Fresh Friday gets Glittery...

Hey there!   First and foremost,  THANK YOU for all your sweet comments on my post yesterday.  I was really surprised how many people were touched by it but I am really happy you were.  I got some really interesting/funny emails yesterday too!  Actually a few people asked my DH's nationality.

He is actually an interesting breed, LOL...1/2 German and 1/2 Chinese.   He works for the airlines and yes, as a few of you have commented he is "Mr. Facebook", LOL...always commenting random and funny stuff and has actually friended QUITE a few of my PSF's which I think is hilarious!   Anyway, enough about HIM!  HA!  Just kidding...and thanks for the comments on my bracelet too...I will DEFINITELY update you on the charms I receive.  A friend of mine emailed me and said that I should do that and I think I'll take her up on the suggestion :)  So glad you guys are interested!  I LOVE that you are riding this ride called life with me!

So..... I'm excited to bring you today's version of Farm Fresh Friday with The Greeting Farm...our FIRST of 2010!


Today at TGF we are also excited to announce the new "Brand Name" for Marina Neira's animal line!   We are SO pumped about the TGF "Critter Crew" brand of stamps that we are actually celebrating by putting a little blog badge out there for all of you to proudly display on your blogs, too!  

Are you NEW to Marina's animal stamps?   Not only are the cuddly cute, they are AMAZINGLY fun to color come in digital designs and rubber!  There's something for everyone in the TGF Critter Crew line of stamps!

And now....with an even BIGGER announcement before we get to this week's FFF Challenge.   Please join me in welcoming our Jan/Feb 2010 CRITTER CREW GUEST DESIGNERS!   We've put a team of three AMAZING gardener-alum together for a limited time to celebrate the official name and and re-launch of the CRITTER CREW....and when you SEE how these gals can color, you won't be surprised to welcome back:


Hooray!  These talented ladies will be bringing you tons of critter cuteness through the end of February each week here for FFF, so give them a a shout out!


Now, onto the challenge!  This week's challenge comes from our beloved new Farmer Mary Giles!    Mary challenges us this week to Use Glitter....and Glue! in your project.  Could be loose glitter (ack!), Stickles, whatevah ;)  Just make it sticky and sparkly, LOL....and you're there!


For my project, I made a card box using Taylored Expressions perfect packaging card box.   This box is actually the packaging I created for Marie, our AMAZING TGF owner's Christmas present this year and I've been itching to show it off!  Had to make sure she got it first, LOL! :)  

I colored up a Flutter Anya and glittered up her hair using Stickles in Mermaid color.   LOVE the shimmer this awesome glitter glue gives off, don't you?

Be sure to leave some love for the rest of the AMAZING TGF DT girls today:

See you soon and head on over to the TGF BLOG for more details on how to enter this week's FFF Challenge!
