A ROYAL release is headed your way...

{{{PLEASE SCROLL DOWN for my BELLA-riffic FRIDAY post, thank you so much!}}}

Well,  it is definitely going to be a ROYAL month ahead at The Greeting Farm and today's first preview is a pretty good indication of just HOW royal...Introducing Princess 2!   With TGF's 3rd birthday being only a few months away, we were getting nostalgic and remembered just how popular "Princess Anya" was when she first took her throne as one of the first beloved Anyas.   She has evolved so much since then, but really, who DOESN'T love royalty?  Because of her timeless beauty AND the fact that we love to play dress-up here on the Farm, we are expanding the Princess collection and here she is, Princess 2:


I have to interject for a minute here and tell you JUST how it's paid off to use better products when it comes to cardstock and coloring mediums.   I will tell you that we were in a hurry last night to leave for my DD's 5th Grade Graduation, and one of the kids left a bag of ice on the counter RIGHT on top of my colored image.  I was running behind and hadn't made the card yet, so there it sat.   We got home and there was water EVERYWHERE.   The last thing I'd have had the energy to do is color again after coloring about 8 images the night before.  Can you BELIEVE how well this image held up?  It was SOAKED.  I put it on a dry counter to air dry and NOT. A. SMUDGE.  I colored her on Cryogen White Irridescent 89 lb paper (www.papertemptress.com) and Copic markers.  Amazing, dont' you think???

Anyway, Princess 2 will begin her reign along with other FABULOUS releases on June 1st...and be sure to stay tuned for a HUGE contest announcement on the 1st as well!  I'll be back tomorrow for more fun, but in the mean time, be sure to stop by the TGF blog for more information and find out how YOU can win Princess 2!

Last but not least, we are SO excited to be welcoming our June Guest Designer to TGF,Sharette Smith!  Sharette has been a long time challenge participant and fan of TGF and we are thrilled to have her along this month!   Be sure to visit her as well as:
See you back here tomorrow!

She's a cutie! Princess Anya was my first TGF stamp and second ever stamp so she has a special place in my craft collection, but I think I like the new one even more!
