So, are you all exhausted, reeling from this FULL week of previewing the FIVE new stamp sets being released at The Greeting Farm TOMORROW?????  Well, we thought we’d help out with that and wind down the week with a nice cup of tea….

However, winding down is not all THAT possible because we have a HUGE ANNOUNCEMENT TOMORROW, don’t forget!  For now though, sit back…relax…and pour yourself a cup or two of inspiration from our new “Teariffic” set:   

It is a bittersweet day at the Farm Fresh Challenge Blog today as we bid farewell to our first challenge team.  As a SPECIAL surprise for Rachel, our Team Captain, we are ALL CASEing one of Rachel’s cards today!

I cased THIS card from Rach which is the inspiration for the layout above using this SUPER cute new set which will be released TOMORROW…hooray!

We are totally zen on the TGF BLOG today too (ok, we are bursting with excitement about tomorrow, but we are TRYING to be, anyway!), so be sure to head over for more project inspiration and another chance to WIN “Teariffic” today!  Thanks, as always for stopping by and I’ll see you tomorrow for ALL the excitement!


Furever and ever…

Hello, again, everyone!  Well, we’ve covered babies so far at The Greeting Farm this week…did you think we would leave your pets out?  Not a chance!   How CUTE is this new clear stamp set, titled “FUR-ever”???  Awwww.   Whether you have a fantastic feline or precious pup, this is definitely a must-have for all pet lovers out there, kids and adults alike!
Now, most of you know that I’m a WEE bit obsessed with our dog, Kekipu Sparklepuff.   She is definitely the family obsession at the moment and has been ever since we got her back in January!  I have to laugh- you know the age old story where the kids beg you to get the puppy…promise to love it and feed it and help take it outside, etc. and then about a week later, the novelty wears off?  Well, NOT at the Diedrich abode :)   I must say the kids are still gaga over her and they actually fight over who gets to play with her, take her out, etc.  It’s SO cute!   She is such a loving little dog that when I saw this set, I immediate thought of her, LOL…so here’s my card…reminds me of Madelynn and “keeks”:

My card design is today’s DECONSTRUCTED Sketch challenge issued every week by my good friend and former TGF alum, Jen Shults!  Here is DS21:

Love this one!  I used some of my leftover “Fine and Dandy” DP from My Mind’s Eye for this card.  Please don’t forget to visit the rest of the Deconstructed sketch girls:
Last but not least, you can WIN this set!  Just head over to the TGF Blog and be sure to find out HOW!  Thanks for stopping by!


Joy in the Simple Moments…

Hi, everyone!
***Before I begin, please make sure you head over to the TGF Blog today for day 2 of previews! The Farmers and I are all taking turns for the rest of the week to bring you FIVE new releases this month! Don’t miss it!***
I’m back today with my last post as Guest Designer for Sparkle Creations, wahh! Seriously, HOW fast did this month go, right?
Thank you SO much to Sparks, Steph, and the whole SCRS crew for having me- it’s been so much fun!
This week we are playing along with Inspiration Card Sketches and using the above layout for the challenge today.  I ADORE this beautiful “Fall Charlotte” and paired with Crate Paper’s “Farmhouse” line she is like a dream come true!   Here is my take on the challenge:
I added just a few buttons in the corner and finished them off with some Buttercream Twine (I think it’s my new must-have color!) from The Twinery :)
Don’t forget to stop by the entire SCRS Crew today for even MORE inspiration:

Thank you to ALL these beautiful ladies for having me this month- it’s been a WONDERFUL experience!  xoxo,


Sleighbells ring….are YOU listening?

Hey, everyone!
 It’s hard to believe that in a few short months, we’ll be twirling into Thanksgiving, caroling into Christmas, and putting some HEART into the HOLIDAYS!   While we don’t want to rush any of the magical times ahead (and maybe not rush that cold weather, either!), we know that it takes time and energy to get a head start on those Holiday cards!

Today marks day one of a FIVE-day PREVIEW EVENT at The Greeting Farm, and we are thrilled to bring you our first sneak peek at a new CLEAR stamp set, simply titled “CLEAR CHRISTMAS!”  Before we get to previews, we have a SUPER special October Guest Designer to announce today!  Please welcome the amazingly sweet and talented LORI CRAIG to our TGF family this month!   Lori’s blog, “Make a Difference” is inspiring and from the heart, you’ll definitely want to visit and we are over the moon that she is joining us this month. WELCOME. LORI!

My card today uses this adorable sleigh and a super fun ‘naughty/nice’ checkbox sentiment-I had a BLAST making this card even though I normally balk about making holiday cards TOO early!  Isn’t this set just so sweet and different for TGF, too- which is another cool thing about it!

Well, does that get you in the spirit, even though it’s a little early?  We hope so!  Don’t forget to check out the TGF BLOG today for MORE samples from the entire DT and a chance to WIN this set before it’s released!  What’s more?  We have a HUGE announcement coming on SATURDAY, OCTOBER 1st during our RELEASE day post and you will NOT want to miss this one…promise!  Not only do we have a new release coming, a new Challenge Team coming October 1st…we have ONE more exciting announcement and it might just be our best one YET! 

 Thanks for stopping by today…I will definitely be back with more very soon!


PS- thank you to EVERYONE who participated in the Twinery blog hop post this past weekend- holy cow what a HUGE turnout!   Congrats to AMY COOSE!  You are my winner of the SAMPLER PACK!  please email me your details and I’ll get them over to The Twinery to send out your prize pack! Thank you!!!!
