Welcome Flyin' with the Farm Blog Hoppers!


Update: Now that the hop is over I just had to enter my Edward pictured below into the Brunette Hair Copic Challenge #7. We all know that Edward is the dreamiest brunette around.

WELCOME to our FIRST EVER "Flyin' with the Farm" BLOG HOP!

We are super excited to be debuting THREE NEW RELEASES and one DIGITAL IMAGE. There are plenty of opportunities to WIN them, too! If you are just starting out on my blog, be sure to head on over to The Greeting Farm's blog to begin this fun Blog Hop! If you are already in on all the fun, then thanks for coming over from Jen Muraoka's blog!


My first card that I have to show you is from the Fly Away and the Butterfly Wishes sets. Did I tell you how much I LOVE these sets!? They are just absolutely gorgeous. There isn't much coloring on this card because the papers are so vibrant and I really wanted the Hot Air balloon to stand out instead of blend in.

Copics: RV91, RV95, E27, E25, C1
Inks: Momento Tuxedo Black, Distress Dusty Concord
Paper: SU Pink Pirouette, Neenah White, Basic Grey Eva DP
Stamps: TGF Fly Away, TGF Butterfly Wishes

My second card to show you is Edward (Drool, sigh, be still my heart!) from the Wild Sprouts line. Isn't he the cutest! I squealed with so much delight when he came in the mail. My very own Edward to adore. Notice that fun circle designer paper. It is one of the papers included in the Greeting Farm's newest paper collection Dirty Rodeo. The papers are soooo yummy and so is that Edward.

Skin:R000, R00, E50, E51 (didn't know it took so many colors to get a pale face did you?)
Hair: E25, E27, E39
Clothes: C1, C3, C5, 110, 0, B91, B95, E31, E33
Inks: Distress Walnut, Antique Linen, Tea Dye, Momento Tuxedo Black
Paper: TGF Dirty Rodeo, PTI Chocolate, SU Night of Navy, Neenah White
Stamps: TGF Wild Sprouts Edward, Stampendous Wavy Music, Hampton Art Decorative Frames, Artful Inkables Fictionally Inspired

We have a ton of fun ways that you can WIN these stamps, including a WORD SCRAMBLE for you! Once you've completed today's hop, you will have all the letters you need to spell descramble and spell out a VERY important word ;) Once you know the answer, please email Jessica at yeahshestamps@gmail.com to let her know you've completed the blog hop and ONE lucky winner will be randomly selected to win Butterfly Wishes, her brand new stamp set with The Greeting Farm!


My clue for you today is the letter: T
I will also be drawing a name for the gorgeous Butterfly Wishes sentiment set.

In addition, I am thrilled to be one of FOUR NEW SUMMER GARDENERS to The Greeting Farm family! The Gardeners have some "candy" for you too, so be sure to make it all the way to the end of today's event! I hope you enjoy today's release party and have a splendid day "Flyin' with the Farm!" Releases are on sale now at The Greeting Farm's website. In addition, be sure to stop by the CLUB ANYA blog today as they have a surprise for you too! There's a new ALL-STAR in town and you WON'T want to miss him! For now, your next stop is Tori Wild's blog. See you there and thanks for being a part of this fun event!
