When the Moon Hits Your Eye Like a Big Pizza Pie

...that's Amore. I'm so in love with this month's release aren't you? You can make Amy's sprout Sassy, sweet, and spunky. That's what I LOVE about TGF stamps not only are they versatile but so much fun to color.

WELCOME BACK to our first Farm Fresh Friday of 2010!

We're excited to be back with some super fun challenges for you each Friday and can't wait to see how YOU get Fresh with the Farm!

Today we also are 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 shout out! These gals are going to knock your socks off. I'm soooo happy to have them back at the farm.

Now, onto the challenge! This week's challenge comes from me! My 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!

Want some inspiration? Check out the amazing new "Critter Crew Guest DT":

And check out what the Farmers got glitzy with this week, too!

For my card I used the adorable Miss Stella. I colored with my handy dandy copics and decided to give her hair some streaks of red and glitter. An eyecatcher for sure on the streets of Paris. I also added some stardust stickles to her dress to help the moonlight add even more sparkle when Stella and her beau are wondering out on the town for a late night snack from the boulangerie. The DP is from Pink Paislee, SU, PTI, and Neenah. I used Mercy's Tuesday Sketch Challenge #55 for the layout.

Thanks for visiting. See you back here on Monday and have some Farm Fresh FUN this weekend!
