The Greeting Farm May Preview

Did you enjoy your preview of Fleur Anya over at Club Anya? Today is another preview day and Scrap Book Challenge Day at the The Greeting Farm Blog. My card uses Gramps from the Grammie and Gramps set being released May 1st. Doesn't he just look like a sweet grandpa? I colored him in typical colored grampie clothes. Bad thing for DH...now our 4 yo DD calls his work khakis grandpa pants. I think it is funny. DH...not so much. I colored the images using copics and paired him with some yummy October Afternoon papers. Looking back at my card I should have made the circle a little bigger. The sketch is designed by our very own Scrap Book DT member Jacilynn.

Please join us and visit Cheryl, one of the Original Farmers, in a very heartfelt send off as her term as a farmer comes to an end. She has given so many of us inspiration like no other through her craft. Whenever I think of beautiful bows and flowers, Cheryl is the first name that comes to mind. Please go to her blog and give her some love. Best wishes in all you do Cheryl!

We are extremely thrilled to announce that MERCY KERIN has accepted the position of TGF's latest FARMER! Mercy joins us as of today after previously serving on our Gardener DT and also as a member of our beloved Critter Crew. We'd love you to stop by her blog today and give her a good ol' fashioned TGF Welcome! Hooray!!!!

Come back tomorrow for another for another peek and FFF Challenge. In the mean time check out the rest of the DT.

And the Scrapbook Girls...
