Release Party and Retro Fab

It is release night for The Greeting Farm and there are THREE NEW CHEEKIES and a new AMELIA and OLIVER set. Are you excited? To go along with release night there will be chatting with the DT and YOU over at Papercraft Planet starting at 7pm CST until 10 pm CST. We would loooove it if you could join us on the hop and at Papercraft. There is also a challenge. The challenge is to create a RETRO FAB or SHAB FAB themed card.

I decided to go retro with mine. You might be wondering how this is retro, well in my mind I was thinking of days when women would have their hair and make-up done to great their husband's when they came home from work(1950s?). I also remember watching old black and white movies where women were always so put together just to go on a Sunday ride with the family. I used Odette from the insane stamps O'plenty Roll Call set from The Greeting Farm. I colored Odette with copics and paired her with some fun Cosmo Cricket paper. I also used Mojo Monday #141 for the layout.

Please check out the rest DT for more Challenge inspiration. You can find the entire list of participants over at The Greeting Farm Blog. I hope you have had a wonderful holiday weekend and thanks for stopping by.
