Hello, everyone and welcome to Farm Fresh Friday!  We have a special post today featuring TWO brand NEW CREEPERS on the TGF Blog!   Be sure to stop by and say hello to Tuesday and Friday!  These WICKED SWEET new additions will be released on Sunday, August 1st during our 2-year anniversary celebration!  Can you BELIEVE TGF is turning two?!?

Before we get to today's challenge, we have a SPECIAL annoucement for you!  Helping ring in TGF's second birthday is Tammy Maxvill, TGF's newest FARMER!  Many of are probably familiar with Tammy's work and her awesome 3D projects from back when she was a Gardener for TGF!  We are happy to welcome her back and know that she's thrilled to be here, too!

We are also excited to announce, should you have missed it this past Wednesday on the CA&F Blog, that Kristy Young has joined Team Anya as our AUGUST GUEST DESIGNER!  Woo hoo!  HOORAY for special announcements and for parties beginning!  Can you sense the magic in the air!?!   

Sadly, we are also saying goodbye to two of our Critter Crew members this week, Sandra and Sparkle!  Thanks for all your efforts and be on the lookout for a DT call coming SOON!

Let's get to the challenge! The wonderful MARY GILES(that's me...teehee) has put together not one, but TWO sketches for you today, combined w/ inspirational elements we'd love to see incorporated in that sketch!  Your mission?  Choose ONE sketch and recreate it using the INSPIRATIONAL elements drawn into the sketch as well!  TWO years-TWO choices, TWO previews today!  You get to choose!

Here are the sketches:


Here is my card
For my card I used the sassy Creeper Tuesday and paired her with some October Afternoon and DCWV. She is colored with copics and I crinkled some designer paper and punched out the flowers. I distressed the edges of the background and brown circles. Then it needed a little stitching and ink distressing on the base.

How to Play:

Upload you card or creation by Wednesday August 4th using TGF stamps to either:

FFF>Mary Sketch 1 OR

FFF>Mary Sketch 2

The Farmers & Team Anya are gearing up for a HUGE 2nd Anniversary week and are joining forces ALL WEEK to bring you even more fabulous samples, ideas, and prizes!  In fact, FOUR DT members have "hidden" Creepers up for grabs on their blogs today, so be sure and VISIT!   We'll announce the winner on the TGF Blog over the weekend! 
Be sure to visit the blogs of our STELLAR Design Teams today and the Critter Crew, too! .ALL of these talented ladies have something amazing for you:

We'll be back tomorrow for ANOTHER stellar preview that you won't want to miss!  The FUN is just beginning this week at the  Farm-we are celebrating BIG. Thank you for stopping by and have a fabulous day!
