Farm Fresh Friday Sketch and a Preview

Hey everyone!

SWEET SEPTEMBER is ALMOST here! You know what that means?

It's time for another Farm Fresh Friday challenge but we have a SPECIAL treat for you today...and it's just as SWEET as it is TOXIC??? Yep, you guessed it...we are previewing a BRAND NEW set "Sweet and Toxic" to release this coming Wednesday, September 1st at The Greeting Farm!

EXCITED? Well, perhaps you'll be even MORE excited to know that our new CREEPER CREW sets are going to be released as 4x6 stamp sets WITH sentiments! How SWEET is that? You're probably noticing that all of this is just a LITTLE more sweet than toxic, huh?

Well let's show off these sassy new additions with some cards from the Farmers using Mercy's sketch as your challenge this week on the TGF Blog:


And here's my card:
I colored the image with copics and dusted the eyes and cheeks with some chalks. I think the papers are something like Market Street 29. I had to some more of those fun circle flowers. The best part of them is you can make them the size you need and use your left over scraps to make them coordinate. Pretty cool. I mostly stuck with shades of grey and purple. Since there was a splash of green in the stripe paper I colored the Creeper's eyes a similar shade.
Be sure to stop by the TGF Blog today to see all of the creations the FARMERS have for you and be sure to stop by the CA&F Blog tomorrow for MORE previews and an announcement!

One more announcement here on the TGF Farmer Front...today we sadly say a (bitter)SWEET goodbye to two of our dear, dear Farmers, Kadie and Cindy :( WAAAAAAHHHHH!!!! Please I need tissues I'm a mess. It's hard to believe these two beautiful souls have been Farmer's for a year already, isn't it? Parting is SWEET sorrow, indeed, and I'm not just saying that :( On behalf of Marie, Jess, and ALL of TGF, we say a SUPER DUPER Thank you to these two wonderful ladies and just KNOW that you'll never be FAR from the Farm! Best of luck and THANK YOU. for EVERYTHING.

As for our little challenge today?

Upload your card/creation using Mercy's sketch to the TGF Galleria>Contests/Challenges>FFF>Mercy Sketch 8-27
