Anyone for the Beach!

Who dosen't love going to the beach, the warm days, the fun in the sun and of course the sand between your toes! Being that over here in Australia we are just about at the end of our Summer, we have spent quite a bit of time down at the beach. Another girl who loves the beach is our NEW March Release....

Introducing you to ........... CHEEKY BEACH! Our newest Cheeky on the Farm, now this girl LOVES the Beach!

This week the Farmers have joined in with the Club Anya Girls for Sketch Saturday, so I have used this Gorgeous Sketch done by the Lovely Jen.

Now I have altered this sketch just a little, it wasn't my intention it was just how it all turned out, but you can still see the sketch in there! 

I have gone with Summery colors to make this feel bright and cheery, which is definitely what Summer does to you! Cheeky definitely looks like a girl who would have lots of fun down at the beach...hehe!

Now don't forget about our very extra Special ONE DAY ONLY CREEPIN' presale-NO EXCEPTIONS to this-it will ONLY be available for ONE DAY-March 1st, 2011 for a special price of $40.  After that, it's April 1st and $48 and again, So if you have seen the pictures floating about March first is your first chance to get your hands on our very Special Creeper Set, which won't be released until April 1st.

Thursday Throwback with TGF!

Hey there, Farmer Emma here to welcome you to Thursday throwback with TGF. The idea for Thursday Throwback is give a little bit of love to some of our older TGF stamps. You know those ones that you've had for quite a while, but they haven't seen any ink for a little while! Well we want you to get them out and show them some love...hehe!

I Love this Cowboy Ian, he is such a little Man in his cowboy outfit, the perfect stamp for a boys card, which I have to say is something I don't make enough of! So I thought it was time to give him a little love and to also add a boys card to my pile of seriously girly cards....hehe!

I was thinking how every little boy dreams about being a cowboy at some stage, so I thought this paper and sentiment was perfect to use with this card!

I hope this inspires you to pull out your less loved TGF Stamps and show them a little love. Otherwise you can find Cowboy Ian and all of his friends over at the TGF Store, here!
