Do you remember when you were a little girl and you used to dress up in your favourite fairy dress or skirt or see those gorgeous ballerinas and want to be like them, they were so graceful and fancy. Well Fancy Anya is that little girl!

She reminds me of my girls who just love to dress up and twirl all around the house in their pretty ballerina skirts

I have given my whole card a spray of Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Mist, which you can sort of see here on Miss Fancy Anya, isn't she just Adorable!

Now go and see what the rest of the farmers have done with this adorable Fancy Anya, I guarantee you are going to see absolutely gorgeous creations!

Are you Naughty or Nice.....?

Hello EVERYONE!  Hope you all had a very MERRY Christmas and that it was full of magic and memories!

We are beginning January previews today with some HUGE news and fun announcements...are you all ready?  First and foremost, we have some HELLO's and Goodbyes.   The Greeting Farm would like to thank Melyssa and Randi as their terms with TGF are ending and we wish them both well!  From now on, TGF Farmers terms will be 6 months long instead of one year and although it probably won't make it any EASIER to say goodbye to our talented designers, we are excited about this!

Also saying goodbye this week are the FABULOUS members of our Critter Crew. Not because their terms are up, but because the Critter Crew itself will no longer be considered a 'team' of TGF. While we will surely have a cute critter by Marina from time to time, we will no longer be releasing these on a regular basis and it is with an ENORMOUS amount of gratitude that we say goodbye to such a WONDERFUL team of designers!  Thank you all so much!

Well, now that we've gotten the sad part out of the way, we have THREE NEW FARMERS to welcome to TGF and a new Guest Designer that we are THRILLED about!   Please welcome:
EMMA EADS - Me!!!!!
THREE NEW FARMERS and please welcome 

BUTTERCUP as our January Guest Designer!

TONS of excitement going on around the FARM!  And as if that werent enough?   Check out our first preview, a Cheeky Cherry "NAUGHTY or NICE" set!

So it is wothout further ado that I bring you my very first TGF Card as a Farmer....oh that sounds good..hehe!

Introducing you to Naughty & Nice............Isn't she just Adorable!

I made this card for my best friend as a Thank-you card as she helped me out through a pretty rough time a little while ago and as soon as I saw this gorgeous Angel I knew that she would be perfect to use, as my best friend certainly was my Angel!

Be sure to head on over and WELCOME our new designers and to visit ALL The TGF DT, including Team Anya as they have previews for you today too!  We'll see you back tomorrow on the TGF Blog with a chance to WIN a new Oliver and Amelia set!

LADY dear, if Fairies may
For a moment lay aside
Cunning tricks and elfish play,
'Tis at happy Christmas-tide.

We have heard the children say—
Gentle children. whom we love—
Long ago, on Christmas Day,
Came a message from above.

Still, as Christmas-tide comes round,
They remember it again—
Echo still the joyful sound
"Peace on earth, good-will to men!"

Yet the hearts must childlike be
Where such heavenly guests abide;
Unto children, in their glee,
All the year is Christmas-tide!

Thus, forgetting tricks and play
For a moment, Lady dear,
We would wish you, if we may,
Merry Christmas, glad New Year!
Christmas, 1867.

Welcome down the rabbit hole once again my friends. This poem by Lewis Carroll was found in the back of a copy of Through the Looking-Glass and What Alice Found There. In researching the history of this poem I found the All Saints, the Lewis Carroll Memorial Window at Daniell Chapel in England. The 3 centre panels contain verses from this Lewis Carroll’s poem. The window was designed by the stained glass artist Geoffrey Webb and depicts a Nativity scene, at which both Carroll and Alice are present. This is a must see for anyone that loves Wonderland.

For our challenge this week let's get into the Christmas spirit. The challenge is to use red, green, + one color. You can still use other colors for hair and skin. Just make the main use of color red, green, + one.

Our wonderful sponsor this week is Pixie Dust Studio. The lucky winner will receive your choice of 2 digital images.

Make sure to pop past the Oh Alice Blog to see the rest of the Amazing DT creations!

CHAPTER 42: The Flowers are Talking!

`O Tiger-lily,' said Alice, addressing herself to one that was waving gracefully about in the wind, `I wish you could talk!' `We can talk,' said the Tiger-lily: `when there's anybody worth talking to." Alice was so astonished that she could not speak for a minute: it quite seemed to take her breath away. At length, as the Tiger-lily only went on waving about, she spoke again, in a timid voice -- almost in a whisper. `And can all the flowers talk?' `As well as all can,' said the Tiger-lily. `And a great deal louder.' 

Hello from all of us in Wonderland! This week we would like you to have a go at making your own flowers! So get fun creating, we can't wait to see what you come up with!

This week we are being sponsered by 'Some Odd Girl', who have gorgeous Digi Stamps that the DT have been luckily enough to create with this week. Make sure to pop past the Oh Alice Blog to see what they have created!

Sorry my post is late, but we have been at my Daughters Karate Grading all day, needless to say I have one very tired Girl! But one with a brand new brown belt...Yay!! I am so proud of her, it was a very hot day today and she gave it her all. Love you Ella! 

Hope everyone is having a Lovely Weekend!
