There's something fishy going on at the Farm...something a little creepy too...something TOTALLY new!  After the success of TGF's Digital mermaid line last year, we've had some requests for rubber and we are PROUD to introduce "SYREN!"

I have to say that my all time favourite TGF Stamps are the Creepers, I don't know what it is, but I just Love them and Miss Syren is no exception! You can totally image her being a hit with the Mermen down in Creeper Town...hehe! And you know what, why wouldn'y she be, l mean look at her, she oozes Sassy and Attitude!

Just like her name, this sassy siren will be released on April 1st-TOMORROW, along with Surfer Anya, Daisy Sprout, and the HUGE "Creepin" set on a FULL-sheet of rubber! SO exciting!  Be sure to check out the unveiling of TGF's new CHALLENGE TEAM on our new CHALLENGE BLOG! Can you say "I Love Farm Fresh Chellenges" Of course you can...hehe!

One Proud Mummy!

Ok so not too sure if everyone saw Ella's card in my last post, but her card made Top 3 over at 'Make it Colourful'. She was hasseling me to check everyday at least 3 times a day to check to see if she had won, so it was a long few days for her...hehe! So finallyon Tuesday when we checked she had made the top 3. She was very excited and asked 'What do I win?'. I told her that she didn't win anything, but she got to display this badge on my blog. She was kind of happy with know 9 year old girls, it's all about what THEY can get..hehe! Anyway she can't wait for the next challenge to start, so thanks so much to all the girls over at Make it Colourful for the fabulous challenge and Ella is definitely looking forward to playing along next time!

Well done Ella, I am very proud...hehe! Think she is definitely going to give me a run for my coloring...hehe!

Make it Crafty Kids Challenge!

Over at Make It Colorful they have started a kids challenge. As soon as I told my Daughter Ella about it she wanted to play along. So the challenge was to use Pink in your coloring. Ella made a card with Tilda, which she colored in Pink and she also colored up Fancy Anya in Pink, but she hasn't had a chance to put it onto a card yet.

She is doing so well with her coloring lately, might have a bit of competition...hehe!

So if you have kids please send them over to Make It Colorful so that they can join in the fun!

Thanks for looking at Ella's Creations!

Pink, Pink & More Pink!

Down on the Farm this week for FFF we want you to get out your Favourite color and create a Monochromatic Card. Ok so it doesn't have to be your favourite color, but it's so much more fun to create with your favourite color...hehe!

Ever since I was a little girl I have loved the color PINK, I am always drawn to anything Pink....hehe! So it is no suprise that when it comes to creating I always look to my stash of Pink paper first. So as soon as I saw that we were doing a Monochromatic challenge I knew that it was going to have to be PINK!

So get creating your Monochromatic Cards for your chance to win 'Twirl Anya'

Also don't forget that over at M4M's we still have our Brown Copic Male Cards challenge going on and M4M's is now selling The Greeting Farm Stamps, which everyone knows are my ALL TIME favourite stamps...hehe! Also don't forget that Mad For Markers is going to be at the Melbourne Paperific Craft Show on April 1-3, so make sure to pop past and say hi if you are going!

Today over at the Farm we have a new FFF for you and this week we have a color challenge for you! Aren't these colors just Gorgeous! Very Spring Time....hehe! Reminds me of Lemon Meringue and Lime Pies....ummm....I'm getting hungry just thinking about it...hehe!

Ok So  I have to admit that these are sooo NOT my usual colors and I was a little nervous with them, but I am soooo happy with the end result. Sometimes a challenge really is a challenge...hehe! I seem to be steping outside my comfort a lot lately with using different colors. Hey at least I am giving some of my less used Copic Markers a little bit of love...hehe! They must have thought that they were destined to stay at the bottom of my Copic Container...hehe!

M4M Friday Inspiration!

It's time for some M4M's Friday Inspiration! Our current M4M challenge is to use your Brown Copics and make a male card. Now I have to say that male cards are NOT my strong point, I think it has to do with the lack of flowers and bling....hehe! BuT I am happy with how this card turned out! 

I have kind of become addicted to this hair color combo over the last few months, so I have used my brown copics for my hair as well as for his pants!

Copic Colors Used:
Hair - E79, E37, E35, E31
Eyes - B00, B02
Shirt - C3, C1
Pants - E44, E43, E42, E41

Hope you are inspired to get out those brown Copics and get coloring. Hope everyone has a Great weekend!

Something Different!

I have been seeing some GORGEOUS Scrap LO's over on the Lovely Tanya's Blog and she has inspired me to do some scrappin, so Thank-you Tanya! I should also mention that I have borrowed a couple of Tanyas fantastic ideas from some of her LO's, so hope you don't mind Tanya!

 Tanya also hosts a challenge blog called 'Get Picky', and so I decided why not enter. This week they have a photo inspiration challenge, here is the photo. Isn't this just Gorgeous! Now I haven't gone with the colors from the photo, but I have gone with the flowers and romance of it, by scrapping a LO of me and my Amazing Husband!

I finally got my hands on some Graphic 45, Once upon a springtime paper and I have to say that I LOVE it! I had so much fun Scrapping this LO, You will definitely be seeing more scrapping from me!

A christmas FFF!

Well it's time for another FFF and this week over at the Farm we want you to use up some off your Christmas Stash. Now it doesn't have to be a christmas card, although I have made mine into one,  just as long as it usues up some of your stash of Christmas Gear and lets face we all have plenty of that lying around...hehe!

For my card I pulled out my Basic Grey Jovial paper pad, so all of my papers are from this pad. I then decided to use cheeky Beach and make my card into a christmas card as down here in Australia we have our Christmas in Summer, so cheeky beach is perfect for an Australian Christmas! I also bought this gorgeous Christmas sentiment and die set from tickled Pink Stamps last year, but for some reason I never used it, so I decided it was time this set got some love and I can tell you that this will definitely get a lot of love come christmas time this year!

So make sure to play along for your chance to win your very own Cheeky Beach!

My Card was colored using Copic Sketch Markers on Xpress It Blending card, which is all available from Mad For Markers! And don't forget that over on the challenge blog Mad For Markers is hosting a brown copic challenge, so get those brown markers out and start coloring!
