THE GREETING FARM Critter Crew Blog Hop!!

Saturday, May 15, 2010

Helloooooo peeps!! Welcome to The Greeting Farm's Critter Crew Release Day blog hop!!

Today the Crafty Critter Crew are showcasing the three irresistible new digi images from Marina Neira being released today, so sit back, grab yourself your beverage of choice and enjoy the hop!

If you've traveled here from Jen's fabulous blog, then you're on the right track! But if you haven't and would like to hop along with us, then head over the very 'dirty' blog of Amber Hight, and start your journey there.

How adorable is little Irvin jamming away on his saxophone?!? Completely and utterly I think! I colored him with my reinkers and aquapainter brush on Georgia Pacific cardstock. His outfit matched up perfectly with Basic Grey's Marrakesh collection, so I used that paper. Then, because I didn't have any ribbon to match the deep hues of this paper, I decided to use an embellishment that I don't normally gravitate towards - a flower! And then that's when it hit me...I had created a card with paper and embellishments that looked like one of my Critter Crew Sistah's, Sparkle Smith!! So Sparkle, this card is an homage to your fabulous style my sweet friend! :)

By hopping along with us, you have a chance to win yourself all three Critter Crew images just by leaving a comment on each blog today! So don't forget to leave some love!

All three of Marina Neira's digital stamps are available right now over at The Greeting Farm, but before you head over there and make your purchase, head to your next stop along this hop, which is the talented Shaela's blog!

Thanks so much for stopping by today!!
