TGF 2nd BIRTHDAY BLOG HOP!!

Sunday, August 1, 2010

Hellooooo sweet peeps! Welcome to the two year anniversary birthday blog hop for The Greeting Farm!! If you'd like to hop along with us tonight, then head on over to The Greeting Farm blog where the master list is, to find out where to start hopping!

I'm soooo thrilled for Marie and her incredible stamp company! She's come a LONG way since the Pink Poison days and a handful of stamps. Congratulations Marie on your 2nd birthday and I am SO looking forward to another year of incredible stamps and characters!

In celebration of this momentous occasion, I inked up the BRAND NEW Cupcake Anya digi stamp since it all started with her and a few of her pirate friends! :)

She's such a cutie...and all grown up now! Before you know it, she'll be off to kindergarten and having kids of her own! (Oh, wait! She's done that already! lol) hehehe

I colored her with my reinkers and aquapainter brush on Georgia Pacific cardstock. Then I used this week's Mojo Sketch Challenge (MOJO149) for my layout and some of that yummy paper from Basic Grey's Olivia collection. I found the perfect cupcake sentiment from Stamping Bella and since it's a birthday card, it has to have some bling on it, right?? :)

Thanks so much for stopping by! Head on back to the TGF blog to find out where to go next!

Sandra,

Wow I love those banner things behind her and the papers and layout you used is super adorable. How funny that so far we have all colored her hair in that light blond look!!! Well I did add a 2nd project with her in dark brown hair, but my first one had the light blond look and so has all the other Critter Crew girls I have seen so far!!!

Love this creation so adorable!!!!
