Where The Wild Things Are!

Friday, November 6, 2009

It's Friday already!! Woohoo!

This blasted cold is getting more and more annoying. The only symptom I have is this nagging shortness of breath and I keep coughing as a result of it. It's driving me mad! Anywhoooo...

It's Farm Fresh Friday over at The Greeting Farm blog again! And you guys are going to L.O.V.E. this one!! It's called Where The Wild Things Are! The only rule is that you have to create a card using one of Marina Niera's little critters!! Now if you don't have any of them in rubber form, don't worry, you can always download one of the digi's and play with that instead. And if you scroll down, you'll understand why you NEED to play along this week! ;) But before you do, here's some inspiration to get you started!

When Jess sent the DT this challenge, I immediately grabbed my copy of Where The Wild Things Are, which is buried in Syd's bookcase in her room. It's my ALL TIME favorite book - correction: my ALL TIME favorite children's book (the Twilight series of books are my all time favorite adult books!). And after poring through it again, I made a special trip to my LSS for some of Bo Bunny's Flutter Butter paper collection! I thought it'd be perfect for this challenge since it has a whimsical quality to it and earthy colors.

As always, I've colored Maggie Bunny with reinkers and an aquapainter brush. The ribbon is from the Christmas ribbon at Michaels and the swirl sticker is from the 12"x12" Flutter Butter combo adhesive sticker sheet. I lightly sponged the edges of the oval panel with Cool Caribbean and the edges of the patterned paper with Frayed Burlap from Ranger's Distress Ink line. Sooo loving that color right now! The sentiment is from TGF's Fly Away set.

Ok, here are all the details you need to know!


Yep, you heard it right! The Greeting Farm is having a Guest Designer search to work specifically with the WONDERFUL animal images by Marina Neira! We are looking for someone to work with these adorable critters for our next release through 12/31/09. Are you interested?Here's how to throw your name into this awesome contest:


1. You MUST use a TGF image by Marina Neira. If you do not own any, there are several digital downloads available through the TGF store. Normally it's not like us to use specific images, but because this is a Guest Designer contest, we want to see what you can do using her stamps.

2. For this week's CHALLENGE, you must create a "WILDLIFE" themed card using one of Marina's animals. Whatever that means to you is what you should create! We can't wait to see what you come up with!

3. Please Upload your creations by WEDNESDAY, November 11, 2009 at 11:59 PM CST into the TGF Galleria>Contests/Challenges>Farm Fresh Fridays>WILD WEEK 1

4. This is a two week cumulative contest. Although there WILL NOT be a prize this week, there will be at the end of next week's contest.

The chosen Guest Designer will receive ALL THREE images by Marina in rubber, plus all digital images by Marina in addition to the December release they will be working with and will be asked to sign a one-month Guest DT contract with TGF.We are SO WILD about this contest I can't even tell you! We wish all participants the BEST of luck and can't wait to see YOU out there...WHERE THE WILD THINGS ARE!If you have ANY questions about this contest, please email Jessica. GOOD LUCK to all who enter!
