The Greeting Farm - Focus on Marina Neira

I'm sorry I didn't get this posted this morning,
the time ran away from me,
so I thought I would post a few of my most recent cards
using images by Marina Neira available at
The Greeting Farm!

This first one is called
"Ivy Christmas Tree"
I just can't resist calling her a gorgeous fox,
because, after all, SHE IS a Fox!
I had such a blast coloring her, and
as for the tree, I tried giving it a textured look,
Did I succeed? 
I know you can't see it clearly in the picture
but I used very fine white glitter on the "snowy" parts
of the tree, and a few dots of it in the sky, so it appears
as though it's snowing.  I should have taken a closer picture but
I didn't, and believe it or not, I sold these cards at work
the other day.  --  Scavengers!!!  LOL
These adorable images by Marina Neira are
a BIG HIT with the girls at work.
You can't believe all the ooohing and aaahing over their cuteness!

Here I am just rambling on and on,
I'm just going to show you how "foxy" she really is!

I used the new Holiday papers from The Greeting Farm as well
These are called "Merry Merry"
My little tag with a sentiment from TGF's "Keep Cozy" set
and just lots of scrappy things!

This next card was created using "Marlene Monkey"
She's not digital, she's actually already in Rubber!
What do you think of Marina's ability to just capture your heart
with these adorable little critters?

Only a few of the papers here were from
TGF's "Merry Merry" paper pack

Another card that was just scarfed right up...
I swear the ink was barely dry, and the girls at work bought it from me already!  LOL
(yes it was dry, but you know it went so quick I couldn't believe it)

Now, I made these two cute little Halloween or Fall type cards
just 2 days ago, and these too are GONE!
I can't keep anything!
What on earth am I going to use to send out this year?

Again I used "Marlene Monkey" and "Laurie the Skunk"
(both are in Rubber at The Greeting Farms Shop)

For these cards I did some heat embossing on the Monkey card,
and some embossing with an embossing folder and some glitter
on the Skunk card.  Both turned out adorable, and I'm unsure
which one I liked better!

Alright, have I jabbered on and on long enough?
I hope you've enjoyed my little spotlight on TGF's
Amazingly Talented New Artist
