The Greeting Farm - Farm Fresh Friday Challenge - Where The Wild Things Are!

Happy Friday Everyone!
(although I am writing this post on Tuesday) ha ha
I am out of town, until Sunday, but wanted to be sure
that this post got published for Friday!

Did you see that title above?
Yes, it says
"Where the Wild Things Are"
Well, this weeks Farm Fresh Friday Challenge
is Exactly That!
We would love to see you create a Wild Thing Themed card
You can read more details on
The Greeting Farm Blog
I hope you'll all participate, because this one was a FUN one.
But then again, they are ALL fun aren't they?

I used one of the new Marina Neira stamps from
The Greeting Farm, for my "Wild Things" card.
Marlene is just darling!  She was part of the October release.
I just never get tired of her.  She's so darn cute!

I started out with this "Jungle" idea in my brain, and then decided
that I would have to actually draw my own jungle background
since I have no jungle themed background stamps.

I started out with the idea that
Marlene should be skipping down a pathway,
possibly coming out of the jungle.
Okay my trees don't look so much like a jungle,
but at least they do look like they are the woods.
Soooo, therefore my "Where the Wild Things" card is born!

I used only 1 piece of designer paper,
1 piece of ribbon, and 2 metal buttons,
That's it!!!
Can you believe it?

I now present you with
My "Wild Thing" Marlene!
She looks as though she's going to skip right out
of the card!  I fell in love with the outcome immediately!

The sentiment was taken from TGF's Hope & Grace Set,
The inside is decorated with the same DP, but left blank
so that this card could be used for almost any occasion.

I hope you liked my card,
For the next two FFF's, we are going WILD! 


Yep, you heard it right!  For the first time ever, 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 WILDLY awesome contest:


*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.

*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!

*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

*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!

Now "Skip" along and get started on yours!
I can't wait to see all the entries for this awesome contest!
