FLYIN WITH THE FARM BLOG HOP - WELCOME!!!

The blog hop officially starts today at 9:00 AM CST!
WELCOME to our FIRST EVER "Flyin' with the Farm" BLOG HOP!

We are super excited to be debuting FOUR NEW RELEASES and there are plenty of opportunities to WIN them, too! If you are just starting out on my blog, be sure to head on over to The Greeting Farm's blog to begin this fun Blog Hop! If you are already in on all the fun, then thanks for coming over from Sparkle's blog!


This new little hottie is Edward. Isn't he just the cutest thing? I have to admit I haven't yet read the Twilight series (though I loved vampire stories when I was a teen)but my daughter and her friends are totally smitten. Therefor, I consulted my daughter extensively while making these projects, thanks for all your help Lindsey-pie! Edward was so inspiring that I made a gift set that I thought would be fun for my daughter to give to her friends.

First up is a book mark (are those shirt-tails sticking out adorable or what?)made from the corner of a used envelope. I just cut off the corner, layered on some cardstock and ribbons and had a quick, easy gift for someone who loves to read. Restraining myself from using pop-dots was difficult but I tried to keep the bow, etc., flat so the book wouldn't be damaged when closed.

When I was digging through my punches I found the apple which was just the perfect size. It may be too tiny to read but inside the apple is a team Edward sign. I have no clue what that means but Lindsey assured me it was cool.


Next, I made a little gift box using the PIZZA BOX TUTORIAL from SCS. The only thing I did differently was to cut out an apple shape on the front and put some acetate behind it. We will probably fill it with those little chocolate hearts.

I put a magnet on the back of the "I heart Edward" oval so they could put it on their locker or fridge.



And finally, a card. Edward's awesome locks are peeking out of the torn heart. Since I didn't read the book I can't say for certain, but doesn't someone always get their heart broken in a love story?

Inside, Edward is stalked by a shadowy figure but he is just too stinkin cute to be eaten!





We have a ton of fun ways that you can WIN these stamps, including a WORD SCRAMBLE for you! Once you've completed today's hop, you will have all the letters you need to de-scramble and spell out a VERY important word ;) Once you know the answer, please email Jessica at yeahshestamps@gmail.com to let her know you've completed the blog hop and ONE lucky winner will be randomly selected to win Butterfly Wishes, her brand new stamp set with The Greeting Farm!

My clue for you today is the letter: Y

In addition, I am thrilled to be one of the FOUR NEW SUMMER GARDENERS. We all have some "candy" for you, so be sure to make it all the way to the end of today's event!
I will be giving away the new SOCCER IAN DIGI STAMP and you are going to LOVE him. Just leave a comment on my blog by midnight tonight and a winner will be chosen at random.

I hope you enjoy today's release party and have a splendid day "Flyin' with the Farm!" Releases are on sale now at The Greeting Farm's website. In addition, be sure to stop by the CLUB ANYA blog today as they have a surprise for you too! There's a new ALL-STAR in town and you WON'T want to miss him!

OH MY GOSH!!!! You have b;lown me away this is an incredible set! (You have to read the books by the way but I would avoid the film :D ) That book mark is a brilliant idea for a used envelope I will never throw one away again and the pizza box with magnet is very sweet and then the card melted my heart I am not sure if I can hop on I might just have to stay and admire for a while :)
