It is unheard of for me to have 2 posts in one day lately but I am on vaca from work and I need a bunch of thank you cards.   Sooo, I  used the MOJO MONDAY SKETCH CHALLENGE as inspiration to make a quickie this morning before I go off on my million and one errands.
They always have such great sketches over there, I wish I had time to do more of them.
I used the pennant punch again to make the circle background (told ya it was going to be used a lot!) and my scallop circle punch.  The paper is from the Prima Botanical collection.
Make sure to scroll down to check out the TGF blog hop and learn about their new clear stamps!!!

I can see CLEARLY now at TGF...

It's gonna be a BRIGHT and SUNSHINY day for sure at The Greeting Farm!  Hooray!

Today is the day- two new sets are available for purchase as we are proud to debut our new line of CLEAR stamps!  

Here are my projects using the MY FAIRY PRINCESS set:
A card (and some other stuff) that coordinate with my Fairy Party Invite.
A festive banner made of stamped muslin.
And finally, a little vellum votive cover.

We are SO excited to begin today's hop combining some TGF 'alum' with our Farmers!   Be sure to check out the TGF BLOG for a complete list of links, as one lucky winner will receive BOTH sets just for commenting and participating in the hop!  And just in case you get lost along the way in all of the excitement that is CLEARLY is the list:

That's it for me today, but be sure to head over to the TGF BLOG, where it's ALL beginning!  HAPPY RELEASE DAY, everyone!

Hey, everyone!

I am back to fully reveal what may have been just a cloudy snippet yesterday... did you see through our little surprise or are you CLEARLY stumped?

Well, wonder no more because some of the cherished members of the TGF alum along with the Farmers are thrilled to bring you a BRAND NEW line by TGF: 

Before we go any further, these stamps are not replacing our rubber line.  We are testing the waters to bring you some fun new designs, and most of all QUALITY stamps!  To add to the fun, we also have the opportunity to bring you some RE-RELEASES, in addition to NEW releases and we are excited to get started with our first two sets!  


I used MY FAIRY PRINCESS  to make a fairy party invitation out of a wooden spool.
Scroll down to the bottom if you want to see how it was made.

So, what do you think?  Are you CLEARLY stunned or could you see RIGHT THROUGH our snippet yesterday?   Anxious to try the new line?  Well, be sure to leave a comment on the TGF BLOG to see who ELSE is previewing the FUN'll see some familiar faces in addition to our Farmers and there's a SET OR TWO UP FOR GRABS there, too!

See you tomorrow for the official release of our first two CLEAR stamp sets, Bantastic and Fairy Princess.  Thanks for stopping by!

The wooden spool was painted a shiny aqua color and stamped in gold with the butterfly stamp included in the set.
The invitation was printed on a strip of card stock and stamped in green with the mushroom stamps from the set.
The other side was stamped with the saying included in the set and the edge was attached to the spool with double sided tape.
The invite was wrapped around the spool and a strip was made about 1/4 thinner to wrap around it.  I used  a small piece of velcro on the edges of the outer strip to hold it together.
These would be so cute for a little girl's fairy or princess themed birthday party.  Of course they would have to be hand delivered (maybe in a coordinating box) but how fun!
