This is the new sketch challenge at THE GREETING FARM BLOG. The hot air balloon is from the new Fly Away set (comes with the cute little piggy I used last week). Our wonderful DT leader Jessica provided this awesome sketch for the challenge.

For some reason I have trouble with sketch challenges in general. It took me forever to do this one and I still am not sure about it. The only thing I do know is that I love the balloon stamp and will be using it alot.

I made the inside a pop up card just because I can't seem to leave anything flat. I used the cuttlebug swirl folder on white paper and then randomly cut out cloud shapes.

Now, here is the big news... The Greeting Farm is celebrating its birthday/anniversary and here are all the details for joining in on the fun!

We are very excited to announce that the August release will be a COMBINED TGF/ Club Anya release! That's right, the Farmers, Gardeners, and Team Anya are all joining farm forces for what we hope to be our biggest and best release EVER!
