Happy Friday!
SWEET SEPTEMBER is ALMOST here! You know what that means?
It's time for another Farm Fresh Friday challenge but we have a SPECIAL treat for you today...and it's just as SWEET as it is TOXIC??? Yep, you guessed it...we are previewing a BRAND NEW set "Sweet and Toxic" set to release this coming Wednesday, September 1st at The Greeting Farm!
 EXCITED? Well, perhaps you'll be even MORE excited to know that our new CREEPER CREW sets are going to be released as 4x6 stamp sets WITH sentiments! How SWEET is that? You're probably noticing that all of this is just a LITTLE more sweet than toxic, huh?

Well let's show off these sassy new additions with some cards from the Farmers using Mercy's sketch as your challenge this week on the TGF Blog:

I used Toxic or is it Sweet?  The heads in the cupboard might give you a clue. You probably don't want to go trick or treating on her block! LOVE that skull too!
I used a card template I found in a papercraft magazine and adapted it to make a little cupboard to house Toxic's gruesome collection.
Now I am sure you are wondering where the heck Mercy's sketch is.  It is the background of the cupboard which you can't see.  I started out with the intention of making this a treat box.  I was going to attach the heads to rollos and make the front open. However,  I ended up just making it a decoration and the front doesn't open.  Here is what the background looked like before I placed it inside.
Did I mention I love the skull?  Here is the awesome part....... those skulls are embossed with GLOW IN THE DARK EMBOSSING POWDER!!!!
It looks waaaay cooler IRL.  Last year I was driving to work and thought oooh wouldn't glow in the dark embossing powder be cool? And sure enough when I googled it I found some at The Crafty PC.  I ordered it, set it on a shelf and promptly forgot about it.  When I saw the skulls I immediately remembered and started searching.  Awesome stuff!

Be sure to stop by the TGF Blog today to see all of the creations the FARMERS have for you and be sure to stop by the CA&F Blog tomorrow for MORE previews and an announcement!

One more announcement here on the TGF Farmer we sadly say a (bitter)SWEET goodbye to two of our dear, dear Farmers, Kadie and Cindy :( It's hard to believe these two beautiful souls have been Farmer's for a year already, isn't it? Parting is SWEET sorrow, indeed, and I'm not just saying that :( On behalf of Marie, Jess, and ALL of TGF, we say a SUPER DUPER Thank you to these two wonderful ladies and just KNOW that you'll never be FAR from the Farm! Best of luck and THANK YOU. for. EVERYTHING.

As for our little challenge today?
