I'm a Guest Designer for The Greeting Farm!!

It's a happy, happy day for me today because I finally get to announce what I've been holding in for a little while......I'm the November Guest Designer for The Greeting Farm!!! :) :) :)

For those of you who have followed me from the beginning, you know that The Greeting Farm stamps started my cardmaking, blogging, and hoarding obsession with stamps!! You can see my first blog post HERE which features my card that won the Monochromatic Challenge from January 4th, 2010! If you can't tell, I LOVE these stamps!!

Every Monday for the month of November, I'll be showcasing a card/project on their blog HERE!
I'm so excited about this opportunity and just hope and pray they like what I bring to the table!! Thank you so much Jessica and Marie! This is definitely a dream come true for me. :)

For my card today, I decided to use one of the newly released stamps called Holiday Anya 2. I love her hair and the flowing bow.....sooooooo adorable! I stamped her on X-Press It Blending Card and colored her with Copics.

Want a chance to win her?? Then leave a comment below on this post and head over to The Greeting Farm's Facebook page and "Like" them HERE. Jessica will announce the winner of this cute stamp on the Facebook page!!

Copics:
Skin: E000, E00, E01, E11
Hair: E49, E47, E44
Dress/Shoes: G46, G28, G24, G12
Bow: R29, R27, R24, R22

 I also decided to make something different than my regular 6x6 cards. I found this awesome tutorial by Katie Tate HERE for this special Folded Card. I love how it turned out so I'm pretty sure I'll make more of these soon!

Here's what the card looks like when it's folded flat for mailing.


Here's the card when it's opened up to be displayed.

Supplies:
Core'dinations Cardstock
My Mind's Eye Wonderful Winter 12x12 paper pad
Spellbinders: Floral Ovals/Standard Ovals
Walnut Stain Distress Ink
LLLC Filigree Corner Die
CTMH Pearls

Here's a side view so you can see the dimension. The middle pops out to the front so your image can be the star of the show. I cut the sentiment from one of the dps and made a little banner to go above Holiday Anya 2.
Well, that's my big NEWS that I've been so eagerly waiting to share with all of you!! This is truly a blessing and I'm just so happy to be asked to be a part of their Design Team! I'll be here and on TGF Blog every Monday in November with a TGF creation so I hope you come back and leave me some love. :)

I also want to thank all of you who have been so supportive of me these past several years. It's hard to believe that I'm coming up on my 3 year blogging anniversary in Feb. 2013. Time definitely flies when you are having fun!

Have a great week and see you back here soon!
Love ya,
Rosie :)

What a cool fold! I love these rich colors, too. Plus, your coloring of the image is fabulous. I particularly like how realistic her hair looks; you can actually see the strands with the way you colored it.
