TGF Sweet September Blog Hop!!!!!!!

HELLO EVERYONE!  WELCOME ALL to the "SWEET SEPTEMBER" Blog Hop featuring our Farmers, Team Anya, and our beloved Critter Crew!   ALL THREE of our teams are joining forces today to bring you ONE SWEET Blog Hop with The Greeting Farm!

Just to recap, the new releases, "Sweet and Toxic", "Oh, Boy" Ian, and "SWEET" Anya are NOW in the TGF Store!  Also, our three new Marina Neira critters are available as digital downloads for INSTANT gratification!  Woo HOO!!!!

I have a card using the sweet new Marina Neira digi, Huey Birdhouse! He is seriously adorable and OH SO FUN to color!


This is such a beautiful image that I wanted to keep it the focus of my card, so the layout and embellishments are very minimal (I know! Don't expect that too often, lol!)
I colored Huey with Copics, these are the colors I used:


I also had some fun with my airbrushing system, I airbrushed the sky in! I had a bit of an airbrush emergency, I wanted to add some darker blue and it was a little too dark, but if you can't see where I messed up then I'm golden, lol! For the grass, I layed down a base of YG93 and then airbrushed some YG95 and YG99 for texture. I am SO addicted to airbrushing!

Be sure to stop by the TGF Blog if you are JUST beginning the hop and make it all the way to the CLUB ANYA & FRIENDS blog through the end to see the endless possibilities with this month's cute new additions to the Farm and to leave your comments along the way...there are some SWEET prizes to be had today!
