Farm Fresh Friday-Hat's Off to You!!!

Hello everyone!   It's time for another Farm Fresh Friday and we are gearing up for CHA (tomorrow!) AND a bunch of UBER-fabulous NEW RELEASES at The Greeting Farm....all coming to you on February 1st!

Today is also our FIRST day of Feb. previews and we have some announcements to make here on the Farm.  Sadly we say goodbye to Tammy Maxvill as her term as Farmer has come to a close.  We will miss you Tammy and THANK YOU for all of your wonderful contributions, tutorials, and awesome 3D proejcts!  We also have a new addition!  or TWO!? Please welcome (back!) BUTTERCUP as a FULL-TIME FARMER!  We are THRILLED that she will be joining us through the month of June along with our other 3 new Farmers and are VERY excited about what she has in store for us!   As if that weren't exciting enough, please SHAELA ODD as our February Guest Designer for TGF!  Some of you may recognize the sweet Shaela from her term with our Critter Crew and we are very happy to have her back as our February Guest :)

Today we have Team Anya joining us for FFF as well, so it's without further adieu that we also welcome PEGGY McCURRY as our FEBRUARY GUEST DESIGNER for Team Anya!   Peggy has been a long-time fan of the Farm and has wow'd us with her amazing layouts (which we've CASED a few times, I think!) and we are glad to have her!

Always exciting here on the Farm!  And now onto the Challenge!  This week, we invite our friends and customers to join us in our "Hat's Off to You!" challenge!...use a HAT theme on your card or project!  You can cut one out/alter a stamp, use Hat paper, hat racks, hat pins, baseball caps, anything to do with HATS on your challenge card.  You can also create a 3d/altered item in the shape of a hat?  Whatever you fancy, it's hat's off to you this week!

With that in mind, the DT has a sweet surprise for you today!

  1. INTRODUCING...Miss Anya "Hat's OFF"!

As SOON as I saw this image, like .25 seconds later, I thought "OMG she looks like Fleur Delacour from Harry Potter!!!" 

Am I right or what?? I think she's one of my favorite images ever because I love Fleur's character! So graceful and innocent, just like Miss Anya:) I got some new Prima paper pads this week and this one, called Annalee, is my favorite! This pariticular pattern too! As soon as I saw it, I knew I wanted Miss Anya to be sitting in this sweet little flower garden!

I called Fleur, I mean Miss Anya with Copics to match Fleur's colors, but it happened to work well with this paper too! I don't think she's supposed to have gray, but I didn't like the solid blue look so threw some gray on her to break it up:)
Well, that's it for me today, but make sure you check out the TGF BLOG to see what the others have been up to and find out how you can WIN a Miss Anya Hat's OFF! by leaving comments TODAY!   In addition, one lucky winner of this week's "Hat's Off" challenge will ALSO take home a Miss Anya "Hat's Off" set!  TWO chances to win!  Good luck ,everyone!

Fleur - uh - I mean ANYA is sooo beautiful on your card! What a gorgeous debut, I fell in love with your ribbon through the nestie frame technique. Oh my word, just adorable from top to bottom. That garden is perfect for this belle. ;)
