TGF Release Day and a CHA Relay!!

**This is my 2nd post today! Please scroll down or click HERE to see my Sparkle Creations card and announcement! Arigato!**


Hey everyone!

WELCOME to The Greeting Farm's CHA RELAY!   Our Design Team is ready and waiting for you to hop onto their blogs and find out JUST who will complete today's "relay".  The Greeting Farm is in HIGH cotton as we are wrapping up CHA out in Sunny L.A. and we have made it to RELEASE DAY!!!   WOO HOO!

Here is how today will work:

This is NOT a race, LOL.  You will have through tomorrow (3 Feb) at NOON CST to complete your card, so our overseas friends have plenty of time to play, too!

***On EACH DT member's blog, they have highlighted a STAMPING ITEM that they used in their cards.   Once you have gotten through each DT member's post, you should have a list of TEN ITEMS to use on your card to enter into the "CHA RELAY" Release Day contest.   One RANDOM WINNER will be chosen out of the participants who decide to make a card today (up until tomorrow at noon!) to win the ENTIRE RELEASE for FEBRUARY!!! ****

_________________________________

Here's MY card for today's relay!


I used one of the new stamps from the UBER fab Miss Anya "Hat's Off"! These are just the SWEETEST lil Missy's! She's very punk, I love that, lol! The papers I used are from BG's Bittersweet, my favorite paper of at the moment;) I did lots of *STITCHING* on my card (I also thought about Faux stitching or Paper Piercing...cause those would work too *wink*)! I always do, and I love the extra texture it adds:) I also used some PTI ribbon and buttons and my favorite silver pearls!
_____________________________

Don't forget to leave your comments for the DT, too, because ONE lucky winner who leaves comments for them and then comes back HERE to the TGF BLOG to let us know they did will ALSO take home the ENTIRE RELEASE this month!  That's right!  There areTWO WAYS to WIN!

Well, let's get STARTED!   Here is the order of the Hop/Relay today:
back to TGF BLOG

Thanks for joining us today and GOOD LUCK, paper crafters!  We are SO excited to see who will play along with our fun new challenge and can't WAIT to announce the winners-both from those who played along and those who left their sweet comments-ALL tomorrow!

HAPPY RELEASE DAY, everyone!

Hi Amber. I have to agree with Sammi, this is gorgeous. I think that the pink and the silver are just fantastic. Does faux stitching count? lol... I have a machine and I do sew clothes for my family, but I am not very good at stitching on my card stock. lol...Anyway your card is fabulous! Thanks for all the creative ideas. Hugs, Lisa G
