Aloha it's anthoer TGF Challenge!

This week sketch challenge is by Lynda!

Here's my take (I turned it around)

This LO is about our time at Tokyo Disney Sea!  We had just gotten off their water ride, which was so needed cause the humidity in Japan was horrendous!  If I could I would have stayed on that ride the entire day!  We were soaking wet, you could see it on Cyn and Steph's shirt but not on mine since I was wearing black.  We definitely had so much fun that day even if we were all miserable in the humidity!

Of course I used the Sunshine kit for this LO along with Mindy Terasawa's Sun Shiney Day kit.  I stamped the flowers on the bottom, used the stitch stamp along the borders of my LO and I also used the Smiley flowers as embellishments.

Now it's your turn...take the challenge, create a LO based on Lynda's sketch, who knows you could be the lucky winner!!!  Simply upload your LO to  TGF Galleria>Scrapbooking Kits>Contests/Challenges> 7-11 Sketch (I'm not quite sure if that's the exact folder, but you'll see it when you navigate around the gallery...As of right now Jess has not created a folder...will post a new link if it isn't what I posted.

For Cass

Made this card for my GOD Daughter Cass.  I owe her last years birthday pres, Christmas, 6th grade grad so I couldn't or didn't think it was appropriate to make her a card for all those occasion and decided to just make a universal card.  Call it lazy or procrastinating but I at least made her a card.  

As of right now, this little cutie is my favorite out of the Farm line!  I thinks she's so adorable and thought it would be perfect for Cass.  Since I see Fleur more Hawaiian than an Enchanted little cutie, I thought what a perfect card from me to her!  Blah, blah, blah, blah! haha!  I'm exhausted, it's well pass midnight and I have a long and early day tomorrow!  So without further ado here's the card (lifted the LO from the Artist behind the Farm)

Hope you're all having a wonderful day!  Aloha!

TGF Challenge - Jacilynn's Sketch

Happy Thursday!  It's TGF Challenge time!  Sorry for posting this late.  I went to the dentist yesterday and after I got home I wasn't feelin' up to it.  They redid my old fillings and my body's metabolisim was on overdrive and they needed to numb me SEVERAL times.  I don't mind the shots, I just kept feelin' the drilling...yikes!  Needless to say I wasn't feelin' all to well afterwards and was in bed the whole night!  

Anyhow, it's another challenge at the Farm so please join us!  Our sketch was from the talented Jacilynn, she's is rolling w/the sketches don't you think?  Upload your layout using TGF Stamps to TGF Galleria>Scrapbooking Kits>Contests/Challenges> 6-24 Sketch.  ONE lucky winner will receive the new MY FAVORITE THING set featuring Oliver and Amelia!  

Here's mine:

Sorry about the horrible pic, the lighting in my office was horrible!!  Plus I printed out a scanned photo and it was awful!

Need more inspiration?  Check out what the gals did with the sketch!

Good luck and see you back here next Thrusday!  Happy scrapping and Aloha from Hawaii!

I forgot to post this on Father's Day!  I made this card for my dad on Father's Day...made my FIL a different one but I like this one.  I lifted the LO from Kristine W.  Nothing special about it except it's for my dad.  I don't know about creating masculine cards w/my Ian's or Wild Sprout when it comes to older men...LOL!  But that's not to say I won't.  Just felt I'd make them something different.  Thanks for stopping by!  Aloha!

A card for baby Joey

Short post much going on.  It's 2:27 AM and I still up! Been doing a lot of research and on top of that, I had my allergies earlier today, took benedryl and slept the day away.  I suppose I need to call it a night after I post this.  Anyhow, here's a card I made for my cousin's son.  Used Mindy Terasawa's Monster Muncher's which you can get at DD.  Real simple card...  Thanks for stopping by!  Happy Aloha Friday!

TGF Summer LO Challenge!

Hey folks!  It's Challenge time at the Farm!  Our challenge was to create a summer theme LO.  I just love summer and living in Hawaii, we have that year round.  

I created this LO of my dad and my sister at the famous Waikiki beach.  They were visiting during Christmas (see...I wasn't joking about our summers being year round...LOL).  Going to the beach with my dad was a milestone because he had suffered a stroke and heart attach eight months prior.  It's a slow and long recovery but he's making it and I thank GOD everyday for this miracle!!! 

Please join us and create a LO with a summer theme!  Easy-peasy!  I'm sure since most of you have kids on summer vacation already and if you're a scrapper you've already busted out the camera!  LOL!  Join us and upload your LO at:TGF Galleria>Scrapbooking Kits>Contest/Challenges>Beach Theme no later than Tuesday, June 22nd.  Winner will be announced on Thursday the 24th with our next SB contest and ONE LUCKY WINNER will receive a 4x6 set of their CHOICE! 
Can't wait to see everyone's creations!  Don't forget to check out the other DT's inspirational work:

It's FFF at the Farm (TGF)

Aloha!  Today is FFF (Farm Fresh Friday) at the Farm today!!  We're to make a LO using another wonderful sketch from Mercy!  Please feel free to join us on this challenge!!!

Here's my take on the sketch

Doesn't this LO scream SUMMER VACATION?  LOL!  I took this photo when we were visiting the island of Maui.  Love that there weren't anyone in this photo.  Usually the beaches are crowded.  Of course I used the new TGF SB kit Sunshine!  See how versatile this kit is?  I mean yesterday's LO was of Japan, today its of Hawaii! 
Simply upload your LO or card to the following gallery category:  
TGF Galleria>Contests/Challenges>FFF>Mercy Sketch 6-11

Here's the sketch to follow or grap some inspiration from:

Hope to see your LOs at the gallery!!  Good luck and please stop by my fellow DT's blog and check out what they've created!

Happy scrapping!

TGF's New Scrapbook kit - SUNSHINE!

Hey everybody!

We are SO stinkin' excited over at The Greeting Farm...and ready to spread the SUNSHINE!  Why?  Because SUNSHINE is the name of the newest 8 1/2x11 JUMBO KIT of rubber stamps being previewed today on the TGF Blog!

Just in time for summer, SUNSHINE is full of larger sized stamps, perfect for scrapbooking, cardmaking, or any papercrafting!  And ONE LUCKY WINNER just might take one home after hoppin' around the Scrapbooking DT's blogs today!

In addition?  The TGF Scrapbooking Team is THRILLED to welcome LYNDA NIELSEN to our gang!  You may recognize Lynda as one of our Gardeners and now she is back and ready to get scrappin'!   Welcome!

For our Challenge today, (did you KNOW that TGF is doing weekly scrapbooking challenges on the TGF Blog?) I used this great sketch by SB team member Jaci:

My layout today is (what else...JAPAN!) I'm tryin' to finish at least one album this year!  LOL!  And since I have tons of photo's of my trips back home, I thought since they're all still fresh in my memory to finally complete a whole album!  Of course that doesn't mean that all my LOs will be of Japan after all this is a summer kit, but just because it's a summer kit doesn't mean you have to use it for just the summer LOs!!  That's what is so great about these kits!  They're so versatile!  Anyhow, This is my title page of my album. 

I'm so excited to show you more week after week and hope you'll play along with our challenges too!  They are every Thursday for scrapbooking and each week we offer up a GREAT prize!

Not much time...

Aloha! Sorry been MIA since last Friday.  From here on out  who knows when I'll be able to post.  I'm a bit sad I won't be able to create and blog as often as I would like but what can you do?  Hopefully once everything is all done I can get back into the groove.  But until then, I'll at least have two or three (if I'm lucky) updates on my the blog.  Thanks as always for stopping by and checkin' in!  Again, I hope to find some time to visit everyone's blog!

Onto my card, this card is for my dh's niece.  Seems like this is my go to LO when I when I'm in a hurry.  It's cool...I don't mind.  I'm just happy I get to create something!

I just adore this image.  It's of Cuddle Anya which I got from Pineapple Cove.  If you want her please visit ManLe's store or for those of you who are not living on the island they now have an online store.  I also used my girl Mindy's dp called It's a Girl Thing which you can purchase here.  And while you're there, check out her other great kits!!!

And just because I'm feeling generous, I will give away this quickpage to one lucky follower.  Please leave a comment telling me where you're from, how'd you find my blog and what is your favorite place to shop (craft shopping) online.  Good luck!

PS Please check back later tonight for the preview of the new TGF Scrapbook Kit!

PSS - I'll be teaching another Copic Hair Session at Pineapple Cove this weekend.  I believe there's a couple of seats still open.  Please contact ManLe to reserve a seat.  Thanks and hope to see some of you there!

Coaster Bag

The other day we had a playdate at Pineapple Cove and we made this cute little Coaster Bag.  I have to say, whenever I'm there I never really make anything or finish a project but I was so into it I made two.  Actually I didn't finish them cause we were missing the bags so I had to finish it at home  (I rarely finish a project if I take home) and this is the outcome:

I have another one in the works but I'm not making it a bag...stay tune (like I'm sure you're on the edge of your seat waiting to see what I come up with...NOT! LOL!).  The paper I used was from Leslie's pile (thanks Leslie!).  I just thought it was just the cutest dp!

Anyhow, thanks for looking!  I hope to have some time to visit everyone's blog!  Hope everyone is doing well!  Aloha!

PS you can get the coasters from Pineapple Cove.  Also if you didn't know Pineapple Cove has an online store now!  Check it out!!!
