Happy Tuesday everyone! It’s finally here…..RELEASE DAY at The Greeting Farm for the new March stamps: I LOVE DAD, I LOVE MOM and MON AMIE ANYA!! We've had previews of these awesome stamps over the last few days on the TGF Blog, and NOW they are available in The Greeting Farm Store. Since it’s Release Day we are having a BLOG HOP where one lucky person will win this entire release!

TGF Design Team:







Surprise... I've got not one but two cards to share for the hop today! I got the idea to make a subtle patterned background using the fun mugs that are included in each of the I Love Dad and I Love Mom clear sets by simply stamping them repeatedly in a light grey ink. Then I searched through my TGF stamps to put together the perfect little family groupings. For my Dad card I used Ian from the New Parents set for Pops, Ian from the Amazing Duo set for big brother and Ian from the Oh Baby set for little brother. Mom Anya is also from the New Parents set and baby Anya is from the Oh Baby set too while big sis Anya and their little pooch are from the Signature set. I really had a blast finding all the different sized characters in my stamp stash and mixing things up a bit. :)
Ok, Happy Hopping!
