FFF Challenge - In with the New!

Happy Friday everyone!!  Before I let you in on the first Farm Fresh challenge details, be sure to check out the TGF Blog today for our RELEASE DAY BLOG HOP!  There are lots of wonderful inspirations and cuteness going on and with any release there is a prize.  You'll definitely want to check it out! :)

Some note worthy reminders:
  • Be sure to familiarize yourself with the new Farm Fresh challenge blog tabs.  LOTS of helpful info including FAQs, challenge rules, and MUCH more. 
  • You'll also want to familiarize yourself with our NEW Galleria category "Farm Fresh Challenges 2011."  This is where you will upload all of your wonderful creations.
Now on to the challenge...  In celebration of our NEW blog, NEW challenges and NEW Design Team, we are bringing you all things (you guessed it) NEW with TGF.  Use a new TGF image, new paper, a new technique, you get the picture. 

Before I share mine, please be sure to visit my FF DT sistas for some inspiration: Jessica, Rachel, 1LuvnMama, Tasha, & Sparkle.  Don't forget to leave a comment, there is a rumor that there might be a hidden Syren on one of our blogs. :)


Waves of Joy with Surfer Anya
 
For my card I am debuting the ever so cute and in my opinion, long-awaited, SURFER ANYA! Chee-hoo!  I just love her to pieces!!!  Isn't she just the cutest surfer girl with her boardshorts, bikini top, surfboard and flower in her hair?  I just love all her wavy hair too.  She is officially my favorite Anya! {haha}
So what's new on my card?
  • Surfer Anya
  • Designer paper
  • Surf board stickers
  • The sentiment, yes, it is from the old Anya Says stamps set, however it's the first time I've ever used it.  So that counts.  {hehe}
  • The layout
  • This is a new card fold, as well. Yes, scroll down to see the reveal :)
  • As for technique, I tried a fun new way to color hair thanks to fellow TGF DT Buttercup.  To see her technique click {here}.
Here's she is in all her golden tan glory and her shiney surf board ready to grab a tube!

So are you ready to play? I hope so because the prize is a SINGLE stamp of YOUR choice!

Good luck to everyone and MAHALO {THANKS} for celebrating with The Greeting Farm!!
Hugs,
Leanne
