Lollipop Crafts Sponsor Spotlight with...

The Greeting Farm

Woo Hoo!!!  I am pretty excited about our sponsor this week.  This is one of my top 3 favorite stamp companies and the one that actually got me to create this blog where I have met so many wonderful friends like you.  If you don't know who the Greeting Farm is you need to come out of your shell and check them out.  hehehe...

Here's a little tidbit about The Greeting Farm in Marie Xiong's words:
"The Greeting Farm is located in Colorado and run by Marie (the illustrator & owner), Ray (owner) & Jessica (TGF Creative coordinator).  TGF started in August 2008 and thanks to all the support of our stampers, is still going strong today. We are most known for our little character Anya but yes we do other images as well. Although I do the artwork, much of my ideas comes from friends and our dear customers. I know that there are companies who predict and start trends but I really feel that our customers know what they want and so I rely on them to direct me."
The Greeting Farm has several red-rubber cling mount stamp collections that include Ian & Anya, Creepy kids, Wild Sprouts, sassy Miss Anyas and an adorable Oliver & Amelia.  They also have several clear polymer stamp sets & digital images that you will enjoy.  The newest lines released are the Beans named after Marie & Ray's daughter, Lily and three sitting sets with 2 new Anyas and a new Ian.   You can find them all in their shop.  Need some inspirations or want to join a challenge?  They've also got two blogs to satisfy your needs.  One for all the showcases and new releases called Splendid Stamping with the Greeting Farm and their Farm Fresh Challenge blog which runs 2 challenges a week and one monthly challenge.  TGF was recently chosen as a Member Company on Splitcoast Stampers and have a big following there as well as a weekly Saturday sketch challenge.  Head on over and become a friend of the farm.  I already am.
Head on over to the Lollipop blog to see the T-Team's creations with images from The Greeting Farm.   We also have a special guest DT Farmer, Veronica showcasing her adorable card featuring Shimmer Bean.  She played along with our A-Team and came up with this wonderful white with a splash of color card:

Created by TGF DTM, Veronica

Although I could have used one of the newest images, I wanted to share my card I made using Simply Anya.  Back in the beginning of February, Sammi sent out an email for submissions for her Copicendium #3 magazine.  She was looking for birthday or summer fun themed cards.  I was a bit hesitant, but hey, what did I have to lose?  So I took a chance, submitted two cards and she wanted to use both!  I was over the moon!  Today I'm sharing the one using Simply Anya.  Hope you all like it.

Yes there is a sentiment in the corner of the doily, it says, "You're so special."

Alrighty friends, I hope you have a chance to play in our white with a splash of color challenge because the winner will get a choice of a 4x6 stamp set.  So what are you waiting for?!

Mahalo for stopping by!!  Have a great day!!
