HAPPY 2ND BIRTHDAY!!!!!


I made this card to celebrate their 2nd birthday. I participated in the last year and it was alot of fun. I decided to use Wendy stamp and I paper peiced the dress and hair ribbon. I have also added faux stitching. The Papers are from Stampin' Up! Vintage Vogue. I used copics to colour her in and if you look closely I have added things to the book to celebrate The Greeting Farm's birthday.

Can you see Marie???


Just so you don't think I'm a stalker or anything, this was the photo given on the blog after several TGF fans wanted to know what Marie looked like. Like most people I was surprised at how young she was. I can't believe I've been buying and playing with TGF stamps now for under two years, WOW.
Congrats on your success and I hope to be buying more TGF stamps in the future.


Please head back to the main blog list to find out who is next.
I will be part of the Blog Hop and at the end will give my TOP Five blogs/cards, maybe it will be yours.
Enjoy yourselves, thank you for looking
Amanda
