Because of YOU!

Hey Farm Friends!
As you can tell by now, there are some SUPER exciting happenings on the Farm this week! First of all, as you may have seen on Friday, we are thrilled to welcome NAOUAL du MORTIER as our December Guest for The Greeting Farm, and are also giddy with excitement to welcome SHERI GILSON to Team Anya as our Guest for the Month of December! These lovely ladies have jumped right into previews and we're thrilled to have them along for the ride!
Before we get started I just wanted to say Farewell to our lovely November Guest Carisa! You have been such a fun guest this month.
It's been a while since we've had a sentiment-only set here on the Farm, and after MANY requests by all of you out there in blog-land, we are previewing a BRAND NEW SENTIMENT set today, "Because of You". This whimsical and fun-fonted set comes complete with that feeling of warm-fuzzies.
To show you just how adorable these new sentiments are, we've decided to show you some preview projects today using ONLY a sentiment as the focal point. Be sure to check out the TGF Blog AND the Club Anya & Friends blog as well for some GREAT ideas and heartfelt hugs :) We are casing Alice Wertz this week, you can see the card we are casing here!
For my first card which is casing Alice I have used Amelia from the new Fuzzy Wuzzy O/A set {available Dec 1st} and I have used the sentiment "you Twinkle more than stars" which I think goes perfect with her dont you?!?!
For my next card, I wanted to do a sentiment only card and used the Sentiment...which I think is my fav in the set..."you're the Rainbow after the storm" I have been having fun creating backgrounds with my distress inks and decided to create a beautiful rainbow colours for this sentiment card! I then spritzed it ALL over with Vanilla smooch spritz which u can see in my close up pic.
 Thanks for stopping by today, and oh...there's ONE more little thing. ONE of the DT members (is it a Farmer? Guest Designer? Team Anya member? hmmmm....) has a "Because of You" set hidden on their blog today! Be sure to stop by and see their beautiful projects and ONE lucky winner will be announced tomorrow during our "HOPPIN' into the HOLIDAYS" Blog Hop, beginning at 7pm CST on the TGF Blog!
Kristy Young {your here} 
Sheri Gilson Dec Guest
"Sentimentally" yours,

Just Because!

{{{Please scroll down for my TPS christmas Blog hop card}}}
I have been so busy with previews lately that lastnight I wanted to make a card just because and enter some challenges. I just recently ordered some WOJ stamps from 7 kids college fund and have been dying to play with them.
I have used the GORGEOUS Melinda I think she is from the Guardian angel range of WOJ stamps. I have used this fabulous sketch below from the WOJ challenge blog and the challenge over at 7 kids colllege fund challenge blog is to use no traditional xmas colours.

I used last years Kaiserkraft xmas papers, I love that they are non traditonal colours and oh so pretty! The sentiment is from Tickled Pink Stamps I actually cut just the merry part out its normally says merry christmas. I used my distress inks to colour Melinda, and sprayed the whole card with Vanilla smooch shimmer.
Hope your all having a great weekend xx

Tickled Pink Christmas Preview blog hop

{{{Please scroll down for my O/A TGF preview}}}
