Flyin' with the Farm Blog Hop

Welcome to our "Flyin' with the Farm" blog hop!

We are super excited to be debuting four new releases and there are plenty of opportunities to win them, too! If you are just starting out on my blog, be sure to head on over to The Greeting Farm's blog to begin this fun Blog Hop! If you are already in on all the fun, then thanks for coming over from Tori's blog!

We have a ton of fun ways that you can win these stamps, including a word scramble for you! Once you've completed today's hop, you will have all the letters you need to spell out a very important word. Once you know the answer, please email Jessica at yeahshestamps@gmail.com to let her know you've completed the blog hop and one lucky winner will be randomly selected to win Butterfly Wishes, her brand new stamp set with The Greeting Farm!

I paper pieced the pig and gave him layers on pop dots for depth. This cute little piggy makes me think of Wilbur from Charlotte's Web. Since the paper is so busy, I wanted the pig to still stand out a bit.

Paper: Sassafrass
Stamps: the Greeting Farm
Prima Flowers, Basic Grey Buttons, Thread, and PTI Ribbon


My clue for you today is the letter: {T}

In addition, we are thrilled to welcome our four new summer gardeners to The Greeting Farm family! They, too, have some "candy" for you, so be sure to make it all the way to the end of today's event!

I am lucky to be giving out {Edward} today! So please comment here for your chance to win him! The winners will be announced tomorrow on The Greeting Farm blog.

I hope you enjoy today's release party and have a splendid day "Flyin' with the Farm!" Releases are on sale now at The Greeting Farm's website. In addition, be sure to stop by the Club Anya blog today as they have a surprise for you too! There's a new All-star in town and you won't want to miss him!

For now, your next stop is {Kim's blog}. See you there and thanks for being a part of this fun event!
