a Splendid blog hop

Good morning! It's time for the Greeting Farm's annual customer blog hop! YAY!! :D I hope that you are enjoying the hop and the wonderful creations from all the wonderful crafters participating! If you have not come here as part of the hop make sure you check it out here!

I have a couple of projects to share with you today using some wonderful TGF stamps!! :D First up is the advent calendar I made... I had this ornament display stand and I "altered" it to be an advent calendar ... I used Angel Anya to sit at the top :)

You can't read it properly but I have used the following verse on my advent calendar....



For to us
a child is born
to us a son is given; and the government shall
be upon his shoulder and his name shall be called
Wonderful Counselor,
Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.

(Isaiah 9:6 ESV)


Now... I thought I would show you a close up on Angel Anya....



My second holiday project is a candle.. I have coloured up this beautiful Holiday Anya on tissue and then set them to the candle... I also coloured some seambinding red to match...



I am also sharing another TGF project .. this is a Birthday card that I made for my Mum's birthday yesterday... I used the Tea-riffic clear stamps set to create this card :)


Thanks for stopping by ... head on over to The Greeting Farm blog for the full list of hoppers and to see where you are going next :)

Oooh and there are PRIZES.... in addition to the two Grand Prizes that will be drawn for the participant's creations, a random hopper will ALSO win the ENTIRE upcoming January Release! That's 6 sets in all- a HUGE prize...and the only way to win is by participating in the blog hop!
