So holy cow - I cannot believe I actually finished all 24 challenges at The Greeting Farm between the 12 Days of Xmas and the 12 hourly New Year's Day challenges!!! Here are my final 2 cards for the New Year's Day challenges - and they are 2 of my faves!

This one is for Lisa's Bring on the Color challenge, which was to use the colors gray, green, cream, and pink. I stamped Lolli Anya on cream (Very Vanilla) cardstock, as well as the "giggle" sentiment. I used Pretty in Pink, Certainly Celery, Gray, and Designer Series papers, Pretty in Pink & Certainly Celery grosgrain ribbon, and pink gemstone brads:

And my big finale was to use Red Riding Hood Anya from the Signature set for the very first time! This card is for Cheryl's Flowers, Ribbons, and Bows challenge. The challenge was to use ribbons and bows in a cute way - and/or to add some flowers, anything to girly it up:
I had a blast making this card, I found some old red and white checked background papers that went PERFECTLY with the look I was trying to go for. Then I found the adorable matching red & white checked brad and instantly knew it would make a perfect accent/anchor for my white flower. I used Real Red as my base, and Basic Black for the circle. I also used some red ribbon to make ribbon tags and attached them with clear-diamond-gemstone brads. I added the black ribbon as the finishing touch.

I hope you have enjoyed following along with me as I completed the challenges. Don't forget to come back tomorrow as I share an exciting announcement with you all and give you a chance to win one of the adorable Greeting Farm digi images. You must be a follower of my blog to win, though, so be sure to click "Follow" so you don't forget! I'll remind you tomorrow, too. :) Have a great night - it's back to work for me tomorrow, which is a bit depressing. I wish I could stay home, make cards, and blog all day, every day. I would never get tired of it!!! But alas, I would not be able to afford my hobby/craft/passion/addiction if not for the J-O-B thing. So I guess I'll suck it up and go back! hee hee See you tomorrow - peace!

  2. You rock! I have enjoyed seeing each of the challenges Jenn but that last card with Red Riding hood and the gingham daisy is my favorite of all of them! How did you cover the center of the daisy and I love the three loops of ribbon with the holes punches! Way too cute!!
