serving sweet friendship

I’m back for a combined Blog Swap Hop today featuring two fantastic companies, The Greeting Farm (who I am guest designing for this month! YAY!) and The Twinery!   If you’re just getting here from Emily Leiphart‘s blog, WELCOME!  If you have yet to begin the hop, please visit the TWINERY BLOG to begin!

We are excited to bring you a fun hop, loads of inspiration as the world of TGF rubber stamps collides with the quality baker’s twine we’ve all come to know and love.  Our teams are busy today with new and fun projects to share and definitely a few prizes!

For my project today, I chose the Tea-rrific set from The Greeting Farm. Love the fun tea cups image and sweet sentiments in this set! The stacked tea cups are all one image, so I inked it up 3 times and then cut the teacups apart to re-stack. They are matted on a MFT’s Open Scallop Doily (the large one from the duo set) die. I set mine off with some pretty orange twine from The Twinery. Just because I’m all about extra fun, I’m sharing this project as part of Judy’s  Treat Yourself challenge at Splitcoast for Hope You Can Cling To!

Now…I DID mention something about PRIZES, didn’t I? 😉 There are TWO prize packs up for grabs and you will have until Sunday, October 23rd at 5pm CST to comment on ALL the blogs in this hop and enter for your chance to win one of them!

The Greeting Farm is giving away their ENTIRE November release EARLY to one lucky winner- that is four stamps in all and EARLY nonetheless!

The Twinery is giving away one “COLORFUL BUNCH” sampler pack!

That’s TWO great prizes, TWO chances to win…and endless inspiration beginning here, on The TWINERY Blog.

Your next stop on the hop is with the talented Caroline Stender.

Thanks for sharing the fun with us. Have a great weekend, and good luck!
