The Greeting Farm's CHA Relay!


When I popped into some of my friend's blogs this morning they had some really cute cards made with this FREE digi image from The Greeting Farm! TGF are offering a series of free stamps for playing along in their relay - if you get a card done and entered within the time frame you get sent the NEXT freebie emailed to you to play with - and so on! You can win up to 6 free stamps!!! Check out all the info and get your Mer Ian HERE. I thought this was such a fun and unique idea I had to give it a go - not sure I'll be able to get them all done though!!!

I've used my curvy cutter and my divine swirls cuttlebug folder to create the waves. I was going to pop them up on dimensionals but felt they would sit too high - so I popped some white waves in between and coated these with Dazzling Diamonds. The DP is from Bo Bunny and all my CS is from Stampin' Up. I computer generated the sentiment and tried to make it look a little wavy too!

I also coated Mer Ian with Glimmer Mist to make him shine - but have discovered it can make the printer ink bleed a little so be warned!!! I had to quickly dry mine off using my heat gun before it got too bad!!!
