Top Crop Tuesday

Greetings!!! We've a couple of things coming up later this week that I can't really reveal yet. But I just wanted you to know that. haha. Sorry I just have to create anticipation. Oh also Farmers Market is coming up on THURSDAY. We will be switching the location to the new store though since I know some people like to purchase regular items in addition to their FM purchases. If you forget, I will put a link reminder here on Thursday so don't worry.


Yesterday's ASADG winner is:
nancy
http://nancyskortblogg.blogspot.com/

Email me with your stamp choice and address to claim your prize!


Another stamper whose work always catches my eye when go I go hiking in the gallery is Anna Maria's. Her works is always such a delightful arrangement of trinkets and a whirlwind of yummy papers. Looking below you can understand why she's this week's top pick.

TOP CROP: Rimna
http://www.rimna.blogspot.com/









Today's question is: Who do you think has the most creative/clever blog name?

I really love the blog name: the Craft's Meow. Clever clever clever! Runner up would be Lady Guinevere something something.... longest name in the history of blog names. So long that I can't even remember what is really is. So long that I can't even find it in google.

Ha ha! Thought I'd be the first to post, but it took me sooo long to type it out, that I wasn't and had to delete it! Oops! Guess "Island Girl" had a few hours on this West Coast girl. ;)

Loving the Top Crop choice! Beautiful detail.

Haven't really come across a blog name that makes me giggle, but there have been a lot of witty bloggers that do the job!

I've always adored her cards! So glad you're showcasing them. ;)

I'm an accountant and recently thought I should've named my blog "The Creative Accountant". Ha!

Gorgeous Top Crop cards :)

Blog names???? Well, reading through the posts here so far I really wish I'd come up with *Insert Creative Witty Blog Name Here*. That is FAB!!!
I don't really have any that stick in my mind - although I will be taking more notice of them from now on!

Adrina said...

Wow, what a lovely cards.
So beautiful.

I like the blog name: Enjoying the Journey.

Melissa Craig said...

I like to blog names. Confessions of a Stamper and A Walk on the Mild Side-Craft and Design. Now that's long, but it's Tami Mayberry who is so uber talented.

L.Nielsen (Lynda) said...

wow.... adorable cards... no wonder you picked those. I have to agree... It IS delightful!

Okay the blog name that I find most interesting has to be "SemSee's Sparkly Scribblings"

Something about it always puts a smile on my face when I read that!

Hugs
Lynda =)

Peggy said...

Great pick this week! Beautiful cards!
A couple of blog names~
SemSee's Sparkly Scribblings~ try saying that real fast!
And
In My Craft Room~ we can all definitely relate to that!!

AShu93 said...

I don't really pay attention to the names either, but I think the Greeting Farm is a great name because it realy does what you say. "We grow smiles & bright days."

Karen said...

Amazing cards! Thanks for the inspiration once again!!! I check your blog daily and I'm always craving for new ideas!!!!

As for the clever blog name, I must admit that The Craft's Meow in on the top of my list too!!!!!

Carrie said...

Beautiful cards! Ooh it's hard to pick a favorite blog name. One of my many favorites would be Fun Paper Candy. :)

Krista said...

Great choice for Top Crop! Love those cards.

montygonza said...

Hi ladies,
I love the cards today.
I do love running with scissors I think that had a real mental imagine straight away.

Sandra MacLean said...

Congratulations Nancy and Congratulations Anna Maria!! Your cards are so whimsical and gorgeous!! I especially love the winter one with the snowflake! A funny blog name I came across was Nuttnhoney.net! :)

Sue said...

Adorable cards! Love them all.

There are a number of blogs that I love their names, but I always get a kick out of "Dancing in Pajamas".

Isabel Z said...

What beautiful cards. I can't think of a blog name that is especially creative now that I've read through other posts-Running with Scissors made me laugh b/c I'm always asking me kids not to do that. The blog name that I can relate to though is "No Time to Stamp" b/c some days I feel like that with 3 kids running around the house:-)

Tracey Cuccia said...

Aw, thanks Joni for mentioning my blog name :) I'm honored -- hee hee...that's what happens when you can't think of anything 'crafty' ;)

Top crop choice is FAB-O and congrats to Nancy!

My favorite blog names... "Mindless Creativity", "Tales form a domestic briefcase", and in reading the responses on this post -- I like 'Chic N Scratch' fabulous!

NormaJean said...

wow what great cards!!! I was blog surfing the other day but silly me forgot to book mark this one kind of cracked me up name was somethinglike "so this is where all my money gone" paper craft addicted...lol thought that was cute and true..lol

Rimna said...

Wow!!!
Thank you for picking me!

Tammy said...

Oh yes...I love her cards too. She is just fantastic!

One of my favorite movies growing up was Pretty in Pink. It's no secret that I love pink so when I can across a blog called "Pretty In Ink" it put a smile on my face!

kat9 said...

Great Top Crop Cards. I can see why they were picked.

I think I have seen some really clever names out there but as old age comes in I can't think of any right now. I do wish mine was more clever.

Jenny said...

Absolutely beautiful cards!!

One of my fav blog names is: Lost in Paper Scraps!! It seems like that really fits me. :)
Jenny

Chris said...

These cards are so beautiful!

I like Jennifer Buck's blog name "The Buck Stamps Here." Great play on her name and famous quote.

Allison said...

Hi, I would have to say one of my faves for just the name would be "Happy thoughts & Inkspots"
...gee now that you made me think about this my blog name seems awfully boring!

Tammy said...

I like the ring of Stamp Owl's Studio. She also has some really neat ideas.

Nicole B said...

can't wait to see what's coming next!!!

Jennifer said...

GREAT cards everyone.

Jamie K said...

Those are beautiful cards. I've gotta say, though it might not seem terribly original but I still think its clever, I like Stamping a Latte. It probably helps too that I think her blog is fantabulous.

JenRaff said...

I like the blog name "Pieces of Me". I think that is so clever.
Running with Scissors sound funny, too.

Stephanie said...

Those are definitely some cute cards; I've got some serious work to do if I'm ever going to be that good! =) My two fave blog names are The Craft's Meow & Midnight Scramper, and Toni Wild's Wild Sprinkles. Congrats Nancy & I hope everyone else has a great day!

Amy said...

I really like Kim's blog name... paper rocks! (scissors are cool too). I love the play off that old school yard game, very clever! :)

Oh such grat cards, I love the rain snow shine one, but Christams already, well I guess it is not that far away.

I like Pöydän kulmalla näpertelijä because I have no idea what it says or means, but I always recognize it.

Lisa M. (aka. Lisabee) said...

Gorgeous cardS!!

I always like to see the different blog names..."Craft's Meow" and "Running with Scissors" are always ones that make me grin. but I also like the blogs the "Rubber Room" and "Scrap Stamps and Be Merry".

Tanya Rudd said...

Such cute cards, wish I were home creating! I like my friend Jenn's blog name. "Confessions of a Scrampaholic"

Have a good day,

Tanya

Claireabelle said...

Wow, fabulous creations!

The best blog name I've come across, it has to be 'aload of crafty bloggoxs' lol

anabellpepper said...

I have fun playing off my married name with my blogs. lol I have Seasoned Sentiments(for my cards), {Pic} a pepper(for my photography), and Peppered with Praise (for bible studies I used to get in my email). I have 3 other blogs, but I haven't played off my name in their titles. My married name is Peppers. lol

There is a set that a friend of mine follows that are all about fertility issues and they have some very clever titles like Sturrup Queens and Life, Liberty, and the pursuit of Pampers and such.

Sprytebyrd said...

Wonderful cards today!!

I love all the creative names and always wonder why I can't come up with something fun and creative like that! Maybe one day... :)

LORi said...

OMGoodness.....These are the most outstanding, over the top creations I have ever seen!!!!! WOW!!!!

Wow, thanks Marie for mentioning my blog name The Craft's Meow!!! I remember having a hard time picking a name because there were sooooo many clever ones out there. I finally was inspired by my cat and my love of cliches!

Some of my faves are Stamp a Little Love Baby!,Lilybean Paperie, and Paper, Scissors and Superheroes.

Gorgeous cards today. I'm always in awe of the amazing talent out there, especially here at The Greeting Farm.
