It's a very exciting Friday here on the Farm. Not only is it time for Farm Fresh Friday, but we have some fantastic previews today for you! Club Anya is starting previews today as well for the Anya release on the 15th, and we have a very special preview today for you here, too.

As you know, there are many new changes going on at the farm. Up until now I have been the main designer of the TGF stamps but over the next few months, The Greeting Farm will be working with a few new artists to expand our collection of stamps and be able to offer you guys even MORE of what you want. This is a very big step for us and so I hope you receive it with enthusiasm as I have.

Today, I'd like to introduce you to one of those artists... Janet McDonnell. Janet does a lot of illustrations and when I saw her stuff I just knew that she would make wonderful teen-inspired images for you!!! I know that TGF do not have many teen images if any and so I am over thrilled to show you these!!! These will be available Sept 15th in the store.

DottyJo said...

Poached eggs on wholemeal toast for me! Sweet new stamps, love that teen dream guy and the little girl in the cute sneakers, Jo x

Tasha said...

I like scrambled egg the best, really slowly cooked so its silky and golden. I like the cards, cant say these digis are my style i like the usual TGF range. But goodluck with them. Love tasha x x

Renee G said...

I like my eggs with italian sausage and onion and greenpepper scrambled! OH Yea!
Cute cards, cute new stamps.

JulyeB said...

Hi just found your blog , the teenage stamps look brill as teenages are often hard to design cards for. I might even have a go at designing a sprout after a bit more investigation of what sprouts there already are ,thats the next job.
I'm not really an egg fan but I prefer well cooked poached eggs when I do have them with vinegar in the poaching liquor.
Off to investigate sprouts now
thanks Julye

Cheryl said...

The new stamps are cute .and congrats to Jess , stunning card .
And I like my eggs cooked lol..hardboiled or fried ......just as long as there is no runny yellow stuff.

Jean Peters said...

Oh wow I love the new range and the guy with the guitar is just fab - or as my boys would say "solid". Eggs - I love a cheese omelette....but scrambled or fried will do me when I am in a hurry xx

Marley said...

Love scrambled eggs! The new digi's are great! xx Marley

Caroljenks said...

Gorgeous new Digis! The DT cards are fab!

I prefer my eggs the Cadbury Creme varitey!

MicheyMoo said...

I'm a poached egg with avocado kinda gal. Though I don't mind scrambled if they are done right.

I love the new digi's but I think I might be sticking with Anya for now.....my teenage nieces think she's cool - so you are doing alright from my neck of the woods. :)

Love the farm card too, what a cute little idea to have them working so hard inside the barn.

The DTs did an awesome job - Kadie's card made me giggle, I love that she's back farming!
Such a pretty gallery today.

Scrambled eggs for me too! With ketchup. lol! Happy Friday, I'm headed to the Club...

Carrie said...

I love these new digitals. They are so cute. I know I'm definitely going to need them especially the guitar because my son just got one. And one has my name!! I love the barn card that is amazing!! As for question I don't like eggs. I ate them so much as a child that I can barely stand the smell.

Molly Joly said...

Love the new digital images!

I like omelettes - does that count? :>

Risa said...

Wow...the new teen images are awesome!
I prefer my eggs scrambled.
hugs
Risa:)

buggin2stamp said...

I think the new teen images are fabulous. I do hope you plan to offer them in rubber at some point. I don't care for digital images. I like actual stamps and would definately consider purchasing some of these images if they were sold that way.

Eggs: Scrambled in a mug, fried omelet style with salt, pepper & Swiss cheese. If I am more ambitous, I saute grape tomoates in olive oil, then add some balsamic vineger and saute a little longer. Throw them in an omelet with some cheese and yummo!!

Stephanie said...

Super cool new images!

I love eggs benedict or just plain old scrambled!

Krista said...

Scrambled with lots of pepper and ketchup! Love the new teen digis!

kim-paperbabe said...

Wonderful new range, great for teenagers.

Mmmm I like eggs in so many ways definitely depends on my mood. I use them mostly for baking though.
HuGs Kim :)

Can't wait to see the new Anya previews!

Congrats on adding a new artist -- lovely teen images that I'm sure many TGF stampers will find useful!

I eat eggs only one way -- deviled. And since they're tedious to make, I don't have them very often!

Jenny said...

Love the Inside Out card is fabulous!! I like my eyes fried or scrambled. :)
Jenny

JessicaRabbit said...

MommaJess said...

Wow Jess did an awesome job on the inside out card. I LOVE IT.

As for my eggs, I like them over medium, I call them dip eggs because the yolk is still runny enough to dip your bacon or sausage in it.

Melissa Craig said...

I like my eggs scrambled and then served over fried potatoes and smothered in green chili and served with homemade warm tortillas. Man I miss my Grandma!!

I love the greeting farm more and more with each new post of yours. The digi's are super cute and remind me of my students.

For me, I am not much of an egg fan, but if I do crave them I do scramble with cheese on top, preferably American and Swiss!

Happy Weekend everyone!

Carol said...

I don't like eggs so much...I do love deviled eggs though :)

I like the new digi's and how the DT used them!

I like my eggs boiled, but not overcooked. It has to be a soft yellow spot in the middle. But not too soft, as I like my eggs on top of my toast. Great sketch, hope I get the time this week to enter:-)

Hugs from Hilde/Paperaddict

jo said...

The new images are so cute! :) Exciting to have a new designer at the Farm!

I love scrambled eggs or hard boiled. Not a fan of over easy or sunny side up. Too raw. Blech.

I just had scrambled eggs for breakfast this morning, actually! I like them hard boiled better, though. New digis are cute.

shaz said...

I like my eggs when my husband cooks them... hehehehe.
