This Week's Digi Giveaway

Hey friends! I hope you all had a fabulous weekend! Also don't forget to vote your your top 3 Battle entries! And also there were a few entries whose pictures did not show up eventhough the thumbnails are there, we did put a link under those photos if you want to see the bigger size. There are a lot of gorgeous scrapbook layouts to choose from! I know many of you have said, you don't scrapbook much but I was pleasantly surprised to see so many fabulous ones! If this was your first scrapbook page, kudos to you!

I think I will be asking around for competent forum/gallery engines as our galleria is driving me nuts! I do thank all of you so much for being patient. Maybe I should change our name to TCF - Tech Challenged Farm.

Also thank you for all your support in regards to the website. It's been a long time in the making and once we finishing uploading whatever's left and fixing the existing bleeps, I think it will be super great! Also a few of you are wondering about why the Paypal option isn't at checkout anymore, it's because of my human error. I forgot how I had integrated it and now I have to find out again. But as soon as I do, it will be available again. 

Onwards to this week's digi giveaway! Several of you have suggested a manly sort of Ian doing manly things. And what is more manlier than being handy around the house! I present to you, our long awaited Handy Ian. Handy Ian is your man to call to fix that crack in the wall or that leaky basement that your DH has long neglected. No job is too big for Handy Ian. With his trusty tool belt, complete with hammer, and nifty construction boots, he is also easy on the eyes. Heehee. But hands off this cutie, because Anya will fly at you like a cat... like a cat to a scratchy pole? Something. lol.
Handy Ian


Ok so I'll leave you guys with this little eye candy. Remember to comment this week for a chance to get him. And if you don't get him, it's ok, I'll put him in the shop later next week too! Have a great day! We will be tackling at killing bugs on the website today so if anything weird happens, you'll know why. K, be creative today! Love yas!

Also this is off tangent but if anyone's a fan of the book 'Outlander' and you have the 'Ian Laddie' stamp, please email me TODAY at thegreetingfarm@gmail.com

Today's question is: Make up an original tongue-twister. 
I will choose a winner and give them a special Anya digi.

Can you say this 10 times fast? Wily Willy Wonka Winked Wildly While Whistling.
