Farm Fresh Friday--"Old School"!

"TGF is goin' OLD SCHOOL! In honor of Back to School time, we thought we'd do a traditional "Back to School" challenge until Jess and Marie decided, why not go OLD SCHOOL?

So here's the deal.

In order to be considered truly OLD SCHOOL, it's easier to limit the stamps to what you cannot use vs. what you can: You CANNOT use:

*Wild Sprouts
*Cheeky Cherry collection
*Oliver/Amelia Stamps
*Creepers or Creepy Cakes
*Any Anya AFTER the release of WILD WEST ANYA (Spring/Summer 09)
*Any Ian AFTER the releases of SKATER IAN (Spring 09)
*Miss Anyas/My Guy Ians
*Any Critter Crew images
*Grandparents/Darling Sisters

If you have specific questions, you can email Jessica at Just think OLD SCHOOL. Older the better :)

Speaking of old is this Angel Anya? This was one of the first Anyas I ever bought. Came in handy though since I was asked to make a card for someone who loves angels. I was going to color her using my "old school" colored pencils, but since it was for a third-party I wanted it to look more professional. I paper pieced her dress and bow and I was able to use up some of my "old" Daydream dp too! I fact, that was the last of it!! YAY! I love the look of the ruffled ribbon and the pretty pin too.

This contest will be opened for a few weeks. The winner of this contest will be crowned OLD SCHOOL CHAMP and receive the ENTIRE October release along with an old, smelly pair of Converse All-Stars aka Chuck Taylors!! (ok, KIDDING on the latter prize!)

A runner up will ALSO win a 4x6 set of their choice! This will be a random contest, but hey, why not a runner up too? :)

The contest winner will be announced on Monday, September September 27th during our first October Preview post. That's a lot of time, so get busy and get OLD SCHOOL! You have until Sunday, Sept 26th at 8pm CST to enter your card.

Head on over to the TGF blog for more details and inspirations!
