I am finally able to share the news (and it has been killing me to wait) that I was asked to be a Farmer for THE GREETING FARM! I can't tell you how appreciative and excited I am about this opportunity. THANK YOU MARIE AND JESSICA!!! I am sure you all know how much I loved being a Summer Gardener and how creatively inspirational I find this amazing line of stamps.

So, without further ado, here is a preview of one of the adorable upcoming November 1st releases at TGF.

Obviously, another "give in person card" considering the dimensions, but I thought if I put it in a little hat box (which I didn't have time to make yet) it would be a really fun card for someone special.

The top portion is connected to the bottom with a brad and swivels to reveal the image.

That sweet little girl is one of the new Twinkle Tots line at THE GREETING FARM. Isn't she darling?

I took pictures as I was making the hat and if anyone is interested just let me know and I will post it this weekend. I added a new feature to my blog that lets you ask questions and I can answer quickly. It seems pretty cool, don't you just love technology? Wish I were smart enough to be a computer geek!

Here is the best part of today's post - TGF is holding some super fun contests to celebrate the new releases and there are not one...but THREE contests BEGINNING TODAY in the TGF Galleria!
***CALLING ALL KIDS: "THIS TOT'S GOT....*** contest!!!
