I {HEART} STAMPS!

Happy Thursday! It's no secret I love stamps and The Greeting Farm is a big reason why. When I saw the new Stamping Anya I knew I had to give her a permanent home on my stamping table but wasn't sure how. Then, I remembered my Grafix Rub-onz and thought I would try putting her on a mug. Ha, it worked! I basically followed the instructions with one major adjustment, I had to stamp the image, scan it, then print the mirror image (so the letters aren't backwards) onto the special Grafix paper. I colored her with a mix of copics and colored pencils/gamsol. It isn't washable so it has to stay on my table as a marker holder but that is a good thing!
You can grab your Stamping Anya too because....
It's TGF RELEASE DAY and there's NO April Fool's joke here when we say that ALL NEW RELEASES are now available in the TGF Store! We hope you've enjoyed our previews this week and are SO excited to welcome Get Well by Marina Neira, Stamping Anya, Eric, Dee Dee, and Oliver/Amelia "Buddies" to the TGF Family of rubber! Today is a GREAT day and we're so happy you're along for the ride!

Today we are also excited and honored to announce the 1st "TGF Cares" Charity Card Drive. This is something that TGF has been wanting to do for a long time and we have finally been able to put together a card drive for a cause very close to our hearts. A few years ago, Jessica was introduced to a family who was only a few weeks away from losing their two-year old daughter, whose name was also Jessica. Through this terrible tragedy, the family couldn't say enough about how wonderful the Ronald McDonald House was to them, specifically the one near the Fairview Children's Hospital near Minneapolis, MN. (please see Jessica's blog for more on this touching story and how TGF customers can help put a smile on the faces of many in need of them!)

There are so many sick children whose families do nothing short of moving mountains for these kids to help them get well. Not only is it important to lift the spirits of these courageous children, but also the families-the parents, siblings, and relatives during all of the emotional ups and downs of a child's fight for life.

TGF is proud and honored to be collecting cards that will go to the RMH in Minneapolis as well as the Fairview Children's Hospital, parents, and siblings of these petite patients during the long and brave journey of theirs. Be sure to stop by the TGF BLOG today for complete details on this special contest close to our hearts.
