...TGF October Blog Hop

Happy Thursday! Well, it's October 1st...where in the world did September go? LOL! As I promised, it's time for the October Release for the new stamps sets and digi images by The Greeting Farm. I am so excited to be celebrating this release along with the new Fall Gardeners and the TGF Farmers. We will be welcoming SIX new releases, a new artist, and new design team members.

Thanks for hopping on over from Lynda's blog! If you are starting here, be sure to go back to the TGF Blog to get started with the BLOG HOP! Be sure to check out each and every blog in order through to the end for a chance to win the ENTIRE OCTOBER RELEASE! What's more? To celebrate my becoming a TGF Fall Gardener, I will be giving away the Keep Cozy stamp set to ONE RANDOM COMMENTER. Leave me a comment, and I will choose a lucky winner at 9 p.m. EST. Would you like me to sweeten the pot even more? ALL FOUR of the new Fall Gardeners will be giving away different sets to random commenters...you will not want to skip anyone on this hop!

Now on to the cards! These sweet images were created by the talented freelance artist, Marina Neira. Marina has created a barrel of goodies for all of you, and we'll be offering these babies as digital images. There are plans to rubberize these cuties in the future but for now, there's nothing quite like instant gratification, right...especially when they look like this!

Candy Cane Snack

All of the new October Releases are available NOW at The Greeting Farm Store, and we can't wait to see what you'll create with these goodies. And we are just getting started! There's even more coming your way mid-month at Club Anya, so be sure to keep your eyes open and your credit cards ready! LOL!


That's it for me today! Remember to leave your comment before 9:00 p.m. EST for a chance to win Keep Cozy, but now you need to head to Sandra's Blog to see what she has in store for you! If you get lost along the way in all of this super cuteness, here is the full hop schedule (don't forget that one lucky commenter will win the entire October release...so be sure to comment at each blog!):

Enjoy this Farm Fresh Release, and I will see you again tomorrow! Until then...
