...TGF Release Day Blog Hop

HELLO, and welcome to The Greeting Farm's February Release and BLOG HOP! We will be running the hop from 12:01 am CST to 9:00 pm CST.

We will have LOTS of prizes hidden along the way today...including the new Chibi digis, Marina digis, and the new "Sweet Tooth" set (also illustrated by Marina Neira)! All you have to do is ENJOY the hop, leave a comment along the way on each DT members' blog to enter into all the "secret" contests. Be sure to tune into the TGF Blog tomorrow to find out WHO won! Make sure you leave a comment on the TGF blog too, letting us know you've finished the hop because one lucky winner will take home ALL of the above!

The NEW RELEASES are now available in the TGF store. These include the new Anya stamps as well as our fun releases too! LOTS of goodies, so be sure to check out the site! Don't forget to check out the Club Anya & Friends Blog too for another FUN edition of Monday Mania and also another chance to WIN!

We are SO excited about our trip to CHA, and we have a HUGE surprise planned for you during the month of February...and a few other surprises along the way. We hope you'll be excited with the new releases, chances to win, and also ask for your patience with our shipping as we are busy filling CHA orders as well this week. We strive to provide you with the best Customer Service you've always known to be true at TGF and thank you SO, SO much for coming along for this AMAZING ride!

My card today uses one of the images from Marina's new stamp set called "Sweet Tooth". I created the circles with some patterned paper from the Be Loved collection from My Mind's Eye, and I also made the horizontal strips from the same pack. This cute little monkey was watercolored, then cut out using a Nestibilities Die. Each layer is attached to the Kraft Cardstock base using Dimensionals, and the only embellishment added was a flower (punched out with the Flower Trio Punch) with a brad in the center. I also added some circular piercing to the card base to finish off the card.

That's it for me today! Thanks for stopping by, and if you're just getting here to my blog, be sure to start at the TGF Blog for the complete list of the hop! Your next stop is ***SANDRA's*** blog! Have a WONDERFUL day, and until later...
