...TGF Preview & An Announcement

Please scroll down to the next post see this week's edition of Verve Day Thursday!

It's Preview Day over at the The Greeting Farm Blog, but I have a very special announcement to make before we get started.  I am so excited and proud to announce that I am now a TGF Farmer!  WHOOHOO!  I have enjoyed being a part of the Guest Design Team (Gardeners) in the past, and I've had such fun being a Critter Crew member as well.  And now I can't wait to join the other fantabulous Farmers each week creating samples with all of the wonderful releases...I am on Cloud Nine, people! :)  Special thanks to Jessica and Marie for giving me this opportunity.  I love their images, their company, and their friendship...thanks, ladies!  I also wanted to say goodbye to Cheryl Walker, who will be leaving the team.  She has always been so sweet and gracious, and I am truly going to miss her!  Hugs to you, Cheryl!

Now for the preview!  Today we are showcasing this precious grandparents set called "Grammie and Gramps", which will be released on May 1st.  Marie has totally been outdoing herself with these new characters, and these senior members are no exception!  I stamped the images in Black Ink onto PTI White Cardstock, and colored them with Copic Sketch Markers.  I paired the splendid seniors with some patterned paper from Cosmo Cricket's Early Bird paper pad.  Some stitching, piercing, and a Corduroy Button with Linen Thread completed the card.

Let's see what the other Farmers have created with this sweet set:
