…Hoppin’ Into The Holidays Blog Hop

PLEASE SCROLL DOWN TO SEE TODAY’S TUESDAY SKETCH CHALLENGE

Hello, EVERYONE!  There is excitement in the chilly air tonight as the TIME. HAS. COME...to HOP into the HOLIDAYS with The Greeting Farm!  Hooray!  We have been looking forward to doing an all-customer invited Blog Hop for QUITE some time now and are thrilled that tonight's the night.

If you are just getting here, be sure to start on the TGF Blog where there will be ONE official list of hoppers due to the volume of tonight's hop.   Be sure to pop in between 7 and 8 pm CST on our PCP page to chat w/ the DT, drink virtual egg nog, and be MERRY with TGF!

Well, as you can see, we have QUITE a surprise for you this evening.  You thought previews were OVER, didn't you?  NOPE!  We are ringing in tonight's holiday hop and DECEMBER release with one more VERY cheeky character...INTRODUCING:

CHEEKY CHERRY PIE!!!

card_1532

Isn't she DREAMY?   I stamped her in Black Ink and colored her with Copic Sketch Markers,  I stamped the sentiment in Black Ink also onto a scrap piece of Melon Cardstock, then later punched it out and sponged around the edges of the circle with a Sponge Dauber and Chocolate Ink.  I cut out the sentiment panel with a Nesties die, then I dry embossed the top half of the Melon Cardstock base with large dots.  I sponged the edges of October Afternoon’s Modern Homemaker patterned papers, then stitched the larger panel while adding piercing to the smaller one.  After adding some Black Saddle-Stitched Ribbon, Black Pearls, and several Dimensionals the card was complete.

That's right…in case you were wondering why we were STARTING with the DT tonight when most hops have ended with us!  THIS is why!   You won't want to miss her as we KNOW she's gonna go FAST, so be sure to grab her any time after MIDNIGHT (CST) TONIGHT when ALL the December TGF releases go live and for sale!

If you are participating in one of our contests tonight (see THIS post for categories), the THREE categories will be live and posted in the TGF Galleria at 7pm CST tonight.  Please place your card in the appropriate category in the galleria NO LATER than 11:45pm CST this evening.   Winners will be drawn tomorrow around NOON CST and posted on the TGF Blog

In addition, the TWO lucky Blog Hop winners (must have left comments and completed blog hop by NOON CST (This gives our overseas friends as well as here in the states plenty of time to see the projects and comment :) will be announced at NOON CST as well on the TGF Blog.  GOOD LUCK to everyone and GET HOPPIN'!

Thanks so much for stopping by and for HOPPIN' into the HOLIDAYS with The Greeting Farm!  I’ll see you back here tomorrow with another ATS Wednesday Challenge!  Until then…
