The Greeting Farm September 2014 Release Day: Merry Christmas Blog Hop!


Hello Friends!

Today is September 1st and the adorable holiday  NEW RELEASES are now available in the TGF Store!!!

We welcome Holiday Anya 4, Dollie with Gifts and Winter Greetings/Winter Kindness into the TGF collection and we are so excited to celebrate with you all!

Here is my final September 2014 Release Day card...


Since the Holiday Anya collection is one of my favorites of all time and I just love Holiday Anya 4, I couldn't resist creating another fun Christmas card with her as the star! :)  I challenged myself to again use non-traditional colors since I know I'll be making a ton of traditional cards using this sweet gal when the holidays comes around!  I also love royal blue, red and white together and decided to color her up with my copics in those colors.  I think Anya came out pretty cute and I had fun adding lots of my Wink of Stella in glitter clear to her clothes and glossy accents to the ornaments and star on the tree.   I did some embossing on the card base and then decided to also add some Christmas papers.   I found some royal blue ribbon and matching sequins in my stash at home to finish off my card.  I hope you all like it! :) 

Before we begin today's hop, we have a few special announcements.  We are welcoming ROSEMARY BRIDGES as our DT Coordinator and JONI WILSON as our Guest DT Coordinator/Special Project leader and we are so thrilled!  Jessica will still remain on the farm in some other capacities, but in her own words, she couldn't be more excited about these special ladies.  They have wonderful energy and will do an amazing job in their duties and are also two of the most talented crafters as well!   I'm so excited to work with Rosemary and Joni as well since I've always been a big fan of both of them and their gorgeous TGF creations!   There's more on the blog from Jess about these new changes, but for now... let's get hoppin'!

One lucky winner who visits all of the DT's blogs, comments, and comments on the TGF Blog that they "hopped" along will take home the ENTIRE SEPTEMBER RELEASE!  Wowzers, that's soooooo awesome, right?!!!
Let's kick things off right!  Here we go…
