TGF Release Day Blog Hop!!

Thursday, October 1, 2009

Welcome! Welcome!

I'm sooo excited to be a part of the October release! To mark the release, we're celebrating with a blog hop today to welcome 6....count 'em, SIX new releases, a brand spanking new designer and the new Fall Gardeners! One of them being me! *grin* Are you enjoying the hop so far!?!

Thanks for popping over from Mercy Kerin's blog. If you just stumbled upon this post and would like to play along on the hop, head over to the The Greeting Farm blog to get started and make sure you make it all the way through to the end...ONE lucky winner will walk away with the ENTIRE OCT RELEASE! And that's not the only giveaway - every Fall Gardener is giving away a single image from the new releases!! So don't forget to leave a comment today!

I have two cards to show you today using the Keep Cosy set and the new Merry Merry holiday paper! Aren't these snowmen the cutest?! I love how this one is all rugged up - a bit like me when winter hits! :) I used this week's Mojo Sketch Challenge (MOJO106) for the layout, some Bazzil Bling paper and two of the coordinating designer papers from the new Merry Merry paper stack. I added some glitter to the snowman's belly and the snow around him for some added sparkle. I love glitter!!

This second card uses a few more sheets from the Merry Merry paper stack. The colors are bold, but they work really well together. Marie did a bang up job of designing them!! Both cards also fit this week's Spoon Full of Sugar challenge #71 which was to create a Christmas card. Easy peesy with these cuties!

ALL the new October releases are available NOW over at The Greeting Farm and we can't WAIT to see what you'll create with all these new goodies. And we are JUST getting started! We have even MORE coming your way mid-Month at Club Anya and lots more surprises in store! Can't wait to see what the new Club Anya DT does with thier new releases!!

Thanks so much for stopping by, now pop over to Jessica's blog next to see what she has in store for you! If you get lost along the way in ALL the cuteness, here is the full Hop schedule:
