Farm Fresh Friday and our B-DAY winners!

Greetings Stamper Friends! I'm back from vacation and so happy to be back. As awesome as Hawaii is, I'm happy to be home and happy to find out that yes I CAN survive for more than a week without internet or a computer! It makes me feel like I can do anything. LOL. Big smiley thanks to the DT and Jessica and Ray for taking care of things whilst I was absent. They were fab! It's been a very exciting few days at The Greeting Farm and Club Anya and we are just gearing up for the big "HAPPY ANYAVERSARY" Blog Hop starting tomorrow at 9am CST! Before we continue on down to our Friday Challenge, I'd like to announce the 3 lucky winners of our Big Birthday Bash Giveaway! Thank you everyone for participating!

And the 3 winners are:
Lisa Hjulberg (Craft's Meow)
Angie (My Boat)
Betty (Simply Scrapping)

Ladies, congrats!!! Please send me an email with your address to claim your prize!!!

Before we get to today's challenge and last week's winner, I want to pass along a few friendly reminders for tomorrow's hop:

Please have your posts up by 9am CST when our hop begins. The official hop list will be posted here and on the Club Anya blog as well. We have over 80 participants, so grab a chair, a snack, and happy hopping!

2.) It is VERY important that your post remains on the top of your blog for that day. Since no direct links will be provided, if you post over your blog hop post it is likely that people may not see it. We want everyone to see your fabulous birthday creations so this is important!

Please stay tuned to the Club Anya blog, our PCP page, and this blog for some surprises throughout the day! All releases will go live for sale at MIDNIGHT tomorrow and the festivities begin at 9am until 9pm, so keep checking as we will be popping in and out throughout the day!

If you miss anything, don't fret, we will post an official prize page on Monday with some highlights from the weekend!

Now it's time for our Farm Fresh Friday!

Last week's challenger winner is:
Tasha blew us away with not one, but THREE cards, but HERE is her winning card:

Well, we'll see you tomorrow for the big day! Thanks for making our first year at TGF a success and we are so glad you'll be joining us for another fun year on the Farm!

Today's question is: Did any of your birthday wishes come true?

I don't really recall any birthday wishes so I'm just going to say I dunno but hopefully some of them did. haha.

Wow! I can't wait for the new stamps to be available as they are just adorable and I have a paycheck burning a hole in my pocket.

As for a birthday wish, I wished for a puppy when I blew out the candles on my 10th birthday. What a wonderful surprise when I got her a week before my 11th birthday.
