Monday Card Critique

Greetings Stamperistas! We had a few techie problems over the weekend. First it was the shop and then it was the gallery. We managed to fixed the shop but in the gallery, a few card images were corrupted during the restoration. Because of this (and I really apologize) I would have to ask that those of you who have the 'No Thumbnail' image in your gallery, please re-upload. This is an inconvenience and I really do regret. This was totally my fault because I was trying to upgrade the system and then it crashed and then we had to restore it and in the process, some parts of the gallery photos was lost. To reupload, you would just have to login and click on that picture 'No Thumbnail' and replace it with another one so you can still keep old comments and etc. Again very sorry.

In another sad news, our beloved DT member Elena will be leaving the farm. Today is her last day. Elena has been with us for awhile and has done just beautiful beautiful work so I am trying to support her decision although I will miss her dearly. She has always been super supportive of TGF from the beginning and I think that her well wishes is one of the things that has blessed TGF. Please drop by her blog and leave her a thank you message for being such a big part of The Greeting Farm.

Let's see what else was I suppose to announce today. OH! New releases are tomorrow!!! yayyy! Also will be announcing some new DT members as well. Is it tomorrow? I'm sorry I am so scatter-brained right now. One of my goals is to go to bed earlier. Ha. The design dept at TGF has been working overtime and so although we have a billion new things that will be revealed in the upcoming months, it does drive my mind a bit crazy. haha.

Come back tomorrow!!!

Fridays's ASADG winner is:
