On the 8th Day of Sketches, TGF Gave to Me...A PREVIEW...HUGE NEWS...AND a SKETCH!?!

That's right!  You heard me!

A PREVIEW...actually TWO.


AND Sketch #8.    My head is spinning...I honestly don't know where to begin!!!!!!!

Ok, so let's begin with the NEWS.   LOVE NEWS!  Especially when it makes me smile tremendously.   Some of you may have noticed that we didn't have a Gardener call for January.  While I HATE to see our Gardeners go (we'll bid them an official farewell here on the 31st, so stay tuned), there is a time for everything as we know.

Well, Marie and I talked about it and with all the talent we've seen with this DT, it's just too hard to get rid of without further adieu, I'd like to announce that with the Gardener DT discontinuing, we here at TGF are THRILLED to announce the addition of THREE NEW FARMERS!!!!

Please congratulate:


They will be officially on the TGF Roster starting January 1st, 2010 and will be joining in on our PREVIEWS this week too....PREVIEWS you say?!?!?!?

YES!!! I am SO excited today as for the first time EVER, TGF and Club Anya are JOINING FORCES and previewing our new releases together for the HUGE JANUARY RELEASE BASH that's only days away!  This is the first and could be the last time we preview together so make sure you ENJOY the party!

We are SO excited to be previewing FOUR NEW SPROUTS....ALL styled by our very own Team Anya member AMY YOUNG!  WHOO HOO!!!!!!  Congrats Amy! 

Today's little cutie is named Chelsea.   Many of us have used SKETCH 8 today to preview her, so here's the sketch:

In addition, the TGF DT has another sneak peek at a SUPER fun new set called "Talk Loud", a word-art sentiment set that is new, totally fun and something we've never done before at The Greeting Farm!

Here are some WONDERFUL samples from the DT:







I'll be back with another cute sprout design, preview, and SKETCH 9 for tomorrow, but first, I have a few announcements for the week:

*Our HUGE "IN WITH THE NEW at TGF" BASH will begin at 9am CST on Friday, 1/1/2010 and run through 8PM with challenges, prizes, and FUN!  Each challenge winner will receive a new Sprout of their choice, so be here to party with us!  Live overseas?  No problem!  Challenges will be open through SUNDAY, 1/3/10 at 8pm CST.  WINNERS will be announced on the TGF blog and CA blog on Monday, 1/4, along with the winner of the 12 days of Sketches contest.   That winner will win the ENTIRE Jan. release. 

In addition to each individual challenge, ANOTHER prize pack of the ENTIRE Jan. release will go to a random winner who completes ALL of the New Year's Challenges!

*Don't forget that the 12 Days of Sketches are still well underway here too, and everyone is having a great time and there are more fun sketches to be used today!  This contest will also run through Sunday 1/3/10 at 8pm CST to complete them and upload them to the appropriate galleries) will be entered into a drawing to win the ENTIRE TGF JANUARY RELEASE!!!
