SWEET MESSAGE Blog Hop and December Release!...

Hello and WELCOME to our Sweet Message BLOG HOP!   We are so excited that today is the day!  The Greeting Farm is releasing SIX new rubber stamps and/or stamp sets and TEN new digis!  This is a HUGE release, just in time for the holidays, and there are some prizes along the way so be sure to cover your bases and visit everyone's blogs today!

We are extra excited to have our December Guest Designer, Gabby helping kick off our Blog Hop and are so happy to have her with us for the month of December!   That's just one of a few exciting things going on at TGF during the month of December...you will be SO glad you're a friend of the Farm!  Here's a little bit about our FABULOUS Guest Designer, Gabby:
 
*Hey! I'm Gabby and I am totally stoked to be on The Greeting Farm's Design Team for December. I'm so excited to be working along amazing talent on the farm...I can say I'm star struck!

I'm 32 married for almost 12 years now to a wonderful man who is very understanding of my love for crafting and we have 3 amazingly gorgeous children...all who have a tint of craftiness in their own little hand thanks to me. *smile* I live in beautiful sunny Southern California near Long Beach but I'm one of those non-tanless oddities. I'm a SAHM and very proud of it.

I've been interested in the arts since I was a little girl...but just a few years back found my true love...rubber stamping! My love of stamping is beyond my love for any other craft. I find it amazing how one simple pounce of ink to stamp can create such a wonderful little canvas to work your magic...along with your magic wands in hand which I call Prismacolor markers and Copics! I also have a nasty obsession with ribbon, buttons, & bling...but don't tell my husband..shhhh...he's already seen enough. Not to bore you with too much blah blah which I'm probably notorious for being known for...lol...I'll leave it here at that with a...THANK YOU Marie, Jessica, & team for giving me this opportunity and I hope you ALL enjoy my work with my time at The Farm! Now get to cultivating!*

:

Now...prizes.....Did someone say PRIZES???   Well, to help celebrate the TWO NEW SETS by Marina Neira that TGF is releasing today,  GABBY will be giving away BOTH sets by Marina to ONE LUCKY commenter on her blog!   She is the first stop on the hop and we can't WAIT to get started!

In addition, you won't want to forget to COMPLETE the hop, then stop on back at The Greeting Farm's blog and LEAVE A COMMENT letting us know you've completed it....because ONE RANDOM WINNER will receive the ENTIRE December RELEASE!!!!  That's SIXTEEN releases in total.... 4 singles, 2 sets, and 10 digis....and let me tell you, you do NOT want to miss out on the chance to win!!!  This contest will remain open until 11:59 PM CST tonight.  Winners will be announced tomorrow afternoon!

So let's begin today's Sweet Message Blog Hop....Here are your Hop Stops:

Gabby
Jessica
Cheryl
Cindy
Kadie
Kim
Mercy
Lisa
Lynda
Sandra
TGF BLOG


Now go....get hoppin', leave your comments-we want your feedback!...and most of all, HAVE FUN.

But wait, there's one more teeny weeny thing before you go...we have a present for ALL of you today from Marina.   Since she has been so well received by you, our friends of the Farm, she wanted to share something with you:

"I am very grateful to the DT for their hard work, to those who purchase the stamps for supporting TGFand myself, and to everyone for the warm welcome I received when I became a part of the Farm."

As a token of her appreciation, Marina is giving ALL of us a FREE DIGI today.  Without further adieu, here is Toby New Year:


Isn't he the CUTEST?   Well, we thank you, too Marina-LOVE your designs!

Please email Jessica at yeahshestamps at gmail dot com if you have any download issues.   For now...

Have fun and GOOD LUCK!   And don't forget, the releases are ALL available now in the TGF Store!  Have a great day and happy shopping!

Thanks for the hop! I wasn't able to leave comments on all of the stops because my nasty employer has somehow prevented the use of some Blogger features :-) Maybe to let me know I really should be working and not hopping. Lol.

Fran said...

WOW, so many beautiful creations! I love Marinas stamps, I just wish they could all be made into rubber, I don't seem to have any luck with digis and i love the xmas critters, I will just have to try a few things with this adorable digi and see how i go. I think my printer ink is just dodgy :)
