TA-TA til 2010!

Greetings beloved stampers! This is my last entry for the year. Jessica will be graciously taking over the blog with her 12 Days of Xmas challenge for the remainder of 2009, giving me a nice little break to handle and prepare for TGF 2010! Winners the digi giveaway will still be announced on Monday, but we will wait to continue our weekly giveaway when I get back.

I hope everyone has a beeeeyouuuuuuutiful holiday. I am so thankful and grateful that you have let TGF be part of your year. A big hug and shout out to Super Jessica and our outrageously talented DTs. And happy thanks and warm wishes to all of you who come on here and make TGF a part of your daily routine. I hope that we have brought many smiles to your creations and I hope that you'll join us in the coming new year. It's going to be a blast with all the cool things we have planned for you! So stay warm, enjoy these following inspirations and I will see you again when we ring in 2010!

Can't wait to see what Jess has in store for us. I love all these happy cards, I know 2010 will be even more fun. Enjoy your first official Christmas as a couple!!
What makes Christmas so merry is that everyone goes out of their way to celebrate each other. Amen to that, wish it was an everyday thing in this world!
hugs and happy New Year!

Awesome projects! Big thanks to you, Marie, for all the fabulous and adorable stamps, the great inspiration on the blog and just all the fun that we can find here at The Greeting Farm!!! It has become my favorite stampy place online!!
What makes my Christmas Merry is celebrating and remembering the real reason that we even have Christmas, that Baby Jesus came to live on earth and be our Saviour!! What a hope that brings to me each year!
I hope you have a Blessed Christmas and all the best in the new year!! :)
