Mercy, Cindy and Kim - THANK YOU FOR BABYSITTING US!!! Lol! You all did an amazing job. And despite any snide comments that may be made here and there, getting the adorable 2 free adorable digis (Mer Ian and Prince Ian) was generous enough for us all!!

Catherine said...

Working full-time, I just wasn't able to do the relay. But I am extremely grateful for the 2 free digis! Thanks so much for your generosity and efforts!

Carrie said...

Thank you so much. He is adorable!! Thanks to all the ladies who helped out while you were away too.

Awww man! :( I was hoping for more free digis.

Though it is sad the CHA Digi Relay had to be ended abruptly, I had a fantastic time while it lasted. Thank you to all of you who volunteered and dealt with the craziness and headaches as things went awry. You all deserve a bonus or a pamper me day just like the "Me Time Anya Set"! Thank you so much for the 4 awesome FREE digi's! I was looking forward to the other 2 because the ones that we already received were so fabulous I was just so excited to see what was coming next. Hopefully we will find out sometime and have a chance to atleast purchase them. Again thank you volunteers for all your wonderful and hard work and thank you Marie for alll the incredible amazing FREE Digi's and thanks to Jessica for all the computer borrowing etc that you had to go through to try to keep things all together. You are all so wonderful. I look forward to hearing all about the CHA when you guy get back. Be safe and drive carefully.
Big Hugs to You All,
Sonya

Joanne Gilch said...

While I am sad that this is the end, I thank you all from the bottom of my heart. If not for TGF I never would have colored a digi. I was an absolute virgin in the digi world until Sunday evening. I learned to use what I have to color and blend and it was amazing fun. You can't believe how much fun I had and the anticipation! Whew! I learned to color and cut, use my computer in ways I thought impossible. Most of all, I learned patience. It was an amazing ride and now it's time to get off and let the others take their turn.
Thank you ALL so much. I am sure it was a difficult decision to end the relay but in the end- All is good!
Gratefully,
joanne/jcreations

Emma said...

HUGE thanks ladies for all your hard work and the freebies. The relay was so much fun but totally understandable why it had to end.
I had so much fun, thanks again.

Monika in VA said...

Oh, Thank You for the cuties! I had fun being challenged to use a particular image each day... I got a cute little baby card made with Toby Cub ~ which I put on my blog ~ rather like how it turned out...

Carisa said...

A HUGE thank you to Mercy, Cindy & Kim for the awesome job they did with this challenge - The response was much greater than I imagined. Heck, you got ME to participate and I had a digi phobia for so long but now I no longer have that phobia and am looking thru the other digi's I missed out on in the past b/c of my fear! LOL Thanks for making me a believer in digis (b/c you've been making so many cute ones) with this amazing and fun challenge. *hugs*

PaperCrafty said...

Mercy, Cindy, & Kim~Thank you so much for being such fabulous babysitters in Marie and Jess' absence!! The relay was so much fun and I would like to thank you for all the images!!

☼ Cheryl* said...

Thank you for a great challenge!
Please please PLEASE show us the other digi's we could of gotten. I may go crazy if I do not know, lol.
Maybe put them in the shop :) I'm sure so many people would buy them.

I am so happy with the digi's we have been given. I struggle with male cards and the Ian's are just what I need! The Toby is so gorgeous, I love how he could be a little baby girl too :p Charlotte is not a stamp I would of ever bought, but to have her is great as now I have a challenge to make her look beautiful and love her :D!

donna mikasa said...

Big hugs and "Mahalo" to Mercy, Cindy, and Kim for all you did during the relay. Keeping track of everyone's posts and links must have been so overwhelming, but you all handled it gracefully and with class!

♥ Donna

Mrs Weyremaster said...

A massive thank you to Mercy, Cindy and Kim, i can't believe the response the relay had, and you've done an amazing job, You Rock.

Thanks for being so generous with your time and creations. The relay inspired me to make my first ever cards. I'd been buying stamps and looking at blogs, but was hemming and hawing about getting started. Now I'm started, so thank you!

jose said...

I loved the relay! It was hard because of the time difference, but I had a good time.
I like to thank you for the wonderfull digi's I got the last 4 days.
By the way, I uploaded my prince Ian card because Ian is so cute!
Greetings,
José

Erin said...

:(
THANK YOU! it's unfortunate that everything got so unruly- it was loads of fun while it lasted! I'm so much less afraid of digi's now thanks to the relay!

I love the new Ians! Keep up the great work!

Robin McK said...

What a shame it had to finish early! Oh well, it was fun while it lasted!
Thanks to the volunteers for your hard work!

Maxine said...

It was fun while it lasted!!! You gals did a great job. I probably would've lost it the first couple of hours. GREAT JOB!!!! "We get what we get and we shouldn't throw a fit" =)

Jessie said...

Thanks so much for another amazing freebie!

Lisa Jane said...

Although i am sad the relay has finshed ,i want to say a great big thank you for letting me take part and for the free digi's.
The idea was fantastic and Mercy ,Cindy and Kim have done a fantastic job.
I am going to off to make a card with Prince Ian anyway - i have promised to give a batch of cards to a Charity called The Dogs Trust - and i am sure they will love the cards made in the relay.
I have thoroughly enjoyed the last few days - it has taken my mind off a very stressful time at work

Lisa ;)

Debbie Pamment said...

Emma Harrison said...

A huge thank you to everyone who put in so much hard work to make this such fun. I'm sad it's over but it has given my mojo a huge kick and I've loved working with the three different images - I'm especially pleased to have been able to try Toby as I don't normally go for critters! Thanks again and I'm looking forward to your news when you return from CHA.

Sharim said...

Hi! I couldn't do the relay but thank you for the 2 awesome digis. I adore Charlotte. Will she be available for purchase?

Katie said...

I feel like that goody-two-shoes kid in class when I say this, but, I'm sorry so many people gave you girls a hard time. I cannot imagine doing your job while this relay was going on! I'm sad to see it come to an end but thank you all for your work and the free digis we did get!
Now you can take a deep breath and relax!!!
Thanks,
Katie

Thank you to all who made this possible! Your generosity throughout this whole relay is beyond amazing! Thank you so much for the digi's as I'm sure I'll probably end up treasuring them even more now knowing all the hard work that went behind it!

Much love and can't wait to see what's to come upon your return! :)

I know it ended up being a ton of unexpected work, but thanks for trying to keep things moving along ladies, it was a BLAST!

Stampabilitys said...

Bummer!

I woke up this morning in Sunny Perth Australia after staying up way to late to finish my Prince Ian card, load my card on the gallery and my blog, go to post here and its finished!

So sad I was on the home stretch only one card left to go!

After all my hard work I'm posting my link anyway.

http://www.thegreetingfarm.com/galleria/showphoto.php?photo=11503

Sorry that the whole thing crashed and with only one day to go it is such a pity after all of your hard work to get it this far and for all of our late nights to create them for you.

Stacey said...

sad to see it end too. It has been an absolute blast... but we are all very understanding and cant wait for you all to come back. I am a newbie to the group, but love TGF and am getting more addicted by the minute ;) Thank you for all the fun and the time you spent gettiing this all together. Have fun and be safe.

southernscraps said...

Thank you so much for your hard work!! Too bad some folks can't read and post in the right place. I had fun while it lasted. Thanks.

KanataNewf said...

No need to apologize. I think you gals handled the over-whelming success of the relay as best you could. Anyone who works with technology appreciates that you don't have any control over your service providers. Wish there was a way that we could all show our appreciation to everyone on the team at TGF!

Frank said...

A HUGE Thank You to Mercy, Kim, and Cindy for keeping us occupied and sending us those fantastic digis...

I've enjoyed the challenge, and will continue to play with the images we received. I was ecstatic to see that there were 2 male Ians, as male stamps are hard to come by...so a special THANK YOU for that...

I did manage to complete the Prince Ian card and uploaded it...so I'm happy with that...

Again, THANK YOU for the freebies, and keep up the great work.

Kimberly S said...

Just wanted to say thanks so much for the opportunity to use the wonderful digi stamps you so kindly shared. Despite the pressure of things going wrong, the ladies were super nice and kept their cool...thank you! :)

lorena b. said...

lorena b. said...

*free(heehee)

Stacy said...

I cannot thank everyone at TGF for such a fun week. I have been a bit shy about posting my cards... this was just the kick in the pants that I needed!

Your generosity is greatly appreciated! Cannot wait to see the new creations and here about CHA.

Sammi said...

THANK you again Mercy, Kim and Cindy! You girls are really AWESOME! xxx

Tina said...

With my printer on the outs and haven't received my new one yet, I wasn't able to participate. I would like you to know that I very, very much appreciate the two free digis.
You all did a great job despite all the chaos. Sorry you had to go through all that. Thanks again for your generosity!

Katherine said...

Thanks for the free digis! I had fun doing my card entries!

You can see my entry in the gallery.

MY PRINCE IAN CARD

I wasn't able to go to Baguio (the summer capital of Philippines) yesterday with my friends, free vacation for 4 days..just not to miss the Day 5 on the Cha..but its okay, I enjoy making cards anyway.

The only way I can join the challenges at TGF is the free digis... coz I have only 2 stamps that I won "Sassy Suzi" and "Xmas Sweeties".. Thanks again for the freebies! MORE POWER TO TGF!

Tracy.H said...

It's too bad it had to end here...but I TOTALLY understand. I am sure all you ladies were pulling out your hair with all the website crashes and emails. Thanks for all the hard work and for the great images I received!

I still wanted to post my Prince Ian card: http://www.thegreetingfarm.com/galleria/showphoto.php?photo=11555&cat=773

I think the folks at TGF did the best that they could under the circumstances. No one could have predicted the over-whelming response! A good thing when you think about it! If you want to check out my creation with Prince Ian he is in the gallery here

Ok, I'm late posting this comment (was out of town yesterday) - but THANK YOU TO THE FARM!!! I'm sad to see the relay end - I loved the pressue (and the digis, lol) - but I'm glad there was such an awesome turnout, and most everyone seemed to have fun! (Oh, and a great big 'BOO' to anyone who may have possibly given Mercy, Cindy, or Kim any flak!!)
