Hello FRIENDS.

Today is a VERY exciting day for TGF...we are being featured on the PAPER CRAFTS CONNECTION- the official blog of Paper Crafts Magazine!!!


We are sponsoring two AWESOME prize packs-ONE on their blog, so please leave a comment to enter to win and tell them how much you LOVE TGF!!!


Another prize pack is being given away on their FACEBOOK PAGE- go check it out!  WE are OVER the MOON to have had this opportunity and are SO thrilled to be featured-  THANKS PaperCrafts!!!!

And....NOW, I have the pleasure..no...the HONOR of announcing the WINNERS for the 2011 TGF Cards for a Cause contest and also have put together a slideshow that I hope will tug at your heartstrings, make you smile, cry, and leave you in awe at the compassion and talent of some of our TGF friends.

Our RANDOM, GRAND PRIZE WINNER is....
KATHY DINH!
Congrats, you win the ENTIRE JULY RELEASE coming up, plus a $20 voucher code to spend in the TGF Store!

In addition, our highest # of cards was THIRTY!  That honor goes to Natalie Shaw aka Doodles :)  Congrats Natalie!  You win YOUR CHOICE of "CREEPIN" or "ROLL CALL!"  Email Jess to claim your prizes, girls...and congrats to ALL on a job well done.

Last but not least, our "TGF Good Will Ambassador" went to Kris Palakiko!  Kris referred our cause to her two young daughters, and since they were too young to have Facebook accounts, we are crowning them our amazing "mini-ambassadors"  :)   Congrats, Kris, you win your choice of a 4x6 set and single, and please tell your young artists we adore their work!!!

I want to personally thank EVERYONE who contributed to this cause and spent the extra money on postage, not to mention your time and efforts..I wish that I could give EVERYONE a prize for your compassionate contributions to TGF Cards for a Cause.   I know you didn't do it for the prizes, but that our awesome offerings were a motivating factor, LOL!  THANK YOU, again, from the bottom of my heart.

Now for our slideshow.  Sit back...relax...and enjoy the wonderful community here that is The Greeting Farm.  You guys make me and Marie SO, SO proud.
This was really fun for me to put together , but also very moving.  I hope it touches your heart...

Lots of Love,
Jess :)

Jessica what a fabulous video. Both my daughter and I watched and cried. Not tears of sadness so much as tears of Look what can be done when we think of each other as people. I love that the Greeting Farm does things like this and I couldn't think of better people to surround myself with. Thanks for all your inspiration for not only myself but my family as well. Hugs, Lisa G
