When a Butterfly Wishes...Dreams come true!... (and there's CANDY at the end of this rainbow!)

I've been keeping a BIG SECRET. (giggle)

I am SO excited, happy, nervous, relieved, even a little scared... ecstatic and most of all, GRATEFUL to be posting this today.

I am BEYOND thrilled to bring you...

...BUTTERFLY WISHES...my VERY own stamp set through The Greeting Farm!

When Marie and I began talking a few months ago about the need for sentiments at The Greeting Farm and my ideas for the set, I never dreamed that this day would actually get here! This set combines everything about me that I want to share with all of you. Not only do I love to stamp, and have a TEENY obsession with butterflies, but I also love to write, so being able to design a set with my own "sentiments" and include them with some super versatile, "everyday" ones is just amazing for me! Not to mention seeing it in print, then rubber, then on a card...it is inexplicable and just so very, very exciting!

Butterfly Wishes will be available through The Greeting Farm beginning on Wednesday, July 1st.

You will be seeing a few more sneaks with this set between now and the 1st here on my blog, and maybe even a few "Butterfly Whisperers" out there as well in blog land, so keep your eyes peeled ;)

Before I get to how you can WIN this set (yay!), I want to take a moment to say just how very grateful I am for this experience.

Marie, you have made a dream come true and are also a dream to work with. I can't imagine a better working relationship between two people and I am TRULY grateful that you see my vision, can deal with my spazzing now and then, LOL, and allow me to express myself through your awesome stamps at TGF. First with Club Anya, now as DT Coordinator for TGF also, and finally, collaborating on this set. You clean up my hand-drawn butterflies like nobody can LOL! Everyday is a fun frenzy at the Farm and I am thankful for your vision, guidance, and friendship.
I also want to thank ALL of you, my blogging buddies for your continued support and I hope I've made you proud! I can't WAIT to see what your creative minds and hearts will do with this set and be sure to email me and let me know because it would mean the WORLD to me to see it in action!

Last but not least, want to WIN this set? I hope you do! Leave a comment on today's post and "Flutter to a friend" to let them in on all the fun, too so that they can enter! I will draw a winner and post on FRIDAY, so you have until Thursday (the 25th) at 11:59PM to enter! Marie and I will be giving away a few of these over the next few weeks so stay tuned!

For now, I hope you all have a FABULOUS day...whew! I am still reeling from finally letting the "Butterfly out of the bag", LOL! Hugs to you ALL!

Jessica :) xoxo
