Fairy Tale Friday...

{{{UNITY FRIENDS WITH FLAIR FRIDAY POST BELOW! THANK YOU SOOOOO much for SCROLLING DOWN to see it!}}}

Greetings my friends!

Whew! It has been a BUSY week here on my blog and I can't thank you guys enough for your support! I have had a ton going on and have been truly loving EVERY minute!

Well, today is Farm Fresh Friday at The Greeting Farm and we are doing a "NO Frills" challenge. This basically means no ribbon, lace, bows, etc. but you can read all about it on the TGF Blog. My card today is for FFF, but there is a little extra fun involved this week...

...I have some VERY exciting news. You might have remembered me talking about this last week but I was just in too much pain (wisdom tooth/jaw) to get my act together, LOL. Anyway, before I share my news, I'd like to share some recent pics of Ava, my soon to be 4 year old little princess:So why the pics today? Well, one because I ADORE this child, and two, if you got the TGF Newsletter yesterday, you've already gotten a little sneaky peek of my card below ;) Are you subscribed to the newsletter? You can click on the TGF store and sign up there if you haven't had a chance to yet!

So about that exciting news....I'm sure you can ONLY imagine how honored, ecstatic, and even emotional I was when Marie drew THIS image:Can you BELIEVE IT!?? LOOKS JUST LIKE HER! AVA will be released on November 1, 2009 at The Greeting Farm and I am OVER the moon about it :) She will be released along with the three other new girls, Lottie, Izzy and Madelynn (my other DD!) that I previewed a few months ago, and also Max, a cute little all-American boy. This new line will be called "Twinkle Tots" and I am BEYOND excited about them!

Well, thanks so much for sticking with me and I hope you all have a fantastic Friday!

hugs,
Jess ;)

What an adorable card you made! And your Ava is just a doll. So cute. I have an Ava too and she just turned 4 in August. My little one has blonde hair and blue eyes! She loves frogs too...well the stuffed animal kind that is. lol And of course princess inspired clothing. I just took some pictures of her last night in her Cinderella costume she is wearing for Halloween. :) I think this is a definite must have for me stamp, when it is released.

Gasp! How exciting is that! Marie captured your little darling perfectly. I've been thinking about doing a story book for DD with stamps that has images for some of our made up stories and one of them involves a princess with a bunch of frogs and screaming "Ahhhh!". LOVE your card. It looks so much like the picture of your daughter.
