“The more that you read, the more things you will know. The more that you learn, the more places you'll go.”

LOVE Dr. Seuss.  What a wise, wise soul...

{{{Thanks by the way, for scrolling down to see my LPS post today.  It's a fun one!}}}

Reading is a HUGE part of our lives, especially in my family and even more specifically my 9 year old Madelynn.  She has SUCH a passion for reading and writing...puts me to shame with the number of books read in a year, I tell ya...and I could NOT be happier about it!

That being said, I'm sure it comes as NO surprise to you how SUPER excited I was when I saw these new images that will be released TOMORROW at The Greeting Farm!!!!!

I am SO, SO excited about these three new images, illustrated by the amazing author and artist Elizabeth Dulemba.  She brings these whimsically vintage characters to life in the form of rubber stamps for The Greeting Farm and we are SO stoked to have her!

Some of you may have gotten a SUPER sneaky peek at the cards I have for you today in our TGF Newsletter, which is released each month on the 15th.   Here they are, using:

Victorian Reader


and Reading Fairy


The best part?  You only have to wait ONE more day!  Our TGF release is TOMORROW and it all begins with a Blog Hop on the TGF Blog so don't miss it!

See you back here tomorrow!  And THANKS for scrolling down for my Little Paper Shop post!  Cheers!

The little fairy reading is so darn cute! And I love how you made it look a little 'distressed' I love that technique! Hey, can you still get the Twilight guys from TGF??? I looked this past weekend with my daughter (she loves them) and couldn't seem them. Was it a limited time thing?

Well I can not type very fast as I did not have my Br**N Free glasses on and I am having a major allergy/asthma attack why do you do this to me?? I would think you would have more respect for one of your biggest fans!!!?????

No seriously I really love both of the images but I am a sucker for Antique, Vintage, and Retro products and images I love the card with the victorian lady it is a true piece of ART if you ask me great job my friend!!!!!
