Grandma's are the BEST...

Hello, everyone!


Thanks so much for staying so long today and hanging out with me for all three of my posts today.    I have one more fun PREVIEW from The Greeting Farm to share!   It's a really cute, folksy set, nothing like we've done before.   We're introducing the TGF "Grandparents", lovingly named "Flo" and "Joe"!


There's a TON going on over at the TGF Blog today too-DT announcements, Scrapbook Challenges, Previews...whew!  My head is spinning...and it's only the beginning!

I want to extend a HUGE congrats and welcome to MERCY KERIN!   Mercy will be joining TGF as an official "FARMER" after serving as Gardener and also as a member of our Critter Crew for a few months as well.    Her first official Preview as a Farmer is TODAY so please stop by her blog and wish her a warm welcome!

I have to laugh at my card today...if you have been to my blog a time or two, even as recently as Tuesday this past week, I posted a picture of my Mom.  She's SO beautiful and not that little Flo here isn't but my mom looks SO young.    I just don't picture her ever as that "little granny" with her apron and rolling pin, LOL.   She does love to bake, but haha, alas, I can't say that this is the kind of card my kids would normally give my Mom.    I have a feeling that I'm gonna get a reaction out of her if and when they DO give this to her, LOL!  

At any rate though, Flo is just TOO sweet!  I loved this Cherry Delicious retro paper from Sassafrass so much I knew just who I wanted to use it when Marie debuted this cute new set!

Be sure to check out the rest of the Farmer's today and check out their previews, as well as the TGF Scrapbook DT!  It's Thursday and time for another FAB Challenge:




Thanks everyone!

Over the river and through the woods....

But I have to admit, Grandpa stole my heart today! He looks just like my Dad, lol! Although, I'm not sure how our Papa would feel about that ;)
