HOPPIN' into the HOLIDAYS with TGF...

Hello EVERYONE!

There is excitement in the chilly air tonight as the TIME. HAS. COME...to HOP into the HOLIDAYS with The Greeting Farm!  Hooray!  We have been looking forward to doing an all-customer invited Blog Hop for QUITE some time now and are thrilled that tonight's the night.

If you are just getting here, be sure to start on the TGF Blog where there will be ONE official list of hoppers due to the volume of tonight's hop.   Be sure to pop in between 7 and 8 pm CST on our PCP page to chat w/ the DT, drink virtual egg-nog and be MERRY with TGF!

Well, as you can see, we have QUITE a surprise for you this evening.  You thought previews were OVER, didn't you?  Nope!  We are ringing in tonight's holiday hop and DECEMBER release with one more VERY cheeky character...INTRODUCING:

CHEEKY CHERRY PIE!!!

Isn't she DREAMY?  That's right-in case you were wondering why we were STARTING with the DT tonight when most hops have ended with us, THIS is why!   You won't want to miss her as we KNOW she's gonna go FAST-so be sure to grab her any time after MIDNIGHT TONIGHT, CST, when ALL the December TGF releases go live and for sale!

I used this week's MERCY's Tuesday Sketch Challenge and the NOVEMBER KEY INGREDIENTS kit from Taylored Expressions to create my card.  Here's the sketch:


If you are participating in one of our contests tonight (see THIS post for categories), the THREE categories will be live and posted in the TGF Galleria at 7pm CST tonight.  Please place your card in the appropriate category in the galleria NO LATER than 11:00am tomorrow, CST, DECEMBER 1st.   Winners will be drawn tomorrow around NOON CST and posted on the TGF Blog.  

In addition, the TWO lucky Blog Hop winners (must have left comments and completed blog hop by NOON CST (This gives our overseas friends as well as here in the states plenty of time to see the projects and comment :) will be announced at NOON CST as well on the TGF Blog.  GOOD LUCK to everyone and GET HOPPIN'!

Thanks so much for stopping by and for HOPPIN' into the HOLIDAYS with The Greeting Farm!
