HOO loves you, baby?...

Hey friends!  Today is day 1 of May previews for TGF and I am SUPER stoked!  It has been a while now since The Greeting Farm released an animal set, and we are adding to our super cute collection of forest friends today with "HOO LOVES YOU?!"   We think owls have been a real 'hoot' lately around blog land and well, you are going to LOVE Marie's fun and creative take on these cute creatures!

"Hoo Loves YOU?" features three adorable owls in different whimsical patterns and is one of several new releases at TGF this coming month!   I couldn't wait to create with the awesome WOW Wednesday sketch from the Farm Fresh challenge blog yesterday!  

I used Helmar small white square ZAP DOTS to do the paper tole technique on this card.  I think the little owls look so cute given a little dimension!  I LOVE getting crafty w/ Helmar adhesives, as you may have guessed from yesterdays little announcement ;)


Speaking of crafty, a HUGE welcome to our May Guest Designer and my pal, Jessie Rone!  Jessie is no stranger to the blogging world and has mad skillz with ribbon, spiral clips, and the beautiful layered creations she posts day after day!  I remember her enthusiasm for TGF stamps when she first used one for a challenge blog we were sponsoring and it was love at first sight...mutually :)   Please visit her BLOG and give her a warm, farm -fresh welcome!

Our MAY release will go live at 12:01 am CST May 1st in the TGF store and you'll definitely want to come visit us for our DT Blog hop *AND* the reveal of our 2nd annual "Cards for a Cause" drive.  There will be lots of fun and PRIZES and you can join us in a heart-warming cause as well.  See you THERE!

For now, be sure to stop by the TGF BLOG and see how YOU can win a "HOO loves you" set!  See you back here tomorrow for another he fun resumes tomorrow as we have ANOTHER fun preview to show you and some of our Challenge DT girls will be joining us for this one!  Thanks for stopping by!
