THREE CHEERS for TGF!...

WELCOME to The Greeting Farm's THREE YEAR Birthday Bash!

We are SO excited to kick off the August release by celebrating that The Greeting Farm is officially three. years. YOUNG.    First and foremost, we want to thank EVERYONE for your continued support, encouragement and enthusiasm these past three years.  We know it's said all over the cyber-world, but we TRULY appreciate and understand the fact that if it weren't for all of you, TGF would not be anywhere near the community and business it is today and for that we are truly grateful.

On that note, before I show you my project for today, we want to announce that we have an EXCLUSIVE digi stamp as a gift with ANY rubber stamp purchase TODAY throughFRIDAY, August 5th at 10pm CST.    To claim your exclusive digi, just email me with a copy of your receipt and your FREE GIFT will be sent shortly after!    Remember, this is ONLY good through the 5th at 10pm so make sure you get yours before it disappears forever ;)

As for my special project.... it all started with Anya and here she is- 3 years later looking as sassy and adorable as EVER!   HAPPY BIRTHDAY, TGF:

Hope you enjoy!   As for that cute twine bow in the corner?  It's the new BUTTERCREAM twine from The Twinery!  Check out the BRAND NEW COLORS debuting today and available now:


As for today's Greeting Farm event, there are THREE NEW RELEASES and since we're feelin' generous on our birthday, we are giving away THREE August Release Prize Packs today (exclusive digi not included :) just for hopping with our Farmers and coming BACK to the TGF Blog to wish our little Farm a happy day! 

You will have until 11:59pm CST tonight to comment on the DT's blogs and come back to the TGF Blog to leave some love!

 Let's get started...first on the TGF Blog, where you can head back anytime in case you get lost or need to refresh along the way (trust me, we KNOW how exciting this is...heehee  ;)  oh!  and we have ONE more special surprise today, too.  Our Farm Fresh Challenge Team is joining in on the FUN!  Please welcome these girls to our party as well- the more the merrier, I always say!

Jess, I really think you need to make a tutorial for coloring hair...your TGF images are always beautifully colored and I think we'd all love to know how you do it, or if you have a secret technique?!!

Love your card, and not because I go ga-ga over orange...but because it's a fab LO, clean and simple!
