Sleighbells ring....are YOU listening?

Hey, everyone!
 It's hard to believe that in a few short months, we'll be twirling into Thanksgiving, caroling into Christmas, and putting some HEART into the HOLIDAYS!   While we don't want to rush any of the magical times ahead (and maybe not rush that cold weather, either!), we know that it takes time and energy to get a head start on those Holiday cards!

Today marks day one of a FIVE-day PREVIEW EVENT at The Greeting Farm, and we are thrilled to bring you our first sneak peek at a new CLEAR stamp set, simply titled "CLEAR CHRISTMAS!"  Before we get to previews, we have a SUPER special October Guest Designer to announce today!  Please welcome the amazingly sweet and talented LORI CRAIG to our TGF family this month!   Lori's blog, "Make a Difference" is inspiring and from the heart, you'll definitely want to visit and we are over the moon that she is joining us this month. WELCOME. LORI!


My card today uses this adorable sleigh and a super fun 'naughty/nice' checkbox sentiment-I had a BLAST making this card even though I normally balk about making holiday cards TOO early!  Isn't this set just so sweet and different for TGF, too- which is another cool thing about it!

Well, does that get you in the spirit, even though it's a little early?  We hope so!  Don't forget to check out the TGF BLOG today for MORE samples from the entire DT and a chance to WIN this set before it's released!  What's more?  We have a HUGE announcement coming on SATURDAY, OCTOBER 1st during our RELEASE day post and you will NOT want to miss this one...promise!  Not only do we have a new release coming, a new Challenge Team coming October 1st...we have ONE more exciting announcement and it might just be our best one YET! 

 Thanks for stopping by today...I will definitely be back with more very soon!

Your card has a nice feel to it - it's Christmasy in a subtle way. Love the symmetry of it also.

I am listening, no sleigh bells here, which means no snow (thank you very much), but I sure do like the sleigh stamp. :)
