TGF's 3rd annual Holiday BLOG HOP!...

Hello and WELCOME to The Greeting Farm's 3rd annual Customer BLOG HOP!

I'm so excited about this year's hop...we have a HUGE list of hoppers and TONS of inspiration today, so be sure to START on the TGF BLOG!

We are ending another FABULOUS year on the Farm, and tomorrow marks some NEW excitement beginning with the reveal of the 1st  of SIX January previews and the reveal of TWO of our four new TGF Premiere Farmers!  There is LOTS going on... but for now, I'll get to why you came here with a fun HOLIDAY ANYA card for today's hop:

I cut out the sentiment from the Crate Paper "Peppermint" DP I was working with and tied it all up with a Jenni Bowlin button.  I love the sentiment- "Happy Christmas to all, and to all a Good night!"  

I am SO looking forward to Christmas this year.   I'm so excited to celebrate the many, many gifts in my life with my favorite people...my family.  My cousin is home from his 2nd year-long deployment and we are all excited to celebrate that too!   What are you celebrating this Christmas?  I'd love to hear!

Be sure to go back to the TGF BLOG now too because I believe I'm the last stop today!   Thanks so much everyone for your awesome support of TGF this year and Merry Christmas from all of us on the Farm- hope you have a GREAT time and that you'll join us in some chatter on our SCS Forum today, too!  The hop goes from 10am CST to 10pm CST- enjoy!

xoxo,

Hi Jess. I just have to tell you that I have this paper pad and it just looks so sweet with your Anya. She looks like she is ready for Christmas too. Much like you I just can't seem to wait for Christmas this year. I will have my family here with us and then we will be visiting my cousin and his family the day after. My cousin and his wonderful wife are both my kids' Godparents, so we have a very special bond with them. I can't wait. I am so happy for you and your family that your cousin is home from his deployment. That is so special. Happy Happy Christmas to you all. Hugs, Lisa
