TGF Birthday Blog Hop!

Hello, friends!

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

We are thrilled to be joining the Farmers today in celebration of this very special event....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 through FRIDAY, August 5th at 10pm CST.    To claim your exclusive digi, just email Jessica 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.... I used the SUPER cute new Birthday Ian, I just love his little banner!  I didn't use the MM inspiration card because... I forgot.  No good excuse, lol, I just got so excited to ink him up and make a blog hop card that I totally forgot to combine it with MM! I know, I'm fired ;0)


 
On that note, be sure to check out the Farm Fresh Challenge blog for this week's Mystery Monday challenge as we hope you'll play along!

As for today's 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 us 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!
