SLEIGHBELLS RING...are YOU listenin'?

Hello, Farm Friends! It's hard to believe that in a few short months, we'll be twirling into Thanksgiving, caroling into Christmas, and putting some HEART in the HOLIDAYS! While we don't want to rush any of the magical times ahead, 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!

I have been quite busy....and lazy....lately so not much time to craft lately. Since I have pretty limited crafting time, I decided to go with a plain and simple card. I used my new picot die! Love it!

This Clear Christmas set inspired me to make a Santa's Sleigh! It's very fun to make and you can find a template HERE.


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!

If that card is your standard for when you are lazy and don't have much time, I wish I were as lazy and busy as you are. It is a very elegant design. Thanks for sharing the link for the sleigh - I love that website, but haven't had the time to poke around all of their projects.
