Hopping along with TGF

Hello, hello!

In case you couldn't guess from my card, today I'm joining in the 3rd annual TGF customer blog hop. This has become a tradition that I wouldn't miss for the world... I love The Farm! :)
There are a lot of fabulous stampers joining the fun today so be sure to check out the entire list of hoppers over on the TGF blog. Not only are there two grand prizes up for grabs for those who made cards for the hop but they will also be
drawing a random hopper to win the ENTIRE upcoming January Release! That's 6 sets in all... a HUGE prize...and the only way to win is by participating in the blog hop!

My card today is for the Holiday Project hop theme and I went for a playful and cheery Christmas card featuring two of the fairies (turned elves with just a few snips of my scissors) from the Fairy Princess clear stamp set, as well as some Christmas cookies that I trimmed out of the Merry Tags. I envisioned these cute little elves helping out Mrs. Claus as she bakes and decorates a fresh batch of delicious snacks for Santa and the rest of the elves. Because you know those elves love sugary sweets to help keep them on top of their game, LOL!

Alrighty, considering the number of stops on this hop I won't keep ya any longer. Thanks so much for stopping by and I hope that your week is off to a great start! :)
