All roads lead home...

It’s the 15th, and the SEPTEMBER Release is now available for purchase in The Greeting Farm Store! Our first set called MISS ANYA HELLO WINTER features 3 big Anyas all prepared to deal with the cooler weather in style, along with an adorable mini snowman! Next, we introduced some too-cute-to-spook characters in the TRICK OR TREAT 3 Set. Lastly, we showcased a set called MY CARE TEAM, which is not only perfect for get-well cards, but also for thank you cards to the nurses and doctors who take care of you and your family.

To celebrate our release, we are having a short BLOG HOP. You have until SEPTEMBER 18th at 12pm CST/1pm EST to leave your comments on each Designer's Blog and The Greeting Farm Blog (letting us know you completed the hop). The winner wins this entire release! 

**NOTE: Please use the same name on all the blogs when leaving a comment. Also, please do not pick the Anonymous option when leaving a comment (otherwise we won't be able to verify that it's you). Thank you!

TGF Design Team:

This is a short hop, and definitely worth playing along! Of course, if you can't wait for the hop to be over, you can purchase these stamps HERE.

For my hop card I have made a sweet Christmas card using the short haired Miss Anya from the new Hello Winter set. I wanted this scene to feel like it is Christmas Eve and Anya has finally made it back home after a crazy day spent in holiday crowds and traffic. The relief of knowing that in just a few short minutes she will be surrounded by all the people she loves most in the world. 

And as a bonus, I've also got a card using the Stamptember TGF collaboration set with Simon Says Stamp called, To All Of You. If you haven't seen the set yet it is full of adorable little penguins all bundled up for the cold. I had fun masking a bunch of them together to create a holiday march of the penguins. I don't know where they are marching to, perhaps a Christmas party, LOL! There are still sets available at Simon Says but don't wait too long to grab them because once these exclusive sets are sold out they are gone for good.

Alrighty then, thanks for stopping by and enjoy the hop!
