It's starting to look a lot like Christmas.....

"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 (and maybe not rush that cold weather, either!), 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!

For my card today, I used the adorable sleigh image of the set that I colored with copics plus one of the round sentiments. I think they would be lovely as tags as well and plan to make some of those up for the holidays. I also used some gorgeous bakers twine from The Twinery. I LOVE it - it's so rich & pretty.

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!

I love the pinks and browns you used with the colors of the sleigh - they work nicely together. The Night Before Christmas words just make your card that much more special.
