It's a TGF Preview Day - AND - a VERY cool contest!

 Hey guys, I'm VERY excited to be able to finally show
my preview for
The Greeting Farm's November release.

You may remember back in July?? Maybe it was August
that Jessica gave us all a sneak peak of the brand new line
from The Greeting Farm called "Twinkle Tots"
OH MY her cards were awesome,
but now.... I was lucky enough to play with them too!
I am just IN LOVE with these little Tots!
I just KNOW that you will be too!

We definitely have some excitement "growing" over at the farm!
Alright, right down to business then....
Do you want to see my very first "Twinkle Tot" card first???
Do you want to hear all about
the EXCITING stuff we have planned for you???

Ohhhh, not answering me huh?
Well okay, I guess I will show you my card first,

Ohhhh, wait!!!!.........
Who remembers Kim Nath?
Well Guess What!?!
She's Back!!!  Yes yes.. that's right,
Kim is back with The Greeting Farm
She's a Full Time Farmer now!
I hope you'll join us in Welcoming her back.
I told you we had some excitement to share today!

Okay - Okay... So, back to the subject of my card....
You are going to fall in love with this darling girl!

Meet Madelynn!

What do you think, is she absolutely adorable or what?

The papers are from TGF's Merry Merry paper pack,
I'm in love with them, and they are just perfect for this little tot!
Madelynn was colored using Copic markers,
and some coordinating glitter from Martha Stewart's
Collection.  I used Rose Quartz on Madelynns flower
and heart on her coat, and then Brownstone
on the trim of her hat and coat
A little bit to the flowers as well.
it was the perfect touch to give her a little bit of pizzaz
the sentiment was computer generated.
Flowers from Prima.
This Tot's Got Bling
Which brings me to another subject!

Believe me, you are going to love this!!!!
