A New Year and some SUPER EXCITING NEWS!!! (You WON'T want to miss this!!!)

Hey Everyone!
Well, the day has FINALLY arrived that I can share some VERY HAPPY news!  I was chosen to be on the new SHOWCASE DT over at The Greeting Farm!  Trust me, it was NOT easy keeping THIS secret these past few weeks!  The Greeting Farm is one of my FAVOURITE stamp companies and I am BEYOND THRILLED to be working with the CUTEST stamps around and to be joining a FABULOUS group of TALENTED ladies!

Well, that's not the only exciting is a word from TGF:

It's RELEASE DAY at The Greeting Farm!   We are SO excited too because not only are there a ton of new releases, there are a TON of new faces being introduced  on the TGF BLOG!   We are welcoming 8 new Design Team members to our "SHOWCASE" team, the team that will be carrying you through until our next round of previews in March.   Our new SHOWCASE team will be bringing you lots of fresh ideas using our new releases and some fun tutorials and other special posts along the way.

What's more?  We have SIX new releases available in the TGF Store and a chance to WIN all six of them just for hopping and saying hello to our new PREMIERE and SHOWCASE teams.  We hope you've enjoyed the last week or so of previews, announcements and are SO grateful that you are sharing in our excitement as TGF rings in the NEW YEAR!

Here is a Valentine's Day card that I made with one of the new sets, Miss Anya Garland:

Isn't she just the CUTEST?!  I ADORE the Miss Anya Collection and this set is NO EXCEPTION!  I just had a BLAST colouring her up...that is one of the BEST things about TGF, their images are just so FUN to colour!

I used this sketch from Iwona Palamountain aka. Chupa's Sketchbook Saturday 43:

Anyway, I hope that, working together with these AWESOME stamps, the rest of the Showcase DT and I will bring LOTS of inspiration your way and I'm sure that we'll get LOTS of inspiration from all of you in return!

HAPPY NEW YEAR everyone, I wish you ALL the BEST in 2012!
Now be sure to head over to The Greeting Farm Blog to check out all of the FUN!
