Happy Valentine's Day!


HELLO and WELCOME to our highly anticipated "My CHEEKY VALENTINE" Blog Hop!

We are SO excited to finally celebrate the release of The Greeting Farm's BRAND NEW stamp line, the Cheeky Cherry Sprouts! You've seen the previews, and we're so happy you agree that Rockabilly, Shooter, and Glamour have found a home on the Farm and in our hearts!

Today we have a SPECIAL surprise for you...the ENTIRE TGF DESIGN TEAM, both current AND ALUM were asked to participate in this event! We are THRILLED to be back as one big team and are prepared to ROCK THE FARM tonight, so sit back, grab some tea or maybe some of that Valentine's chocolate, and ENJOY!

Now, what would a hop be, especially on Valentine's Day, without PRIZES??? Well, there are PLENTY of them hanging around, and for our overseas friends, fear not, you will have until 9am CST TOMORROW (Monday, 2/15) to enter your comments to WIN the new stamps!

ONE GRAND PRIZE WINNER will be chosen from the Club Anya & Friends Blog to WIN ALL THREE Cheeky Cherry stamps! In addition, Jessica has "hidden" SIX Cheeky Cherry singles on certain team member's Blogs, both PAST and PRESENT, and those people will be able to CHOOSE which Cheeky they want to take home! That's 9 singles being given away today, everyone! Can you say AWESOME???

Well, let's get started then! Here is the OFFICIAL "My Cheeky Valentine" Blog Hop order:

back to CA&F Blog to let us know you've completed the HOP!

THE CHEEKY CHERRY stamps will be released Monday 2/15 at 12AM CST, in just a few hours! We anticipate that they will go fast as these sweet and sassy little bombshells have been quite well received from what we've been hearing, so scoop yours up ASAP! ALL winners will be posted on the Club Anya blog on Monday morning shortly after the 9am deadline. GOOD LUCK!

For my 1st card I used Glamour and paired her with some of the fabulous Basic Grey Bittersweet Papers. The XO border is from a Martha Stewart border punch. I also added some diamond stickles to her lovely mirror. This little hottie is colored with copics. For the 2nd I used Rockabilly and paired her with some fabulous October Afternoon paper.

Thanks so much for participating and for stopping by today, and be sure to stop by Elena's blog now...she's the NEXT STOP on the HOP!

Have a VERY Cheeky Evening, everyone ;)
