Hey Soul Sister!

It is December 28th and that means that not only do I have a week of New Year's previews and fun to present to you from The Greeting Farm...but also that I can FINALLY let you in on the news that has made my year and will make my New Year even better too...I AM A FARMER for The Greeting Farm!!!!!! Two other fabulously talented and inspiring ladies are also joining me and they are Melyssa Connolly and Randi Wall. I can hardly believe it and feel like I need to be pinched. Thank you Marie for this fabulous opportunity, Jessica for being the best DT cordinator ever, all the past and present DT at the farm and Club Anya for all your inspiration, and to all my friends and followers for your support, encouragement and comments. You all mean so much to me.

I am SO excited today as for the first time EVER, TGF and Club Anya are JOINING FORCES and previewing our new releases together for the HUGE JANUARY RELEASE BASH that's only days away!

We are SO excited to be previewing FOUR NEW SPROUTS....ALL styled by our very own Team Anya member AMY YOUNG! WHOO HOO!!!!!! Congrats Amy! Today's little cutie is named Chelsea. I got the new Train CD for Christmas and Soul Sister was what was going through my head as I was coloring up this hip lovely. I found some of the funky Cosmo Cricket paper in my scraps and colored her up with my copic markers. I thought some nice blonde hair with blue streaks would be fun. I colored her ipod to match the streaks. I have also used the 8th day of Christmas Sketch from The Greeting Farm Blog.

In addition, the TGF DT has another sneak peek at a SUPER fun new set called "Talk Loud", a word-art sentiment set that is new, totally fun and something we've never done before at The Greeting Farm! I used two of the sentiment stamps in my preview. Be sure to check out samples from ALL of the TGF DT and Club Anya as you'll be nothin short of amazed! I've got them all listed in my side bar.

I'll be back with another cute sprout design tomorrow, but first, I have a few announcements for the week:

*Our HUGE "IN WITH THE NEW at TGF" BASH will begin at 9am CST on Friday, 1/1/2010 and run through 8PM with challenges, prizes, and FUN!
