Hey everybody!

Well, did you all survive Halloween?   I tell you what, the Daylight Savings Time people must have gotten together with the Halloween people this year and I’d like to give whoever that is a great big HUG because I think ALL of us Moms appreciate that extra hour of sleep!  Whew!  I know I did!  After getting over a horrendous coughing virus at our house, getting up SUPER early 2 days in a row and just being a bit out of whack, I am happy to have another hour for SURE!

Well, I hope to show more Halloween pics soon, but for now…I’ve got some other fun stuff to talk about…TODAY IS THE DAY!  It’s NOVEMBER 1st…time for the NOVEMBER RELEASE at THE GREETING FARM!

Yeah!  Those FIVE adorable “Twinkle Tots” you’ve come to know and love in addition to the uber-cute and super versatile “My House” stamp set are NOW AVAILABLE on the TGF Website!

HAPPY SHOPPING, everyone, and don’t forget that you still have until NOON CST to get your entries in for the “This Tot’s Got…” contests and also the “Home is where the ___ is” contests!   WINNERS will be announced during our VSN TONIGHT at 7PM CST on the TGF Forum.  Our little suaree will go until about 9PM and we hope to chat with lots of you there!

For now, I’ll leave you with my daughter…well, the stamped version of her, anyway!  I bring you my sweet Ava…and you’ll definitely be seeing more of her…both IRL and in stamped form, hee hee.

Have a great Sunday, everyone!

Jessica :)

Flair with Sunshine is a GREAT combo…

Don’t you agree???

{{{Please scroll down for my FARM FRESH FRIDAY post for The Greeting Farm…I have a VERY special card today and am still reeling in the excitement of having stamps  of my two DD’s and CAN’T WAIT for you to see! Thank you SO much!}}}

Ok, so today is Friends with Flair Friday at UNITY STAMPS and OH MY….have you guys SEEN the NEW KITS????? I am CHOMPING AT at the bit to get them in the mail!!!  Angela is having an AMAZING Sale THIS WEEKEND ONLY ….so be sure to check it OUT!!! 

Speaking of kits…I’m seriously anticipating the November Kit of the Month, especially now that I have seen some CUTE CUTE CUTE sneak peeks this week!  But, I’m definitely NOT done with the AMAZING October Kit either…in fact this card is made with two of my FAVE stamps from the kit!

I LOVE this quote.  LOVE, LOVE, LOVE IT!   It’s SO true, and also a good reminder I think, don’t you? 

“WHEREVER you GO….no matter what the Weather…always  BRING YOUR OWN SUNSHINE”…
Well, I hope you all have a WONDERFUL weekend and that it’s FULL of sunshine!   Thanks for scrolling down to see my “Madelynn” card, too ๐Ÿ˜‰  It definitely doesn’t EVER go unnoticed that you guys hang here and I LOVE that.   Thanks for being so MANY rays of sunshine for me…you really are!

HAVE MERCY! It’s my DD Madelynn!…

I’m pretty excited about this week’s Farm Fresh Friday challenge from The Greeting Farm…and that’s in part because 2 out of the FIVE new TWINKLE TOTS are my DD’s ๐Ÿ˜‰   Marie has TOTALLY outdone herself with these adorable new stamps, being released on SUNDAY, Nov 1st!

That’s right!  In JUST a few days, you’ll be able to take these cuties home!   I’m SO excited for them!  I’m also really stoked because my friend and SKETCHER EXTRAORDINAIRE Mercy Kerin has volunteered up our Farm Fresh Friday challenge this week with this brilliant sketch:

Isn’t it fantastic?   I was BURSTING w/ excitement as I made this card a few days ago and am SO glad it’s finally time to show it….I bring you…Madelynn:

Isn’t she precious?  I used Mercy’s sketch and flipped it to create this card using one of my FAVE Holiday DP’s of the season-Cosmo Cricket’s Jolly By Golly!

Have I MENTIONED how AWESOME these new Twinkle Tots are to color?  They really are a dream to color up and I just can’t see myself putting them down any time soon!

We hope you’ll play along with Mercy’s sketch this week on the Greeting Farm’s blog, and be sure to check out my fellow TGF DT girls to see the UBER amazing creations they have for you today too:

That’s it for now…thanks for sticking with me today!  HUGS and have a great weekend!

Mi Casa es…

…A gingerbread house!   Well, at least for today!

I am SUPER stoked about another AMAZING new release from The Greeting Farm!  The set is called “MY HOUSE” and it will be released on the 1st along with the adorable new Twinkle Tots that you saw earlier in the week :)

“My house” is the PERFECT stamp set for new home, congratulating someone else on their home, even apartment. EVERYONE can use this set-I love it.   It just so happens that I havent’ done my moving announcements yet because I’ve been a TAD bit busy, LOL…so I am even more excited about this!

And, as some of the members of the TGF DT found out, this set is even MORE versatile than we thought….make sure you stop by the TGF blog to see what I mean!   And you can see my take on this cute set  right now, using this week’s Sketch for you to Try by Jen Del Muro:

Be sure to stop by and leave some love for the rest of my TGF girlies, too:
