Happy 3rd Birthday TGF! It's a Birthday Bash!

Beware:  THIS IS A REALLY LONG POST, but so worth reading! 

WELCOME to The Greeting Farm's 3 YEAR Birthday Bash!

We are thrilled to be joining the Farmers today in celebration of this very special event . . . to officially celebrate The Greeting Farm's 3-Year-Young Birthday!  To kick off the August release, we are celebrating with a special birthday blog hop. First and foremost, we want to thank EVERYONE for your continued support, encouragement and enthusiasm these past three years. We know it's said all over the cyber-world, but we TRULY appreciate and understand the fact that if it weren't for all of you, TGF would not be anywhere near the community and business it is today and for that we are truly grateful.

On that note, before I show you my project for today, we want to announce that we have an EXCLUSIVE digi stamp as a gift with ANY rubber stamp purchase TODAY through FRIDAY, August 5th at 10pm CST. To claim your exclusive digi, just email Jessica with a copy of your receipt and your FREE GIFT will be sent shortly after! Remember, this is ONLY good through the 5th at 10pm so make sure you get yours before it disappears forever!

***************

On to the Farm Fresh Challenge Blog's challenge.  Yes, we can't forget about our MM challenge right?  Today the DT is CASE'ing this card made by, Krista aka Craftylittlepigtails.


Here is my project.  I'm using Birthday Anya 2 and Birthday Ian.  What better way to celebrate TGF's birthday!  :)  I masked to 2 images together and created a Cake Card.  


Here's a side view of the card laying down.

Here's what the card looks like when opened up.  Cuteness huh?  :)  I can't remember who's blog it was when I saw this Cake Card, but I managed to get a link to a tutorial. Click {HERE} for the tutorial.


Ok, here's a look at it with all the candles in the cake.  HAPPY 3rd BIRTHDAY TGF!!!!!! 


The Mystery Monday contest runs until Sunday, entries are due by 12 PM CST. The winner is chosen by random draw and will win a free TGF single stamp of choice, so good luck! Please post your cards in the TGF Galleria - Home > Farm Fresh Challenges 2011 > Mystery Mondays > CraftyLittlePigtails.

As for today's event, there are THREE NEW RELEASES and since we're feelin' generous on our birthday, we are giving away THREE August Release Prize Packs today (exclusive digi not included :) just for hopping with us and coming BACK to the TGF Blog to wish our little Farm a happy day!
