We have another HUGE ANNOUNCEMENT for you today. Announcing our 2nd annual "CARDS FOR A CAUSE" event!


Last year you really brought us to tears and smiles on our faces with our 1st card drive. Due to it's success, we are rallying the troops again for a 2nd one and well, we're making it ANNUAL!


This year, we were moved beyond measure with so many emotions for the people of Japan as we watched live video of the earthquakes and tsunami that devastated so many people on March 11, 2011. It broke my heart to see videos of families in shelters, children looking terrified and not understanding what happened. Some of those families lost everything and when our loyal TGF customer Natalie Shaw emailed me a link to a school that we could send in handmade encouragement cards for children, we knew this was going to be something TGF wanted to be involved in! Our images are PERFECT to cheer up a child and we really hope you will play along!


Please view the tabbed page on the TGF Blog entitled "Cards for a Cause" for all the information on how YOU can help...and possibly, WIN some serious loot from TGF! PLEASE JOIN US!


As for 'loot' today, well, you know the drill! ONE lucky commenter who completes the hop and comes back to the TGF Blog to leave a comment will be drawn to WIN the ENTIRE May Release!


For my card tonight, since I hadn't used her yet, I decided to use the SUPER CUTE new Wild Sprout, Elena!! She is SUPER cute, and would be PERFECT for a teenage or young girl's birthday, or whatever you want!! She was stamped on an X-Press It blending card, and then colored with my Copics. I then layered her, using my Cuttlebug and Circle Nesties, with Taken With teal and Rose Red. My paper is form the MME Stella & Rose Gertie paper. My ribbon is from MFT, and my spiral clip is from Creative Express. I used SU punches to make my sentiment panel.

Without any further adieu, here is the order of our Farmers' BLOG HOP for release day:

You will have until 11:59 pm CST TONIGHT to comment and become a follower and we will happily announce the winner tomorrow morning on the TGF Blog!

GOOD LUCK, ENJOY and HAPPY RELEASE DAY, everyone!!!
