It is finally October 1st and I can not believe that I have lasted this long. I have some AWESOME NEWS to share with all of you. One night after work in August I received an email from Jessica from The Greeting Farm (my all time favorite stamp company) and she asked me if I was doing anything 'special' between October and March. Well I replied "no" and ran into our bedroom to tell my husband what I had just read. Apparently I don't think I am capable of reading when I am excited. I then returned to my computer and there was another email from Jessica asking me if I would like to be a member of the next challenge team. I don't even think I was breathing by then. Of course I emailed her right way (just in case she had made a mistake, lol) and told her that I would LOVE to be involved with anything that had to do with The Greeting Farm. So as you might have guessed by now, I am officially a member of the new challenge team for The Greeting Farm's Farm Fresh Challenge Blog. I am so excited and I can not wait to make a lot of great things with my fellow team members. You guys are going to so happy with all the things these awesome ladies are coming up just for you. :O)
So as you know this weeks challenge is to case one of Rachel's spectacular cards. I had a hard time picking just one to CASE. Rachel is so talented. So for today, I decided to use one of her awesome easel cards and make my Great Nephew (who just turned 1 yesterday) a card for his Birthday. Here is my card. Hope you like it.
