Say It Ain't So!


If you’ve already been over at The Greeting Farm blog this morning you know that on a happy note, it’s PREVIEW DAY (wooohoooo!!!), but on another note it’s a sad sad day for me (and Cindy). Today I’m showing you my last Farm Fresh Friday card as a Farmer for TGF. **insert big frowning face**

Thought us Farmers were lifers, eh? I wished on so many stars and birthday candles, but alas, our contracts are just for 1 year. And boy does a year FLY by!!

But it’s been the absolute best year and a half for me. When I got the email in March 2009 offering me a Gardener position, I had no idea what a wonderful journey I would be embarking on! I have grown so much in my craft, cultivated so many beautiful friendships and seen every room in my house fill up with stamping supplies (Mr. UPS man and I are best buds now)! I want to thank YOU all from the bottom of my heart for your support, heartfelt comments and friendship. And of course, Marie and Jess--words cannot express how truly grateful I am to the both of you! MUAH.

This is not the end of the road for me though…I feel there is something VERY exciting just around the corner for me…so I hope that you’ll check back real soon to see what that is. And until then, I’m having a little going away party for myself…see blog post below this one.

My Farm Fresh Friday card features Creeper Wednesday. And you may have noticed that on the TGF blog she was going out with a little more class saying, “this is how I roll,” but here on my blog she’s mocking me for being sad by saying, “Oh no! You’d better call the waaambulance.” Well, Creeper Wednesday…fine, call the waaambulance…there’s no shame in being sad today. Heehee.
The FAB sketch I used for this card is the FARM FRESH FRIDAY challenge for this week and it was designed by the talented Farmer Mercy. Both sentiments are from There She Goes Stamps, the paper is new from My Minds Eye called Blackbird, the button is Sassafras and the ribbon is Maya Road.
Thanks so much for stopping by today! I’m sending each of you a big virtual hug right now! AND be sure to check out the details of my BLOG CANDY below!!

Oh it ain't so! It ain't so! I know that we will still see many yummy cards, including TGF, on your blog and we've been so very blessed by your creations. I've seen this paper online but yours is the first card I've seen made with the Blackbird paper - tres chic!! Love the rich, bold colors to your card - supah! Hang in there, sweet friend - I have a feeling there is something wonderful around the corner for you *wink!* Happy Weekend!

OMG Kadie!!
This card is gorgeous!! The background papers are perfect for the image! Your colouring rocks!!

Lorie said...

Awwww, Kadie! I know you have had to enjoy your time at TGF, because I sure have. You have brought class, creativity, and a genuine love for this craft to every wonderful creation you have shared, and those creations will be sadly missed by those of us who follow you and look forward to your TGF posts. I have no doubt that there are wonderful and exciting things ahead for you, and I wish you lots of love and happy stamping in all of your creative endeavors. I love ya, sweetie!

Lorie said...

Oh, I love the card, BTW!! Got a little sidetracked with emotion there. :-)

It will be sad to see you go as a Farmer, but I'm sure there will be more gorgeous cards from you here on your blog anyway. Love your cards.
