Dreams really DO come true, with The Greeting Farm, of course!!!

Can you guess why?!?!?!

Need I say more?! ;) 
Oh My Goodness!!! You really can't imagine how floored I was when I received Jessica's email many, many, many moons ago! I was floored! Happy! Excited! and even more so that the term is finally starting!
A HUGE thank you to Marie and Jessica for choosing me! and beleiving in me to be a part of
The Greeting Farm Farm Fresh Challenge DT as Team Captain :) :) :)
Thank you!!!

I know that we have some very big shoes to fill, the last DT was super amazing and creative!
but I have a really good feeling about our new girlies! All so sweet and so talented!
and here they are! a big congrats to...
April Davis
Joni Wilson
Lisa Gobea
Sharette Smith
and of course, Jessica Diedrich our fab Creative Coordinator!

Well, let's get started on the COOL stuff :) :) :) 
Oh, and please bear/bare with me, this is going to be a somewhat long-er post!
Be sure to read all the deets ;) Thanks!!! 

So today is also WORLD CARD MAKING DAY!!!
One of the bestest holidays around, right?!
In celebration of WCMD, the new DT, AND a SCS announcement (more details about this below!)
we have a special challenge that ties in with yesterday's Farm Fresh Friday Challenge!
While the DTs cased any of Rachel's card ;)
You are to case one/any of the DTs cards! 

Here's the card I chose, one of Rachel's amazing CAS cards :) 

and here is my take on her card... 

I used Blush Society's "Blush Bonnie" and the sentiment from "Blush Babette"
It seems that the 'clean and simple' look is really growing on me lately :)

Please be sure to add your direct link to your creation to THIS TGFFFC POST!!!
You can link to your creation in the TGF Galleria, Splitcoast Stampers, Blog, etc.
