Monday Fun Day - with a very special hop!




Happy beautiful Monday everyone!
Well it is a 'hoppy' one indeed as today we celebrate TGF's blog hop with our wonderful customers!
I wanted to ink up my sweet Cheeky Mate to celebrate many of our troops coming home.
I've been there, counting down the days until my soldier returned from a deployment, 
and it is always such a wonderful and exciting time prepping for their homecoming.
I'm SO excited for all the families who will have their parent(s) home for the holidays!

This week over at our Farm Fresh Challenge Blog, we have a Monday Funday recipe:
*twine, button, and kraft cardstock*
So I made sure to use all of the above with Cheeky Mate. ;)

Now this is a fun and exciting blog hop, so be sure to get comfortable
and get ready to see some awesomeness from the friends of the Farm!
Click here to see the entire list of hoppers, 
you won't want to miss the amazing lineup of talented crafters!
Thank you for coming by everyone, happy Monday to you~
