I hope everyone is having a wonderful week so far! The sun has finally made an appearance this morning. Yesterday was just another cold and dreary day and I think Izzy is feeling a little under the weather. I got her up yesterday morning and pretty much all she did was cry. Poor baby. Nothing seemed to make her happy. I finally asked her if she wanted to go back to bed and she said, "please". Then when I actually laid her down, she pretty much kicked me out! LOL! I was rubbing her head, telling her how much a loved her and that I hoped she felt better. That is when she started waving to me and saying, "Bye, bye mommy! Bye, bye mommy!" I guess she was tired huh? LOL!
Well today is the big day! It is the release of all the awesome new stamps from The Greeting Farm and if that wasn't exciting enough, tonight is also the awesome Club Anya Blog Hop! I mean seriously could it get any better! I am just so excited!
So to wet your appetite for tonight's festivities I decided to sneak peek another of the new Anyas, Wild West Anya! I just love the little expression on her face and for some reason the way she is holding her hands I just thought she was dancing! And when you are dancing you obviously need a partner so I couldn't leave poor Sheriff Ian out! LOL!! That being said, I introduce you to, Wild West Anya!
Isn't she the cutest thing ever!! I mean that heart shaped hat and the braids! I love, love, love her!!!! I started out this card by stamping Wild West Anya and Sheriff Ian from The Greeting Farm on white card stock and colored them in using my copics. I then cut them out, distressed the edges with chocolate chip ink and a pair of scissors and mounted them on brown and green card stock. I decided to put a couple of stitches in each picture using my paper piercing tool, ruler and an old shoelace Jason's grandma gave me to put in my stash! I then mounted them at angles on my card base of brown and green card stock along with some DP from Bo Bunny. For the sentiments I simply printed them on the computer, cut them out, mounted them on brown and black card stock, sponged on chocolate chip ink and adhered them to the page. To finish the card off, I added several star buttons I picked up at Michaels!
Now it is time to check out the other DT girls' creations!!! They have been absolutely amazing!!!
