Do You Wanna Dance?

Happy Wednesday everyone!

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!!!
As I stated earlier tonight is the big blog hop for Club Anya! Official rules can be found here! And don't forget there are some awesome prizes as well! I am cutting and pasting them so you can see what is up for grabs!

Also here is the "somewhat official" list of the AWARDS (each eligible for a prize that night!) to be given out for our BLOG HOPPIN' BASH on the 15th:

1.) "Best in Show". This will be given to the favorite Blog entry that night and will be voted on by YOU! All you have to do is email me the link to your favorite card, and yes you can vote for yourself if you choose. Just make sure you vote for your favorite...who you really think stole the show! Entries must be received via email by 9:45PM CST the night of the Blog Hop.

2.) "The Wild Child". This award will be given to the entry that is the wildest, most outrageous or creative use of Anya or Ian stamps and voted on by Marie, Jessica, and Team Anya.

3.) "Smokin' Hot". No, NOT Paris Hilton's "that's hot"'s gotta be SMOKIN' hot! This award will be given out to the card or item that showcases a really hot trend in stamping or crafting. Uses a cool new technique, tool, embellishment, etc. We will throw all the entries that we think qualify for this award into a "hat" and draw one random winner that night!

4.) "A Change will do you Good". Go ahead, switch it up! This award will be given to the entry who best showcases the non- traditional. Whether you switch it up and turn Anya into Ian, Ian into Anya, Anya or Ian into WHOEVER...the morph-ier the better! Judged by Marie, Jess, and the fantabulous Team Anya and announced that night!

Thanks everyone for stopping by and hanging out with me today! Hope to see you back here tonight where I will sneak peek the final stamp for this month's release! Smiles!
