Well yesterday was one of those horribly dreary days where all you want to do is sleep and lay around and do nothing! Seriously it was hard to get out of bed! It was either raining or simply cold and cloudy. Even Izzy was tired pretty much all day long! Poor baby, but good for me as we both cuddled for half an hour when she first woke up!
Well my sweet daughter has learned a new phrase (thanks Aunt Tracy) that she repeats constantly! Now every time I turn around she is looking and saying, "How 'bout that!" OMGoodness it is so hard to keep a straight face. Literally she was feeding Tuxy her crackers and apples yesterday afternoon, and when he accidentally dropped one on the floor she said, "How 'bout that?" It was too cute! Oh and she did the absolute sweetest thing yesterday! Usually she goes down for her afternoon nap around 2 and sleeps for a couple of hours. Well around 12:30 she came up and asked, "Daddy home soon?" So I looked at her and told her that he would be home after she woke up from her nap. So she looked at me for a minute and then said, "Izzy night, night." So I asked her if she wanted to go to bed and she said, "please!" How cute! She just loves her daddy so much!
As I said above, it is showtime at The Greeting Farm! Are you excited!!! Weren't yesterday's sneak peeks just amazing? I mean the DT girls rocked the sets! Well today it is time to sneak peek the newest Anya set called It's Showtime! And let me tell you it is the cutest set ever! Are your ready?!
What did I tell you! Isn't Anya as the circus master the cutest! So, so adorable! And there are some great accessories and sentiments as well! I started this card by cutting out a popcorn container shape in red and white card stock. I then scalloped the edge with my fiskars punch and cut the red card stock into strips. I adhered the strips onto the front of the card so that it would look like the front of a popcorn container, then adhered my second sheet of white card stock to the back to create a pouch for my card to slide into. To decorate the front of my card, I stamped ringmaster Anya from It's Showtime by The Greeting Farm on white card stock and colored her in using my copics and a gold glitter pen. Next I cut her out and adhered her to the bottom. To create the whip in her hand, I cut out a small strip of black card stock and then attached some more black scrappers floss (Thanks Michelle!). The tickets were made by cutting out red strips of card stock, using my slot punch on the ends and adhering them to black card stock. I stamped the sentiment and stars from It's Showtime in blue and black ink then drew in the numbers. For the insert, I cut out pieces of white and black card stock slightly smaller than the inside of my container but longer so that I would have something to attach my popcorn too. I then punched out lots of yellow flowers with a flower punch I have had forever, placed them around the top and then added a lot of glitter. I just think this would make a really fun birthday card!

As you can see I am really into these concept cards! LOL! I decided to fudge a little on the layout and use the branches of a tree for the bands and my Wild Things images for the stamps! I started this card by stamping the lion, the bear and the chicken from Wild Things by The Greeting Farm on white card stock and colored them in using my copics. I then cut them out and placed them to the side. For my card base, I layered on green and brown card stock along with some DP from Stampin' UP. I then free handed a tree trunk shape, added some brown lines for bark and a hole, then sponged over everything with some chocolate chip ink to give it some distressing. I cut a slit in the bottom of my hole and place the lion inside. The branches were done the same way as the trunk with two of them being attached to the page and the other two left free so I could make them swing. For those two branches, I simply attached my Wild Things, punched a hole in them and then ran a brad through the center so that they could swing. I placed the tree trunk on pop dots so that the branches could swing freely. I then completed my tree by adding some extra thinner branches and leaves I cut out with my nesties. For the rest of the card, I simply added three brads in the corner, printed out a sentiment on the computer, cut it out with my nesties and then attached it to my card. I think I might give this to my mom for Mother's day! LOL!
