Singing In The Rain!

Happy Monday everyone!

Boy am I tired. Not that I am complaining but it has been one crazy week last week and I just got back yesterday. My aunt just had her 30th anniversary celebration and my mom, dad, sister and I threw her a huge bash at my parents. There was a ton of laughing and eating overall good times but now I am tuckered out! It was all I could do not to fall asleep at 7 o'clock last night! LOL!

Jason and Izzy decided to stay home since the house was going to be really crowded and people were staying up so late. It actually worked out for the best but I sure did miss my baby! I haven't ever been away from her for two nights in a row so it was a little tough. Izzy and Jason had a great time though. They gardened and went to the plant store and even had a little dinner date with Izzy's friend Melaina!

Now with some important news from Club Anya!!!!!!

I have a VERY special sneak peek for you today from Club Anya and The Greeting Farm...a BRAND NEW Miss Anya set is going to be released on the 15th of this month! How exciting is that???

Even better? ONE lucky winner is going to receive this stamp set when the contest ends on Thursday evening. The WINNER will be announced THIS Friday, May 1st..that's almost TWO whole weeks before the actual release by the time the mailman delivers it!!!

All you have to do is play along with our little game this week! Head on over to the Club Anya blog to THIS post to start the game and to go over the official rules:

You will need to stop by certain Team Member's blogs on certain days to be given a series of clues. The official schedule is posted on the Club Anya blog. Each team member will be giving you a special sneak peek of this ADORABLE new set, and a clue for you, in the form of a letter in the alphabet.

Once you have collected ALL FOUR clues, you will have to DESCRAMBLE the letters to form a word. Once you guess what the word is, you will have until Thursday, April 30th, 2009 at 8pm CST to email Jessica with your guess. At that time, all of the correct guesses will be entered into a contest to WIN the BRAND NEW MISS ANYA SET!!!

Ready to play!!!!!

Here is my sneak peek of the new set!!!!


IsN't she the cutest!!!! I mean how could you resist her! I started my card by stamping one of the new Miss Anya's from The Greeting Farm on white card stock and colored her in using my copics. I then mounted her on some coral and brown paper and following a sketch from Taylored Expressions (The one our fearless leader Jessica used this week seeing as how she was the featured stamper!!!!!!), I layered on brown, green and coral card stock along with DP from Basic Grey's porcelain line. I finished up my card by embossing my circle with swiss dots, tied on a brown ribbon and added lots of crystal effects and sparkle to resemble rain drops! Hope you like it!

Did you get your clue!! Make sure you collect them all!!!

Thanks so much for stopping by! Smiles!!!
