Happy Tuesday everyone!!!
Hope your week has started off well. I have to say it is absolutely stunning here! OMGoodness spring has finally arrived and I am so, so excited. Izzy was even out yesterday planting flowers with Jason it was so beautiful! She has a new obsession, flowers. Everytime she steps outside with Jason she wants to plant flowers or go to the store and look at flowers/plants. It is so cute! I am really glad that they have something so wonderful to share with one another. In fact I called yesterday to see what the two of them were doing (I had a doctor's appointment to go to) and Jason told me they were outside and that Izzy was sitting on his lap helping him plant! Isn't that sweet! I wish I had been home to see it! I always miss the good ones!
Well, I know what you all are here for and I won't keep you in suspense any longer! Today is day one of the sneak peeks for the new Anya and Ian Stamps from The Greeting Farm! We are kicking off a week of fun and games here and that will culminate in a Virtual STamp Night Luau on Thursday and the release of all the new stamps!!!! Doesn't that sound exciting! I can hardly wait! And since you probably can't either, I present to you Hula Anya!!!
Could you not just die!!!!! I mean the beautiful hair, the way her arms are positioned!!! OMGoodness she is the cutest! I so want to be in Hawaii now! Of course I would love to go to Hawaii anytime (never been there) but this makes me want to go even more! So I started this card by first stamping Hula Anya by The Greeting Farm on white card stock and colored her in using my copics. Next I added some fiber from Basic Grey to the skirt to make it look like a real hula skirt and prima flowers to the hair. I would love to say that the flowers were my idea but alas they were not!!! My great friend and Club Anya VP, Jess, actually came up with the idea and I just had to copy her! It was so cool! For the layout itself, I used last week's Taylored Expressions Cupcake Challenge and layered on yellow and green card stock along with DP from Imaginisce. I created the wave with my new EK Success punch and tied a yellow ribbon around it. To complete my card, I added three flowers to the corner, stuck black rhinestones in the centers of all of them and hand wrote, "Aloha" in the bottom corner! Hopefully a very tropical and fun card!
Now it is time to visit the rest of the DT's amazing creations! Not only are these woman unbelievably talented but they are also the sweetest people you would ever want to know!
