Arrrrrrrrrrr!!!

Happy Thursday everyone!!!

Hope you are having a great week! Izzy and I had an incredibly busy day yesterday. We went to Michaels twice, once to pick up something for my neighbor and then a second time to return something. It wasn't all in vane though, we actually found jars of prima flowers on sale back in the clearance section!!! Can you say stocked up! OMGoodness they are amazing! I am so happy I went!

I know I have mentioned my wonderful neighbors before and how much they do for us, so when Beth asked me to help her out on a wedding program project I did not hesitate. Of course it turned into a way bigger ordeal than either of us could foresee but it was all worth it in the end. We actually got 120 programs completed yesterday. It took a lot of printing, a lot of screaming at the computer and numb fingers from tying tiny little bows but it all worked out. Poor Izzy was even exhausted and she didn't really do anything except sit and look pretty for us! At one point though, the poor baby, she got so tired that she actually laid down next to Tanner their dog! It was so, so cute! She actually adores their dog Tanner and is always asking to go see him. In fact she asks Jason every weekend if they can go feed Tanner because a couple of weeks ago Scott and Beth were out of town and needed someone to do it! Of course now in her mind it is part of the weekend routine! LOL! I actually called Beth and told her that if she ever needs anyone to feed him don't call anyone else because Izzy would be sorely disappointed! LOL!

Well I have gabbed long enough today! I know what you all are here for! You want your daily dose of Anya and Ian sneak peeks! Well I have one for you today and Mr. Ian is one swashbuckling lad! You guessed it! Marie has created a pirate themed set for May! I would like to introduce you to Matey!


Is he not the coolest thing ever!!!!!!! I mean he looks exactly like Johnny Depp, don't you think? And that hat! Gotta Love it! So for this card, I cased this idea from Randi who created the coolest ship card you have ever seen! It has been in the back of my mind for quite awhile now and when I received this set I knew exactly what I wanted to do! I started my card off by first stamping Pirate Ian from Matey by The Greeting Farm on white card stock and colored him in with my markers. I then cut him out and placed him to the side. For the card base itself, I simply layered on brown and olive card stock and placed a piece of Making Memories Halloween paper called Spellbound, over the top. For the sails, I took a piece of cream card stock and cut it into two different sized rectangles and mounted them on black card stock. Next I distressed the edges with some black ink and stamped the sentiment and skull and crossbones from the new Matey set. I then, punched holes in the top and bottom and threaded through a thick lollipop stick I found at Michaels, making sure the center popped up a little. I adhered Ian to the center of the larger sail and created little flags out of green card stock I bent around a pencil. To complete the card, I placed some black and green buttons in the corner tied with brown scrappers floss to make it look aged. I hope you like it!

Now for the rest of the Club Anya DT girls! AMAZING!!!!! Of course they are!
And don't forget all these previewed stamps will be available tonight at Midnight CST!!!!! And to kick off all the fun, we will be having a Virtual Stamp Night over at the Club Anya PCP page!! It is going to be a night full of fun, partying and I am sure lots of talent! So make sure you join us! Thanks so much for stopping by today! Smiles!

This is another great one! Perfect coloring, and I love all of the details - the stitching around the edges, the perfect little skulls and crossbones in the corners...just wonderful! :-)Traci
