Celebrate! Celebrate!

Happy Thursday everyone!!!

Well Jason's week off is going well for the projects around the house. He is getting closer and closer every day to finishing the brick work around the pool. I have the den almost completed. The floor is installed, the walls are primed and painted, as is the ceiling and all the molding is up. Now I just need to spackle and paint, and that room will be done! What a huge relief! I was even able to finish power washing the fence. I am telling you the next house we get is not going to have as big of a back yard! LOL!

Izzy has been such a trooper through all the remodeling. She helps me a ton and grabs tools for me and is always pretending to paint or to dig in the dirt with Jason. She is so, so cute!! And yesterday she did the most adorable thing. She was sitting in the den with me while I was hammering in the molding, pretending to talk on the phone. She was holding it up and then she looked over at me and said, "I am talking on my I-phone Mommy. I need to take my I-phone." Oh My Word! It was too cute! I had to go and run outside to tell Jason. She is already social networking! LOL!

So today is definitely a day for celebration. Not only are we making progress on the house but in just a few days it will be the huge Anyaversary Party at The Greeting Farm!!!!!! I am so, so excited for the blog hop which you still have until noon today to sign up for. But of course a party wouldn't be a party without a host and boy do we have the perfect host for you!!!! It is my honor to introduce you to Birthday Anya!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

How stinkin' cute is she!!!! OMGoodness the cake hat and her gorgeous hair!! I am so in love with her!!! She just is too cute and she will be available on the First!!!!! Yippeee!!!! Anywhoo I started this card by first stamping Birthday Anya by The Greeting Farm on white card stock and colored her in using my copics. Following this week's Sketch For You To Try, I layered on brown, pink and green card stock along with NEW Paper from The Greeting Farm which will also be available on the 1st!!! It is so cute isn't it!!! I did slightly alter the sketch and added some birthday candles and rhinestones in the corner. To finish the card off, I added the sentiment from Butterfly Wishes by The Greeting Farm in the other corner.

Now it is time to check out the rest of the DT's amazing creations! And please help me in welcoming our guest designer for this month, Rosette!
Thanks everyone for stopping by! Smiles!

She is indeed too cute :D. Your coloring is as always out of this world, Janna. Wow, you have been one busy bee here getting all of this remodeling done. I hope it all turns out good for you. When do you find the time to stamp in all of this hard work on the house? Plus, you have a toddler, my DD, well, the one that is home with me, she is 4 and I can't get any painting or anyhting done with her around :D:D. She loves to craft like mommy ;D this is about the only time I can get her to be quiet and not getting into everything :D:D:D. Hugs, Sabrina
