Like..... Totally!

Happy Sunday!

Sorry I am so late with my post. We were out all day yesterday and didn't get back until really late. We had a nice day. We went to the library, then shopping and finally had a visit with Aunt Beth. Needless to say Izzy was super tired by the time we got back as were her parents.

I have to tell you the funniest story though. This morning, I got Izzy up and took her into lay down with Jason and I. Tuxy had jumped down and was whining at the door. I told Izzy that he must want to come jump on the bed and that she needed to call him. She then put her hand up to her ear and said, "Hello Tuxy. Blah, blah, blah. Bye." SHE CALLED HIM ON THE PHONe!!!!!!!!!!!!! OMGoodness, Jason and I cracked up!!! It was just too, too funny!!!!

So I know why you are here. You want to see a little Anya sneak peek! Well this one is like totally rad! You guessed it! She is Eighties Anya!!!! Leg warmers and all!!!! She is a limited edition and will only be available until she runs out so make sure you pick yours up quickly!!!

How cute, cute, cute is her hair!!!! Oh my word!!! I love her!!! I so want this outfit! So I started this card by first coloring Eighties Anya by The Greeting Farm on white card stock and colored her in using my copics. Following this week's Mojo Monday sketch, I layered on purple and teal card stock along with DP from Kaiser and Papertrey Ink. I then added some buttons and ribbon and printed off the sentiment on my computer. My finishing touch is a bit of gold sparkle tulle Jason's grandma gave me! She is always giving me the best stuff!

So now Go - Go and check out the awesome DT's creations!
Thanks for stopping by! Oh and as a parting gift I leave you with a picture of me from the 80's (I'm the one with the hat). Still waiting for my parents to scan the one where I had big hair! Smiles!

Too Cool For School!

Happy Saturday everyone!!!

Hope your week has been a good one. Jason was at the baseball game last night with a friend so Tracy decided to come over. We had a lot of fun watching Project Runway and catching up on things. Of course when it was time for bed Izzy only had eyes for Aunt Tracy. Tracy started her bath for me and when I went in to over see the operation, Izzy kicked me out!!!! Seriously, she told me to leave and that she would give me huggies and kisses later. I then tried to extract a story from her but she told me that Aunt Tracy would do it. I have been replaced!!!! LOL! I told Tracy that she only has eyes for her!

Well, what did you think of yesterday's sneak peeks for Club Anya? Too cute right!!!! Today I have something that you all have been waiting for, for a long time. I actually asked Marie months ago if she was going to do this set and she said, "No." Big faker!!!!!! Just kidding! It is my pleasure to introduce you to My Guy Ian!!!!!

That's right, now Miss Anya has someone to go out with!!!! Ohhhh would it be too weird to make them into paper dolls and have them live in a dream house and go out on dates together, you know like Barbies????? Come on, that was my favorite thing to do as a kid! But I digress, I started my card by first stamping one of the guys from My Guy Ian by the Greeting Farm (Available Tuesday!!!!) on white card stock and colored him in using my copics. I drew the sidewalk and grass with my multiliner pen and colored them in with my copics. Following this week's Farm Fresh Friday sketch, I layered on red and blue card stock along with DP from Little Yellow Bicycle and DCWV. To complete my card, I used my spiral border punch, created a stop sign out of nestabilities and added some twine for interest. Maybe I can give it to one of the boys next door who will be starting a new school in a couple of months.

Now it is time for you to go check out the rest of the amazing DT's creations!!!! Wow, wow, wow!!!
Tune in tomorrow for a totally radical sneak peek! Smiles!

Honor, Respect, Teamwork!

Happy Friday everyone!!!!!

Hope everything is okay with you guys. Sorry it has been such a long time since I posted. This house selling thing is pretty stressful and I felt like I lost my mojo. I have taken a little time off and now I finally feel like my juices are flowing! Yay!!!!! So, so excited!!! Don't forget, if you want to move to St. Louis, I have the perfect house for you! LOL!

Well Izzy is absolutely loving school! She especially loves the art part I think. Yesterday they made friendship wreaths and she carried hers all around the house and even hung it on the front door! She keeps asking Jason what all the words say on the hands. Too cute!!! OHHHH and big news! She has started potty training!!!! Yay!!!! I figured out the key to getting her to go. Nope not candy, not books, it is washing her hands! Yep, I just tell her she can wash her hands if she goes and now she goes about every 10 minutes. What have I started! LOL!

So today is Friday and that means it is the first day of Sneak Peeks for Club Anya!!!!!!! OMGoodness I can't believe how quickly these six months have gone by! It has been so much fun and I can hardly wait to see what the new team has in store for us as well! (Tearing up!) Anywhoo, my first sneak peek is sure to get your camp fires burning! It is my honor to introduce you to Anya from Cute Troop!!!!

How perfect is she!!!!! OMgoodness I love her! And it could not have been more perfect timing as my niece is a girl scout and her younger sister is just enrolling in Daisies!!!! Thank you Marie!!! I can hardly wait to make them cards! And wouldn't she be the cutest on boxes of girl scout cookies. And Ian in the set would be so great to encourage people to donate to the can food drive. Oh the ideas are flowing!!!!!! So I started this card by first stamping Anya from Cute Troop by The Greeting Farm (RELEASED TUESDAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!) on white card stock and colored her in using my copics. I created the tent with some black card stock and some DP from The Greeting Farm's Sunny Glenn paper pack. I then added some rocks I created with some gray card stock and my copics, trees I created with green card stock and copics and finally a sign I hand drew with a brown pen and stamped with one of the sentiments from Cute Troop. I finished the card off by popping off my Anya and adding a twig to the top. I hope my niece likes it!

And now it is time for you to check out the rest of the teams amazing creations! They will really knock your socks off!
See you back here tomorrow for some chill sneak peeks! Smiles!
