Sweet Anya

Welcome everyone to this very "sweet" blog hop hosted by The Greeting Farm! It has been so much fun to make cards using Sweet Anya. However, I gotta tell you, the pressure was so immense that I ended up with a few extras... so I'll also show them off this week!


It's hard to tell in the picture but I used glitter on her shirt, shoes and hair clip which gives the card an extra sparkle boost! The next card below is created by my Mom. The one thing better than spending a day stamping is spending it with your best friend! She also created a few cards using Sweet Anya and I'll be sharing those with you this week too. It will be a double bonus!


What's more? I'm giving away one of these Sweet Anya rubber stamps right here to one lucky commenter! You have until 11:59pm CST tonight to leave your comment on this post. A big thank you to The Greeting Farm for sponsoring this prize!

And while you're at it, continue on with the hop because there are two more Sweet Anya stamps hidden away somewhere to win! Here is the complete blog hop list:


Main Stamp: Sweet Anya (TGF)
Patterned Paper: Mod-Retro (DCWV)
Copic Colors:
-skin: E000, E00, E11, R20
-hair: R20, R22, R24, R27
-clothes: R20, R22, YR20, YR21, YR23, B91, B93, B95

Did you know? The concept for Sweet Anya was created by me and entered into the Design Your Own Anya contest over at The Greeting Farm. It made the top five selections then votes were cast and it won! It was then refined by the wonderful artist Marie and created into a rubber stamp. Woo hoo! How fun it's been to be a part of that process - thanks everyone!
