Fancy Anya

Welcome to the third day of previews from The Greeting Farm with Club Anya and Friends. Today we're featuring Fancy Anya and there is another chance to win this cute gal for leaving comments on all the DT blogs! In her fancy dress, this versatile Anya is ready for any occasion and I used her to create a very special girl's card.


The chipboard corner embellishments were covered with liquid pearls on the top leaving the sides the natural lasercut color for depth. Finally a pearl was added on the corner. The flowers were some I had in my stash and the lily flowers are fun because they're made out of clay for a nice texture change. I wish I could say I made them... but hey were store bought too. :D

Did you know? Baa, Baa, Black Sheep is a children's nursery rhyme that dates to 1744 published in Tommy Thumb's Pretty Song Book. Since then, the words have remained mostly intact with few changes. The rhyme is sung to a variant of the 1761 French melody Ah! vous dirai-je, Maman, which is also used for "Twinkle Twinkle Little Star" and the alphabet song. As with many nursery rhymes, attempts have been made to find origins and meanings for the rhyme, but no theories have been definitively proven. Denslow's illustration accompanied a 1901 edition of Mother Goose.
