The Greeting Farm April Anyas Release and Club Anya Blog Hop

Hey Friends!! It looks like my mini album that I created for my husband has to wait! I was going to post it today but it has to play second fiddle to more important things. What's going on, Maria? Well, it's The Greeting Farm's Anya big day! Yup! It's the 15th of the month and it's the release of April's Anyas!! The stamps will be released at 10pm this evening after the Club Anya blog hop. Whoohoo! How exciting!!

Gosh, these Anyas are addicting! I gotta have them all! I created this circus scene using the "It's Showtime" Anya stamp set.

I colored Anya with my Copic Markers and added a bit of stickles to both Anya and the cute round elephant. I then cut them out and mounted the images with foam tape.


Hey, do you wanna know how I created the spotlight? Well, I took my SU white pastel and rubbed it on to black cardstock. I then smudged it with my finger and blew off the excess. I then sprayed it with a fixative so the pastel don't rub off. Simple.



Anyway, I want to chit-chat but I have too many things to do today. . .one of which is finish the laundry. It's been sitting and waiting for me to wash them . . .arrrggh! Why do we have to change clothes daily? LOL!

Hope y'all have a fantastic day and don't forget to stop by The Greeting Farm and check out the new Anyas tonight!!

Lovely cards, Maria. It looks like I have missed out on quite a few of your cards this week. :-(

I simply loved your 'fish' card from one of the previous posts. It is simply fantastic. Love the colors and what you have done with your copics... the papers...everything.

Hugs,
Smita.
