Anya on Ice?

Not really!

Hey everyone!   Thankfully it's been the furthest thing from icy here as it's been in the mid to upper 70's this week and GORGEOUS!

One of my best friends in the world Darla is here and I am SO super excited to have been able to hang out with her!   We have lots to share, but for now I will show you this week's DIEDRICH DARE card!   This week, we had an inspiration challenge...you can view that HERE.   Be sure to check out the other Daredevils blogs as they all have some wonderful eye candy for you today:

I have another SUPER special surprise as we are previewing ANOTHER new ANYA from The Greeting Farm!  Introducing.....FLAPPER ANYA!


Isn't she darling?  This dancing diva will be coming to you on Sunday, the 15th during our Anya release!  I am super excited about her as she is a LIMITED EDITION and part of our "Anya: Thru the years" Series.   Be sure to check out  the Club Anya blog to see the adorable samples of my teammates:
  I don't know what possessed me to turn her into a figure skater...perhaps it was the Glittery flapper dress (well, I made it glittery and then it reminded me of one ;) or the fact that I'm just in LOVE with my Cosmo Cricket Jolly by Golly DP, but this card came together on it's own...I'm really thinking that watching DWTS and the fact that I added glitter to her dress just made it kind of happen!   What do you think of her?  I'd love to know!



Well, in other news, Darla and I are having an AWESOME time.  We got to see Brad Paisley and Carrie Underwood yesterday morning and were SO excited about it!   We spent the rest of the day hanging out, stamping, eating lunch at the famous Loveless Cafe (OMG, Rascal Flatts was THERE when we were there but we could not see them!!), and then did some damage at the LSS in nearby Murfreesboro :)   I teach classes there and was supposed to teach last night but it got rescheduled, altho we spent a few bucks there anyway, LOL!



Thanks for stopping by today-I will see you back here tomorrow with something sweet!

Jess ;)

Cassie said...

ok - you are so lucky getting to go to the cma's! i'm a little green girlfriend!!
this card is cute --- it must be that figure skater on her ---- all sparkly in her glitter! can you just imagine how heavy those dresses were with all the beads and sequins? No wonder they were short!!! LOL!!

Mary(OhioMary) said...

OMGosh! This is just gorgeous! It reminds me of the Holiday Skaters on ice show you see on TV with the fancy glitzed up costumes. And boy the coloring and Dazzle on this Anya is amazing. Those rosie cheeks really make her come to life. LOVE the blue scene and that felt snowflake.

Lisa Hjulberg said...

I'm loving all the new Anyas and Ians... especially this little flapper girl and the spa set! What a darling card you have here... it really looks all cold and icy. Like you, we are still having spring weather here in So Cal. I think I've forgotten what it's like to be cold!

And how fun to see Brad Paisley and Carrie Underwood. I have a couple of her CD's.

Hugs,
Lisa
