SWEET Monday Surprise...



Hey everyone!

I'm back with another preview from The Greeting Farm!  Did you all happen to check out the Club Anya & Friends blog over the weekend to see the ADORABLE new "Oh, Boy" Ian previewed with the Saturday Sketch Challenge?   He's so cute!   Well we've got a SUPER SWEET counterpart to show off to you today...

INTRODUCING...SWEET ANYA!

I had a blast trying out a new distressing technique to take a few scraps of paper and piece them onto a card.  Totally channeling my girl Mercy while her, Pam and I enjoyed our little getaway weekend...more on that tomorrow!!!!  The paper is Delovely by Cosmo Cricket and I'd say it's de-lovely indeed!  :)

As for the SWEET stamp-You may remember this little 'sweetie' from the Design-your-Anya contest a few months back!  Sweet Anya is the brainchild of Barbara Sproat, who just happens to be joining us today for today's preview!   Please check out her creation and leave her some love!  Without her, today wouldn't be as SWEET by any means :)

What's more?  Barbara is GIVING AWAY a SWEET ANYA to one lucky commenter on her blog today, so be sure to visit and tell her how SWEET her design is!

And while you're at it, hop on over to the other DT's blogs because there are TWO MORE Sweet Anyas hidden away somewhere and you JUST MIGHT WIN one!
Well, I'll see you tomorrow for a MTSC you won't want to miss, and then I'll be back on Wednesday with our "SWEET SEPTEMBER" Blog Hop with The Greeting Farm!  Have a VERY sweet day, everyone!
