Greeting Farm Friday - It's a BOY!

It's Friday - my favorite day of the week cuz it means the weekend is here and I get to show you my TGF creation. This week is particularly special b/c not only was the PERFECT Anya released yesterday, but I also found out on Wed that our baby due in Feb is a BOY!!! We have two little girls so this is very exciting. Not to mention I was driving my hubby crazy the past 5 months b/c ALL I would look at was boy stuff and blue paint for the nursery so I'm glad that I was RIGHT. haha Now, I can look to my hearts content and really start planning the room transformation from baby girl to baby boy.
Ok, on to my project, I knew I wanted to use Mama Anya and got this fabulous star chipboard album from my dear friend Angela and started to alter it for a little mini album for once my son arrives. I also got to play with my new Glimmer Mist and O-M-G I LOVEY this stuff WAYYYY to much. I am going to have to save up so I can get more and more colors. This was much too fun to play with and only have one color. *giggle* I colored Anya using Copics - I also have to admit, I am loving the way Anya's hair turned out. Still working that technique out - I'm just not as naturally gifted as some of you out there! Or maybe it's b/c I only play once a week. LOL Now, if only I looked as good as her. I almost posted a belly pic for you - but was not pleased with the way they turned out (stupid double chin) so not happening!

Playing with new goodies & a challenge

So, this week, I got a bunch of new goodies. Well, a bunch for me, haha, I don't spend a lot on supplies, but I just can't resist sometimes. I finally broke down and bought a Papertrey Ink set - one of their Sept releases that were oh so cute for Christmas and then I got some fun holiday DP and even got some grungeboard to play with that I've been ooogling for sometime now. So, I mixed it all up and put it on a card for Mojo Monday on a Sunday night, LOL.

Here it is, hope you likey:

The happy holidays DP is from making memories Misteltoe. I love this paper. Plan on using it for a good portion of Christmas cards I will be making. The snowflake is grungeboard covered with crackle paint in picket fence. The tree & happy holidays sentiment is from PTI. Love it!!! Thanks for looking!!! Hoping to get some more play time in tonight.

I'm late for TGF Friday!

Hi! Sorry for the late post - but I had a prenatal appointment this morning and forget to set my blog to autopost!!!

As soon as I saw this cute Keep Cozy set by TGF, I couldn't wait to ink them up and get them on a card. I LOVE LOVE LOVE snowmen stamps. These are possibly my favorite now.

I'm not much for giving details, but he's colored with copics, and has some fun fluff on his ear muffs (I couldn't resist!) Hope you like:

The Greeting Farm Friday!

Always ever excited for The Greeting Farm Friday but this week I am SUPER excited. I colored one of my favorite Anya's this week - Dress Me Anya. Now, I've loved this Anya and have had her for a few months but never inked her up. Do you ever love a stamp so much that you're afraid to use it?! LOL Well, I get that way. Like I don't want to mess it up or something. But when I finally worked up the courage to ink her up, oh man, am I loving the result! LOL I started the card out using Joni's color challenge from last week of pink, black and white but then when I finished I realized that the challenge was in fact, a rule of 3's and I didn't have the right amount of embellishments, haha. Ahhh, details. I'm always overlooking the details. I also used this sentiment from Stamping Bella that I got in a swap - I thought it was fitting with the way I colored her hair. As you can see, she's wearing Ian's shirt and I colored her legs to look like leggings. I added some glitter to the leggings with my clear glitter pen. So, anyway, loving the color combo - here she is, hope you likey:
