Club Anya Holiday Blog Hop!!!!

I have been looking forward to tonight since the announcement was made a couple weeks ago about the public blog hop. I love these stamps and was so excited to be a small part of the release - I've been seriously lacking in the stamping dept lately but wow, I think I've finally found my groove again. I didn't have time to stamp this weekend so I stamped ALL day today getting ready for tonight! LOL I hope you enjoy the projects I've made:

First, I want to make some gifts for Tolla's teachers as it's her first year of school and she's just done so great -- she absolutely loves school & talks about her teachers all the time. There are five that rotate around the preschool classes so here are the cards I made to go with their little gifts. I used this weeks Taylord Expressions Sketch Challenge and it also follows this week's TGF Farm Fresh Friday challenge KISS. Check out both places for great inspiration.

I also made this to hold some of the home made fudge I made last night. Oh my GAWD, it's good. I've been stealing pieces here and there all day (*blush*). I never knew making fudge was so easy!!! What a great gift to give someone. I love Flutter Anya - she was one of the FIRST anya's I bought earlier this year. I thought it would be cute to color her up with some Christmasy colors and put Ian's little santa hat on her head. I've seen this done with other anya's & thought it was adorable to dress them up for the holidays so I just had to try it!

And last, I made this Jr Legal Notepad (I know, it's not an Anya, LOL) but it's an adorable sprout and since I totally missed out on the Anya Elf, I had no choice...See my previous posts for a link to how to make the Jr Legal Notepads.

Thank you so much for stopping by tonight!!! I hope you enjoyed my little projects and will have fun on the rest of the hop - I'm sure there are some AMAZING projects and cards to be seen, I can't wait to see myself. I always find myself in awe with the talent of TGF fans! Plus the sneak peeks of the release tomorrow looks adorable as always!!
