Anyaversary Blog Hop!!!

Today is The Greeting Farm's First Birthday, and they are celebrating in a big way!!! Not only are there lots (I think 8) new releases, but also a MEGA Blog Hop. The list of participating blogs is posted on the Club Anya blog and on The Greeting Farm blog, so be sure to check in there and then hop, hop, hop around to see some awesome and inspiring eye candy! They promise that there are surprises to be had throughout the day, so don't miss it!

The Blog Hop challenge was to make a birthday card, layout or 3D project using any TGF stamp. For my card I used Teacher Anya...I cut the apple out of her hand and used a cute cupcake brad instead. The cardstock, DP and brads are all from the Taylored Expressions Cupcakes Key Ingredient Kit. I colored Anya with my Copics (of course). I also followed the Mojo Monday Week 97 Sketch.

I know a little girl who is turning 5 this month. I think I'm going to save this card for her!

Before you hop on to the next blog, check this out:

Yep, it's true!!! I was one of the grand prize winners!!! I've been on Cloud 9 ever since I found out yesterday morning. It's like winning the stamping lottery!!!

And this is what I won:

The Grand Prize:
Entire Aug Birthday release!!!
1 Dirty Rodeo paper pack
1 Sunny Glen paper pack
• Your choice 5 Anya single stamps
• Your choice 5 Ian single stamps
• Your choice 5 full stamp sets

Unbelievable. I'm still pinching myself. I'm in stamping heaven, that's for sure! And I can't thank Marie enough for this wonderful prize package. I love her stamps, I love her blog, I love everything about The Greeting Farm and Club Anya!

Thanks for stopping by for a visit today! And don't forget my Challenge for a Sunday Afternoon. There's still time to play!
