I Wanna Be Just Like...


... so many people, but today they wanna be just like me! Hello everyone! I could not believe it when I woke up this morning to find an email from Jessica Diedrich, Vice President and DT Coordinator Extraordinaire of Club Anya saying I had been selected to be CASED for this weekend's I Wanna Be Just Like... challenge! I tell ya, I am so very flattered, you just cannot know how much. Anyone who knows me knows that I am a HUGE fan of The Greeting Farm. Just when I think Marie has surely reached the peak in style and originality, she goes even higher with release after release of the most amazing art. I am continually in awe... and at the front of the checkout line with every new release! In fact, I think my new stamps should be in today's mail...

I had planned to share this card with you today anyway, but now it's extra special. No, it's not the one to be CASED (you need to click on over to the Challenge Post to see that one), but it is one of the cards I submitted when I recently tried out for a coveted Gardener spot for The Greeting Farm. I didn't make it this time, but I will definitely try again. Like I told Jessica, I'm a firm believer that God leads us where we're meant to go just in the right time, and this just means it isn't the right time for me. It in no way diminishes how much I LOVE TGF and all things Anya and Ian and Wild Spouts and Hope and Grace and all the cute animal stamps... it's all great!!!



The design call required that we create a card with a circus theme, so I came up with what I call Circus Girl! That's Dahlia riding the pony from McSplendid Farm. They are all glittered up with my atYouSpica pens and center stage at the circus! I'm showing you two views so that you can see the dimension I created with pop dots to lift the curtains and the images. The paper is Cosmo Cricket.

I actually like this card so much, I've got it displayed in my craft room. It just makes me smile when I look at it. I hope it does you, too.

Thanks so much for stopping by today! Be sure to go on over and participate in the Club Anya challenge! (P.S. The funny thing about the card to be CASED is that it's one of the first I ever made with TGF stamps. I remember falling in love with a card made by Cindy Haffner using that stamp set and I had to buy it. I'm so glad I did!)
