Presenting you...

A Sweet and Sassy ... "Dressy Anya!"

Today arrived the new Anya releases at my door!! You should have seen how thrilled I was! I've been waiting for them for three weeks to arrive! All the other members of the DT have started the sneak peaks a week ago, but it really wasn't my fault! So.. to make it up, I decided to make a Sweet and Sassy set! A lovely gift to a girl who's dressy, like our Anya :) It consists of a card, and a gift box where she can be given some jewellery.. perfume.. you know.. something sweet and sassy indeed! I had fun paper piecing this lovely Anya.. it took me several hours to finish these.. but I think it was worth it!

These gorgeous Anyas (this is only one of three that the set consists of) and some more surprises, will be available on August 1st.. very near now! :) I will remind you also that the same day The Greeting Farm will be one year old! So we'll be having a double party.. including TGF DT and Club Anya Dt.. togather for the Anyaversary blog hop!! Will you join?

I will be there as well, as for these two coming months I will be Guest Designer for Club Anya. How fun!! :) Right now there are lots of things going on both on The Greeting Farm blog, and also on Club Anya.. fun contests where you can win this lovely set! WHAT are you waiting for?

I coloured these images with my Distress Reinkers, and distressed the edges using foam and Tim Holtz distressing ink pads. The edges of the matted images were cut with a circle punch; while the heart border (yes I used it again :)) is from Fiskars. As embellishments I added some ribbon, rhinestones, and I also added some Papermania and Prima flowers, topped with vintage buttons. I love the effect on the red colour.The sentiments are partly computer generated, and the "Sassy" word is a rub on.

If you look well, you may notice something new on my card and gift box.. yes.. my flowers have the branch punched cut outs!! My sweet, gorgeous friend Iris sent me this lovely punch (with some other lovely goodies) for my Birthday! Yay!! Thank you Iris hunny.. you really made my day with these! :)

Now I'm off to have some hours of sleep, cause I have only one day left to prepare for the Big Anyaversary celebration!!! :)

Thanks for looking
