HAPPY ANYAVERSARY!

Today is the big day and I'm ready to celebrate! Now I may have only found The Greeting Farm a few months ago but as soon as I saw my first Anya stamp (Flutter to be exact) I was hooked. Marie's amazing designs are so much fun to play with and I find myself eagerly awaiting each new release. I also have to say that The Greeting Farm community has to be one of the friendliest I've ever come across. And the talent... wowzers! There is so much inspiration going up in that gallery every day, it's amazing!
So in honor of the big day I have made a little window card with Anya getting ready to blow out the candle and make a wish for many more anyaversaries to come. :)
