Hippity hoppity Easter is on its way

Is it too early to say that?

You won't think so when you see who's re-joining the Farm this Monday... ;)
That's right, today we are previewing the brand new RUBBER Easter Anya over at Club Anya and I totally adore her... I think it must be those curly pig tails. :)

I didn't become a 'friend of the farm' until after this little cutie had already come and gone as a limited edition digital stamp last year and I was always totally bummed that I might never add her to my collection. But after dropping many not-so-subtle hints and much begging and pleading I was thrilled to see Marie grant mine, and I'm sure many others, wish for Easter to be brought back! Give me a woot, woot!

And even though I've warmed up a bit to digital stamps, an actual rubber stamp will always be my true love so that makes this Easter Anya even sweeter to me. Sigh... I'm just a happy, happy girl now. :)

I've also added a little butterfly to my card today so that I can enter it into this week's Quixotic Challenge to use, well, butterflies. :)

Alrighty, that's it from me today... be sure to head on over to Club Anya to see all the Easter sweetness my fellow CADT have created, it will make you long for spring!

Toodles!

WOOT, WOOT! Amy she is just so cute! I so want it to be the weekend, but now I really can not wait for Monday to get here..... I love how you colored her and her little basket reminds me so much of ones that I rec'd when I was little. :D I so very much love you daffodils. They just pop off the page, and there is not mistaking what they are. Great job my friend, Lisa

She's adorable! Although I'm still intimidated by the idea of rubber stamps (I feel sure I'll smudge!), and wished she'd come back in digi too!
