A new Anya is blossoming...

on the farm!

Hello and welcome to the first day of TGF sneak peeks for the May release! And can I just say we are hitting the ground running with this one! ;)

First off I'd like to welcome Rachel as our CA guest DT for May! Rachel will be joining us for all the fun this month and you won't want to miss checking out her fab cards!

Now please let me introduce you to the lovely miss Fleur Anya... isn't she just a breath of fresh spring air? Sigh... I love her... yep I'll say it, as soon as I saw sweet little Fleur she jumped straight to the top of my list for all-time most FAVORITE Anya stamp ever! Marie has truly outdone herself with this one and I couldn't be more delighted with this fabulous new cutie! I know, I know... it's hard to believe that Flutter has been de-throned but Fleur has got it all... girly poofy dress, check... long flowing hair, check... fun hair accessories, check... and the real clincher... those smilie eyes! :)

So if you've fallen in love with Fleur like I have you might like to know that there is a chance at winning her today! Yep, Fleur is is hiding out on one of the DT blogs and all you have to do for a chance to win her is leave some comment love as you check out all the Fleur sneaks... easy peasy! So check out Club Anya for all the beautiful creations from my 'buds' (get it? Fleur? Flowers? Buds? Oh how I crack myself up! LOL) and links to their blogs... good luck! :)

Now for a super quick "Glee-cap" as the show just wrapped up here and I gotta get this post up... so many great one liners tonight. I love how quotable this show is. A particular fave... "You could drop the attitude, that's got to be a pound or two right there." I think it's because I can kinda relate LOL! ;)
I also liked seeing Kristin Chenoweth guesting again, the duets between April and Shue are always a delight. But most of all was the Kurt/Finn and their parents storyline that I really found touching. I admit it, I had to wipe away a little tear when each of them had their talks with their respective parents. Oh my little Kurt... how my heart goes out to him.
Yep, this episode was another winner with me! :)
