Farm livin' is the life for me

Well, from the looks of this card it is the life for Anya anyway, LOL!

Hello again, yes I'm back with another card and this one is for today's Monday Mania challenge hosted by the fabulously fun miss Lisa! She has come up with a fantastic recipe challenge that is called, "Getting odd with shapes" and you are to put together a card using 1 rectangle (my gingham frame), 3 squares (the farm yard and sentiment papers) and 5 circles (my multicolor buttons). Right away I knew just the papers and Anya that I wanted to pair with this design so that, combined with the recipe, made for a really quick card that positively flew together. And I will confess that I actually have the October Afternoon Farm Fresh stamp set which includes this pig image but I was going for quick and easy so rather than color up more stamped images I opted for stickers... shock, horror, LOL! ;)
I gotta say that I am in love with this Country Anya digi... the braided pigtails, those smilie eyes and her stylin bib overalls are just too stinkin' cute! I SO hope that she sees rubber someday soon... fingers crossed and double crossed! :)

Alrighty, I really hope that you all get a chance to play with us over at CA&Friends this week!

TTYL!
