Special friend

Mornin' folks!

I'm heading out the door to work but I wanted to get this card up before I leave.
It's a just-for-fun card that I whipped up last night to play with the new stamps that arrived in my mailbox yesterday... who doesn't love diving into new rubber?! ;)

Because I wanted this new TGF Lounge Miss Anya cutie to have both of her big beautiful eyes to be showing I slightly altered her by wiping away her winking eye before stamping and used an open eye from one of the others to trace onto her face with my light box (if you want to see this technique in action check here and here).
I love these newest additions to the Miss Anya line and can see getting a lot of use out of them both 'as is' and even doing some head swapping to let a couple of the past Miss Anyas look cool in these funky outfits too. The wheels are definitely turning! :)

Alrighty, hope you all are enjoying a wonderful weekend... later gators! Supply list:
cardstock- Bazzill and Copic X-Press It
stamp- The Greeting Farm (Miss Anya Lounge set)

She looks super cute with both eyes open! Great layout, and I love Kiara's perfectly matched ribbon!

Awe. I like her a lot better with both eyes open. She was my fave out of the all but I wasn't fond of the only 1 eye open. You made her look fabulous!!!! Great Job!
Hugs, Heidi Brawley
