So sweet of you

Morning friends!

I've got a quick post today as I'm busy, busy, busy with all sorts of different things... some work, some fun... you know how it goes. ;)

So the Farm Fresh Friday challenge over at TGF is "Body Snatchers", sounds ominous doesn't it? LOL! Actually it is a fun altering challenge to swap heads between different TGF stamps, giving them a whole new look. How in the world could I pass this one up? I LOVE playing around with the TGF stamps and giving them new personalities. They really do have the versatility of paper dolls that way, which is so much fun. :)
For my card I took Dressy Miss Anya's body and replaced her head with Love Miss Anya's beautiful bright eyed face. It was such a simple swap but I love that this is an easy way to give my new Miss Anya open eyes without having to wipe away ink and trace in new eyes using the light box. And doesn't she look right at home perched on that sentiment strip... such a cutie!

Alrighty, time for me to jet. I hope your week is off to a great start! :) Supply list:
cardstock- Bazzill and Copic X-Press It
paper- The Girls' Paperie (Vintage Whimsy)
stamps- The Greeting Farm (Miss Anya Love and Miss Anya Dressy), Paper Trey Ink (sentiment)

Hi Amy. Thanks for the heads up yesterday. I was going crazy. lol...Your card is so adorable. I just knew that you would be making something wonderful this week. I love her and I love your flower from the trim that you used. It so looks like it has a green stem from the paper. Have a great Monday. Hugs, Lisa
