Thank you so much

Hello again!

I know, I know... two Greeting Farm cards in a row, craziness! But with the new stamps sitting on my desk Awareness Anya here proved irresistible. Plus I wanted to get a card made for the Farm Fresh Friday challenge as well. This week the challenge is to make a 'thank you' card which I find are always good to have on hand. And yes, I altered Anya a bit. At first I was going to do a head swap with another Anya but quickly realized I wanted to try and keep her cute dress intact. So I wiped away the awareness ribbon before stamping and then drew in her missing dress bodice and skirt with a handy dandy Copic multiliner. By doing that I got a more generic and very versatile little Anya for my card.

I didn't start with any particular papers in mind so I grabbed a bag of scraps without looking and challenged myself to find something in it to use. Luckily I came across these old October Afternoon papers that inspired me to give Anya a blue dress. I don't work with blues a whole lot but I'm lovin' how this all came together. Plus it was a nice contrast to the red hair that I had already given her. ;)

Ok, time for me to scoot my boot.

Well Amy blogger is giving me grief when I try to leave you my comment, so I hope you don't get it twice. I think that Anya looks adorable on your card and her hair is just gorgeous! I love the design of your card and I hope it would be ok with you it I used it to make a few 'Thank You' cards for my friend to send to her family. Hope you had a great day. Hugs, Lisa
