I have a little Anya in me...

Yep, if you've been to the Club Anya blog this morning it's official... I made the team! I can't put into words how beyond excited I have been since getting the news from Jessica, it's like I'm in a dream and I need to be pinched or something. First I want to thank each and every one of you for all your kind words and support that you have given me here, it means the world to me, truly. :) I honestly believe we have one of the friendliest, most amazing communities at TGF and CA and I feel very blessed to be a part of it all.
I'm excited to take on this new adventure with Jess, Marie and these super talented ladies;
Kelly Booth
Kim Costello
Pam Varnell
Suzi McKenzie
and Lysa Rohrer
This is also a bit bittersweet for me as I will definitely miss the awesome ladies from the first Club Anya team. I have to give a special shout out to Traci in particular... her creativity and amazing coloring skills have been such an inspiration to me from the get go. She does altering that totally make me jealous in a "why didn't I think of that?" kind of way. ;) I really hope she continues to share her beautiful cards with us because I can't imagine a TGF without her there!
Ok, I guess I should be wrapping things up for the day... oh and for those of you who asked about how I did the dress on yesterday's vamp card, it is colored first with Copic markers (C3, C5, C7, C9) and then I added a thin coat of Ranger Black Diamond Stickles over that, just using the applicator on the bottle to spread it around in a swirly pattern. Once it dried the Stickles gave it a really cool, glittery lace kind of look. :)
Today's card is the brown, red and white requirement from my dt application. I altered one of the new Dressy Miss Anyas by giving her the head from one of the original Miss Anyas. I really love how this one came together and the sentiment pretty much sums up how I'm feeling right now. :)
Sheesh... look at all those smilies I used in this post... told you I couldn't stop smiling!

I can't believe i've been included in such a wonderfully talented group of ladies.

I have to agree it is sad to see Traci leave the DT, her work has inspired me so much, I just hope she continues to share her wonderful creations with us :)

I've gotta tell you - I was very disappointed not to be chosen for the design team... but when I visited the blogs of the girls who DID get chosen, I felt better. You guys ROCK - no wonder they had such a hard time choosing... you do absolutely beautiful work. I love your vampire Anya! Peace, Jenn
