Sweater weather

Hola chicas!
How you doin'? (that's my Joey from Friends impersonation, LOL)

So my trip to town was good. Target was a bust but it usually is when it comes to their paper crafting aisle... ours never has the good stuff I'm always reading about. :(
Though I did score at Craft Warehouse. They were having a dollar days sale this weekend and I found a bunch of the Kaiser Craft gems and pearls that I LOVE and use constantly all just a buck a piece... sweet! I also couldn't resist some of the new Valentine's and Easter dollar stamps since they've been working out pretty well for sentiments on my holiday cards. All and all it was a fun day out. :)

So my card today uses Sweater Anya, she's one of two digi stamps that Marie made as a Christmas gift for the DT. I'm super grateful to have been given such a gift... I mean look at this cutie with those smilie eyes that I love so much (Ian has them too and is just as cute). But because I love them both so much I'm hoping, pleading, praying and begging that she will consider making them rubber and available to everyone before next winter. For me a stamp just is more real when I can actually hold it in my hand and see it sitting there in my 'collection'. :)
If you love Sweater Anya and think she and Sweater Ian would be great in rubber too, give 'em a shout out here... maybe if we are pitiful enough with our hopeful puppy dog eyes Marie will grant our wish! ;)

Hi Amy, Congrats on your haul! That sounds like so much fun. We don't have anything here. At one time we had 3 scrapbook stores. Now we don't even have one.... :( I would so love to see a crafter's warehouse or even a Michaels...This card is so adorable! I love the color as always....I so agree with you I would love these two in rubber! Please Marie!!!! You make me laugh with Joey, at our house my kids just love that show. We have all 10 seasons on dvd and my daughter can say quote everything. My kids call me Chandler. Yes, I am as Jerry says the sarcasm queen! not so little a great day..Lisa

I love that image and agree it NEEDS to be in rubber so all us Anya lovers can play with her :). Your card is gorgeous and will fit perfectly with the Fussy and Fancy Challenge.

I love Craft Warehouse, though I usually go to the one down in Portland when I go home to visit the family.

Your card is darling! I hope Marie makes though into rubber too.

RiNNE said...

Awww, great that you found a lot of those pearls on sale! I always love how you used them in your cards!

And speaking of, I really like this one! Awesome choice of papers and I love the sketch. Yes, that sweater Anya is too pretty! You and the rest of the DTs, farmers, Digital DT are sooo lucky!

Shirley N said...

Ohhh baby, this is a CUTIE!

♥Rach♥ said...

They would be perfect for winter and fall cards and I totally agree that the rest of us "need" them, LOL.

Adorable card, love the layout and papers you used, Sweater Anya is the perfect addition :0)

Gabby said...

She is precious Amy and your card is beyond gorgeous!

As much as I would love to see her into rubber...I say that since it was a gift exclusively for the DT...that it should be YOUR gifts! KWIM? ;) Still...amazing work woman!

crafty amy said...

This is a brilliant card I love the colour combo :D
I will join you in the begging for these images I have been drooling over all the DT's creations with them what a great gift!
It sounds like you have found some great bargains I can't wait to see them in action.

Amy xx

Adorable card Amy!!! I would TOTALLY love these images in rubbah!! I'm super jealous that only the DT have them... but all the same - an awesome gift for amazing artists!!

donna mikasa said...

Wintery cute! As much as I would love to own Sweater Ian and Anya--it's a wonderful gift for the DT and makes the "exclusive-ness" all the more special! Plus, I love it when you swap heads!

Unknown said...

What a darling card and an awesome gift! Beth

WickedPixie said...

Hi Amy! My Target never has any of that good stuff either - maybe they just don't send it up our way!
Your card is absolutely adorable and I was thinking "I love that snowman paper, where did she get it" and then I see it's a old Navy bag - How clever are you!!!?
I want ALL Anya's and Ian's to be available in rubber and to everyone - it just kills me when I can't have one!! :-) And I ,too, especially love their smiley eyes! :-)Traci
