So far these are the challenges given;
Monday - Back to School
Tuesday - Crazy Hair
Wednesday - Javablu
Thursday - Smile and Shine
See http://www.clubanya.blogspot.com/ for more details.
Also, I can't believe how generous the owner of the Farm is, but they're giving away free stamps every day. Yes, every day! It's called 'A-Stamp-a-Day-Giveaway' and all you need to do is leave a comment on The Greeting Farm's blog any day this week to win! Exciting, isn't it? If you don't own any TGF stamps already, this is your chance. Check out http://www.splendidstamping.blogspot.com/ and leave a comment for your chance to win. Good luck!
Here are a couple of the cards I'm submitting for the challenges;
Back to School
Using TGF's own Anya stamp, I added Stampin' Up ribbon, buttons, an apple stamp, as well as flowers I've watercoloured to embellish this card. The red polka-dotted paper used is from TGF's Anyaversary paper pack. Also, I just HAD to add a little chalkboard! I wrote 'Back to School' in white pen on black cardstock and made a border I hoped would look like wood with Creamy Caramel cardstock.
For this card I used another TGF Anya stamp. The two you see are from the new stamp set called, 'Miss Anya Dressy'. They're so cute!
I used Stampin' Up Bashful Blue and Chocolate Chip paper for this card. I watercoloured another flower stamp for this one and paper pieced some of Anya's outfit to make her extra stylish! The sentiment is also from The Greeting Farm. It's from a new stamp set called, 'Hello Go Round'. I just love all the new stamps TGF is introducing. ;)
What do you think of these two cards? I'm trying really hard to improve my card making skills with every challenge I undertake. I appreciate your comments.
Hope you have a great day!
