Hello Friend.....

I would like to introduce you to Cuddle Anya! She is a little shy but very sweet! I think she would appreciate a good bedtime story! She is a new release from The Greeting Farm, and will be available on May 1st!

I decided I wanted to give her a little extra dimension, so I stamped her 3 times and popped up the teddy bear once and her arm twice. I also wanted to put the word "friend" at the bottom but all of my chipboard letters were to big to fit on the card so I cut the word out with my Cricut 4 times and glued them on top of each other so they would be thick like chipboard, then I inked the edges and covered them with glitter!

The Details:
Stamp: Cuddle Anya - The Greeting Farm
Paper: Imaginisce, Chocolate Chip (SU), Candle Glow Light (Prism), White (Paper Trey Ink)
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black, Walnut Stain Distress Ink
Copics:
Skin: R00,E00,E11,R20
Hair:E50,E53,E55,E57
Bear: E25,E27,E29,E50,E53,E55
Clothes: R81,R83,R32,R35,R37,YG21,YG23,YG25,YG27
Misc: Ribbon (SU), Cricut, Stardust Stickles, Foam Tape

One of these little sweeties will be given away to a random commenter on one of the Club Anya and Friends DT's blogs, so be sure to visit them all:

Well, that's all for me for today, but be sure to stop by tomorrow because I will have one more fabulous Sneak Peek (and don't tell the other girls, but I think she's my new favorite)!
