Miss Anya & a Contest!!

Hello & Happy Thursday to you all! I am not a very happy camper today I must say :o( My laptop has crashed and the antibiotics I got for my sinus infection are not working as well as they should. Let's just say that my laptop crashing, is like lightning has struck me down. I have no access to my files, pictures, emails or anything. I'm hoping hubby is able to fix it today, if not we'll have someone come look at it on Friday. I'm able to use our desktop and downloaded Photoshop on it, but cannot do as much as I'd like to get done. Anywho, don't wanna bring ya down w/ my cloud, so we'll move on---LOL!

I am a lucky girl this month though---Marie of The Greeting Farm has asked me to be a Guest Designer for the month of March---Yahooooo! So I'll be sharing different projects with you all month featuring these wonderful stamps! Today my card uses a stamp from the "Miss Anya Collection"---great images for teens & grown-girls too! She's colored w/ Copics and I added stickles to her headband and skirt--a girls gotta have some bling ya know--LOL!

The fun clothing dp is by Colorbok (from JoAnns)--loved the colors in it! I also used a sketch I made for this month's challenge over on Susana's (SCACD) PaperCraft Planet site! And I was lucky enough to have these fabby Petaloo flowers w/ bling in my stash--matched perfectly! The sentiment is from Gina K's "Retro Boutique"--so fitting! Make sure and stop by The Greeting Farm to see all the fabby stamps--including some new fairies!
Okay, I've got some newsbitz for ya today that you won't wanna miss:
