Club Anya Release Party

On Sunday, Club Anya had release party with three different themed challenges. Since we had guests, I only ended up with about an hour to create my cards, photograph, upload (which is no quick task when you have over 900 pics on your memory stick....) and then post them. So needless to say, I only got two of the three challenges done.

The first one I did was a Beach Vacation theme.
For this card, I chose Mermaid Anya. Want to know why? Well, it's because, I had already colored and glittered her up awhile back and just hadn't used her yet, and since I didn't have much time, it was an easy choice.

The sky is Cool Caribbean paper sponged with White craft ink. For the water, I tore some Pacific Point cardstock and cut some more with my Sizzix Wave die, highlighted the tops with sponged on White craft ink and layered them onto the card base. The sand is just some torn sandpaper. I positioned Anya in the water behind one of the waves, added a clam and sentiment which is sponged around the edges with Cool Caribbean ink. This card actually came together really quick.

The next challenge I participated in was to use stars.

For this card I chose to use Annika from the Wild Sprouts Collection. I used some DP from the DCWV school collection since it had stars on it, and then added a punched out star as well as the sentiment Star student. The sentiment is a "Star" stamp along with my handwriting for "student".

Hey Jodi!! I don't know how it happened but I don't seem to be a follower any more. :( I will add myself on again, as your work is so beautiful! From what I see here for your TGF DT call, you truly have what it takes to be a gardener! I love all the oranges (fave color) and happiness in these cards! The layouts work perfectly for the images, I am sure Marie had her hands full trying to decide who she wanted. :D
