Anya's galore.....and Ian too

The Greeting Farm had a bunch of challenges up and I decided to try and get them all completed, and this is the result.

Challenge: Javablu (use the colors blue and brown)
For this card I knew exactly what paper I wanted to use and I thought that this Miss Anya would look good with it. I also got to use one of my previously "unused" EK Success punches too.

This is also for the following challenge:
Secret Crafter - Turquoise and brown

Challenge: Use any Sketch ~
I followed the Basic Grey Challenge sketch for this one (but unfortunately posted it too late to enter it over there).
I had this image already colored for quite some time, and finally decided to use her on a card (besides the colors just went so well with this Lime Rickey paper).

This is also for the following challenges:

Stamp With Us - Color challenge from a picture
Cute Card Thursday - Lazy Daze - Summer inspired (theme or colors)
Stamp Something - Birthday Somethings

Challenge: Crazy Hair

I had no idea what to do with this one so I decided to give Ian dredlocks. I just took some black yarn, doubled it up and then tied a few knots right next to each other. When the dredlocks were done, I cut a slit in his hat and slid the tops through.

This is also for the following challenges:
A Spoonful of Sugar - "Travel" using a theme or form of transportation and a skateboard counts
Digital Tuesdays - Male Cards (sentiment inside is digital "Happy Birthday to one cool dude!")
Stamp Something - Birthday Somethings
Pile it On - "Oh Boy"

Challenge: Bling and Shine

Well of course I just had to use lots of glitter on this one and metal accents and what better image to use than Rockstar Anya. I came across this wonderful zipper trim in the clearance section at Michael's and somehow it, well two actually, just happened to jump into my basket ;) I think it's fun!

This card is also for the following challenges:

Creative Inspirations - Tags
Crafty Creations - Tags
Creative Inspirations - Spots, Dots and Circles (and yes, this is a different challenge blog from the first one)

Challenge: Back to School
I had to go with Teacher Anya for this one and matched her up with my School stack. I tore out a piece of paper from a notebook, wrote a bunch of stuff on it and used the spiral punch on the edge .
