Happy Monday Mania, with ME!!!

Happy Monday!!!
A fabulous start to a wonderful week :)

Guess who gets to host this week's
Club Anya Monday Mania???
ME!!! Woo Hoooo :)

I was and still am so happy to have recieved Amy's invite to host Monday Mania this week :) I'm so honored and thrilled to be a part of it! and you all know how much I adore The Greeting Farm stamps and digital images!!! Especially those lil Wild Sprouts... the lil boys... Edward ;)


So, here's how I came up with this week's challenge... This Wednesday is my baby boy, Matthew's, 4th birthday :) I decided to let him help me create a recipe reflecting his sweet and simple personality and his fave colors, green and brown.

Here's our recipe:
- Must use Kraft CS
- Must use the color Green
- Only ONE patterned/designer paper
- Only ONE type of embellishment, plus or minus Ribbon
- And of course, your Anya, Ian or Friend Image :)

Oh my goodness!!!
I cannot wait to see what everyone will be cooking up!!!

For my first card, I created a birthday card for Matthew using lil Edward :)
This adorable lil Wild Sprout, inspired by Twilight (squee!), looks like he was created to look just like my Matthew - the messy hair, the large sweet innocent eyes and those cheeks! Too cute!!!

The paper is from Imaginisce, the sentiment is from TGF's Oliver and Olivia "Happy Day" Stamp Set and I added some Making Memories Button Brads... I thought it would be fun to play around with the layout and try to create an arrow to match the DP :) 

For my next card, a girly twist to the recipe!
 I dusted off "Teacher Anya" (don't you wish you had all the time in the world to play with ALL of your stamps!) to create a Thank You card for Nicholas' Kindergarten Teacher :)
Finally, his last day of school is Friday! We're all so excited for summer vacay! 

I used Cosmo Cricket's Material Girl DP, punched the side and added some misc. ribbon that I found at our LSS... the sentiment is from TGF's "My Guy Ian" Stamp Set.

I hope that everyone finds a moment to create and join in!
If you do, you will be entered to win a single in-stock stamp of your choice :)
Who can reisist that chance?! ;)

Enjoy your scrappy time this week! :*)
