Sitting Pretty Anya

Welcome to another Monday Showcase for The Town Scrapper!! I just love these Showcases. I find them such a nice way to start of a week! Oh, have you heard the big news yet?? Phebe, owner of The Town Scrapper, has just released a line of stamps illustrated by none other than Victoria Case!! They are absolutely adorable, and I'm sure you will want to add each and every one to your collection! For our Town Scrapper Design Team (Formerly called Humble Pie) weekly challenge last Friday, some of the DT made some fabulous cards with these new image, so make sure to spend a while looking at their gorgeous projects!

Today, my card features another image from the Miss Anya Love set from The Greeting Farm. (I showed you another of the Miss Anya Love images a couple of weeks can see that post here.) Phebe has a bunch of great Greeting Farm stamps in stock! These stamps are fabulous, and always produce a nice, crisp image. I am quite partial to the Miss Anya collection. I find them so versatile.

Last week, I made my very first gate fold card. I found it so much fun (and quite easy!), so decided to make another for this card. The gorgeous paper you see here is a double sided sheet from Imaginesce. Phebe has this particular paper in stock right now! It has a really pretty perfect for those "girly" projects!

I stamped Anya on Neenah cardstock and coloured her with my Copic markers. She is perched on a layered circle and scalloped circle medallion I cut out with my Nestabilities from Spellbinders. This is another great product line Phebe carries, and she just told me that she got in a brand new shipment!!

Make sure to pay Phebe a visit in gorgeous Petrolia Ontario! The Town Scrapper contact information is listed on her blog. I also have a picture of her store sign in my sidebar which is a direct link to her blog! If you are too far to visit, feel free to give Phebe a call! Her customer service is top notch!
