Release Day & Blog Hop!


Hello there friends! Well, we've made it through a week of AMAZING previews and what better way to kick off RELEASE DAY than with a BLOG HOP? Sounds good? We thought so!

Thanks for sticking with us and today we are definitely making it worth your while! Not ONLY can you shop til' you drop RIGHT NOW at the TGF store, Team Anya has a special Design Team Blog Hop, and ONE LUCKY WINNER will take home ALL THREE Rubber releases! That's Creeper Monday, Creeper Wednesday, and the Oliver/Amelia "Journey" set.





I used sweet Oliver on my easel card and colored him with Copics. See the texture on his hat? My pal Kelly taught me how to texturize using the colorless blender. Thanks, Kelly!




And I couldn't resist putting some dots on his little hobo bag with my Sharpie poster paint pen.  Isn't he the cutest little traveler?






Be sure to start at the beginning at the Club Anya & Friends blog and continue on the hop. Here's the order in case you get lost:

Leave a comment along the way and at the very end to say that you finished the hop. Remember, one lucky commenter will receive all 3 new rubber releases! Good luck and happy hopping!

ETA: The lucky winner of the new release is Barbara DeBose. Congrats, Barbara!
