YOU SAY ITS YOUR BIRTHDAY NA NA NA NA NA NA NA NA!!!!!!



Happy Anyaversary and congratulations to Marie for a fabulous year of amazing, wonderful, fun stamps! The Greeting Farm totally started my obsession with stamping and I am ever so grateful to now be a part of the current crop of gardeners. I have had so much fun the past month or so and I am so glad you stopped by on your blogging frenzy today!

The Greeting Farm is ONE year old today and we have all of you to thank! If you are just getting started on my blog, feel free to head on over to The Greeting Farm and Club Anya blogs for the COMPLETE blog hop list and also some important information on contests, giveaways, and a SURPRISE! We have over 80 participants so we'll be hanging out, hopping, and having an awesome time along the way!



Ace of Cakes is one of my favorite shows (I have a secret little crush on duff), they make the most amazing cakes. This isn't one of theirs, but it similar to the types they create. It was made by Sweetums Designer Cakes I tried to re-create this cake in card form but with a little "twist".






Oh My! What could that be peeking out of the top of the cake?

















Could it be?








Oh Yeah, it's Birthday Anya popping up to say SURPRISE!!!!!!

Isn't she just the cutest? I used this super cool tutorial from SCS for a PUSH/PULL CARD that allows Anya to pop out of the top when the bottom tab is pulled down. So much fun to play with.

And here is the best surprise of all, today only you can download a new digi stamp "birthday Ian" free! Just head over to The Greeting Farm Blog and get him, he is adorable!
Thanks so much for sharing Anya's Birthday with us. Hope you have loads of fun blopping around, I know I will!
