New Digi Stamp!

Good Morn to all! Many of you have requested more digi stamps and so far be it for me to deny you that! Our newest little digi addition is Geisha Anya. Anya went to Japan for a little vacation and had just returned! Needless to say, Ian missed her dearly and was thrilled when he saw her in the driveway with her bags.

For my rubber fans, I know you are patiently waiting for some new single Anyas to be released on rubber soon. Fear not, you will not be disappointed. The Anya bonanza starts Feb. 1st.

Also today I place the orders for Hero! Thank you to all of those who have emailed me. I loved all the photos of our handsome and beautiful soldiers. I have put you on the list to receive the set once it gets produced. It will take a few weeks. I'm expecting it the first week of February. I wasn't able to reply to all the emails but rest assure I did get your information. And a salute to your soldiers for being the heroes that America deserves! HOORAH!

A few cards to showcase today. I was scouting the gallery and saw awesomeness everywhere. A reminder that I have a Gardener DT call early March for my rotating team. Gardeners are committed for 3 months. If there is slot open on the Farmer's Team, a gardener will be selected to fill it. Farmer's team is my senior team of delightful designers!

Cheryl starts us off today with her whimsical and beautiful cards! These are from the Light Up set! I love how she decorated the candles. It's pretty realistic huh? Yea!

And this ADORABLE Dorothy Anya is by Jenn M. Beautiful coloring and work. The simplicity and boldness of the design caught my eye!

Yay another Dorothy!!!! This one is by Janna! I believe it was for Miss Madelynn's Twinkling Tuesday Sketch Challenge. Madelynn is Jessica D's super talented sketcher daughter!

And oh my! What a cute little Ian by Pam V.! He looks like a little trouble maker! hahahaa.

And yayyy another digi! This time it's Ridinghood Anya by our model girlElena! Another work of art! I love the DP and the pleated ribbon!

Also if you haven't been to Elena's blog, I stoled this to show you. haha. Anya Fashion forecast!!! Is this amazing or what?! Totally!

I'm very very happy looking at today's cards!!! Ahhh and remember tomorrow is the Magical Unicorn Challenge!!! It's gonna be great!!!

Today's question is: What is your occupation?

Ok so do you all feel like we're one big family now because I've been asking a daily question since... like August? LOL. Anyway my occupation is stamp designer/freelance graphic artist/mom to Stewie & Bailey. It's the hardest but most fun job in the world.

Ohhhh Geisha Anya is tottemo kawaii desu yo! :D Sorry, my keyboard doesn't have hiragana...;)
These cards are so pretty, as always! If I had to subscribe to only one blog, this would be it.

My occupation is a happy SAHM (which includes all the extras: chauffeur, teacher, baker, cook, maid, nurse, janitor, disciplinarian, garbage girl, personal shopper, clown) and military wife. And I love every minute of it.

OMG I love Geisha Anya, I've downloaded her and can't wait to play. At the moment I'm a full-time card designer and housewife :) Kim

Moni said...

Wendalyn said...

I love the new little Geisha. My Occupation is Service Operations Technician is just a fancy word for saying I fix computers. HAHA... I work for a Global company at night which is the UK's day hours and I fix computers, applications, VPN and Blackberry issues. Fun huh... I also sell cards during my Off hours...

Geisha Anya is just too cute! Love her. I really enjoy looking at the samples everyday.

The question of the day is really fun, and every time I read one I wonder "how does she think up so many interesting questions"!

I am a SAHW (stay at home wife). I was a SAHM, but now my youngest is 21. With an empty nest, I really can't say that any more. But taking care of my DH is enough. We also have 3 little pups. It's amazing how busy they can keep me. I have to say, my male chi is adorable, but Stewie still is the cutest darn doggie I have ever seen. I am waiting for a Stewie line, LOL, to go with Anya and Ian.

OMG, even I'm not a big digi fan must have Geisha Anya. I love her!!!

I'm, by occupation, is a Branch Administration Manager for a brokerage firm. Basically it's a compliance officer to make sure your broker don't do something stupid and I am the big brother that read everyone's emails.

Melyssa said...

Oooohhhh Geisha Anya is BEAUTIFUL!! I had to buy her right away, and I bought the Unicorn for the contest tommorrow.

In an ideal world I would be a graphic designer, but in real life I'm a SAHS (stay-at-home-stamper).

~*Joni said...

A Stewie and Bailey line! YES YES YES! :D Brilliant idea Sandy...well Marie? lol! This way I wouldn't have to keep going to their YouTube site for my girls. haha!

glitter gal said...

I am a stay at home wife and soon to be mom! I just found out Tuesday that I'm pregnant with my first after trying for a year! YEAH! God is good!
LOVE Geisha Anya! She is so cute! I played around with my Mermaid Anya for the fashion show and put her hair up for my Bride Anya entry. I was so hoping for an Anya with an updo to come along! YEAH! :)

Sandra MacLean said...

I was waiting for you to come out with a geisha/Japanese girl Marie!!! YAY!! She's so adorable!

I work as a CAD Designer, which basically means I draw 3D plans for an architect using a computer. That's my day job, my evening job is housewife and mama!

Anonymous said...

I love Geisha Anya! I'm purchasing today! I can't wait to get her home and play with her.

My occupation, wow I don't know my job title is anymore it keeps changing. I think it's still close to the original though, learning and education implementation. In easier terms I do logistics for the state of Florida for PricewaterhouseCoopers coporate training. I'd like to be a SAHM though, except no husband to work while I stay at home and my DD is 18 so no need to be there with here (according to her she hasn't needed that since she was 6). HA!

rachelsigmak said...


I am SAHM.... and I LOVE it, it is definitely the job I was made for... never mind the extensive college education, hahahah.

Kerry said...

OMGosh, I LOVE (got to go download) the Geisha Anya. The cards are beautiful, the new designs totally ROCKS (I love them all), I feel like drug addict, LOL! I have to check your blog everyday, get my fix and see what's going on! =D

Too funny, I'm an official drug dealer (aka a pharmacist) and I am addicted to the Greeting Farm. LOL.

KanataNewf said...

Geisha Anya is adorable. But before I download her my answer to your question. I am a database administrator for the canadian federal government. Sounds boring I know but the actual area where I work is very interesting.

Now to download my new Anya.....

Novell said...

Hee hee. I spied Geisha Anya last night while I was browsing the shop and already have her downloaded! I LOVE her!!! Oh, and I got the unicorn, too, just in case I'm finally able to participate in a challenge (and I have a birthday coming up this weekend for a niece so it's the perfect excuse for the purchase). Hey, I would love to see a matching Ian digi of him in a male kimono.

As for occupation, my day job is as a project manager in the telecom industry. Outside of that, I'm a wife, mom of 2 busy kids and 2 fur babies, an A Muse Artstamps Instructor and designer, and Slice class instructor at my LSS.

Congrats to Glitter Gal on her first pregnancy!! Hoping everything goes well for you and you have a beautiful little cherub in your arms in the fall!

ribenaruby said...

Beautiful Geisha Anya! Can't wait to see what more you've lined up. Absolutely love all the creations. I'm a SAHM and love it!

Ashley said...

I love Geisha Anya but I want her in rubber. What can I say? I'm a traditionalist. I remember asking for a geisha Anya a while back, thanks for listening!

I work at a daycare, take my child with me to work, and I'm pregnant. It's like being super woman.
