Random Ramblings

Happy Hello Wednesday!!! Before I continue my rambles for today...


Yesterday's ASADG winner is:
Pöydän kulmalla näpertelijä
http://poydankulma.blogspot.com/

Email me with your stamp choice and address to claim your prize!


I was going through all the delightful cards in the galleria and I realized something that brought such a big smile to my face. I noticed that there are a good number of cards that mix and match Anya/sprout heads and bodies. It is just sooo cool! You guys are too clever for me! Some of them look like totally different stamps. I think it's fabulous. I think I can safely say I don't see that happening with any other company stamps around. hahaha! I also think it because my characters have such huge head, it's easy to swap them around. LOL! But then... some of you take it even further, like AMY!



How incredible is this? Seriously. Also I can't stop looking at all the fabulous concepts in the 'Design My Sprout' gallery. I'm losing sleep over it. I don't know how we're gonna pick from them! Ahhhhh! It's devastatingly hard. I'm tempted to turn them all into rubber. haha. I'm so glad that this challenge is going on and I hope everyone's enjoying it as much as I do. Now I want to do a 'Design My Anya' challenge. LOL. Jessica's gonna kill me, she already has so much on her plate. hahahahaha!

Anyhoos, a couple of cute My Guy Ian creations for you to gander at!

Caz said...

That is such an unfair question...that is like asking which ones of your kids do love the most....

I love the teen element to Miss Anya/Dude Ian, and the edgy look to the Wild Sprouts and the cute look to the HG range....so I love 'em all.

Wild Sprouts and Anyas are my favourite.

Ian is cute - I can't believe I need to order MORE TGF stamps!!! A never-ending addiction to rubber and ink. :)

Love them all.

And trying to pick between the sets of Anya/Ian ,WS and Hope/Grace is hard, I like them all !!

Jenn Borjeson said...

I simply cannot choose!!!! Every time I think I have a favorite, I change my mind. I LOVE THEM ALL!!!

Carrie said...

Soo cute!! Hmm well since I have to choose I'm going to go with Anya/Ian. :)

Rachel said...

That's a toughie! I would totally have to go Anya/Ian though. WS's are def a close second (Love my Ed and Megan) but Anya/Ian are my first loves ;0)

Craftyanny said...

oh imagine asking us to choose, that's sooooooooooooo unfair lol
Love Dude Ian, but they're all adorbale

StampinCathy said...

WOW! WOW! WOW! This is some major and inspiring MOJO! Is this a trick question? I just love all of them. That's like asking which child you love more! LOL

L.Nielsen (Lynda) said...

Oh My Goodness Marie, this is not a question I can answer.... LOL They are all awesome!
Yes that card is awesome. Talk about creativity! The possibilities are endless with TGF...
I think that's part of what makes it so much fun, and you're right, no other companies have stamps that make it so easy for altering etc.
That's why stamping and partying with TGF and Club Anya is so much fun. We can all think WAY OUTSIDE the box here... It's TEEEERific!!!
Big Hugs
Lynda =)

Buttons Ribbons and Pearls said...

Omg! I just can't do it ! They are all so adorable. Nope, I just can't do it ! ;o) Tracy

Dragonlady said...

I'm not sure I can make a choice as I love them all.

Centaur card is stunning.

Mrs Weyremaster said...

OMGosh another amazing creation by Amy, she really does have an amazing talent, every one of her wild sprout designs are amazing, i think they should all be made into rubber.

So hard to choose a favourite but for me , Anya and Ian just can't be beat, i love every single one of them, and i really love how easy they are to mix and match with each other, lets us get really creative.

Have a great day all

Isabel Z said...

No way can I choose a favorite--love them all!

The cards are fantastic. Such a group of talented artists.

Peggy said...

Awesome creations you are showing today!! My favorite has to be the Sprouts. Their "personalities" are fun to work with!

Pam Varnell said...

These samples are all amazing!!!

Which stamps to chose? Miss Anya/My Guy Ian!!! No thought at all on that one. They are my favs.

Lauretta See ( LadyPou) said...

WOW! i really love Amy's work :) she just blows me away!! The ians are darling! great job there also!! :))

For me it is Anya/Ian ;)) but i love all the others too.. just that they get the top! hehehe

Karen said...

How can you make us choose!!!!!! I love them both!!!

Amy's is my absolute Goddess with all her new creations! I'm absolutely speechless every time I see her new designs!!!! I check her blog EVERY day! First thing I check when I wake up and get on the computer!

~*Joni said...

I saw Amy's card during the CA party - AMAZING! The colors are sooo fantasty-ic. lol! Is that the adjective of fantasy? Beautiful job Amy!
I don't even dare peek at the WS entries. I'll be tempted to buy them all if you turn them into digis or rubber. haha! My guy is sooo dreamy. He's the type of guy I would have been so intimidated by in HS as he's that cute and down to earth. Sigh.

Okay, I can't believe you are asking that question! I'll have to say H&G right now. I was RAK-ed Sing by surprise and have always adored their sweetness. :D

Mary said...

I love them all. There is just no way to pick a favorite.

Krista said...

If I had to choose I'd say Anya/Ian but I love them all!!

JenRaff said...

I would choose Anya/Ian then Wild Sprouts and then Hope & Grace but for the record, they are all adorable! I just have a special fondness for the Anya and Ian's.

Amy's card is so incredible -- I love looking at something so creative!

Amy's Stocking Stuffers said...

I would say "Anya/Ian", then "Hope & Grace", then "Wild Sprouts". But really, I do love all of them!

Pam S. said...

too hard! I love some of both!
Pam Going Postal

Tanya Rudd said...

Wonderful art candy on a Wednesday morning.

RiNNE said...

Dawn said...

Anya/Ian all the way!

Julie said...

Don't make us choose!! I love them all!! ^_^

Hugs,
Julie C

Donna said...

Love all the styles, I really can't choose.

Love the Magical card, very creative.

Elena said...

To choose a favorite? The hardest question ever... Theay are all my favorite!
Amy's work is AMAZING! She is very creative and has brilliant ideas!
Love today's DT cards! Fabulous!

Stephanie said...

Hmmm, can't pick a favourite. I love them all!

MiamiKel said...

Oh that card is darling -- how creative! What a tough, touch choice ..... they are all so fantastic, but I am realllly falling head over heals in love with the new Anyas that keep coming out, so I'd have to say those most of all.

crafty amy said...

Ooooh now that is a tough one I do love the sprouts and the other Amy has designed a load of incredible new ones I have no idea how you are going to pick as I want them all but I would have to say Anya over all as she first got me hooked :D

X Amy X

P.S a design my Anya sounds like a lot of fun :D

PaperCrafty said...

I can't choose!! I love them all!!

Marianne said...

I think the Wild Sprouts are my favorite.

I really like the card that Amy altered.

I also love every one of Amy's sprout designs.

JanJ said...

Wow - these are amazing card,love them all!

Jan

Sue D said...

Unfair question! I like them all but I think Anya is my fav.

Lisa F said...

Love the Sprouts! Can't wait till I'm back in the states and don't have to pay huge shipping charges again!

Heidi said...

I am not sure what to say either- they are all so wonderful. Love the My guys.

creativityinprogress said...

Wild Sprouts! They are too cute! I want them in 3-d.

Jennifer said...

At this moment, I like the Anya's because I just received a new set but really Wild Sprout are my ultimate fav, do to Edward.

Erin said...

Anya and Ian rule!!!!!!!!!

Monkichi said...

Oooh, the last Ian card with the Seahawks logo on the cap is pretty awesome! :) Yup, I'm a fan.

Jamie K said...

I love them all but Anya is probably nearest and dearest.

Amy rocks!

Kim Nath said...

The card by amy is so wonderfully creative. Hope and Grace are my absolute favorites!

Ida P. Krause said...

WOW that card by Amy is AMAZING!

Hard to choose but I think I'm more of a "Wild Sprout" kind girl.

Allison said...

Amys little guy is adorable, she always has such neat ideas!
oohhh, my fave is miss anya... but that could be because thats the only set that i have!
Allison

Berenice said...

I love them all!
Amy's images are adorable all of them :)

*Alison* said...

not a fair question.. hehe
I love the cute cards and creative sprouts that are popping up in the gallery.. :) Hugs www.stretchnbubbles.blogspot.com

Jen said...

I guess I would have to say Wild Sprouts! The centaur card is very Harry Potter/ Narnia by the way!

Renie said...

There is no way I could choose....they are so unique in thier own right and it depends what I am creating!!!!!!

People are so amazingly creative!

Stephanie said...

I'd like to create like Amy when I grow up... LOL!

Hmmm.... I love all of the characters... Mermaid Anya seems to be my go-to stamp for everything, but I think as a whole collection, I favor the Sprouts, 'cause of their edginess.

Amy said...

What a surprise to see my Centaur up on the page today, very cool! :)
And I'm loving the My Guy creations... I can't wait to get mine!
As far as today's question goes the H&G girls are cute, but the Anya/Ian and Wild Sprouts are in a dead heat for my favorites!

Shaela said...

I fell in love with the Anyas and Ians... but the Wild Sprouts are quickly taking over as my favorites! lol

margie c said...

What amazing cards and bookmarks!

I don't think I can choose... leaning towards Wild Sprout ;)
hee, hee!

Gabby said...

HOLY COW! Ian is a centaur??? That's freakin' AMAZING! Such clever gals...I HATE THEM! :P LOL!

I think you have posted the most hardest question EVER of all the questions asked...WOW! I'll have to say that as much as I love Hope & Grace and the Sprouts...I'll have to stay old school and go for the Ian's and Anya's. I mean they are what first realed me in back when TGF was Pink Poison.

HUGS!

Ashley said...

How creations!

Anya/Ian. Hands down!

Marjorie said...

I do love all of them, but if I have to choose I have to say Wild Sprout, they are just so cute:D

JessicaRabbit said...

Such a hard question! But if I could only have one it would have to be Anya/Ian.
Amy's card is so wonderful! She's so creative!

Stephanie said...

oh, this is a hard question...if I had to choose, it would be wild sprouts.

Michelle (mla1111) said...

cant pick...love them equally :)

BishopsMommie said...

you can't put me in the middle..I love them all the same..lol

Tammy said...

The Design your Sprout has been so much fun to watch. Everyone has done a fantastic job. It will be so hard to pick.

Great card line up today!

There is no way I could pick between Anya/Ians, Wild Sprouts and HG! It's just to hard.
If I were stuck on a stranded Island I'd have to take one of each!

Nunt said...

They're all TGF, how unfair to ask for a preference! Not gotta pick, nu-uh! Love them all ^_^

AShu93 said...

Anya/Ian are my favorites.

Shaz said...

Anya/Ian all the way baby!

Lindsay said...

wow what a great melding of teh images and what a unique idea it is fabulous!

as for the question of the day wow that is so hard! but if I had to pic I'd stick with my Anya/ians! but sprouts are a very close second!

Darlene said...

All of the above! Hehehe

Sandra MacLean said...

Loving My Guy Ian!! He's a doll! :) If I had to pick (oo, you are cruel Marie!) then I'd choose the Wild Sprouts over the other two, and only because I like the edgier side to them. :)

Lisa Foster said...

Oh come on...is that really a FAIR question...ha ha :) I honestly LOVE them all!!!

Amy...if you could have seen the smile on my face when I saw your card...WOW!!! You truly are a genius!

Love all the creations today!
Hugs,
Lisa

CreaRenata said...

I can't choose. Love them all!

I love the samples.

Renata

Stefanie said...

I love them all!!!

Amy! How creative are you?!?

kat9 said...

love them all! I have a few of each.

Diane Davies said...

I'd go with Wild Sprouts. No Miss Anya. Oh I don't know!!

jstacy said...

I love all of them! It's to hard to choose!

MommaJess said...

Wow what a hard choice. I would have to say that the way you listed them would be the order in which like them.

Oh I LOVE the new Mr. Ian set.

NormaJean said...

oh that is a tough question, one I cant answer thats almost like asking who is your favorite child. and like any good mom will say I dont have favorites I love them all the same!!

Hugs Normajean

Angie said...

I choose Wild Sprouts. I love them all though! Amy's stuff is amazing. I love her work!!!

Kate T said...

If I really have to choose, then Anya/Ian ! really looking forward to the Ian's arriving !
Kate x

Lisa Hjulberg said...

Always a bright spot in my day to look at the daily post and see all the awesome creativity out there.

I simply cannot choose a favorite between Anya/Ians, Wild Sprouts and Hope and Grace. They are all tied for first in my book!

I'm bowled over, too, by the awesome entries for the design your own WS. It WILL be hard to pick. In fact, I think you might have to pick more than one!

Krich said...

I'm such a big fan of TGF. I just started buy some of your stamp, it's my first time. I love all of them. But I wish I had all of them LOL.

Kathy said...

I love all of them but I have to say the sprouts put a smile on my face everytime I see them!! So cute!!
Fabulous creations you shared today!! Love the creativity!
:)Kathy

Mette said...

That is a question that for most will be difficult to answer - I for one cannot.
The characters are all unique in their own way but all spread happiness and joy where ever they go. Mette

bellafancyface said...

I love Anya and Ian. Drool. hehe. I'm afraid I'm going to go broke trying to buy all of these stamps. all are great artists.

KanataNewf said...

That is so not a fair question! There is something to love about all of them as my growing collection will attest!

I guess I will have to pick Anya though - only because there are more of them!

jo said...

Love the new Ians! :)

I think I'll go with Anya/Ians... :)

Tiffany said...

Wow!! I want to buy that new cute little bunny I saw on The Whimsical Butterfly Blog!!!

anni said...

So difficult to choose... how about All of the Above :)

Melissa Craig said...

Oooh although I love the Wild Sprouts, Hope and Grace are really adorable. And who doesn't love the staple Anya and Ian? I choose... ALL OF THEM.

BTW great Centaur card!

dougnat said...

my fav is Anya

glowinshadow23 said...

That's a really tough question!! I think I am liking the Hope and Grace images, but I love them all!!

Betty M said...

I can't choose either - I love them all - just wish I could afford them all :)
I love seeing everyone's creations - keep 'em coming.

the whimsical butterfly said...

JESSICA cannot believe that you are asking them this! LOL!!!!!!! I PLEAD THE FIFTH!

Carol said...

I have seen how people change up and add to stamps...I just dont have that imagination! That card is amazing!

I love all the new ian stamps, your tags were great!

I am a HUGE Anya fan...but I am loving the sprouts too. Who am I kidding!!?? I love them all!

Hilde Larsen aka. Tindaloo said...

WOW! Such a cool centaur!!! Would love to see something like that in a stamp - perhaps two centaur-lovers even... How cute!

Gorgeous all the projects - and I'm in ♥ with the new dudes! :) It's difficult to choose - but I must say ► Anya & Ian!

Brandi said...

WILD SPROUTS!

Love them!

Heather Schlatter said...

I always love your pics Marie!!! I also think it is awesome that you actually look at all of your customers cards that we upload that is a nice feeling to know that you care about what we make with your designs!!!

I love them all too I often at night sit down and stamp up an Anya/Ian/Wild Sprout/Hope and Grace and just color them with my Copics!! Many of my coloring never make it to cards or at least they have not yet it is just a stress relief for me to color and your stamps are the best ones to practice coloring with because of their surface area!!!

You are such a sweetie and I just adore you and your company!!!

Heather

Amy :) said...

i love anya & ian the best. but they all appeal to me. :)

Snail Mail Creations said...

Amy has a million and one amazing designs! You should hire her on as a designer for TGF... * hint hint hint* lol xoxo

Lilian said...

Anya and Ian!!!

Oy, what imagination!!! Brilliant work!

Randi said...

Great My Guy Ian cards!!
Amy I love that centaur card! Seriously amazing!

I'd have to say Anya...unless you come out with a Mermaid Sprout...then it would be a tough choice. ;o)

Gloria W said...

Great Job! Love Ian. To hard to try to pick just one. Not fair!!!
