Before we get to today's challenge, we have a SPECIAL announcement for you! Helping ring in TGF's second birthday is Tammy Maxvill, TGF's newest FARMER!

We are also excited to announce, should you have missed it this past Wednesday on the CA&F Blog, that Kristy Young has joined Team Anya as our AUGUST GUEST DESIGNER! Woo hoo! HOORAY for special announcements and for parties beginning! Can you sense the magic in the air!?!

But... sadly, we are also saying goodbye to two of our Critter Crew members this week, Sandra and Sparkle! Thanks for all your efforts and be on the lookout for a DT call coming SOON!

Let's get to the challenge! The wonderful MARY GILES has put together not one, but TWO sketches for you today, combined w/ inspirational elements we'd love to see incorporated in that sketch! Your mission? Choose ONE sketch and recreate it using the INSPIRATIONAL elements drawn into the sketch as well! TWO years-TWO choices, TWO previews today! You get to choose!

Here are the sketches:

   
The Farmers & Team Anya are gearing up for a HUGE 2nd Anniversary week and are joining forces ALL WEEK to bring you even more fabulous samples, ideas, and prizes! In fact, FOUR DT members have "hidden" Creepers up for grabs on their blogs today, so be sure and VISIT! We'll announce the winner on the TGF Blog tomorrow!

For now, I'd like you to meet Tuesday Creeper. I used Mary's sketch B on the right today and...... 

went completely wild with her hair, ha ha ha, these creeper's just ask for that quirky fun and who wouldn't love a day with hair this fun?  I have paper pieced her dress although the fabulous yellow gingham pattern is slightly lost... her underskirts have been treated with some glimmer paint for added girly funk! And I totally LOVE her crown, I've cut out a second and coloured using sakura stardust glitter, love the finish. Her boots are proper shiny with a little glaze too!
