FFF - Body Snatchers!

Hello my friends!!!  We are back with our regularly scheduled challenge... 
Today's Farm Fresh Friday challenge is one of my favorites!!!  We want you to practice your altering skills! We are calling this one 'Body Snatchers' and we want you to take some of your favorite TGF stamps and switch around the heads and bodies to make a brand new character!  The possibilities are endless and we can't wait to see what you come up with :0)
I personally LOVE mixing up the characters bodies and heads, it's like paper dolls and there are an endless amount of combinations.  To see what the rest of the design team created check out the FFC blog, or click HERE.  They did such an amazing job coming up with some good new characters.. hehe..

For my alteration, I chose Twirl Anya & Surfer Anya.  I have been keeping this little girl in my mind ever since these images came to life.  I so enjoyed putting her together and coloring her!  I mimicked the small surfboard by making a bigger one for the background.  Used a couple 5-petal flower punches and some scraps of dp to fill in. The card is longer card than I normally would make (L=8.25xW=3.5), but the board actually shaped this one for me.

Here is a close up of my new Surfer Anya with her pixie-like hair:

Alrighty friends, it's your turn to create a new TGF image of your choice.  I can't wait to see what you come up with.

The FFF challenges runs until Thursday, entries are due by 12 PM CST.

The winner will receive a free single TGF stamp of choice!
