Anyone for anya?


Afternoon everyone! Hope your day is going well. Me and hubby are going to the cinema tonight so I'm looking forward to that-we're going to see Orphan. We don't go out much these days y'know! lol. Thanks for all the lovely comments about Leo and help with the engagement card-just got to make it now! The new challenge blog Anyone for Anya started yesterday-go looky-the theme for the first challenge is sugar and spice which means your favourite things though you could interpret it other ways too. I've followed the sketch at Splendid Stamping with the Greeting Farm and have used my new dressy anya-these are absolutely my favourite set-I love them! Over at Stamptacular Sunday they want to see us use dimension on our cards and I've layered the card up quite a bit. I chose to use turquoise and brown-a gorgeous colour combo but one I rarely use and it just so happens to be the theme at the Secret Crafter. I've also done a fair bit of machine stitching (good ole janome sew mini!) on my card so this works for Creative Inspirations.

Stuff: Miss Anya (Dressy anya collection) by The Greeting Farm coloured with copics and promarkers, HOTP fleamarket papers, core'dinations card, sewing machine, prima flowers, lace, button and spacer from Elaine at Quixotic Paperie, kanban bling, woodware paper punch.

Ooo just to give you a heads up the new Sugarnellie Homegrown stamps have been released today-get em quick before they sell out! Well am gonna start dinner so I'll see you all tomorrow with any luck! Thanks so much for stopping by. Huggles xxx

  16. Toddlers have a way of zapping all the outtings right OUT of a relationship, lol. Last movie I saw was Public Enemies (yummy, love me some Johnny Depp) and before that was The DaVinci Code... That's a 2 and a half year gap!!! Have fun and good luck making your engagement card.

    Lovely work today, gorgeous papers and sewing, love how you've layered the flower, and that Anya is quite the looker in her beautiful teal and brown outfit.

    Take Care,
    Stephanne
