Christmas in June!!

I can't believe I have made my first christmas card and we're only just into June! But my new Anya's arrived and I just couldn't wait to ink them up! This card also meets 2 of this weeks challenges which is the new sketch over at PTW and 'bit o bling' over at Cute card Thursday!

I have to say a huge thank you to Marlene who I got the Anya's from, luckily she had a spare set as they were sold out everywhere else! I think this one might be my favourite, although I haven't really had a chance to play with the other 2 yet so who know's! I coloured her with my distress inks before cutting her out and matting onto this nestie matt with 3D dots. I also stamped some snowflakes onto the matt with versamagic and added a little blue chalk to make them 'pop', before giving them a bit of sparkle with some glitter! The papers are from last years DCWV christmas stack and the sentiment is from Elzybells! I also added glitter all the way around the edge of the CS to give it a bit of a frame, hence my 'bit o bling'. Not sure if you can see this very well on the picture though!

Well the weather seems to be on the turn again. Typically it will probably be wet and cold by the weekend when I am off, oh well, it'll give me more time to craft, especially as my OH is working this weekend! :-)

Thanks for stopping by my little blog and taking the time to leave me a comment, I really appreciate it!

Hugs, Vicky -x-
