Good Luck Anya!

Morning all! What a rubbish day it is! Pouring down with rain and wet and miserable. So today's card is the perfect tonic. Lovely and bright to cheer us all up! I haven't used my Anya's in what feels like ages so though I would get her out and ink her up! I used my favourite out of the Teen Anya set to make a good luck card for a friend who is starting a new job. Not traditional colours for a good luck card but what the heck, I wanted to be a bit different!


Image: from the Teen Anya set by The Greeting Farm, coloured with koh-i-noors and sansodor

Papers: Junebug From Baisc Grey and MME Bloom and Grow


Sentiment: See D's celebration messages set

Tools: distress inks, sponge, nesties

Misc: adhesive pearls, glitter glue {on her shoes}, ribbon all from stash

I am entering this card into three of this weeks challenges. I have followed the sketch by Dawny P over at Papertake Weekly and am also going to enter it at Cute Card Thursday as the colours I've used are lovely and summery! After a heads up by Dawny P I am also entering it into this weeks Anyone for Anya challenge whose theme is Sugar & Spice and All Things Nice! Thanks Dawny!!

I had a bit of a sad day yesterday as it was my last day at work before starting my new job next week. I will really miss working with all the girls and they were so lovely getting my lots of lovely leaving presents! It's the end of an era, but also the start of another. So I now have a week off until I start my new job, plenty of crafty time and looking forward to the wedding on friday, although I hope the weather stays fine. Even if it's just whilst the photographs have been taken!

Oooh before I forget pop over to the Sugar Nellie blog and take a look a some of the sneak peeks of the new christmas manga stamps that will be released in September.

Here's one of the little cuties to whet your appetite! I think she's my favourite so far!

Well have a great day everybody try not to get too wet! Lol!

Thanks for stopping by to say hi!

Hugs, Vicky ~x~

Hi Vicky, Thanks for the message, Mexico was amazing, and we saw a few weddings, they all looked stunning as was the beach location, I have a few pics so will forward them onto you if you like. Great cards by the way.
