Alternative Anya for Christmas!

Morning all. An early post from me as I am off to Stamp Magic at The Dome in Doncaster today with my mum! Yay! I've got a budget and I MUST stick to it! Lol!

Today's card is another christmas card that I have made for my christmas box. A nice quick and simple card made using this fab Anya that I was kindly sent by a blogging friend. Thanks hun you know who you are!


This image was just so easy to colour and I added loads of glitter for her wings and halo, love to have some sparkle. I am going to enter this card over at ABC Challenge this week where F is for Flying! Well Fairies fly don't they??!! I am also entering it into Winter Wonderland this week, where they have an open theme {just so long as it's christmas!}. I added the sentiment in the corner of the image with a stamp-a-ma-jig which I got from the wonderful Jules. Can I just say I am such a huge fan of this fab little tool. I honestly don't know what I did without it. No more wonky sentiments for me!

Materials:

Image: Angel Anya from the Greeting Farm, coloured with Koh-i-noor pencils and Sansodor

Paper:
Winter Wonderland from Craftwork Cards

CS: Kraft from stash

Sentiment: From a See D's christmas set

Tools: Stamp-a-ma-jig from SU

Misc: White inkpad to distress edges of kraft CS, Glitter Glue for wings, spotty ribbon from Hobby craft.

I don't have many christmas cards that are girly and pink like this. They're not traditional colours or image, I know, but I think it make a refreshing change. My OH doesn't like it at all, say's it not a christmas card. Good job I'm not giving it to him then isn't it!!

Can I just say a huge thank to everyone who has enquired how am I am after my car acident and for your well wishes. I am much better now thanks, just a bad back, which I was having problems with before the accident anyway!

I hope you're all having a lovely weekend! Let's hope the weather is better today! Thanks for stopping by!

Hugs, Vicky ~x~
