Happy Christmas Anya!

Evening all! I will apologise in advance for the poor lighting in the picture. Now the days are drawing in I'm finding it difficult to take good pics as I'm out at work all day! Must get more organised and take pics on my days off! Lol!

Well I haven't used my Anya's in what seems like ages so took the opportunity and dusted them off to make another christmas card to add to my growing pile! I still need to make a lot more and with only 71 days left until the day itself (see my widget!) I suspect you may see a lot of christmas cards over the coming weeks!

As some of you may know I love the technique of paper piecing which happens to be the challenge over at Anyone for Anya? this week so I just had to enter! I decided to paper piece her scarf, but not entirely sure it works with the stripey paper?! Oh well too late now! Lol!


Image: From the Anya Rain, Snow, Shine set. Coloured with Koh-i-noors and Sansodor

Paper: DCWV Christmas stack (2007 & 2008)


Sentiment: Woodware

Tools: distress inks, sponge, cuttlebug snowflake die, swiss dots embossing folder

Misc:white funky foam from stash, blue adhesive pearls from papermania, white pearl from Quixotic Paperie, Icicle Stickles.

I really like how this card has turned out, the colours make me feel all chilly and want to wrap up, just like Anya! Lol!

Well thanks for stopping by today. I would love for you to leave me a comment so I know you have been, I really enjoy reading them! Must dash off to get the tea ready. I ope to be back later to do a spot of hopping!! :-)

Hugs, vicky ~x~
