Sun-shiney Anya Meets Papertake Weekly xxx

Don' t know about you but I could certainly do with a bit of sunshine lol xx
I thought I'd try and cheer us all up with some nice bright colours and a summery image so I used Miss Shine from the new Rain, Snow and Shine Anyas for our Papertake Weekly, which this week is one of me sketches.

I am so loving these stamps - you can get them from the fabbytastic Dies To Die For.

This is the bit where I usually say I coloured the image with PMs and Glamour Dust etc etc.

Except tonight, it isn't quite true!!!

No, I can't and won't take credit where it isnt due, so I have to tell you that Nikkie coloured this for me - she wanted a fiddle with the stamps and I liked what she did, so I used it here - hope that's ok and not cheating too much!!!

So the PMs and Glamour Dust were used, just not by me in this case :)x She also Glossy Accented Anya's shades as well, but they don't show up here very well, no doubt due to my awesome photography skills!!!!!

The ribbons are a mixture of fabulous Poppicrafts (lime) and a freebie from a mag (lemon)

The brads are also Poppicrafts and the flowers were from Costco. The super cute lil flip flop charm was from the sale I did but they are Crafty Bitz which I think you can still get hold of.

The papers are a mixture of PP and Wild Rose Studio Spring CD - so gorgeous

The letters were also from the sale and last but by no means least, my beloved doily punch was used not once but twice!!

So that's me card.

Pop over and see what the girlies have been doing - it's all brill xxx

No waffle tonight you will be pleased to hear, cos I am a bit late getting this done and we are expecting visitors in a sec, but before I go, I just have to say that Dawn and Ann, 2 of my blog buddies, are starting up a new challenge blog called The Next Level and it all kicks off on June 1st. You can check it all out here.

Good luck girls, and I hope it all goes well.

Have a great evening and biggest hugs xxxx
