We're Off lol xxx

Yes, our Anyone For Anya challenge blog is now officially open - wooohooooooo!!!.

Thank you to all the girls on the team for their fabulous cards and to everyone who has left us good luck messages xxxxx

Our first challenge is Sugar & Spice & All Things Nice.
And for this, all you have to do is use your fave pretties - anything girlie goes for this one. And also you can use the theme as your guide to the colours. Kim thought of this - she is way too clever that girl. All the cards are fab so if you get a sec, pop over take a look.

If you want to join us but find yourself Anya-less then you can get a wonderful selection of these gorgeous stamps from the fabulous Tracy K over at Dies To Die For :)

So this is what I did.

I used Snow Anya and I coloured her with PMs and there's a bit of the old blingy stuff on there as well. And I dug out my Cosmic Shimmer Ice Crystals for her hand warmer cos I wanted it to look furry!!

I made the danglies from some beadage I had and that beautiful silver snowflake charm was from Nikki's Bunny Zoes Craft shop. I love it and you can expect to see a few more of them on here between now and Crimbly!!!

The ribbon was from my local floristry warehouse and the big diamond brad was from the very wonderful Poppicrafts.

And yes, its had a rest so it's back to work for the old doily punch.

The papers are a mixture of PP and Wild Rose Studio.

I think they are so pretty.

The bling is Kars and I got them from Creative Pastimes

Plenty of dimension here.
Ohh I hate it when you can see the dimensional pads. I always think it's a bit like going out with yer bra straps showing lol xxx

So there ya go.

We are off to Blakemere this afternoon entertaining Miss Kyla.
We went to the zoo yesterday and had a fab time. But we are very spoilt here as it is only about 10 minutes from our house so we go there quite often. So today we are going somewhere she hasn't been to for a while. It has something for us all.

There is a kid's play area with tunnels and ball pools etc, so that's Kyla happy.

And there is a bird of prey centre there, so that's Ricardo happy.

And there are craft shops galore, including a fabulous bead store, so that's this little piggy very VERY happy.

Now, if R can keep K amused while I sneak in, I can not only look around in peace without worrying about little fingers picking stuff up, but I can also put one or 2 things in my shopping basket without beady eyes looking over my shoulder!!!!

So have a fab day one and all and enjoy what's left of the weekend and see you soon xxxxx
