It's a Cover Up :(x

Yes, we managed to get ink all over the card - about 10 minutes before I was due to do the Anyone For Anya Post!!!! So a state of emergency was declared here at the sty and I had to get me thinking cap on really quick. I'll show you in a sec.

So over at Anyone For Anya this week, we thought we'd have a 'Your Anya' challenge so we had to use the image which best summed us up.

Now I have to say that had I had the Laundry Anya, I would have used that image cos it seems to me that my head is always in the washine machine either putting stuff in or taking it out.

But sadly I aint got it.

She is available though at Dies To Die For and had I been a bit more organised (ha!!!), I would have ordered her.

So I thought l'd use the Snow Anya cos I am a winter girl - love the snow, love the dark nights (yes, it is a bit strange I know) and love cosying up to a nice roaring fire.

So here's me card.

I coloured Miss A in with PMs and there is some Glamour Dust on the furry bits.

I also got the Flower Soft out again and made some nice crunchy snow for her to stand on. I'm getting obsessed with that stuff lol xxx

I made a little charm.

The snowflake charm was either from Bunny Zoes or Simon Says Stamp. Sorry I cannot for the life of me remember which one this was from, but they are available at both these places.

I know where the papers were from though. The stripey grey and pink snowflake papers were from the fab Pink Petticoat and the grey gingham was from Funky Fairy

Here's the cover up.

I'd been inking something else, had a bit of BLACK ink on my hand which I hadn't noticed, picked up this card and ended up with a ruddy splodge of ink down the side of the image. This was not a happy accident - I was very unhappy I can tell you.

So 3 strategically placed punched snowflakes have saved the day!!!

So there you have it.

I'm off to do a bit of shopping. It's card club tomorrow night and it's our first birthday so I want some nice bits and bobs to take with me :)))x

But before I go, I thought I'd show you these little sweeties -

They are little angel charms and you can use them on your cards or jewllery.

I have some left over from an order I did, so if anyone is interested in buying any, just drop me an e-mail (they are £1.50 each including p & p).

I have to say a huge thank you to my lovely friend, the absolute sweetness that is Marlene, cos I got the idea for them from her and she has very generously said that she didn't mind me selling them. Thank you lovely girlie and I can't wait to see you at the NEC xxx

Have a great Sunday and hugs to all xxxx

Could be my all time favourite...absolutely love everything about it...the colours are delightful and the charms just make it extra it

Beth said...

Nooo! Ha ha! This is just the sort of thing I do almost weekly! I would never have seen though - good covering skills! Such a fab card, I love the pink and grey together and I'm totally with you on loving winter, summer is lovely too but I can't be doing with the 'inbetween-ness' of spring and autumn!! I hope you've had a nice weekend!

Gorgeous card, beautiful colours and wonderful sweet image, love the snowflakes even if they're hiding smudges.

Sharon Caudle said...

oooooo...LOVE the pink and grey combo! And those snowflakes look right at home there. I'd never have known they were to cover up anything at all. Thank goodness for embellies! :) LOVE the beads and charm trio! Hugs!

Lynne said...

This is absolutely fab, Dawny. I can always pick out a Dawny card and you've excelled yourself this time. I love winter too, all those cosy things like dark nights, snow and Christmas.

Would never have noticed the splodge!


Mary J said...

Oh wow Dawn - your cards just keep getting better and better! I love the snow she's standing on - I think I will have to steal that idea for the Xmas cards I've just made with this little cutie too!

Debi said...
