But this is actually this week's challenge over at Anyone for Anya, which is to make your last Christmas card of the year. I chose Miss Snow Anya, and it was a popular choice of image cos a few of us used her.
It's nice though to see the different cards using the same image I think - check it all out if you get a sec.
Ooops, I nipped off the edges of her boots when I was doing me editing thing - doh!!!!
I coloured her with PMs and Glamour Dust - awesome combi IMHO, if ever so predictable where this old pink piggy is concerned.
So anyhoos, this is my card.
I used my new MSBP again - LOVING it - to make the shaped layering.
The ribbons are both organza and a bit difficult to see them properly here cos they are so sheer.
I stuck a bit of bling onto the centre and now I am looking at it here, I cannot for the life of me think why I did that.
It shall be removed verrry shortly lol xxx
The paper I used is just gorgeous and it is one of the A Little Yummy For Your Tummy Magnolia papers which are available from Dies To Die For - you can see it here. I think it's lovely for winter cards.
The sentiment is a Papermania one and the little bit of lace up the centre is a bit I found in the bottom of the mess that is my ribbon box. It possibly came from Hobbycraft but I am not 100% certain!!!
LOADS of dimension on this one.
And that is me for today.
It is my Nikkie's birthday today so we are off out for lunch. Richard's cousin and his family are up from London so we are going to a little place we like in Parkgate on the Wirral which overlooks the marsh and the food is yummy!!! It's also Emma's birthday on Tuesday - I obviously had the same awesome planning as my mother did cos we are all in the same week!!!
So on that note I better go and get some slap on the old mush - polyfilla and a trowel these days and it still doesn't work sadly. I'd ask Santa baby for a face lift but what's the point!! It would be higher but just as ugly lol xxx
Have the fabbiest of Sundays and see you soon if not sooner.
Hugs to all xxxx
