A combo of challenges....

Good morning and happy Tuesday. Today I have 2 cards I'd like to share with you all. The first is one I made for my Crafty Angels DT project - a sketch by Laura.

I am also entering into Anyone for Anya challenge whose theme is Anything Goes, and Cute Card Thursday with their challenge, Swirly Girly.

I used one of the sweet Anyas from the Miss Anya Dressy collection by The Greeting Farm. These are just wonderful images to work with.

I coloured my image with copic markers and distressed my papers with distress inks, then I edged them with vintage photo. The papers are from MME Christmas Glitter Stack. The sentiment is SeeD's.

My next card is for both Basic Grey and Just Magnolia challenges. I followed the sketch on BG and worked to Just Magnolia criteria which was to create a card for someone special. My papers are Basic Grey's Eskimo Kisses and the image is Tilda with Gift. Again, I used copic markers to colour my image and distress inks on my papers. I applied some Star Dust stickles to the trim on Tilda's hat and coat.. and to the flower on the gift. The sentiment is from a wonderful 'secret' set by Waltzing Mouse. You can see it HERE (password is

I am having my chimney cleaned this morning so I will be spending my afternoon washing down the sitting room.. then we are FINALLY putting up our christmas tree and decorations. I can't wait!! :D

Have a wonderful Tuesday!!

The Anya card is so simple and sweet. Me likey, especially the sentiment with the holly leaves. OK OK I don't really know if they're "holly" leaves, but I know they're Christmasy and I like them!
