Happy New Year!

I hope everyone had a good time last night! I must admit, I did feel a wee bit fragile this morning! It was the bubbles in the champers that did it, I'm sure, and not the bottle of wine that my old man and I had polished off before midnight struck!!

I've made this card for my sister: before Christmas I stayed with her to help her clean her house (which was left in an awful state by the people who'd rented it last year) so I think she'll appreciate poor Anya overwhelmed by the laundry!

The stamp came from the wonderful Dies to Die For in the summer, and this is the first time I've inked her! How shocking is that when she's so cute??!

Papers are from the Porcelain stack by Basic Grey, which I bought at the Ally Pally in the spring. I've stickled the edges but otherwise left off the embellies, as I think it looks ok without. The MS punches came from the AP, too.

I'm entering this card for the anyone for Anya? challenge, which this week is a sketch. The sketch seems to ask for a shaped card, but none of my nesties is big enough, so I used good old Martha instead.

ok, off to make the tea! It's quite nice to be getting back into the usual routine after several weeks of chaos!

Thanks for looking

luv, Mags

Hi Mags,
The bubbles got me too! :) Love your card. Don't worry about the nesties, you can still see the sketch.
Happy New Year!
