Anyone for Anya? and Snippets!

Hey, guys! I hope you're all well! I've not been around as much as I'd like, mainly because I've begun the Gigandor Super-splat Tidy Up and Chuck Out - well, the old man will be retiring in 8 years, when we expect to move, so I ought to get a start on clearing out now, so I have enough time!!!

This is my first card of 2012 - I know, it's shocking! It's 3 weeks since I carded!!

Anyone for Anya? has a lovely sketch this week and I have a teenage girl's birthday coming up, so lovely Miss Anya Winter jumped out of the stamps drawer!

I used Promarkers and one of the Flexmarkers that my lovely hubby got me for Christmas to colour her, and Ice Stickles on her muff and fur trim. I distressed the oval with Milled Lavender ink, and stickled around the edge. I used a Nestie for the frame, and the pearls are from Whiff of Joy.

The sentiment is also TGF, I think, and the scroll is also by Spellbinders. I cut it from card and also shiny purple paper which I think was originally wrapping paper, but it's years'n'years old! I used a Magnolia doohickey die and the same paper for the swirl. The wide ribbon is from stash, the flowers are Wild Orchid, dabbed here and there with more stickles, and the leaves are made with a Nellie Snellen punch.

All the paper (Daisy Bucket, I think) and card are from my snippets boxes, huzza! So once again I'll be playing at Pixie's Crafty Snippets Challenge. Do go and see!

Okeydokey, time to stop blethering and leave you in peace! Thanks for looking, and have a great weekend, everyone!

love Mags B x

Promarkers and (Flexmarkers): I've lost my list, but I know I used Blush, Dusky Pink, Pastel Pink; Lavender, Orchid, Imperial Purple(F); Sky Blue, Arctic Blue, Powder Blue

Hi mags thank you for commenting on my card. This is beautiful I totally adore the colours, design and that image it looks superb. It is funny because I have been thinking about getting a card done for this challenge and I picked out the exact same image as you I got as far as colouring her in so I don't think I will make it in time, but yours is ACE.

Hi Mags, I was sure I'd commented on this little beauty but perhaps you have comment moderation turned on and haven't released my comment as yet. Still doing the mahoosive tidy up perhaps? Just wanted to say how much I love this card, perfect image for a Winter birthday and the flowers are beautiful. Great use of snippets too :)) Di xx
