Well with the introduction of another great challenge I couldn't resist having a go at this week's Anyone For Anya sketch. It really is a gorgeous layout and there's so much inspiration from the team.
I used this sweet wintery Miss Anya to create my very first Christmas card for this year! I coloured her with Polys and Koh pencils and added some Stickles to the white bits. I picked up the scrummy paper a few weeks back but I'm not sure who it's made by. I added some raffia ribbon sent to me by the lovely Carole and die cut some Sizzix snowflakes using some paper scraps. The green flowers are Prima and the brads and red ribbon are from my stash.
Now I have some very exciting news to tell you about a new range of stamps and a Design Team call to coincide with the launch. If you haven't already seen the amazing cards made by the lovely and very talented Janny using the new stamps, hop across to her blog now for a taster. The stamps will be available very shortly here at Michelle's Scrapbooking and I love every single one of these gorgeous designs. Here's some information about the call:

Good luck if you decide to enter too, you haven't got long!!
Well I'm off to get some tea now as I have a very hungry family looking at me with those pleading eyes, lol!
Have a fantabulous weekend and I'll catch up with you all a bit later. Just a reminder before I go that my candy finishes on Sunday and there's still plenty of time to enter.
Cardmaking is my passion and I love sharing tips and ideas with other talented crafters. I wake up with ideas buzzing around in my head and go to sleep the same way. My family think I'm bonkers but that's fine by me. I have an ever-growing wishlist, made worse by all the wonderful cards I see when hopping around on a daily basis. I have made some wonderful friends through my hobby, long may it continue!!

I am extremely flattered if you take inspiration from the things I make and would be happy to visit you and see your work if you have used my designs as a base for creating your own projects.
