Beanie Anya...

Hi everyone! I'm back with another FFF challenge, and combined with Jen's Saturday Sketch challenge from Club Anya. On FFF, it's a myster color challenge...use turquoise and black, plus one other color of choice...I chose pink and used the cutie Beanie Anya! From Club Anya, I followed the fabulous sketch by Jen, and here is the result...

Beanie Anya was so much fun to color! Used only a bit of gloss on her boots and hair ties, and added a rhinestone for her button. The flowers and clip are from Joy, dp is Basic Grey's Olivia, and the pretty ribbon I found at Michael's. Okay...this is getting me in the mood for Valentine's Day cards!

Thanks for stopping by! ;)

FFF - Mercy's Sketch...

Hi everyone! I've been working on a small project, but I can only share a small part of it for now. I used a fun, fun sketch from Mercy over at TGF's FFF current challenge... and this adorable  New Year Anya!

Inspired by Amy Y.'s card, I used similar colors of black and silver, and added some pink. The sparkles of silver makes Anya so ready for a formal party to ring in the new year!

The dp is from DCWV glitter mat stack, ribbons and rhinestones are from Michael's, and the silver flower with pearls are from my old stash of wedding favors supplies. that's it for now...

Happy New Year...

Hi everyone and Happy New Year!! Can't believe 2011 is here...ten years has passed since the "millenium"...seems like it was just year 2000 yesterday! 2010 seemed to have flown by so quickly (like all the past years), and one of the many fond memories during this past year was starting my own blog and meeting so many sweet, talented, and generous ladies! Thank you to my followers and all the sweet comments. It truly is inspiring!! *•-:¦:-•:*'''''*:•-:¦:-•*!!*•-:¦:-•:*'''''*:•-:¦:-•*!!*•-:¦:-•:*'''''*:•-:¦:-•*!!*•-:¦:-•:*'''''*:•-:¦:-•*!!*

Now, onto my card...

This image is from Ching-Chou Kuik's collection called Koi, and you can find this and many other beautiful images here at Sweet Peas Stamps. I actually got this stamp a while ago, but was kinda scared to ink it up because I didn't think I could color it like the beautiful samples made by the DT on the Sweet Peas Stamps Blog. But because the image itself is gorgeous, it wasn't as difficult as I thought. I saw this zigzag fold on Kim's blog, and thought it would be perfect layout to highlight the image.

This card fits these challanges:
Lollipop Crafts - Fancy folds
In a Sweet Dream - Ribbons and bows
Stamp Something - Something with glitter

Wishing everyone a healthy, happy new year!!
