Miss Anya

Good Afternoon!! I hope you are all having a lovely day! :)

I have a little 4"x4" card to share with you today using a new stamp of mine from The Greeting Farm! :) I'm going to try and make this a quick post, as I have been typing none stop for about 2 hours and I'm in need of fooood!! :)

When I sat down to make this card I knew I wanted to use this gorgeous Anya, so I had a look around the challenge blogs. I loved the colours for the colourQ challenge this week - so I thought I would give it a go. Although I couldn't find any Bordering Blue, I thought the Marina Mist would be close enough..

Here she is..

Isn't she a sweetie? :) I love her orange dress - coloured with ProMarkers, of course.

Here is a close up of that gorgeous ribbon. Its one of the 'In Colours' from SU! - Pear Pizzaz - stitched polytwill, that my very nice friend Roz kindly sent me. :) Yum. If anyone has read my previous post you will know that I have ran out of 'E's in my brown alpha stickers from Jenni Bowlin - I don't know what I'm going to do!! LOL! I'll have to improvise next time!!

I have been getting a bit lazy of late with my supply lists, I know not many people will be interested in what I have used, but I do it for myself too to keep track of the stuff I have used! :)

Cardstock: SU! Marina Mist
Stamps: TGF - Miss Anya Dressy, SU! standard wheel - Baroque Border
Ink: Memento - Tuxedo Black, SU! - Blue Bayou, Distress Ink - Old Paper
Ribbon: SU! - Pear Pizzaz stitched polytwill
Letters stickers: Jenni Bowlin - Circle Alpha reverse brown
Tools: WRMK - Corner Chomper, Imaginisce - i-Top
Die: Nestabilities - Labels Four
Misc: white gel pen, Faded Jeans Distress Stickles, Prima Orange gems & Brown flowers, ProMarkers
