I'm back.....and have finally managed to make a card worthy of participating in Anya Ink's colour challenge and, would you believe it......it worked with what I already had in mind for the current Cupcake Inspiration Challenge. Love it when that happens.
I've been making a few cards lately as I find it such good 'therapy'. Haven't had much energy or desire to get out there and face the shops or be around crowds of peeps, and its a good thing then that I love sitting at home with my great friends, Rubbah, Ink and Copic. There's a bit of a wait and see game going on with Mama in the hospital at the moment. Waiting to see what happens after surgery last week. I'm hoping things either improve slowly (or quickly, please Jesus) or don't get any worse in the least. The options available are slim and even those the surgical team can consider come with huge, huge risks.
Anyway.....I thought it was about time Flutter Anya saw some inky goodness and I just love, love, love how she's turned out. I followed this week's Saturday Sketch from Club Anya and have used the required Blue, Grey and Cream (off-white, in my case) for the Anya Ink challenge for this week.
This dear little Anya was so cute and asked me if I wouldn't mind adding a little Crystal Effects on her wings, which is a first for me. I've had it for months now and was yet to use it on any image. So, now her darling little wings are shiny, shiny, shiny and her little skirt is all sparkly, sparkly, sparkly thanks to my dear friend, Stardust Stickles. :)
And I picked up my new Cuttlebug baby yesterday and would you believe it - she's PINK!! I'm sooooooo excited. I 'broke' my green one and got a fab-o new pink baby in return!! And the "A" plate is the usual normal white plate you've all seen before. Only sad note is I had to take in all the plates from my former Cuttlebug baby......and now am missing my "C" plate as there wasn't one included with the new one. :(
