My first venture into Miss Anya!

Hi All,

Well I was bad at the weekend and had a bit of a treat myself time, spent far too much money but am hiding the receipts so it'll stay our little secret! Among my purchases were the greeting farm's miss anya set. Have spent a few days playing with them and I love them already!!!

Here's a card I made with one, which also works for these challenges:
Moving Along with The Times - I used their sketch

Whimsy Stamps Challenge - Recipe challenge: We want you to create a project using 2 different patterned papers (or create your own papers with different techniques), 1 ribbon, and 3 embellishments such as brads, buttons, or flowers.

Creative Card Crew - Whatever the Weather

Stampin' For the Weekend - I used "Time of the Season - Zombies " as inspiration

Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge - Pink and Green

I coloured Anya with twinkling H2Os and used my sakura glaze pen in clear to highlight the buttons and her hair clip.

Oh, my other favourite new purchase is the MS doily border punch which you can see I've used here.
Papers are Laura Ashley prints for Dovecraft.
Ribbon is adhesive ribbon from making memories Kids Max set.
Flowers are prima fabric flowers.
Brads are making memories mini circle pastel ones.
I hand wrote the sentiment using my black sakura glaze pen and then back it on some pink paper, the same colour as the doily border.

Hope you like it! Pictures havent come out very well as I've got a rubbish camera and rubbish light!!!
