It really was a huge pleasure meeting up with all you ladies..((( big hugs)))

Now.. what did I buy? .. Yes, I can hear a few impatient voices shouting at their screens!! lol


Hmmmm, sure does look like alot when its all crammed on a picture like this!!!
But, it’s not all for meΒ πŸ™‚ …
I’ve got a Birthday Candy give away coming up so that’s my excuse, and I’m sticking with it!!!! LOL

At the moment I’m trying to put everything away in my craft room..
this then became a big problem as I didn’t have space left to put as much as a sheet of rub-ons..
so now my daughters are thrilled to bits with a big box of ‘older’ stash eachΒ that they now have to play with πŸ™‚


On to my card!!

This is the first time I’m entering the ANYONE FOR ANYA? challenge blog..
This week it is a lovely sketch by DawneyP
[So sorry we didn’t get to meet up yesterday sweetie!!!, can’t wait for Birmingham!]


My card is made entirely from CazΒ stash that I kindly was allowed to use while I was at Caz’s house πŸ™‚
[Thanks hunnie!!!]

I’ve stamped Miss Anya first and masked her, I then stamped Ian slightly behind her to make the couple.

They are coloured with Copics, loving this colour combo!

Used a nestie label die to cut the couple out and handcut the border around it.. finished my card with the sentiment and sticky pearl dots.

Thanks for the challenge and thanks so much for looking,

Have a fabulous day all,

    Hi Marlene
    I regularly follow your blog as well as Bev’s (she’s in the photo with you)
    Never realized you were at Ally Pally. I was there too on the Hotshot crafts stand demoing Promarkers ( I will be at the NEC too). I would have loved to have met all of you in person. Was Rach (papercraftsbyrach) there too? I follow her blog also. All your blogs are great and the cards always inspirational. I teach card lessons in Wolverhampton so the inspiration from all of you is great.
    By the way your Anya and Ian card is superb. Just waiting for my stamps to come
    Love SarahXXX
