Miss Anya Autumn Card and 2010 Christmas Card Challenge Week #9

First, I have some important business. I decided to make a separate blog for my Christmas Card Challenges. I will still be posting my creations here every Sunday, but the actual challenge and where you post your link will be on my Christmas Card Challenges Blog.

I decided to move it now, because if the future, I will be moving things around here on my blog. I hope that you all will continue to join me on my annual Christmas card making journey and I really appreciate all of you who play along with my challenges.

Well, this week I choose to do an inspiration challenge. I've been wishing for summer weather, so I thought it would be fun to use some bright colors. I just wish I had a Santa hat for Miss Fall Anya. I also used Unscripted Sketches #39 for this.

Paper: Basic Grey Eskimo Kisses, Sugar Rush
Stamps: The Greeting Farm, sentiment is Amuse
Snowflake Punches, PTI Buttons, Rhinestones, and Crystal Stickles


If you would like to play along with me, please link your card on the Christmas Card Challenges Blog. Thanks and everyone have a fabulous Sunday!
