Anyone for Anya and a few Christmas cards

Today's challenge at the Anyone for Anya blog is to just make anything! I love those kinds of challenges! LOL Here is my entry, using digi image Elf Anya and some non-Christmasy colors (Lavender Lace and Certainly Celery) and turned into a birthday card:

I can't stamp or make cards lately without making at least a couple of Christmas cards. It's been nice, though, because I suddenly realized I had almost 100 Christmas cards done! WOO HOO! It was actually fun this way, instead of feeling like a chore because I HAD TO sit down and make 100 cards. So anyway - here are the 2 I made yesterday:

Above card uses Betty Tree Costume, digi image by Pink Cat Studio. Colors are SU! Real Red, Certainly Celery, and Close to Cocoa.

Below is a digi image by Robyn's Fetish, colors are SU! Very Vanilla, Bravo Burgundy, More Mustard, and Old Olive.

We got our first snow of the season last night - a couple of inches. It looks pretty out there this morning. We are getting our first artificial tree today - my husband hates real trees. He hates the mess, the smell, everything. So we don't usually get our tree until a couple of days before Christmas, and then we take it down either Christmas Day or the day after. So this year, with a fake tree, I can put it up a couple of weeks early and won't have to take it down the second that Christmas is over! Yay! :) I am lucky to have the week off from Christmas to New Year's (the college that I work at shuts down), so I always have time to get my house back in order from the chaotic holidays before I return to work.

I'll be back later with some more cards, probably for a few challenges. Peace.


  1. You are so wise to have so many made! With Lili coming more and more, I am actually using some of my old stash of ~!!!gasp!!!~ store bought cards for some people this year!! Shhh- don't tell anyone!

    Enjoy your new tree! As much as I love fresh pine, a faux one makes life so much easier!

  2. Cute cards! I just colored that Robyns Fetish image this weekend too. I will be making it into a card tonight!

  3. I like it a lot that you used the image twice, looking good!

    Love from AFA!
