Happy Birthday to Anyone for Anya? Blog Hop!

I am super excited to be a part of this fabulous & fun Blog Hop today happening at Anyone For Anya? We're so excited to be turning ONE! If you came here from the AFA blog you are in the right place! If not, please be sure to check it out for all the FUN details about our PRIZES this week. As we talked about how to celebrate we all decided to give YOU our loyal followers this presents with our own little blog candy! All you have to do to be entered is participate in our challenge this week which is to make a fun birthday card to celebrate with us! We'll announce the winner next week with our new challenge! I can't wait to see what everyone makes & my gift for you will be the super cute digital Cupcake Anya you see featured on my card today. I just loved her when she was released this month & HAD to get my hands on her, so when I saw her peeking thru at me on my desk this week I knew she would get colored up for this special day.
For my card, I used this week's Mojo Monday sketch which I thought was SOOO much fun. At first I wasn't sure I could handle it but then I saw this pretty lace in my messy bin of sorts & it kinda just came together after that - don't you love it when that happens - I do!! I picked up that fun cupcake paper at Archiver's one day and colored her with copics to match. Then I used my ever neglected stickles & that puffy white stuff I can never remember the name of to add yummy texture to that cupcake! LOL Of course I had to add some bling to her bows b/c this IS a special occassion. Ok, so I just LOVE how this card turned out and have been displaying it on my desk since. Hehe, not sure this one will be given away....just yet anyway. :)
So, without further adieu, your next stop on this super fun hop is CAZ. Oh, just wait until you see what she has whipped up for your viewing delight!

For the complete list & order of our blog hop today, please check out the Anyone for Anya? blog!
