Anyone for Anya? Color Challenge!

hi everyone! Sorry this is late - I had an awesome time coloring with friends at Archiver's last night and had my card made in time but then I couldn't find my camera!!! I knew I had it just moments before but totally couldn't find it. We ended up finding it after 2am and all was right in the world again. LOL Oh, where was it? In my purse!!!

So, today our challenge at Anyone for Anya? is a color challenge! Take a look at this dreamy picture:


Isn't that chair beautiful? I love painted chairs. Our girls have painted chairs especially for them. It's so whimsical and unique to each of them. Here is what I created:


I love CC-Thursday! I just love her no non sense attitude. I had a blast coloring her with my copics. Since today is my mom's birthday - Happy Birthday, Mom! I love you. I wanted to make a birthday card - however, this isn't HER birthday card. I'm so bummed though, it's snowing already when it wasn't supposed to start until tonight so I think we will have to postpone her birthday celebration - I don't know HOW this cake is going to make it until next weekend. LOL The girls made it while I was at Archiver's last night. Now I picked up this adorable paper and chipboard stickers with the banners and knew it would be perfect. I used some twine to attach the banner together. I had a lot of fun putting this card together. Then, I had to make my rolled paper flowers because I just picked up this nifty little petal roller last night and just had to try it out! Now, I have to admit, I LOVE this little tool. I thought, eh, what is the big deal, I always just used my paper piercer to start rolling my flowers in the past, BUT this tool has a cool seperated tip to hold your end while you roll - I rolled these 3 flowers in HALF the time it would've taken me before. LOVE it.

So, I hope you will join us this week in this fun color challenge. We have an awesome sponsor this week and you can win All this by Jacobi.

Lovin this one! A while back I was looking for a birthday card for a friend. I wanted a real ball busting card. I had zero luck finding what I was looking for. I told a group of friends about this problem one night while we were having a few drinks. We proceeded to get smashed and make up a bunch of greeting cards we found funny. I had been writing down the cards we made up and the next morning I read them. Much to my surprise the cards were still funny even when sober.

So cute, Carisa! I love the painted chair and your card is beautiful. I love the colours, the banner, the rolled flowers and the look on the girl's face!

Hi Carisa, love this image and now I feel like she needs to meet the ink pad, lol. Sorry if I have made you purchase the simply sassy stamps, you could always enter for the GDT, then you will get free stamps, lol.

Can't see me on your sidebar in the Make It Colourful team :(

Hugs Tracy x
