Creative Inspiration CHALLENGE Blog

Good morning,
Today I have my card for Creative Inspiration Challenge Blog. I have been a guest designer for the last 4 weeks and Nat has ask me to be on the team full time.!! I said yes as I love this challenge!!!. It is always different. Sometimes colors, maybe a sketch or just a theme. You need to come over there on Wednesdays and play it is so fun!!! The challenge for this week is for the colors Blue and Brown. So I was looking at this very cute little Anya image that a special friend of mine sent to me. **WAVING*** ( you know who you are) :o) I was thinking that maybe if I did this fun little image the weather here would cool down!! LOL... It's still over 110 F* everyday... So when making this card I was doing the wishful thinking kind of thing.. :o)

I have mixed and matched my paper like normal for me. Cut out a few snowflakes and layered them. I added stickles to make them sparkle and put different things in the middle of each. I have also done some decorative stitching on this card and I love the effect it has. As you can see I added a few brads, ribbons and a button...

Hope you will leave me a comment as I love to hear from you.
Have a great a wonderful day!!!
hugs, janny

Such a gorgeous card, Janny! Many many congrats for joining the Creative Inspirations challenge - woo-hoo!! I have this exact same Miss Anya half-coloured on my crafting table at the moment - just trying to decide what papers to use! I wish it was 110F here - we've had absolutely no summer, and it's been cold and wet for most of August! Hugs, Sem xx
