My First Anya Card

Hi Friends! Check out my very first Anya card. Anya is actually a digital stamp that I bought at the Greeting Farm. Whoohoo! I really didn't know about the Anya images until about a month ago. I just started seeing people making cards with them. I'm the sort of shopper that don't jump on the band wagon immediately. . .sometimes I'm so behind on the trend that I'll buy something when it's no longer popular. LOL! I only become an impulse shopper once I've tried something out and like it then I'll buy like a mad woman! LOL!

Anyway. . .I love this Anya image. . .oh, gosh it's so darn cute and so fun to color. . .especially her hair! LOL!

I colored my image using my Copic Markers using various colors. I think her hair is like 4 different shades from browns and yellows. I think there's even orange in there. No kidding.

I know this is a colorful card. . .Anya seem to shout out "make me colorful"! LOL! Yes, my images speak to me. . .just kidding.

Actually, I had a bunch of scrap pieces of designer paper and I wanted to use them up. I have a lot of these scrap papers. . .it's not even funny any more. I need to start finding ways to use them so don't be surprised to see more cards with a hodge-podge look to them.

Not to change the subject but I feel crappy today. I didn't craft all day yesterday and didn't blurf either. I have a cold. . .it started the other day. Strangely, it started with my right ear. . .my ear was so itchy. . not the outside, but the inside. Imagine not being able to scratch an itch. . .well, it was driving me crazy.

Throughout the course of the day, I could feel the itch and inflammation literally inching its way to my throat, my sinus cavity, across the back of my throat, to my lungs. Today, it finally worked its way to my left ear.

Well, I woke up with a full blown cold and now feel crappy. After posting this card, I think I'm going to lounge around and watch TV. I've been taking Zicam . . .it usually works so we'll see how I feel tomorrow.

Maria beautiful coloring, hope you feel better, I'd never had a ear infection or something like that, must be annoying

Heather Schlatter said...

Oh Maria!!!

You are in trouble!!! I first started seeing Anya in November and December and I thought I really do not like her and I am not going to go buy her.

Guess What???

I now own every single Anya and Ian and Miss Anya stamp there is!!! No kidding except for the Cake Topper Set and the Digi images because my printer is out of commision right now but I will be getting them as soon as my printer is back in working order!!!!!

They are addicting!!!!

If you ever have a spare moment right I know you are a busy woman my good friend from here in town and an SU downline Emily has gotten totally addicted to Anya and Ian and her last 14 or 15 cards have been Anya and Ian cards. She has such a different flair for how she does things she has a really Shabby Chic style and makes cards way different then I would ever think to make them and uses stamps in ways that are so cool like she made a card with Anya in a cup she drew and used her swirls stamps and made it look like the cup was pouring coffee and Princess Anya out it was really cute, and she made Ian in a sleeping bag too!!!

her blog is

Well Maria I have more posts to go check out since I have been sick for a couple of days and I never want to miss out on any or your great cards!!!
