Anya at Christmas~

Hi All~

Today was the day of my monthly "Cut and Chat" meet up with the girls.
It's lovely to get togther with friends and craft, mind you it's called "Cut and Chat" for a reason, there is alot of CHAT goes on!! (mostly by me!)

We all had a great time doing what we love to do, together.
I started the group in April. I asked 9 friends if they were interested and could make a set day a month, then hired a local hall for £10 an hour, and we use it for 2 hours once a month on a Monday afternoon, easy.... It's not got a set theme, it's bring whatever you want to work on and have fun chatting, crafting and drinking coffee/tea.
I have never organised anything like this before, so If I can do it, you can, go on give it a go, it's really great.....
Today was our fourth meet up since starting, gosh four months have flown by, where does the time go? Stop the world I wanna get off!!
Today at the group I did a spot of Scrapbooking, but I am not showing them on the blog sorry, I cannot show someone's photo's without asking them....But I have a card to share with you instead, I hope you like it.

I am going to be well set up with Christmas Cards by Christmas...As you can see I am off again making another one!!
I was told today that there are only 152 days to Christmas....I think I threw something at the person who said it!!
Anyway, forget that, and get card making~
I have chosen an image of Anya, and this lovely sketch. The papers used are MME again, The white border was made with a MS border punch and I found a metal snowflake in my brad box, and coloured it with a pink copic . The image was also Coloured with copics.

I have chosen a few Christmas challenges for this card, details below:

Anya Ink--christmas in July
Anyone for Anya--Sketch
Cupcake Challenge--Pastel Christmas
Die Cut Dreams--Christmas Delight
Stamptacular Sunday--Xmas in July
