Miss Any in Pink and Blue

It's amazing how long it took me to make this relatively simple card. I must be the world's most indecisive crafter. I've used my favourite Miss Anya and given her a haircut, what do you reckon? I think it suits her. The papers are by Shabby Princess probably one of my favourite kits, I just love these colours together. Anyway it's my birthday today and to celebrate I'm giving away a Miss Anya Rain, Snow, Shine set. I ordered them direct from the US last week so they haven't actually arrived yet. Hopefully they'll be here by the end of the week. If you would like to be included in the draw leave a comment to let me know by 5pm UK time this Friday 22 May. If you leave a comment without mentioning the draw I'll assume you don't want to be included. Would prefer it if you didn't publicise this on your blogs. Good luck.!

Mayjasper said...

Hi Julie, another amazing card. How refreshing to see characters with skin colour other than white. Obviously with characters you colour its everyone's choice but it staggers me that images of people on Craft CDs are all white. Sorry to be having a gripe when I should be wishing you a happy birthday. I'd love the chance to win these stamps as I'm skint. Thanks for your generous gift.

Kind regards

pickle said...

Very Happy Birthday to ya Julie. Hope you have had a lovely day!! Get any lovely new crafty stash?

I am lovin Miss Anya with her new do, she looks V funky. Might have to pinch that idea! You have made another stunning card with her and you are deffo not the most indecisive lol can take me all day to choose the papers and then another faffing about moving the papers around the card lol.

I would absolutely love to be in your birthdqy draw for the set of Anyas I am drooling just thinking about winning them lol thanks for the chance to win it's very kind of you.

Caryn said...

Just found you fabulous blog through Katy (Katy's Bloggeroo) and just wanted to say hi. I love your designs and flair for colour. I have tried to do dark skin on a few stamps and failed miserably - any tips? I have a friend whose little girl I would love to make a card for but I want her to be Asian rather than peely wally like me!!!

Anyway, would appreciate any tips if you have the time.

Oh my goodness, I adore this. I love what you have done with the hair, she now looks exactly like a friend of mine, I would never have seen it before!" I might have to 'nick' this idea to do a card for her. Thanks for sharing.
