It's Anya Time!

Thanks for stopping by tonight!
Are you having fun looking at everyones Anya & Ian creations?

(For those of you who didn't come here by way of the Club Anya blog, you can check out the main list of participants by clicking here)

I've got three cards to share with you tonight!
The first one is brand new and the other two are ones that I have posted on my blog recently. But, I figured that most of you visiting my blog tonight haven't been here before, so I'm going to go ahead and share the last two cards again.

Here's my first card using Mermaid Anya...For this card, I used an acetate overlay and some Certainly Celery cardstock that was embossed with the Swiss Dots Cuttlebug folder.I colored in this little cutie with my Copics and added large clear beads to her hair. To finish it off, I added some Doodlebug Sugar Coating to her tail for a little shimmer.Okay, on to card #2!
This one uses the uber-adorable Princess Anya... To embellish this card, I used mini paper roses, clear stars by Heidi Swapp and Stickles.
For the crown, I used some bling and Doodlebug Sugar Coating - love that stuff.

Are you still with me?
Here's my final card for the night. This one uses Teacher Anya...
To create the chalkboard, I sponged white ink around the edges of green cardstock. I left room on the chalkboard for my daughter to write her teachers name before she gives it to her for Teacher Appreciation Week. To make the little chalk pieces, I cut up a q-tip.
