Anya and Ian

Hi everyone! I hope you are having a a wonderful Wednesday! I started the day off by heading to Target with the kids and trying to get some good deals couponing. It's EXHAUSTING, let me tell you! If you've ever been exasperated with someone in front of you in line for having coupons, I deplore you to give it a try ONCE and I promise you will learn patience for people. And I don't mean clip a couple coupons and save a dollar. I mean, clip store and manufacturer coupons, match them up with sales and try to get things for 50-75% off retail. It's WORK!

Ok, enough of my rant! How about an Anya card? I made this last week loosely based on the Card Positioning Systems sketch but never got around to blogging it. The green paper is cut with Nesties Labels 1 (2 pieces of it) but you can't tell once I layered Anya on their. Sigh... What can you do? Those little swirly bling pieces are Colorbok. I can't find them anymore and I NEED more. If you know of where to get them, please let me know! I love the relatively small size of them, so nice for cards! I used to get them at Joann but mine doesn't sell them anymore.

Next up is a card I featured on the Paper Maniac blog this week. I made this to keep in my stash of kids birthday cards since my kids go to birthday parties ALL the time! And lots of little guys like football, right? I'm also entering this into the Copic Creations challenge this week, the challenge was to color some orange. Ummm, this was a better idea in my head. It kind of looks like Ian plays for team Citrus Fruit or something. :) But bright and happy colors are good for kids, right?

Hope you all have a great day! Hugs!
