Whoo.... the day is here for
the Club Anya Holiday Blog Hop!!!
My Math is pretty bad... but luckily I found a "timezone converter online and I'm pretty sure this post is scheduled for 14/12 @ 7pm CST, aka. 15/12/ @ 12.pm here in Sydney, AUS.
You can find a list of all the blog hop participants at Club Anya!!
AND .... there is live chatting NOW at the PCP page.
This is the list of categories taken (and summarised) from the Club Anya blog
- create one or more card or project = HOLIDAY THEMED +ANYA OR IAN stamps...
HOLIDAY HAPPINESS AWARD - the favorite overall project.
WHO you callin' a HO HO HO award - BEST use of Santa or Mrs. Claus
ALL WRAPPED UP award - best display of altering a 3D item using Anya +/or Ian
CANDY CANE CROWN - the best use of Holiday sweets on a card or project
Now I think that between my two projects I have fulfilled the different requirements.
My first project is NOT your traditional Christmas card.....
I am in Australia where it is SUMMER time and so no White Christmas :(
This card is inspired by Colin Buchanan's "Aussie jingle bells"
(I have included some of his lyrics on my card)
I whipped up a Rusty holden ute for the front of the card
I used Acetate for the windows and so I am also
able to enter this card in the Anya Ink challenge!!
then inside... (click on the pic to read the words)
I've altered Anya to be a bit Mrs Clause'ish ... with the Santa hat
instead of her usual sunnies. Of course as it's so hot here we would
not want her sweltering in wintery clothes so Shine Anya was a perfect choice!
For my second project I altered a Corinthian wafer container and decorated it with Anyas + gingerbread men with the faces of Anya and Ian (from the Rock the Farm stamp set)....
