And the only explanation I can find Is the love that I've found ever since you've been around, Your love's put me at the top of the world .........
Oh if only I could sing I would be singing it to you lovely people out there in blogland -really I would and for those that know me know I am pretty excitable and this just has to be one of those days!!
After the past two weeks of kids with broken toe, flooding the bathroom resulting in water pouring through ceiling (yes my own fault couldn't even pass the buck on that one !!) and skating injury for my youngest resulting in bruisin on chin, head, shoulders and a complete nail being ripped out whole, yes whole, no nail just raw flesh it was nasty! (hope you haven't just eaten!)
Well onto my good news, I awoke to find I had received this lovely award from the lovely Maree
How sweet is this such a lovely award- thank you so so much, it also needs to be passed on to 10 lovely people so this is going to be hard so I will be drawing names out of a hat for this one. ( I am going on hols so may have to do this when I back hope you don't mind x)
For my next news I also made Top Five over at Cupcake Craft Challenge this week, thank you girlies I am so chuffed!!! Look to the right for my brand new shining blinkie :)
Now then, could things get any better - Oh yes they most certainly can...............................I ONLY WENT AND WON THE MYSTERY GOODY BAG OVER AT THE FANTASTICALLY TALENTED MARLENES A LIL BIT OF ME (thankyou Marlene x)
Obviously I haven't got a clue what I have won (bit of a giveaway in the title "Mystery goody bag" lol!!!!! but am I one excited bunny as it wasn't a random person picked you had to make Marlene giggle and luckily she chose me, so I am sure you have visited Marlene's blog before but if not check out her super duper cards and you can also see my funny story!!

Yeah I know - not that good and slightly blurry but you may be able to see the glossy accents on the balloons and ladybug, but believe me the stars, sprinkles and streamers have stickles on them and they sparkle a treat!!!

My new and neglected items are my tulle(craftsulove) that I keep forgetting to add to my cards and only remember when I have finished one (so annoying!) and also my image which was kindly stamped out by a friend - forgot I had them, but what a nice find!

I said I would be back with another Anya and here I am feeling a little silly now!!
I made this card a couple of days ago from a sketch over at Sketch and Stash challenge blog, but when I went to upload to show all you lovelies - Do you think I could remember where I saw the sketch ?
Note to ones self "write down where the sketch is from!"
Ooh how frustrating it was hunting it down as this was the 1st time I had stumbled across this challenge blog, and when I did finally find it they had moved on to the next sketch!!!
Waaaaaaggghhhh :) what a donut I am or as my kids would say "DUFUS !!"
Anyway I hope you like my card I have used my Kohinoor pencils and copics for the fleshy bits!!
Lots of sparkle on my card but alas I am no David Bailey!!!
Oh well hope to be back tomorrow with the new sketch.
Thank you all for my lovely comments on my previous card - you obviously love Anyas as much as me x

Just had to pop on and and tell you about some serious candy, well it is in my eyes - if there is one thing I would like at the moment it would have to be this fantastic duo of Martha Stewart punches!
If you would like the chance to win do pop along to Papercrafts by Rach and check out her wonderful creations they are amazing, grab yourself a cuppa as you will not want to leave!
Good luck to everyone !!
What a lovely day it looks to be at the moment, lots of sunshine, glorious sunshine!!!
Let's hope it stays that way!
Todays card is created by using the sketch over at The Sugar Bowl and the added extra of "doodling" - now this was fun, as you can see I was a little doodle happy and looking at it now I may have gone a little bit over the top, but Hey ho I will let you decide that one!
I think the papers were Dovecraft and the little squares at the bottom with the greeting were gold square peel offs written in the middle, cut out and raised on sticky pads.
Hope to be doing a spot of gardening today along with the washing, cleaning etc, etc ............
Good luck if you are joining in the challenge :)
