Peace, Love, and Anya!


WOO-HOO! I'm halfway through my TGF 12 Days of Sketches cards and this one is my favorite one of the bunch! The colors are so much better IRL - it was another gray, snowy day when this was taken. Day 6 featured a fabulous and versatile sketch by Cindy Haffner, but I stayed true to the original (time was becoming a factor at this point; although, obviously not enough of one!) If you haven't hopped over to the TGF blog, be sure to do so and check out the awesome creations by the DT and Farmers and Guests! SO much eye candy and inspiration!

I JUST LOVE THIS HIPPIE ANYA!
Thanks and {hugs} to my stampin' sister Michelle for sending her to me as part of an awesome card kit!! That green Prima (I didn't have any green ones!) and the little "love" charm were part of her kit, too. (Can't wait to play with the other goodies in there!) I was gifted the cool frosty heart charm from Karen, another stampin' sister! I just threaded some DMC floss around it to mimic a peace sign.

I have someone in mind for this card who, by her own admission, would have been a hippie flower child had she grown up in the San Fran area. LOL! I used more of my fav paper from K&Company because the colors are perfect for her. And I have been dying to use this yummy ribbon that yet another stampin' sister Paola sent me eons ago! Once again, the perfect card presented itself for things that I am hoarding!

I hope you enjoyed this card as much as I do! Thanks for stopping by today!
And Peace, Love, and Stampin', baby!

Super cute! I mean "groovy"! LOL!
Normally I'm opposed to anything hippie (Dad's a Vietnam War Vet), but this is still adorable! Love the colors & papers, and the ribbon/trim is TDF! Love the "love" charm with the heart and flower, and the raindot peace sign is priceless! Great job with the sketch and fab job using your stash items! YGG!

Hurray for another sister using up the stash. It's so silly to keep the things when we can make such amazing cards with them! I love this lady and you've done her up perfectly! I love all the pieces - it's perfect!
