Taking a breather

Well it may not be a Friday but I have a day off from work so that is good enough for me. I can relax, regroup and do some stuff just for me... like making this card for the first Anyone for Anya challenge. The theme is Sugar&Spice and as you can see I went pretty literal with it... LOL! You can't tell me that the Doodlebug papers and glitter border stickers aren't perfect for this sweet little baker. She is actually inspired by my youngest sister, who is becoming quite the baker/cake decorator. Maybe I'll give her this card if she makes me some vanilla cupcakes with chocolate frosting... what can I say, I'm a sucker for the classics. Hint, hint, hint Jacque... ;)
Returning to the actual making of the card, I used Teacher Anya's head and body (minus her arms) and Ballerina Anya's torso layered over it... I think it works as a frilly apron...
I've also been working on my submission for the Club Anya team. Right now I've got all three cards done but I'm not 100% in love with one of them... so I may just start playing around today and see if I can't come up with something that I'll be happier with. Or maybe I should just suck it up and stop second guessing myself and send it in. Ack! Decisions, decisions I tell ya.
Allrighty, well I'm off like a cheap suit!
