A bit of altering

Hola chicas!
You've still got today and most of tomorrow to get entered into this week's blog candy... just go here.
If you've been curious about how I alter stamps (like Birthday Anya on today's card) then you might want to head on over to the Club Anya blog. I've got a little tutorial up that walks you through my process. And this isn't just for Anyas, it works on any stamp you might want to change up a bit.

So I wanted to have some fun with this Christmas card. Doesn't Anya look like that girl at the office party who with just one more drink will be dancing on a table or sitting on Santa's lap? LOL
I had the perfect papers and embellishments in my stash so I went for it. Ya gotta go a little crazy once in a while right? ;)
Now to figure out who to send it too... Supply list:
cardstock- Bazzill and GP
paper, martini rub-on and epoxy dots- KI Memories
stamps- The Greeting Farm (Birthday Anya) Inkadinkado (mistletoe)
ink- Memento tuxedo black and Colorbox lipstick red chalk ink
Scrapworks alpha rub-ons
ranger Stickles
Copic multiliner pens 0.3 and 0.5
Copic markers:
skin- E01, E11, E13, R20, R22
hair- Y21, Y23, YR21, YR24
clothes- R35, R37, R39, R46, C3, C5, C7, C9, YG01, YG03, YG25, E40, E41
mistletoe- YG03, YG23, YG93, E40, R35, R37, R39, R46
