Finally Friday

Yes, I'm late posting again but today I'm not sorry at all... it's my day off, I slept in, had a nice hot breakfast and it was goooooooooooooooood! LOL

But I'm here now and ready to chat it up a bit. :)
If you've been over to the Club Anya blog today you've already seen this card and my little 'eye opening' tutorial. I hope you are enjoying these show & tells as much as I'm enjoying sharing them. I know I keep saying that most of the altering I do isn't that difficult to do but I think when I can actually let you see it you can really believe it.
So I gave Angel Anya some brand new open Lolli eyes and mouth for a fresh new look on this Christmas card. Rather than looking serene and peaceful I wanted her to be more joyous and I think I got the look I was after. :)
This card also fits for this week's Anyone for Anya challenge which is a round theme. Between the circle shape of the card, the polka dot paper and all the little gems... I think I may have gone a bit over board! LOL But I really wanted to make a card that looked like an ornament so this was the perfect challenge.
Anywho, I'm looking forward to spending some time in the craft room today and then hitting the road tomorrow with both of my sisters for a girl's day birthday outing. I even get to pick where we eat so I'm already salivating for my fave Chinese place and some walnut shrimp.... mmmmmmmmm... but I promise I'll have something to share before I leave tomorrow and I won't leave ya hangin' like today. ;)
Enjoy your weekend and I hope all my Twi-hard friends out there are enjoying the new movie! :)Supply list:
