Christmas is for children...

but aren't we all children, Christmas day...

Happy Monday friends. This is a big week and I hope it is starting off well for everyone. :)
I'm on the run again but I do have time to share this card I made and guess what? I broke my record and got THREE challenges done with this one... yeah! I used the TGF sketch #3 from their 12 days of sketches challenge, the color scheme comes from this week's Cupcake Inspiration Challenge and because it's a Christmas card (no surprise there) it also works for this week's Anyone for Anya challenge... whew! :)

So you could probably tell I did a bit of altering on this one too. I used the little Anya head from the Spa set (the one in the bathtub) and had to wipe a bit of the bubbles away from her cheek and re-draw her jaw line but still a pretty simple repair. Then I combined it with little Alice Anya's body from the Signature set. Once I had her body all together I gave her some presents from the free Birthday Ian digi that I shrunk down to the same small size as the mini Anya. Add another mini Ian and some more presents and voila... instant Christmas morning happiness. :)
Can I just say that I am still really diggin' these mini Anyas and hope that we see more (including Ians) from TGF in the future... hint, hint, hint! ;) I'm so subtle... LOL!

Alrighty it's time for work, later dudes!
