Miss Anya blooms and grows

I've been fortunate enough to have the last 3 days off work due to the bad weather, the only one at home who hasn't had to go to work, how lucky am I? The boys have still had to do their paper round which surprises me. I had hoped to make a lot more cards but seemed to have spent the time doing jobs which I didn't get done over the holidays like clearing cupboards and the kids rooms :-s I have also done a bit of quilting, watch this space for the finished article.

I made this card a couple of days ago but didn't want to post it before as its for a friend who looks at my blog.

The papers were still on my desk from the previous card and the image is from a RAK from my lovely bloggy friend Susie, thank you so much those images which are gorgeous and the prize which I won from the 'Touch of Gold' challenge at Susie's challenge blog. Just look at these lovely goodies.

I am entering this card for 2 challenges, Just Christmas and Birthday cards which is a sketch challenge and Roses on Paper which is to use your favourite colouring medium - I used copics and distress ink.

Hope you are all keeping safe and warm in this chilly weather. We have just slipped down to the local Waitrose to top up on essential supplies, I've never seen it so busy...

Just wondering if the snow forecast for this weekend will happen or not, got mixed feelings about it, would like life to return to normal but am also enjoying the unexpected time off work :-)
