Club Anya Holiday Blog Hop

....Welcome to the next stop on the CLUB ANYA ALL-CUSTOMER HOLIDAY BLOG HOP and RELEASE PARTY!!!
You can visit the chatter over on PCP page from 7pm CST to 10 PM CST. If you just happened here and haven't visited any of the other blog hop destinations, you can start HERE on the Club Anya blog after 7PM CST and we'll be HOPPIN' ALL NIGHT LONG!


There are going to be winners chosen for this blog hop so I decided to make 2 entries: One for THE WHO you callin' a HO HO HO award which will go to the BEST use of Santa or Mrs. Claus on a card or project and one for the the CANDY CANE CROWN which will go to the best use of Holiday sweets on a card or project-whether it's cookies, candy, cupcakes, gingerbread houses, etc...


Here is my take on Mr. and Mrs Claus hanging out in a winter wonderland.
I decided to go for a lot of shimmer on this card 5X5 square card. I used Glossy Accents and Dazzling Diamonds glitter on their cute little santa suits. I used shimmery cardstock for the snow in the background, a glittery tree and glittery snowflakes. I actually got serious and went outside to spray paint the chipboard snowflake with silver glitter spraypaint that I got at the craft store and then painted over that with Sparkle Modge Podge. The fumes made me very jolly!

My next card features Xmas Sweeties Anya surrounded by lots of sweet treats. She is hanging out on a huge candy cane.

Here is a close up of Sweetie Anya. I decided to use stickles and and a red glitter spica pen to make her suit sparkle. Doesn't she look happy? I would be that happy too if I had all of those yummy treats to eat.
