Miss Anya Dressy...*finally*

So I've been complaining and bemoaning to Nina about my difficulties with Miss Anya Dressy. Haha. Actually I've been doing alot of complaining...I think it started when I found out TJ's discontinued my beloved Tomato Chutney. Oh. My. God. No warning and I didnt even have time to stock up on like 27 jars. I dont think people quite understand how sad this is, I go through a jar like every two weeks. It was soo good...

But I digress.

I've been complaining b/c as much as I *love* Miss Anya Dressy, she's been the bane of my existence. I've tried multiple times to make a card with her, but just having found a color combo that I really like. Enter Pam's fabby dabby Wild Card Wednesday's challenge - paper piecing. I swear if had not been for her challenge, Miss Anya Dressy might still be sitting in my sad and discarded reject pile.

I colored her with my "other" blonde combo b/c my Y21 marker died on me. I paper pieced her dress with My Mind's Eye Be Loved paper. I know I'm a bit behind the curve, I think most people got this uber awesome dp months ago. But what can I say, I'm like the sheep that falls of the cliff hours after the other sheep have gone over.

Baaaaahhhh...(I think staying up late watching the Olympics has made me a bit batty...)

  1. Pretty! Nice job on the hair coloring, despite the death of your Y21. I dig the color combo and the paper piecing is super groovy! :)

  2. Just fabulous!! I know what you mean about not getting on with certain stamps though! Lovin' the paper piecing
