Club Anya Holiday Blog Hop!

Hello and welcome to the Club Anya Holiday Blog Hop!!

Hasn't the eye candy so far been PHENOM?!?!! I am always in complete awe at what Anya fans create with these awesome characters! Seeing all your jaw dropping cards everyday makes me question my skills on a daily basis, so I hope you all enjoy this card as much as I enjoy seeing all of yours. :)

I needed a Christmas card to give my daughter's preschool teachers next week, so I decided to team up one of my favorite Anyas, Teacher Anya and this week's Card Patterns #45 sketch to create this card for them. This past summer, one of her teachers had streaks of purple throughout her hair (because she likes the highlights it left after the color faded) so I had to add the strip of purple to the brunette Anya! Her other teacher is a blonde. Syd's class also has an assistant teacher, so when I have some time this week, I'm going to add one more Anya to the inside of the card to finish it off.

Syd and I are baking some cookies this weekend for her teachers and the kids in her class to go along with this card, so this will be the pièce de résistance! Oh who am I kidding?! The cookies are the icing on the cake! LOL
