Geisha Anya for the JCBC-blog

Goodmorning everyone,
I hope you all had a nice weekend and were spoiled on Valentines day. Hubby brought me some beautifull flowers and the girls coloured a lot of their favorite Anya stamps for me.
We always think those kind of days are just good for one thing... commerce. When you buy flowers/roses in the week before Valentines day you pay a lot of money for them and if you buy them today you pay half. It's more special when I get flowers on a ordinary day of the week.
That doesn't mean I wasn't happy with them, I still think it's so sweet when hubby get's me flowers and when the girls make something special on which they are very proud.
But today it's an ordinary Monday, so that means a new sketch on the JCBC-blog. This weeks sketch is made by Kristin.
Just like the girls I adore those cute Anya stamps. I used the sweet Geisha download. Those downloads are really great for making small cards. You can resize them into any size you want.
But that's not all I made with this cute Geisha. Ruby and Britt have been colouring a lot of their favorite Anya's this weekend, but yesterday afternoon they wanted to do something else. I suggested them to make a beautifull painting. they love to paint, but we don't do that very often because they don't just paint the canvas, they also paint themselfs, the table and chairs.
And what did they paint?... a Anya mermaid. I used transfering papers to draw the lines and they painted it. Thought this was such a great idea, I made a Anya geisha myself. Who said Anya stamps are just for stamping and cardmaking. I also made a giftbox for this painting, makes a great gift for a little girls birthday.

Don't want to leave you without showing you the paintings Ruby and Britt made.
They would love to hear what you all think about their masterpeices. So hop over to their blog and leave them a comment
