Anyone for Anya December Calendar or Thanksgiving Challenge (DT post)

Sunday, Sunday... is Anyone for Anya Challenge day. This week your challenge (should you choose to accept it!) is to make a THANKSGIVING card or creation OR finish off your birthday calendar with your DECEMBER CALENDAR PAGE. Not too difficult to guess which way I went considering:
a) I live in Australia and don't celebrate Thanksgiving
b) I have been working on this birthday calendar ALL year!

So here is my December page looking all lovely and Christmassy (yes that is how you spell it... I looked it up!) I have used the Anya stamp from The Greeting Farm's Spotlight Kit and coloured her in with Copic markers. I am not really happy with how her hair looks but had to just go with it seeing as it was my third attempt! Grrr! You should see the other two... oh wait you can't because I threw them in the recycling!
