Christmas Angel


Well, I'm feeling much better today! Thank you SO much for your prayers and hugz!! I truly appreciate your thoughts! It was a rough couple of days, especially since I couldn't call in sick because there were too many people off on holidays in my department. Oh well, I have a day off to recharge!!!

Here is a simple but elegant Christmas card! I have always loved this stamp set which was a Stampin' Up hostess set I believe. It was one of the first ones I ever got and it's a favourite for Christmas cards. I designed this one as an easy one to duplicate for orders (which by the way, I already have orders for 55 cards from 3 ladies at work....yikes!!).

I stamped the angel in Archival Versafine Black Onyx ink on watercolour paper. I coloured her skin with my Blush Blossom marker and then used my Aquapainter and inks to colour the rest of her.....Close to Cocoa for her hair, Elegant Eggplant for her dress, So Saffron to surround her and my Sahara Sand marker for shading her wings and the dove. I pop dotted her after matting on SS and EE cardstock and added some narrow organdy ribbon and then stamped the sentiment straight on the card base. Simple.....but lovely!

You may have noticed my attire in my Cartoon Kimmie picture there!! I don't generally dress like that everyday.....only on special occasions.... *giggle* I'm hooked on Dancin' with the Stars.....does anyone else love this show??? I have my early favourites and I must say I'm glad that Wayne is finally gone. Emileigh and I love to watch it together on Monday nights!! Anyone else watch it??

Don't forget about the contest going on to win some awesome Pink Cat Studio stamps!!! There are lots of challenges to choose from and you only have a few days left!!!

Yep, my husband and I are totally hooked on Dancing. From now on it will be very difficult to see any of the stars leave.

Oops, forgot to say, yes I'm totally hooked on Dancing with the Stars too. Also, I can't see where you have said on today's blog, but is the card base, Sahara Sand? nd
