Peace on Earth Charlotte....and some Christmas Candy!!


I have some super duper Whiff of Joy blog candy for you today, but first the card!!

Since I had my Wassail dp out from yesterday's Hanglar card, I decided to make a card using Angel Charlotte! I also found an awesome sketch to use, over on Our Creative Corner that was perfect for this image.

The card base is Always Artichoke and the rest is the Wassail dp by Basic Grey. I stamped Charlotte on Wausau bright white cardstock using Memento Tuxedo Black ink and coloured her in with my Copic markers. I used E53, E51 and E50 colours on her angelic wings and I think they look just right, don't you? I cut her out and pop dotted her on the Nesties layer. I added the sentiment by Papertrey on a strip and gave it a ribbon end, then attached some sparkly Prima poinsettias with a BG brad. The buttons are also from the Wassail line. I finished the card off by adding sparkle to Charlottes wings and star necklace, using my Sakura Stardust gel pen!



Now for the candy!!! I have a wonderful Whiff of Joy Christmas Tree to give away to one lucky winner!! Just leave me a comment here in this post and tell me what was your favourite Christmas gift that you ever received....or gave to someone else!! Leave your comment by Sunday, December 14th at midnight EST and I will post a winner on Monday morning!

I'm the first poster? Woohoo! Love the card Kimmie--it's gorgeous and thanks for the chance to win.

As for my favorite christmas gift--well, I can't really pick anything. For me, it's not about the gifts, it's about the giving. I love giving, and it's watching the look on people's faces when they open their gift that is the biggest gift for me.
Sappy, I know--but that's how it is for me.

I gave my DH a painting of the boys that I love. It is the greatest gift I both gave and received.
Happy Holidays

I love this Charlotte card! So pretty and festive.

My favorite thing that I ever got for Christmas was a new little nephew born 3 days prior. He sparkles my everyday!

Susan said...

I love the happy look on the angel's face anfd the beautiful color of her dress.
My favorite Christmas gift was a pair of star shaped earrings with a tiny diamond chip in them from my Mom and Dad. I got them when I had my ears pierced at age 13 and still have them-I'm 58 now! Whenever I look at them, I remember just how wonderful my parents were and how we all loved each other. It was just the 3 of us and we were always together.

The card is lovely! I love that angel!
My fav Christmas gift ever was my son, born not on Christmas but on the 15th~

Pamela said...

One of the best gifts that my family went together to give was a Bible for my dad. My dad and mom had always gone to church and worshiped until my mom died of cancer. My dad became bitter and quit going to church. I guess too many memories and the ol' devil just hardened his hard. Well, he did start going back to church and one year all of us pitched in together and got him a new Bible to start his new life with Christ.

My dad recently died. My brother (who is not a christian) decided he wanted the Bible. At first I was a bit upset but the Lord spoke to me and said that one day my brother may pick up that Bible and read it. I have several Bibles in my house that I can pick to read from. I also have God's Word hidden in my heart.

Hopefully, this gift that we gave my dad will also go on to my brother and one day he will accept Christ into his heart.

LOVE the card. Beautiful! My favorite gift was a beautiful pink sapphire and diamond necklace from my hubby last year. (Diamond is my oldest sons birthstone, and sapphire was supposed to be our youngest sons!) It was put in a box full of money. :) $1s of course!

Erin said...

The best gift I have ever recieved was the kitten of my cat who had died. My mom played it off like she got rid of it and she had been keeping it to give to us for christmas..It was awesome..

My favorite Christmas Gift was from my grandparents about 35 years ago. They bought me a Thumblina Doll, which I really wanted. I still have her and her pull string still works. Every time I hold my Thumblina doll I feel like that little 8 year old girl again that got her Christmas Wish and the love that my grandparents had for me. As I look back it was as much their favorite gift as it was mine when I recall the smiles on their face when they seen mine light up.

Daniela/Neliz said...

Tami said...

This card is GORGEOUS!!! I don't know about my fave Christmas gift BUT I will say that I LOVE giving and I love doing it in a creative way. So much fun! This year I'm giving my sister a skyline chili gift card in a skyline can- can't wait to see her face. And of course, any Christmas I can spend with my nephew is a gift for me.

This was fun to think about. My favorite present ever has been my Basset Hound Cassidy. We got her as a puppy at Christmas 2005. I'd been wanting one for more than 25 years. And she was worth the wait.

Jacilynn said...

My favorite gift was a kitchen aid mixer. I love to cook & bake! and I normally am not surprised, but my sweet hubby slipped this one by me.

Jackie said...

My favorite gift was something I got for everyone in my family and my boyfriends family. We ordered tickets to see the Christmas Spectacular and we didn't only see the show but we also had dinner together, saw the big tree in NYC and spent the whole day together. It was wonderful!

pescbrico said...

What a really lovely card. I really love your coloring. Thanks for the chance to win !:)

Cathy said...

Gorgeous card - love your colouring, those wings look fab.
Great candy and thanks for a chance to win it.
My favourite Christmas gift ... hmmm, I have had so many lucky gifts, but I would have to say either my hubby, we got married 4 days before Christmas, or my older daughter, born 18 days before Christmas.
Hugs

TaraG said...

Hey Kim! Really beautiful card with this Angel charlotte image! I love how you did the wings...they do look perfect!!! Thanks for the colouring tip there!

Well, I was going through some pictures the other day and came across some old pics of me, when I was little. I was so thrilled to find a few pics of the best gift I ever received, my Barbie Star Traveller Motor Home. I loved that Motor Home and play with endlessly with My Donnie and Marie and Charlie’s Angels Barbies, smile!!! Oh such fond Memories!!!!! I think I might make a mini-album with these pics that I found!
Hugs, t

Ruth said...

Lovely card!

I think my favourite christmas gift was my sewing machine. My mom and dad bought it to me. I had no idea, and was REALLY surprised when I got it! I LOVE it, just wish I had my own sewing room, so I could use it more! (But I'm not complaing, I have my own room for stamping! :P )

Pamela, your comment brought a little tear to my eye. I just lost my dad too, and have a brother who unfortunately isn't a christian. Maybe he's the one who should get my dads Bible.

Gorgeous card! My favorit Christmas gift, was birth of my baby! Hugs, Moni

The Crazy Life of a Navy Wife said...

I love this card! The stamp is awesome! She sticks right out!

My favorite Christmas gift was the Barbie Dream House that "Santa" brought me when I was 6. It was incredible. My brothers were jealous that I got such a large gift and I was on top of the world!!

wendies scrappings said...

In our family we never give presents. That is something I do not associate with christmas.

But the best gift ever is that Jesus was born on christmas day.

Krista said...

My best christmas gift ever came last year right before christmas, when my daughter was born. She was born 4 weeks early, so a little unexpected. Anyway thanks for the chance to win a stamp.

Sandy said...

K said...

Rachel Forrester said...

The card is just so cute!
The best gift I ever gave - would be a play house to our kids that we had lifted in Christmas eve after they were asleep - I think we had more fun than they did!

Thanks so much for the chance

Dawn Easton said...

So pretty Kimmie! I love your layout and adorable stamp!!

Kim said...

Kimmie your card is so pretty! I love that angel stamp! :) My favorite christmas gift....that's a hard one....probably would have to be the very first christmas present I got from my hubby when we started dating...it was a silver chain Tiffany's bracelet with the heart charm. I still treasure that piece of jewelry!
Hugs~ Kim
PS - I have some christmas blog candy on my blog is you would like to stop by and take a peek!

My favourite gift has to be the handmade dollhouse my dad made for my sister and I. It was beautiful with real shingles on the roof and tiles on the floor.

Aloha Kimmie.

What a cute pink blog you have !!! I was visiting some crafting blogs and found your yours while visiting Joy's Blog. You ladies are so talented and creative.. your card is beautiful something my DD would love.I would love a chance to enter your give away.

The best thing I got for Christmas was a beautiful box filled with almost a hundred homemade get well cards from my crafting sisters while undergoing treatments. The creativeness, time, words, and prayers, left me in tears and with a heart filled with unspeakable Joy. Handmade gifts just cannot compare to any other kind.

LINANNA DESIGNS said...

Wow Kimmie, another gorgeous card hun. I adore this charlotte image and you have coloured her beautifully as always. The papers are stunning too hun. Lovely work, you never disappoint. Hugs Linda x

JessicaK said...

best christmas gift, wow, so hard to pick. I think my favorite was a couple of Christmases ago, well, I think 5 years ago. My brother and I both went home for Christmas. It was the first time in almost as long that the whole family was together for the holidays, and it was great!

Julie (Joypup on SCS) said...

I love taking people to mass on Christmas, even though i am Jewish -- I know that when someone needs a ride, it makes a difference.

I also like to volunteer to do their job on that day, if they are required to work.

My favorite gift received is going to the Mothers of Preschoolers Holiday tea -- they make it so special!

Thanks for the chance to win!

Rosette said...

Thanks for this chance Kimmie :) Well, I'm not a difficult pleaser, so even a pack of DP makes me happy :) Stash is always the perfect gift for any Christmas for me!! :)

Karen said...

Hi Kimmie. I came over from WoJ to see what you'd used to colour the image with: I love the depth of the red dress and the colour of the wings: I have the same stamp but no copics unfortunately :(
Of course I would love a tree to go with the angel!
I think the best Christmas present I ever had was the bright orange shirt my mom once bought me - I thought she'd gone mad but it looked fantastic on and changed my whole view on bright colours.

-Agnes- said...

Would love to win... my favourite Christmas gift is my Varier Move stool which I had wanted for years... I find it so comfortable!

Diane said...

Such a lovely card Kimmie! That paper is soooo gorgeous!

My favorite Christmas gift is to give! Even if it's just a little something baked for an elderly or a toy for a needy child. As long as I know I made someome happy,I'm happy!
Love that tree stamp btw! Good Luck to the winner!

stargazeramy said...

Hi Kimmie!! I love your work!! Your cards are great!!
One of my fav. gifts was from when I was little, probably around 8 or so, I asked Santa for a barbie house...My parents didnt have much money, but they got me that house! Our toy room was in the basement and a few years later it flooded so we had to throw it out:(But I found the same house 3 years ago at value village still in the box for 8$ !! almost an antique by now !

Katie @ Paper Makeup said...

love the card! Its simply stunning!

My favorite gift? Would probably be when i finally got a cell phone! My dad wrapped it and had it under the tree and called it so the box would ring. How funny that is now because it was such a novelty then to have a cell phone! I was a freshman in college. Now most 13 year olds have their own cell phones!

Julee (Vervegirl) said...

Gorgeous card, Kimmie! She's adorable.

My favorite Christmas gift ever was a little stationery pad I received from my father when I was 11. It had adorable little bears on it, and he wrote a long letter to me on the very first page and I've treasured it always. Last year - 22 Christmases later, my father gave me another letter for Christmas. I have it by my nightstand and constantly re-read it. We've never been close, and he doesn't talk much, so those two letters are more precious than anything he could have ever bought me.

Deborah said...

Ahhh...your Charlotte angel is adorable! There have been so many great gifts over the years! It's funny as we age how our lists change too!Ya know from dirt bikes to diamonds! He he! I woke up one Chrsitmas morning to a bright red brand spanking new dirt bike (as close to the tree as possible)! I was so surprised! Those were fun days with DH! Merry stampin' Deb

Ladypou said...

Love the card :) and may i say.. all your work of art. ;) Please continue to give us a chance to see them ;) The greatest gifts of all that i have received are the ones made from the hands of my sons. One is 20 years old and the other is 4.. and i still remember the first gift my oldest would bring back from school for xmas or other occasions. These are the most presious things ever :) and i love to give.. ( maybe a little too much) hehehehe

Anna said...

This is such a wonderful card !!

My favorite Christmas gifts every year are the ones that my boys have made themselves in school, brought home, hidden in their closet and then put under the tree to give to us on Christmas. They always make something nice and put all their love into it. These are the best and most cherished presents.

andrea murdock said...

oooo pick me pick me, fingers crossed! I am free the whole week after Christmas with no kids so let me know if you have a day off or evening for a stamp play day! Love this card as I love all of yours!

Jilli said...

My favourite Christmas gift is the one my DH got me this year ... although I've had it since the summer lol ... my fab laptop! I think he got fed up with all the time I was spending on the PC and not being able to get on there himself. He loaded all my cardmaking stuff on to it for me and all my favourite software. Jillix

Diane said...

Hi Kimmie
Another gorgeous card from you, the colouring is perfect for the image.
My favourite Christmas gift was my daughter Kate, due on Christmas Day 26 years ago and she arrived a tad late on the 28th December.

Leonie said...

I don't have a favourite christmas gift because we don't give gifts with christmas. On 5th December we celebrate Sinterklaas, we give eachother gifts and it's a great party. On christmas day it's about being together and have a good time.

ribenaruby said...

Great candy and thanks for offering this gorgeous stamp to some lucky winner. Card is adorable and my fave gift for christmas would be my little one making santa out of bits of wool and beads. It hangs on our tree every christmas.

Maria said...

Great card Kimmie! Thanks for the chance to win. Happy Holidays, Maria

Maria said...

Forgot to post that my favorite gift would be a Big Shot. Hugs, Maria

Tanc said...

Last year Christmas I got a special gift (well, for me it was a gift). Everybody in the family, husband, older son, mother-in-law, father-in-law and greatgrand mother, got sick of rota virus (very nasty and contageous virus, dengerous for small children). Only me and my other son did not get sick. At that time the litlle one was only 2 months old.

JenniferCR said...

Super cute card! Let's see my favorite gift that I ever gave to someone was to my hubby last year. I surprised him by redoing his high school scrapbook of old football pictures, articles etc. that his mom and he had collected. He thought the scrapbook had been lost during one of our moves but secretly I had tucked it away knowing I would surprise him with it! He loved it!

Holly said...

My best present was the year my parents gave me a stereo for christmas. I love the whiff of joy stamps they are so awesome. Thank you for this chance.

Debbie said...

Aww Kimmie. I just missed the candy deadline, but I do love your blog, and am now a follower. Your cards are amazing I love them. My favourite Christmas gifts are always the ones made by my children, whether they are cards or calendars. I just love them.

Hugs Debbie xx
