I am so happy to be back home after a 4 week cycle ride up in the Wimmera/Mallee area of Victoria Australia - a beautiful place if you like flat, dry and farming areas! Mind you anywhere is lovely as long as I am riding my bike. But first I would like to share with you one of the down sides of the cycle touring ... the awful suntan line...
I also have a short sleeve tan line on the arms - I look shocking in a swim suit and people look at me when I am at the local swimming pool!
Anyway glad to be home and in my little craft room.
This morning I am finishing off my christmas card list and I have wanted to use this Angel digital stamp from Paper Pretties. I made this card for one of my sisters' who just loves Angels.
and a close up of the angel which I used kindy glitz on here hemline and wings.
and the inside of the card is nice and simple.
materials - AC mint, Core 'Dinations poinsettia and white cardstock; Cosmo Cricket 'mitten weather' papers; Paper Pretties 'angel' digital stamp; Kaisercraft 'merry christmas' stamp; Color Palette magenta ink; MFT little open scalloped edge die; Crayola pencils; Twinery twine; button; Striped ribbon; brad; Derivan kindy glits 'crystallina'; Ranger white opal liquid pearls.
I have made this card for the following challenges -
Card Patterns sketch #144 - I have rotated the sketch on its' side. The colours are inspired from the challenges from Kaboodle Doodles (use christmas colours), Paper Sundaes (use 2 of the following - red, diecuts, stripes or stitching). The theme is inspired by the challenge over at Party Time Tuesdays (holiday greetings) and I would like to submit it also for Wee Memories (whose theme this week is 'free for all').
Well that is all for now - it is time to sort of the christmas cards to decide who gets what and to see if I have enough!
