It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas

Hello everyone - it has been a few days since my last post and I was in my craft room tonight looking over all my Christmas paper and in the process getting quite inspired and excited about the upcoming Christmas season - my favorite cards are Christmas cards so I always love this time of year when it justs feel natural to make them. So here is one of my first ones of the season. I recently purchased a set of Angel Emma by C.C. Designs - I think she is so adorable - I don't know what paper I used as it is in my huge Christmas stash. I stamped a Penny Black musical stamp using a gray slate ink on to gray DP for the lower half of the card. I did some paper piecing for her dress and trumpet. The rest of her I colored using my copics. I added some sparkles to her halo and her wing. I used my SU oval for the base, a sizzix die cut for the swirls around the prima flower. The sentiment came in the same C.C. Design set. To finish off the card I added some small star brads and used some of my SU silver hardware for the flower centre and either side of the sentiment. Thank you so much for stopping by again to visit. I hope your week is going well for you - I am playing lots of catch-up this week - catching up on bookwork at my office and catching up on housework at home - but the weather here the past couple of days has been PERFECT!!!! Finally we are getting our indian summer!!! Bye for now!!

Your stamping friend
