What an Angel at Friday Sketchers 80!!
Happy Friday everyone and I hope that those of you in the US have had a magnificent Thanksgiving Holiday and for those you you outside the US I trust that you have had a most delightful week as well. Thanksgiving always makes me remember so many things to be thankful for and perhaps it is one of my very favorite holidays. So my sincere thanks to each of you for your friendship, your visits, your sweet comments and most of all for just being YOU!!!
And for a bit of exciting news!!!! I am so thrilled and extremely humbled that I have been invited to be on the most talented and exciting Design Team for Magnolia stamps---Just Magnolia Challenge Blog!!! Gosh, I am so excited because I have received so much of my inspiration on my Magnolia journey from these fellow design team members!!! I will make my first posting tomorrow and will be offering a bit of MAGNOLIA Sweet Stuff so you can help me celebrate this monumental invitation!!
This week at Friday Sketchers for Week 80 we are being hosted by the splendidly talented Tanja from Germany who has given us a very challenging sketch. I certainly hope you will jump over and have a look at the marvelous sample cards by the DT members and will then create your own card based upon this fun sketch. We would love for you to participate with us this week because some lucky person will win a very nice prize. Just be sure to link us to your posting with MrLinky and remember to link back to Friday Sketchers in your posting in order to be eligible for the prize!!!
For my card, I have used Bazzill for the base, gold metallic and Coredinations for all matting and the DP is some that I have really fallen in love with--Webster's Pages Petite Papers/Holiday Collection Combo Pack. I have used a new Hanglar angel image (thank you so much, Christina) which is just the sweetest thing!! Three of the images were colored and all of them cut out so that I could give her alot of dimension. I used a bit of Spica on her hairpiece, Smooch and Shimmerz on the ornament she is holding, and Shimmerz on her wings. After machine stitching with gold metallic thread, I added burgundy organza ribbon, a few glitter stars, a burgundy gardenia from Irene's Garden, and an angel charm tied with gold cording....finishing with gold beads in the corners. I hope you like her!!!!
AND now it is a real pleasure to announce the winner of my Belles 'n Whistles Sweet Stuff. My sincere thanks to each of you who dropped by during the blog hop and left a comment for me. CONGRATULATIONS to
