Wishing You Tidings of Comfort and Joy

Hi Dreamers!
Welcome to my new followers!!  I am so pleased to have you stopping by.  And, as always, a big hello to my followers and friends!  Today, I thought you might like to see the card we made at Card Ministry.  This is a group that gets together at a local church and make cards for shut-ins.  We made forty of this card.  I decided to omit the ribbon to make them easier to mail. 

This angel is from a retired Stampin' Up set.  I stamped the angel with Rich Razzleberry ink and colored it with Chalk Pencils.

A light distressing was done on the background  by sponging on some Vintage Photo ink.  The inside was stamped with some nice sentiments.

A few fun challenges for my Angel card
For Fun Challenge: Christian Christmas card
Simon Says Stamp: Christmas
Word Art Wednesday: uplifting sentiments
Do you Stack up: anything goes
Aud Sentiments: any sentiment
Stampin' for the weekend: anything goes

I am almost ready for Christmas.  I spent most of the day yesterday making Cake Pops.  I will give the Cake Pops are gifts to my neighbors  staff at my Chiropractor's office, and still have some to take to my brother's on Christmas day.  Still have a few gifts to pick up.  Hopefully today or tomorrow I will be all ready.  I hope you are having a great day and still have time to do a bit of crafting!  Love you.
