Angels Watching Over Us

     For those of you in the USA, I hope your Thanksgiving was warm and wonderful and that you counted all your blessings.  We have so much in this country and others have so little.

     Today starts the real Christmas rush but I simply refuse to participate in 'Black Friday.'  I'd rather be crafting than fighting the crowds.  Today at QKR Stampede, we're starting a new challenge and our theme is "Angels," so appropriate for yet another Christmas card.  If you haven't started yet, Christmas is exactly 4 weeks away.  Yikes!


I based my design on the sketch from The Sweetest Thing.


     I used Digi 14809 "Sitting on the Moon" for the image and Digi 10804 "Angels Watching" for the top sentiment.  I colored the image with my ProMarkers, then added glitter to her wings and the moon.  It doesn't show very well in the main photo but here's a closeup that shows how much it actually sparkles.


     I used one of my newer die sets to cut the image and the frame for it.  The background dp with the 'polka dot' stars is from DCWV and the ribbon came from my stash.

     Challenges:

     I hope you'll find time to craft something with an angel and come play with us at QKR Stampede.  Remember, you can use any image but if you use something from QKR Stampede, your card will be entered into a draw just for those who used one of our images and that significantly increases your chances of winning.  :-D  Happy Stamping.  NanaConnie

Cute card and we all do need angels watching over us these day. Love that die also. I would not go near a store today if you paid me to go. I'll stay in and enjoy leftovers and knit or make a card or two. Hope you have a wonderful weekend.
