Day 1 - 30 Days of Christmas at Beccy's Place

     OK, this is my first official post for this year's 30 Days of Christmas at Beccy's Place and, as usual, we start with the first letter of the alphabet as a theme.  I chose to do an Angel, colored with Alcohol markers, added to an A Frame, A2 card.

     Beccy's image is actually supposed to be a Holly Fairy but for this card, I turned her into an Angel, one with jingle bells on her collar and hem.  :-D  This was one of the first Beccy's Christmas images I ever bought and I've used her a lot over the years but never before substituting as an Angel.

Colored with  ProMarkers
Cut with an oval die from QuicKutz
Gold frame cut with QuicKutz die
Glittered papers from Recollections (gold) and DCWV (red)
Stickles Icicle added to her Holly wings
Stickles Frosted Lace added to hat and leggings
Silver paint pen added to the jingle bells on her tunic
Sentiment printed and hand cut

     I'll have one more post a bit later for the second day of the 30 Days of Christmas, featuring the letter "B."  See you then.  Happy Crafting.  NanaConnie

Love the sparkle of this card Connie! And your angel deserves all that sparkle!

Beccy said...

What a great idea to re-imagine this little fairy as a Christmas Angel... I love it! Her sparkly tights and hat are awesome and add such a pretty sparkle to your creation. I also love the touch of gold on her wings. Great choice of sentiment too, it works perfectly with your image. Well done!
