Daughters Christmas ...

Just wanted to share with you the card I made for my daughter this Christmas, I couldn't post it earlier as I knew she would view my blog and see it!  On another note being a fairly new blogger my last few posts have been on a schedule so I do hope it is all going to plan and my posts are making sense???  As I type this all my family are at home, cooking a roast dinner and enjoying time together but when this posts both my husband and son will be at work and my daughter will have gone back to school so it will be just me and the dog, where did the Christmas holidays go???
I just loved the release from Sjs Little Musings of a set of 6 angels and I knew that they would be just perfect for my daughter and also I wanted to use something that she hadn't already seen or hadn't been used for someone else, something more personal for her.  She loves all my creations and makes her own for friends and family so she really appreciates the time and effort that goes into each one.  Also makes it harder each time to come up with something so special!!!
Another Anitas square card blank, Summertime Designs backing paper and some pearlised cream cardstock from Payperbox at my local craft shop.  Tim Holtz distress ink for edging and the image was a digi and coloured with Promarkers.  I have decoupaged my little angel in four layers to give her some depth.  Stickles glitter for her wings, the sentiment was computer generated.  Flowers and pin from Wild Orchid Crafts, gems for her halo are Papermania and finally my faithfull branch punch from Martha Stewart.
Take care fellow bloggers, Jane x
