Hark the Heral Angels Sing!

Hello Folks and it's another lovely day here and I'm just wishing I was staying at home instead of having to go off to work in a wee while, so many more interesting things I could be doing.

Anyway, I've been catching up with peoples blogs and just loving all the wonderful creations that I'm seeing, so many tanented people out there.

Thanks to all you have left comments on my blog xx

I have decided to enter a challenge, never done one before, didn't think my cards came up to the level of creativity and artistry that would be needed, but I say this one on LOTV ideas to inspire Fairy Challenge, and thought I could do that.  Well I've done it and here it is

I really must learn how to photograph.
The challenge was to make christmas card for a boy so I already had LOTV diecut toppers so chose this lovely little image of the Angel Gabriel giving the Good News.  I''ve used the lovely Christmas papers from LOTV and copied a piece of Herr Mendalssohn's very appropriate music to add to the background(hope I don't get done for copyright), Xcut star die Snowflake punch and gold glitter card and gems from Papermania.

All in all I am really pleased with it and no matter if it dosen't make the grade, I enjoyed doing it and I hope you like it.

I am stunned by how near Christmas actually is and although I've got quite a few cards made I'm not really anywhere near finished.  I need to think yo some very simple ones to make quickly.

Well, I had better go now and get ready for the off, face to put on and all that sort of thing, everyone have a good day whatever you do

Hi Kate, what a beautiful card, I just love the topper and the background, just it all. Good luck with the challenge, it will take a lot to beat your entry. Don't work too hard.

Take care.
