Christmas Angels, Mid Month Reminder For CCAYR!

Hello Friends and Visitors, hoping you are all enjoying your weekend.
Thank you all for the comments on my last post, love getting them and love reading them.
Ang from wanted to know what The Kelpies are, and I'm sorry that I didn't tell you this.  Anyway, there are supernatural, mythical creatures which are said to live in Scottish lochs and rivers. Unfortunately, they are nasties, and although they are shape-shifters(try saying that after you've had a few to drink), they usually take the form of horses, who lure weary travellers to mount them, then plunge into the water and take them down into the loch's depth and thereby drowning the unsuspecting person, after that they eat their victims.  So there you are, if walking along a riverbank and you see a beautiful white horse standing there whose mane is dripping wet, just give it a wide berth.

Here is my card for 
Our theme is Christmas Angels and one this one has a lovely image from LOTV, coloured with Prisma Pencils and stamped onto card cut with a Tonic die.
Papermania papers
Gold mirri card embossed with a Papermania folder
Black Core'dination card
Tartan Ribbon from Hobby Craft
Papermaina Gold gems
Star Dust.

Pop into the Challenge Blog page and have a look at what my Teamies have made, there is bound to be some great inspiration.

Thank you for visiting and I hope you will comment,
