Happy Friday!!


Good morning!! I have some Christmas stamps that I haven't inked up yet so today I will be making some last minute quick cards with as many of them as I can.
This sweet little Stampendous image called Harmony Angel is from Stamper's Dream (thanks Michelle!!). Michelle has the most wonderful store full of goodies and she delivers sooo fast....it's a great place to shop!! The angel was stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black and colored with copics. The wings were covered with Dazzling Diamonds. The wide satin ribbon came off a gift I recieved for my birthday last May...I was saving it for a special card. Looks like today is the day!! The pink ribbon was tied around the wide ribbon to create the pucker and the button was glued on using Crystal Effects. It dries really hard and the button won't budge!! I wish I had added the Crystal Effects to the wings prior to the glitter for a little dimension but didn't think of it till the glitter was dry. The sentiment is from the Clear Dollar Stamps Holly Builder set and the layers were cut out with Nestabilities.
Thanks for dropping by this morning.....I really need to wash some clothes and scrub the kitchen floor but I think I will stamp instead!!! Have a great day!!!

Stamps: Stampendous, Clear Dollar Stamps
Paper: Pretty in Pink, Wild Wasabi, White, K&Co. dp

I haven't been checking in on my favorite blogs for a few days, so now I am catching up. You have been very busy and doing beautiful work! I really like this Harmony Angel. It's been fun using non-traditional colors on the cards and pink has been one of my favorites. This is very cute.
