Raggedy Angel DT card

Hi, and welcome!

I don't usually have a DT make on a Saturday, but there's always a first time for everything...haaa!
With an eye to growin' that stash of needed Christmas cards, this creation is destined for one of those overseas addresses....could it be you?

Before we get to the card, I'd like to give you a heads-up about a new challenge blog........it's called cardcrafterscircle.blogspot.com and is run by the wonderful Pauline Guttrey.......there's a DT call going out, too!

The image is called Raggedy Angel and she's available in the store........


Don't usually "do"  Christmas cards that aren't in traditional  colours, but I thought this ickle lady needed to have pink, sparkly wings....so she's been attacked with the ol' Mod Podge.......

The papers are from Hot Off the Press....still gots bits of that paper pad left, but am workin' on using it all...haa!

I cut the large snowflake from my Shapeability die, and added some sparkly flossy stuff, and a purple Card Candi........

More ickle snowflakes, and a few gems...........

The sentiment was a freebie stamp (with a magazine), and I just added a spot of sparkle, and cut out with deckled scissors.....I've got a large carousel of these shaped-edge scissors, but hardly use 'em....shame......

This is a piece of that lovely flocked netting that I sometimes use for my rolled roses....love it!
The pretty pink pearlescent doily-thingy was cut with a new Marianne's die....love it,  too!

Off now to clean bedrooms....who makes all this mess?.......and then I just might have some time left to creep into my craft room....but don't tell  anyone....they might decide to visit.....haaaa!

Hugs,
Anne-Marie x

  8. Thanks for stopping by my blog and for the sweet, endearing comment. Yes, I am wanting to hit the "freeze" button and hold him at 12. My girls are 25 & 19. The time passes much too quickly, but thankfully, the memories last forever. I know that I won't be the most important woman in Andrew's life forever, and I'm OK with that. I pray for his future wife, and pray that she will be a blessing to him. But for now, I rather like being the only woman in his life. He thinks I'm wonderful, so for nmow....I will take it. LOL Thanks again for being a blessing to me today. I appreciate it. By the way, I love this raggedy ann. Best of luck with your challenges.

    P.S. One of the Design Teams I'm on (Penny's) is being sponsored by Stretch-n-Bubbles in an upcoming challenges. We recently got our images for this (Tie One On) challenge, and I'm really excited about the image I'm using. I will try to remember to stop by and remind you to take a pee (or you can look for it at Penny's).
    Blessings!

  9. LOL - I'm SO sorry. I meant "take a peek". That's TOO funny. Sorry! I made a few mistakes. i guess that's what I get for typing too fast. Good for a good laugh anyway.
