Boy is it a soggy one out there...it's been raining for the past week. And it has been crazy windy too. We actually had a mini tornado in Springfield the other day that caused some damage to a couple houses and tore out a tree! I know crazy...tornadoes are un-heard of here in Oregon!
I have actually started working on Christmas cards! I know Halloween is just about here...but I got a couple of those out the way already. I always start to feel stressed around this time of year, specially when I made a decision about 4 years ago that I would never buy a store bought card again!! So I've got lots to do!!
Here is my first Christmas card of the year!
One of my light bulbs are burnt out that I use for my light box...so I wasn't able to capture all the sparkle as much as I would have liked. But I did add some sparkle to her wings, ornaments and there is even sparkle on the mounting cardstock, snowflake and stamen.
The image is of course one of Krista's darling digi's from Saturated Canary! She is called "Christmas Angel" and can be found HERE!
More angels and close ups....
I've added one of my digi sentiments on the inside...I thought it fit perfectly with the image!
