A little Angel!

Good evening, everyone! I hope you're all having a good week. I've been a busy bee with the dreaded housework, it's horrible to do though it helps when something funky comes on the radio and I can dance with the vacuum cleaner! (Though not as well as Freddie Mercury does in the video to 'I want to break free!)

I've also made a Christmas card, using a lovely LotV stamp, Little Ivy she is adorable!


I coloured here with Speccies (list at the end) and used the Blender to give just the faintest pink shadows on her surplice. Her wings were shaded with grey then slathered with Glamour Dust. The gold metal corner came from Whiff of Joy a couple of years ago; and the green-and-gold ribbon is from Pinflair in Hertford. So is the gold paper used to mat both the image and the LotV sentiment. Gems are from stash.

The gorgeous papers are 'Silent Night' by Papermania, the spotted paper is actually shiny gold dots on cream paper.

I also did the inside (it's a great way of cutting back on the creation of Snippets lol!):



Challenges:

Sketch Saturday supplied the sketch, which is fab, as usual!

CHNC where Hazel wants 'Ribbons' does the inside one count as well as the outside one, Hazel? Also, there are ribbons on the image :)

Crafty Hazelnut's Christmas Challenge Extra which every month is 'Anything Goes' (as long as it's Christmas)

I'm watching the football and 'my' team, Spurs, is winning! I support that team because back when I was working in a library opposite their football ground their Captain used to come in to borrow books. What a lovely man! I can't see it happening these days, I expect the players have to be ferried everywhere by stretch limo!

One day I'll take out a second mortgage and buy a ticket to watch them play live!

Thanks for looking.

COME ON YOU SPURS!
