Christmas Angels

Good afternoon

Well the sunshine didn't last :o(  It's wet and windy here today which is typical because we have the week off to go out and about.  Hopefully it might dry out later so we can go to Wells-next-the-Sea for a walk along the beach.  We will definitely have to wrap up warm!

This morning Chris and Jamie were playing racing games on the Playstation and Chloe was on her DS so I had some crafting time :o)  I decided to make a Christmas card ~ think the weather was my inspiration!  In fact once I got going I made two cards and matching tags.  I used some LOTV die cuts which are perfect for making quick and easy cards. 

Image ~ LOTV die cuts
Papers ~ Dovecraft
Pearls ~ Stash
Sentiment ~ Craftwork Cards

ABC Christmas ~ Q is for Quick and Easy. 
(I have also done the optional extra which is to
make more than one card using the sketch provided)
Bah! Humbug! ~ Angels and Fairies
Lili of the Valley ~ Four seasons (I chose Winter)
