Happy Holidays to You and Yours

Hi Everyone!  We've been busy passing around some lovely germs so I haven't had much time to create cards, but I have a few saved in drafts still.  Today, I thought I would share a holiday card with you using an adorable Wee Stamps image.

I used the cute Angelica image from Wee Stamps.  You can get it digitally here from Wee Stamps or as a rubber stamp from Whimsy Stamps here.  I used a sentiment from Whimsy Stamps' Holiday Mini Postage Stamps set.

I love traditional red and green Christmas colors, but also like to add in a little blue now and then for a less traditional color combo.  I chose some patterned papers from the Life in the Country paper pad from Maja Design.  It's not a Christmas paper pad, but I think the colors and patterns work well still.  I buy my Maja Designs paper pads from the Funkie Junkie Boutique.

I colored the image with copic markers.  (Sorry I didn't write them down this time.)  The image was die cut with using the Double Scalloped Square Doily die and the die used with the sentiment is the Mini Postage Stamp die.

I added some stardust stickles to the angel's wings.  (Sorry the color is a little off in this photo.)  I added lots of flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts.

The crocheted lace is from May Arts and the satin ribbon, button, and snowflake charm were in my stash.  I'm playing along with the Wild Orchid Craft's Ribbon and Lace challenge.  I'm also playing along with The Ribbon Girl challenge which is to use Stripes on our cards.

The weather here has turned off cold and we've been getting a lot of snow and rain showers.  I think our warm weather is gone until spring now.  I don't know if I'm ready for that.  Oh well, more time to spend with the kiddos watching movies, playing games, and just hanging out.

Hope you all have a great weekend!
