Totally gorjuss dt

Our challenge this week on Totally gorjuss is Christmas in August, getting a head start on the Christmas rush, sponsored by Cupids clear stamps, i wish i wasnt on the dt for this one as then i may have the chance to win these for myself, been to check them out and there are some really nice stamps there that i could give a very good home to.

For my Christmas card, i am using " Long haired Angel with puppy available HERE. I have colored my image using my normal format of copics, i used one of the EK success border punches for one of my layers, added loads of roses and buds, a couple of bead pins that i made and i also made a flourish out of the flat backed pearls, and a large lush ribbon and bow.  I gave the little Angel a good going over with loads of stickles to her wings and also added the stickles to the roses.  The rest of the dt did a fabulous job on their cards this week, please pop over and check them out for a bit of inspiration, seems everybody loves doing Christmas cards.

Have a great weekend crafting
P.S: did ya notice i seem in a better mood?  My DH came home yesterday, YAY!!!
