A is for Angel

I was not ready for the first ABC Christmas Challenge.  We do not have a scrap booking shop or a craft shop in our little town so I tried to make do with what I had.  I used a stamp that I had not used in years and colored with watercolor pencils.  Did find the Debbie Mum button at the variety store in town so that covered the angel theme. Next I made a charm out of shrink plastic that I cut with a spellbinder die and added some beads to cover the charm or bead rules for this challenge.  Added a little glitter around the charm/tag but it is hard to see in the photo. Hopefully I will be more prepared for the next letter in the challenge.  Because I would really like to keep up with this challenge and have my cards ready before next Christmas season. Here is what I have to link up to the challenge:

What a sweet card, I used to go to a Stampin up class once a month and learned to make really cool cards but our "teacher" doesn't do it any more.

Thanks for the sweet comment, Brenda. Sometimes I think God gives us trials so we put our focus back on Him. I don't know how people get through each day without Him. I know I couldn't.
Things are definitely getting better-that's what prayer does!!
Sorry to hear about your hubby. Have I missed something? I haven't been too attentive lately, sorry.
Have a great week!

Totally neat! I have no idea how you guys come up with these cool paper art things. I guess that's probably not the technical term but still...just great!
