Whimsy Stamp digi

A big 'Hi!' to my newest follower, Lorraine - thanks for the lovely comment you left me and hope you like my work and take inspiration!

Well, we've had a wonderful long weekend away, in Yorkshire, visitng family.  It's my first time on the east side of the Pennines and I have to say, it was very nice and even the weather was kind to us!  We visited York Dungeons, (bit scary!) the Yorvik Centre, wandered around the city, Helmsley Castle and a trip on the steam train from Pickering up to Goathland, where they filmed Heartbeat and was the setting of Hogmeade's Station, in the first Harry Potter!  It's always nice to get home, though after a weekend in a caravan, with only the bare essentials, coming home to a house crammed to the gunnels is a bit of a nightmare!  (I need a sort out, or a skip!)

Anyhow, enough waffle, here's a card I made using one of the Whimsy Stamps images that I won last week...
...this is one of Crissy's digistamps, called Little Christmas Angel - ain't she a sweetie?!  I used the church vine snow backing paper from the 12 Cards of Christmas CD and some grey glitter card for the card base layers.  I printed out 4 of the little angels, then coloured with my Promarkers and decoupaged up the layers.  I used Frosted Ice Stickles on her wings and Diamond Stickles on her dress and hair - she is one sparkly angel!!
...I made the little pine cones, using my smallest flower punch and created the spray using a Crafts-Too holly punch and Martha Stewart branch punch...
...I added a bit more Stickles for luck and a lovely wired Organza bow, coloured with Pastel Pink Promarker to tie in the colour scheme.  I finished off with another of the Christmas sentiments from the church design set, which I'd printed onto Safmat, et fini!!  Hope you like and thanks for hopping by!  Lisa
