Snow Angel

Woohoo! Made it to Wednesday... actually received some bad news today but i'm trying my hardest to put that in the back... so what better way to relieve some stress for a while?!?! hide in my craft room... managed to get a few challenges in one card... which i'm thankful for... in the beginning i didn't know what to do but in the end, i'm satisfied with the outcome...
Meet Angel Anya... or because of the theme, Snow Angel... give me some credit, it was the first time i've played with fun flock... and boy was it messy... =D the orignal card was plain, even with the beautiful non-traditional color DP by Heidi Grace... i just loved the colors on the DP... so i went a little crazy adding embellies all over... of course, it's snowflakes to match the paper... then i saw my bag of mini pom poms and added a few of those... snowflakes and snowballs... so christmasy.. diamond stickles gg glitters her wings and cotton cnady stickles glitters her bow... also added some diamond stickles onthe big snowflakes...

this card is up for the following challenges:

1. Mystery Monday at CA - Let it snow theme

2. MMSC #26 - Sketch that i changed up just a tad bit

3. ROP Challenge # 24 - A Christmas card

well, hope you can come along and play with 1, 2 or all of these challenges with me... until next time friends... Have a wonderful day! and i'll say this (mainly to myself) When life gives you lemons, make lemonade. =D


  1. Hello Kris - I am glad you were able to get away from all that is happening and play along with the MMSC! I tell my DH that I am saving him big $$$'s as therapy is at least $150 an hour - so crafting is way cheaper!! I don't know that he quite sees it that way! LOL! I love this Anya Angel - she is adorable, and all that shimmer Rocks!! I love your take on the sketch! I hope your week gets better!! Thanks for playing along with the Midnight Madness Sketch Challenge this week and we would love to see you again next week! {{{hugs}}}
