Skipping Ahead and Whining

Today is a rainy gloomy day here in Michigan, I haven't posted anything over the past few days because I've been busy finishing up my fifteen swaps for the Great Girls swap and working on birthday cards for this month, that and this week was totally crazy with my family life. I really felt like I should have slapped on some checked strips down the side of my mini van and wore a cabby's hat. In this week alone I drove to the dentist, the doctors, two dance classes, the orthodontist, the grocery store, the hair salon, the post office and a hundred other places in between, Aaaa the life of a busy mother with three kids! After finishing up my swaps and a few b-day cards I wanted to work on something fun and this last week I found a pretty Stampendous stamp set with angels and I couldn't wait to play with it, so this is what I made. I'll be back to posting fall and Halloween cards but for today its Christmas!

Its difficult to see from the picture but the angel was stamped three times with her body and the earth cut out separately and pop dotted, that and three red gems were added to her dress along with dazzling diamonds for her wings.

Have a great weekend and don't forget about the blog candy below!

Hi Lynn your card is fabulous! I love all of your work! :) It was a rainy day here in good old Wisconsin too! Ick! But it was a good day for crafting! Too bad I did that all day instead of homework! Oh well good thing there is always tomorrow for homework! Enjoy the rest of your weekend!
