Well...so much for my New Year Goal of being on time, LOL. But I'm "only" one day behind here...
Jan. 15th was the Dueling Darlings post date. Melina was the hostess for the Dazzlers and Carol (aka Glittah Queen) was the hostess for the Divas. Our theme: Angels.
Here is my card with the GORGEOUS kit sent by Melina:
Image: C.C.Designs "Peace on Earth"
Polka Dot teal paper by Recollections
Gold-feathered acetate sheet: Crafters Companion
Fabric Flower: Wal-Mart
Teal button: MFT (mounted underneath the flower)
I must say, the gold acetate sheet is spectacular! I almost wanted to hoard it LOL, but then I though how lovely it would be on top of the right cardstock.
The image is colored with SU markers, Spectrum Noir markers and the gold and clear sparkles on her dress, halo and wings are done with Spica Markers.
We were asked to share any "Angel Unaware" stories about someone we consider an angel. It seems I have many at this time, which is a true blessing!
My cardmaking buddies in Stamper Addicts and the Dueling Darlings are offering me prayers, positive reinforcement and friendships. Thank you!
In my "other" life I would have to say that my son and neighbors who are helping me deal with snow, ice, and several other challenges that have come my way recently are true angels. They've helped me time and again without me even having to ask.
I honestly believe in angels all around us, and have a few amazing stories of first hand accounts where the only possible explanation is that angels intervened on my behalf. Who ever said that miracles only happened 2,000 years ago in the Bible? Perhaps it's only mankind's arrogance that won't give the credit to angels.
Thank you Melina and Carol for picking such a great theme and sending such a pretty kit to work with. It was angelic!
