Hi....For this week I made a beautiful project with the Ava Heart digi
from our sponsor Bugaboo Stamps. Colored with Spectrum Noir. 

Hello everyone!!! For this new challenge I want to share this Double Shutter card from the Silhouette Store. The digi image I used is Karen Middleton's The Gift Angel from Sweet Pea Stamps  and I worked with Spectrum Noir alcohol markers.

"Words of an Angel,.A Mothers Love" provided by Bugaboo Stamps, was just perfect for a Mother`s Day gift bag. 

Happy Mother`s Day for all those moms that celebrating today!!!!

Hi! To this week I made a Easel Card. I love the Christmas and the angels are wonderful. I used Angel of Christmas Stars
of our sponsor Sweet Pea Stamps.

 First of all can I wish all of you who are celebrating today - Happy Mother's Day! We had the UK one in March of course.
For my first card I chose this really pretty Sweet Pea angel called Angelic by Rachel Anderson, I thought I would use pale colours (markers and cardstock) to keep it delicate and sympathy sprang to mind, and I used a freebie Sweet Pea sentiment to go with it. She has large ears, hope nobody is offended by that if they get the card! I could have used her for a birthday too.  She could even be done in dark colours and become a goth (I might have to try that now)!

For my second example I chose Bugaboo's Christmas Words - Angel, and turned it into a girly birthday card! Lots of people think their little ones are "angels". 
With similar colours to my first card but darker, and with added Stickles and star beads, and die cut words. The ribbon on both cards is from Crafty Ribbons.

To see who won the last challenge see the previous post below this one.
