An apology!

Hi everyone. I hope you're having a good week so far.
I have an apology to make for last week's post. I said it was a Halloween theme over at Crafting by Designs but I got totally mixed up because it's this week. This is what happens when you're not feeling very well and post something when up to my eyes in pain killers :D. So if you've got your Halloween cards made you can enter up to three of your creations in the challenge. I'll tell you about the prize a little later.
So this is the card I should have shared with you for the Add a Sentiment challenge last week. It's using a really sweet image from QKR Stampede called Smiling Angel. She can be used for anytime of year but I made her into a Christmas card. I hope you like it.

    Don't warry for your mistake, when we feel badly we all make any type of mix-up!! (You can't image how many stupid things I do in these situations) :D In Italy we says "Sono già alla frutta"(I'm already at the end of the meal... so I couldn't take anymore, I can't do anything!)
    Your card is supersweet and the cute angel remember me the cloth dolls I had in my very young age :) Love the scenery you have created, with this adorable little house full of heart and the sparkling trees! The nordic ribbon on the bottom is matches very well all the elements, and the gingle bell accompanies perfectly the "feet" of the angel!

    Re the eBosser - mine just stopped cutting... I cut a die, tried to cut the same thing again and it wouldn't pull the plates through, just wouldn't work after that! LOVE the Gemini so far, it's fab :o) Hugs, Lisa x

  9. Hi Debra, what a stunning Christmas card. Your Angel image is adorable and the snowy scene you have created is fabulous. I love the Gingerbread house and your ribbons and bell are great embellishments. Hope you feel better soon.

    Also the Pearl Mica Spray I use is made by diluting some of Viva Decor's 'Platinum' Inka Gold with water. Hope this helps. Sally.x.
