Scraps of thoughts, photos and art

Spellbinders

I have another angel for you from Michelle Perkett’s new angel collection! I think she’s my favorite, the Peach Angel. She’s so elegant and pretty that she belongs among the clouds! I stamped and embossed the clouds using a Stamps of Life set – just perfect don’t you think?

Don’t forget this week’s challenge at Michelle Perkett’s Challenge blog – Flowers Galore!

Here’s a card that can be used for a couple different occasions. With the church, it could be for a wedding, Christening, engagement, First Communion or Confirmation. I’m sure there are more that I haven’t listed here, but you get the gist.

This card uses a lot of scraps that I had around from the SEI Collection, Jolie Chocolat which was wildly popular for it’s pink and brown tones. The added glitter and foil accents in the patterns made the paper that much more appealing.

It’s a week away from Mother’s Day here in the U.S. so for all of you Moms out there, hopefully you’ll be enjoying a day of relaxation and love from your family.

Almost 8 years have gone by since my Mom’s passing, so I’ve made this card for her. She loved bright colors and the sunshine. This digital stamp is just so pretty for the card! Hope you like it.
