SPOONFUL OF SUGAR CHALLENGE - Christmas is coming and Christmas/Birthday card a week challenge

Well its raining here at the moment, no surprise there. I thought the nice weather couldn't last much longer. However, we should be grateful for the wonderful weekend weather, wasn't it great? the calm before the storm no doubt! I hope you all had a nice enjoyable weekend. I seemed to be busy with little time for crafting. We went to the circus Saturday and on Sunday I sent to see a psychic, which I found very helpful.

So finally today i got round to doing some crafting. This is my entry into this weeks Spoonful of Sugar weekly challenge - Christmas is coming. To be totally honest im not sure what image this is, it was sent by my wonderful friend Jill. The papers were free in one of this months magazines. The snowflakes are a punch and the greeting came with the paper set.
I used stickles for the angels wings and sakura glaze pen for the halo. I just adore this little angel.

I am also using the card for one of my christmas cards for Karins weekly make a birthday/christmas card a week challenge. Below is my second card for the challenge. Same papers as before and the snowflake came with the papers too.

I also made this birthday card for Karins challenge. I love the Whiff of Joy stamps, one of my favourite brand of stamps just now. The papers are K & Co boxer and i have used pro markers to colour in the image.

The wings are coloured with stickles. Ribbon trim is from Anitas and lace from a haberdashery shop.

Well thats me done for today, I don't think ill have much time for crafting this evening as its my eldest sons 19th birthday and we are all off out for a meal to celebrate. Hope you all have an enjoyable evening, big hugs Linda x
