Shirley Goodness and Mercy
Ever read Debbie Macomber's book Shirley Goodness and Mercy? Such a good book and these three little angels remind me of them. Let's see, I started with Papertrey Ink cardstock for the base and over that I added some Creative Imaginations Christmas paper. It is double sided so the other side is the strip and bow down the side. The bow is a die cut from Papertrey Ink, as is the button. Well, I mean the real button is from Papertrey Ink, not that it is a die cut. The bow is raised up on Pop Dots. The angels are from Lili of the Valley stamps and colored with Copics. I paper pieced their dresses with scraps and used a Nestie to cut it out. I sponged around the outside with Hero Arts shadow ink in the color Stone. I really like how it turned out. I hope you do too.
Our temperatures are very warm. The kids sure didn't need coats for Halloween tonight. It is almost 9:00 p.m. and still in the 60's. It is supposed to be warm again tomorrow and then only in the 40's with rain for Wed. Yuck. I know winter is coming but sure don't want it to. If I had my way, we would fast forward to spring. Maybe the bears have the right idea. Hibernation is not such a bad thing!
Until next time...
Happy trails to you
