CCT Christmas Angels

Hello again! it's been a while and although I have been busy with a little crafting I cant show you what I've been making until after Christmas .. .. just in case someone is looking!

I do have a DT card to share with you this week for the Cute Card Thursday challenge, Christmas Angels, or in my case more of a little Christmas fairy!  This is one of Sylvia's Wee stamps digi designs called Holly and she got flipped so is looking t'other way, I didn't know I could do that .. .. and probably wont be able to figure it out again. I have made a pretty card with lots of sparkle although its not always showing up, coloured with Copic markers and inked the raised embossed areas on my die cuts with an aqua chalk ink. Here's the card:

Another of the magazine papers for the background then a selection of little die cut snowflakes and hearts from Marianne Design, and the chicken wire piece too that I've glittered.  Here's the list of Marianne dies I used:
chicken wire DF3404
text banner COL1325
small snowflakes and heart (little hearts are from the middle of the bigger one) CR1256
large snowflake in top right corner LR0125

Thank you for taking the time to stop by and look at my card, I'm sorry I'm not getting a chance to visit much these days.  Izzy is doing well, he has been for the snip last week and whilst under the anaesthetic he had an x-ray of his oesophagus and a camera look at his throat.  All seems normal although we are still getting the regurgitation at times if he eats too fast, the pieces are too big (like when he found an old hide chew in the garden that Piper must have left hidden) or he is stressed by something, and there are lots of things that stress him outside the home.  Thankfully he is happy and settled here in his routine with me.


  1. A gorgeously sweet little card, love the colour and your colouring.

  2. Love your sweet image and colours.your die cuts are wonderful and show off this card fabulously, hugs xx

  3. A gorgeous card Annie, I love Holly (must try flipping her as she looks so different!!) and you have coloured her beautifully. Glad to hear Izzy is doing well xx

  4. Really cute card, and love the idea of just using a "piece" of something (in this case the chicken wire but could be most any little scrap) for emphasis.

    See, Izzy is settling in. And as he grows so will his esophagus which may help his problems as will more distance from his early traumas. They're all individuals just like us. What would we do without them!?

  5. I love that image! And the use of the dies looks lovely. Very inspirational.



  6. Oh wow!! Another one that I could add to "my favourite" catalogue ;) That colours combo is just fabulous!
