Little Angel floats over to join Friday Sketchers

Hello my friends,
Good news for me and my computer problems,
I have finally come to terms with the fact that I MUST buy a new system. How's that good news? Well, me getting past the sticker shock and onto the window-shopping phase. Progress, slowly but surely. Anyway, these late-night posts often include the oddest of topics so I will stop before I start and get down to the brass tax of things, a card!!

I've used the sketch at Friday Sketchers to create this card with a fabulously cute Stamping Bazaar image, this one is called Little Angel and you can find it HERE. He was coloured in distress inks, a little bit of atyou spica was added to the cloud and wings and a bit of 3D lacquer to his eyes. You know, I keep saying HE, HIM, but this image could very easily be a girl, just draw on some itty bitty eyelashes et viola! Papers are Graphic 45 (stripes) and K & Co. (floral), charms are Jolee's, sentiment is computer generated, the doily is Wilton and the ribbon and lace is from my stash. Everything was distressed in Vintage Photo and scuffed up with scissors.

I figured I'd make something without an animal on it,
and without a big pile of paper flowers,
dont worry, everything is okay, it's okay!!
Welllll, I better go to bed,
where visions of sugarplum stamps dance in my head...
Have a wonderful weekend,
I hope to be visiting everyone soon!!

Hugs, Stephanne
