Christmas angel

SECOND POST FOR TODAY.
In my last post I wished you all a Happy New Year and shared my New Year's crafting resolutions with you. This post is a Christmas card and is my 3rd one for 2010. Those new Christmas challenges have got me off to a good start. Hopefully I shan't be panicking this December about getting them all made in time. The challenge at the new ABC Christmas Challenge is A is for Angels and use a charm. I used the lovely sketch at Sunday Sketch and Stamp. As the image is a new one which I won on the WOJ Advent calendar and the MS snowflake punch arrived just this week they qualify for the challenges at Fussy and Fancy and Stamp Something who want you to use something new or make a card about something new. I just had to buy this punch after seeing it used on my lovely Christmas card from fellow blogger Christine. How charming is the challenge at La La Land. The last challenge is to use your favourites of 2009 at Crafty Cardmakers. The ones I used on this card are a WOJ stamp, Promarkers, Sakura pen, DCWV Rose tinted Christmas papers and a charm. The Range currently have these papers half price so I bought another pack as I love them so much. That means lots more pink and purple Christmas cards this year.

I was just showing my 6 year old son how Mr. Linky worked and he picked your blog to check out. (Love the angel by the way.) But I really like that "say no to word verification!" I just might have to snag it and put it on my own blog!! Typing all those letters is a bother.
