As most of you know by now we have received very bad news this last week. The Angel Company is no longer in business. As hard as we all tried, this economy is getting the best of several small businesses and we were no exception. This has been a tough week for many Angels but we will be forever grateful for the blessings we have received, the people that we have met and also the people we have grown to be become being part of an amazing company. More than just a company, more than just a business adventure but a family and community.
Here are a few cards that I did using some images from a set called "Beautiful Lace" that I received from a very special Angel - Angela Kelly - an amazing lady who also designed our last catalog cover card. Thank You Angela - you are truly inspiring....
Pink and Black - one of my favorite color combinations.....It is hard to see the true soft pink of the dress....it washed out pretty bad in the photo. There is a heart pearl by the sentiment and a teeny tiny one on the bow of the dress....
This is actually one of my favorites. The green strip through the center of the card is done with glitter on scor-tape, and the dots on the top half of the card are from glitter on glue dots. I hadn't done this before it is was so easy and fun :) Again kind of a washed out picture but I think you get the general idea....Love this card.
I never really thought I would get into the Victorian kind of cards, but this didn't turn out too bad. Reminds me of an old photo of my Grandmother. It is all done in a very soft peachy pink with brown and gold ribbon. I sponged some Desert Sand Ink over the cuddlebuged background to age it a little and soften it up. And even though you can't see it - I used the paper piercer to go around the lace edges. Looks really cool in person.
I hope you enjoyed my cards for this blog hop- things that remind me of The Angel Company - Simple -Smart -Sophisticated and best of all fun. Thanks for everything Mischelle - you have definitely made a difference in my life....
Ok Done with the mushy stuff now......
