Christmas Crafting (with sketches) #58

Good morning all. I finally had a day out yesterday - went down home, picked Mum up and took her down to see my Aunt in the nursing home. My Aunt looks marvellous for 90 and has already outlived 3 of her younger siblings, she puts it down to staying a spinster!
It's time another challenge over at CCWS and we hope you're playing along with us this year and stocking up on those Christmas cards and projects. It's the Snow Angels turn this week and it was my turn to design the sketch this time. We are being sponsored by The Stamp Fairy who supplied images for the DT to use. 

Image is called Barry Winter 2 and I've coloured with promarkers and used glamour dust for snow. Papers are from My Minds Eye. Corner die is a new Die D Lites from Spellbinders, vine die is from Memory Box, all other dies from Spellbinders. Sentiment and gems from my stash.

 the inspiration of the other DT members whilst you're there.

  9. This is lovely Carol, such an adorable little bear. Your Aunt sounds a bit of a character, a bit late to follow her advice about staying a spinster though!
