TCM:: November Blog Hop


"May your heart be lifted in praise this Christmas
for the wonderful gift of Jesus and the joy He brings to our lives.
Have a wonderful Christmas and a Blessed New Year..."

The Craft's meow

The Craft's Meow Team has an amazing line up of projects showcasing the Christmas/Winter Stamp Sets! If you are following along on the hop, you should have arrived from Jinny's Blog! The complete line-up and additional details can be found on The Craft's Meow Blog, though.

I chose to feature Christmas Blessings today.

I stamped the angel image with a pale blue ink and then covered her in some shimmery petina glaze that I painted on. I then sprayed some copper mist over the entire image, then die cut it out and further distressed the panel with some markers and ink. I followed the sketch over at Artful Delight to complete the card, complete with some rhinestones and sequins, patterned paper and May Arts Antique Gold Burlap String (SM32).


Did you know that The Craft's Meow is having an awesome sale on their Fall Stamp Sets? So many of them can be used any time of the year. Check out the blog for more details! They are also having a contest to win a $15 Gift Certificate to spend in the The Craft' Meow store by leaving a comment on the store blog post by 8:00 pm Pacific on November 6th. 
Your next stop on the hop is Larissa!
