An Angel of a Card for Winter Wonderland DT

Good morning bloggers
It is Friday and don't they come around so quickly.  If you are not sure why Friday is so good, it is the beginning of the weekend and even better it is the commencement of the next challenge at

Last week we had some amazing entries and it was great popping over to visit you all to read all your entry posts and look at all those lush holly berries, I think I managed to pop to see all of you

If I have not popped to snoop yet on your WOYWW it is because the desktop computer decided it had finally given up and a new one got ordered, this is as we speak working its way to mega setup mode and I will shortly be able to whizz through my comment catch ups.

I am also as I said on my last post mega excited as today also sees the commencement my Dragon's Lair Guest Designer spot. 

If you would like to pop to see some of the items I have created for them here are the links again

So after all that excitement here is even more as the new challenge at Winter Wonderland is

A Masculine Christmas Card

and this week we are sponsored by a fabulous sponsor

Digi Doodles

This challenge was chosen and is hosted by our very talented Lynsey

Initially I got to a slow start on this one, but eventually just had to use one of my new digi stamps from my winnng's at the Secret Crafter, this image is Angel Boy and he seemed just perfect, such a shame I could not do a purple and silver card and join in with them this week, but I don't think boys do those colours much, do you?

So this is what I created
The base card and trim along with punched edge and scrolls is gold mirror card, and on top of this is the Dovecraft new papers I think (hope I remembered correctly)  The deckled edge rectangle nestie was just perfect for the image and the sentiment is an MSE.  The ribbon just finished it off nicely but now not sure where this one came from sorry.

Here is a close up of the image coloured with my usual copics and for those sparkly wings a clear sakuro glitter pen.
For a first time of colouring him it went OK and I love the wings.

Now you know how us ladies of the WW Design Team love to combo their creations, so here is what I am entering this card into this week

Sunday's With Chrissy - Sparkle and Shine with a digi
Crafts and Me - For a Teenager
Creative Inspirations - Xmas in September
The Lollipop Ladies - Candy Stripes
Sew Many Cards - Digi Stamp and Christmas
the sketch was by Sketch Saturday

I would like to say thank you to those of you who pop by and take the time leave me such lovely comments, I really do enjoy reading them and returning to visit you all.

So I think that all is left for me to say is have a great weekend and enjoy your crafting

Hugs Kate xx
