Angel Dottie

This is for Inspirational card sketches 74:

The base card is sapphire stardream. The added gold cards are pieces left over from last year. The digi image is 'angel Dottie', a charmed download from the bumper Christmas collection.

I took the photo on an angle to try and show the sparkly finish of the base card and the foiling of the gold ones. The sentiment says Happy Christmas.


This is another 'angel' card for BF forum's 25th club for this month.

It's also for:

Santa Claus George

This card uses the sketch for Digital Tuesday 67:

The background paper and the strip down the side are Dovecraft that I bought a couple of years ago, hence the entry for Practical scrappers 'using your stash older than one year'. Santa Claus George is a Charmed download, which is backed on to a piece of BG wassail. The stars are gold irl.

Angelic bear

This is for sketch 40 on Cards and things:

The background paper is Forever Friends Christmas Glow, so is the strip across the middle which has been embossed with Cuttlebug swiss dots. The spiky circle was cut with a nestie using a piece of BG sugar rush. The angelic bear is a FF 3D element.

There seem to be more and more 'Christmas in July' challenges atm - I'm loving them because I need to make so many Christmas cards that it's enthusing me to get more done - at the last count I had made 106. This is now my 8th card for this month's 25th club on BF forum (only two more 'angel' cards to make).
