Lili Of The Valley Christmas Angel and what a morning !

Well great start to the morning  per usual. I got the white wash out of the washing machine and Sam has left a black biro clipped to the pocket of his white work shirt, not a lot of the wash has escaped the ink....this is a boy and I say boy not man (even though he is nearly 19) that wants to move out and get a house with his friends. Remember the "young ones " on tv in the 80's , I my very spoilt and demanding poodles ,are racing up and down because they want their walkies.....

On to my card.What a vintage cutie this lili of the valley angel stamp is. I've coloured with promarkers ,added distress ink, some stamped snow flakes from docraft home for Christmas and added glamour dust and tiny blue gems.
The paper , love it, is a free gift pad with Quick Cards mag by raspberry road.The ribbon is from the ribbon box and the lace my local craft shop, as is the wooden button and twine.

challenges entered :

Lilies little fairies : snow is falling

now my pc is playing up, think it's the internet on a go slow. Soaked the clothes, not much ink coming out...teenagers ...if children where born as teens the human race would soon become extinct I'm sure....

keep smiling . janex

What a wash day disaster. Of course - it won't be Sam's fault will it? He'll say you should have checked all the pockets etc first.
Love this LOTV image and those papers look good too. Great card.
If I could send you some energy through the post I would. I've just got back from a great evening's dancing - now I need to wind down before I nod off.

Not a good start to the day Jane, I find all sorts in my washing machine - including a biro, which fortunately did not leak - mine is usually things like broken guitar strings and golf tees.
Your card is pretty, it has a lovely traditional feel.

It certainly doesn't sound like the best start to a day Jane, but I guess things can only get better.

Another delightful Christmas card, your box must be full of beautiful makes send this season.

Thanks so much for joining us at Stamping Sensations challenge this month.
