Singing Angels


I'm so sorry i haven't been able to visit all your lovely blogs in the last couple of days, but on Friday i went to bed at 6pm and have not really surfaced for 48 hours - i have had a head cold, and am still not feeling 100%, but am getting there. I was supposed to take H to see 'Frozen' yesterday with a friend, fortunately Alan took him instead (Alan hates going to kids movies, but he said this one was brilliant) and today H and i were supposed to go to Leeds Castle, instead H has gone to the local leisure centre, but looking at the weather, i'm glad we didn't go !!, tomorrow Alan is taking H to London, as his European Director throws a huge party for all the employees children.

I must confess i finished making this card on Friday and all it needed was photographing !!. Right note to myself, for the New Year - buy a new set of HM Christmas stamps as this is the one set i have !!, after seeing the Challenge on House Mouse And Friends - Silver or Gold, it gave me a good excuse to use my : Bo Bunny - 'Silver And Gold Collection Papers', the sentiment is : PB - 'Holly - Jolly Transparent Set', the holly is : Marianne D - 'LR0244' (for the larger one) and MS Punch - 'Holly' (for the 2 smaller ones), i've highlighted the berries with : Stickles - 'Burgandy', i didn't have gold pearls, so i just covered some with Versa Mark and Gold Embossing Powder.

House Mouse And Friends - where Challenge HMFMC 160 is 'Use Silver or Gold'
