Angles and Sheep

Stamps: #3010 Christmas Angel from Magnolia-Licious Other: 2" Wired Ribbon; Gold self adhesive pearls by unknown; Gold embossing powder; Inky Light Deluxe Starter Kit from Inky Antics; Copics: Hair: E99, Y23,11...Dress: E31,30,000....Wings: G85,82,20...burgundy trim/shoes: R39,37....Stars: Y28,26,23 and the gold Spica.



I am in love!
With this OH SO SWEET Christmas Angel Tilda! Another new stamp image from the So Jolly Collection available at Magnolia-licious. I hope that I have time to use all the stamps before Christmas!!! I think I will make time! They are SOOOOO ADORABLE!! Don't we say that about every collection!? LOL! But seriously, how sweet is this little Angel?!
I am also in love with these light blocks. I have seen them around the stamping world for several years, but never attempted one. Finally, I got the kit from Inky Antics. I have been waiting to get my new Magnolia Christmas stamps to make a light...and I am glad...because every once in awhile I make something that I am really pleased with. This is one of them. You know why? Because I think it has a WOW factor but is WAY easy to make. The Inky kit has everything except the stamps and ribbon in it! This made it SO EASY for my first light. Because I didn't have to go out and find everything on my own and guess if I were getting the right things. No, Inky Antics is not asking to promote these! LOL! I know I sound like I am a 2 am infomercial for Inky Light kits...but seriously, so easy! Sure, then once you got it down you can try to get the elements needed on your own. But I have spent the week trying to find glass blocks at a reasonable price or in this 4.5" size....also I can't find mini sets of light on WHITE cords. On the ones I am finding the cords are green...which I think would take away from this. The instructions on how to make the light are HERE. I also purchase an EZ Bow Maker from Michaels. Another handy dandy item that helped me to make this pretty bow in just a few minutes. I was pretty happy with that. I have to say that even Pat was impressed when I brought the finished project up. I got an authentic "Oh wow! That's NICE!" Then he starts man-handling it trying to see how it was put together...my glue wasn't even totally dry yet! LOL!


Talk about cute image overload! Looky at the new Digi Images that Pink Cat Studio is releasing today!! I must say that I am pretty darn lucky to be on some FANTASTIC Design Teams... All these cute images to work with!




I made the card below with the same sheep image. I just flipped it and resized it. That way I had a whole sheep family. I will be posting a card with that adorable piggy in the near future. I just haven't made it yet!


Well, it's 3:30 in the AM so I need to be off to bed. But before I go, I want to thank everyone for the all the prayers and good thoughts for my hubby to resume work soon. All prayers and and good jujus are appreciated. I am also glad that many of you enjoyed my wacky thought process of making a card! Heck, with I am surprised that you actually read all that!! LOL! Thanks for stopping by here each day your comments are always appreciated. (((hugs)))

Have a Tremendous Thursday!

Scrappinangler said...

Kerri, I about fell out of my chair laughing when I saw your sheep card! LOVE the 'herd' idea - too cute. So sorry to hear about your hubby, hope he finds something quick. My hubby got laid off last summer ('08) and did not find anything for several months. He took something in the interim and just recently got on with the company he wanted to work for in Oct 09. He is just now in a more stable industry with a better job and it changed our lives over the last year. I will keep your family in my prayers. I know exactly how you feel about not wanting to express your feelings to your hubby, Mine is the worrier too i nthe relationship and I was the one saying God has a plan and we need to just Trust and wait - it is really hard to believe that everyday. I am sending big hugs your way! ON a lighter note, your Tilda light is awesome. My hobby lobby has a bunch of those blocks, so I might have to try it out myself! ~Tori

Maria said...

Holy Moly, Kerry! Your Tilda project is so pretty! I love all the pretty bows and your beautiful coloring. You also did a wonderful job with the PCS card. . .love that you created a bunch of sheeps with the scenary. . .what a great way to use the digi images!!

Candy said...

Kerry your projects are both adorable. I made those light blocks years ago for my whole family - before I learned to stamp - by using Graphics from the Net. I did have to run ALL over for all the parts and my husband had to drill holes in the blocks so I could get the set of lights inside. So I think it is WONDERFUL that kits are available now!! I must get myself one because I never did make one for ME!!!!
Love the family of sheep card! Fantastic colours!!
Big hugs, Candy

Cheryl said...

Kerry, there is always a surprise when I come to your blog! Yesterday a wonderful card and hilarious story that we can all relate to and today the wonderful glass block project and and adorable card!
Wishing your family the best in this tough time.
Stamping is such good therapy for stress, isn't it?
