The Christmas Tree & The Angel

Time for bed, just time to post these 2 cards which we'll be making in my October club, along with the frappuccino bottle. I love this little tree, so sweet and simple. The Very Vanilla layer is popped up over the 'Be of Good Cheer' DSP. I then dotted the 'baubles' on the designer paper with Crystal Effects and added the star. Cute!

Here's my angel. I wonder if Mum will giggle when she sees this ... you know what it reminds me of, Mum? The angel you made for the top of your Christmas Tree when you and Dad were first married ... with the ping pong ball head and silver tinsel wrapped around it. You painted on the face ... JUST LIKE THIS ONE! Once I thought of it I couldn't stop laughing!!! Do you still have her? If you do, we should take a photo to post here. They're twins :)

Joking aside, this is actually a really clever idea. It's a scallop circle trimmed up to look like an angel. Here's the post with instructions. I just added the 'face' and the gold halo.
