An Angel!

Well girls I can't believe it's the 12th of January and I've made a Christmas card! Isn't this a lovely angel from Whiff of Joy. I hope it should fit a few challenges.

The challenge from Whiff of Joy is red and aqua. I used the lovely sketch from Secret Crafter and the challenge from ABC Christmas challenge is A for angel plus charms or beads. Realised also that the Paperplay challenge is Precious metals and I do have a metal charm on the card!

DP - Cosmo Cricket Jolly by Golly.
Colouring - Promarkers.
Card Candy and sentiment - Craftwork Cards.
Flowers - Hero Arts.
I think that's it!
It seems to be a bit wet here at the moment. It has been very windy and now rainy. The snow is going down but unfortunately it is very icy. I could hardly walk this morning with the dog so I just gave up lol! I had to walk to my neighbour's house where my car was but I managed without falling...luckily. My husband said not to even try the short way home as it was impossible so I had to go the long way. It was also very icy but also very rutted and in places very wet. I have now got the car as far as the gate but it was very difficult to walk in the drive as it was very icy and I am very scared of ice. I fell on a slippy floor when I was 2 and broke my leg and had to spend a long time in traction (with both legs stuck in the air). Thanks to the wonderful care at Yorkhill sick children's hospital in Glasgow I have never had any after effects apart from a terrible fear of slippy situations lol!
I'm off to enter some challenges. As usual I have a feeling I am too late for one of the challenges. Never mind it is a start of my Christmas cards so that can't be a bad thing.
Just to add - yes I was right I was too late for the Whiff of Joy challenge. I find that the problem is that often you don't know when a challenge ends. It's really helpful when a time is specified. Of course it is not always GMT so for us in the UK (ok me) other countries' times can be a bit confusing. Maybe I'd get on better if I just assumed that the latest time was the morning of the day before at the latest not the evening. I'll just have to try to do challenges earlier not at the last minute.
I also meant to say that I've added a banner for "Say no to verification". The ABC Christmas challenge blog are keen for us all to say no to verification and they are offering blog candy if we turn off verification. It makes it much quicker to leave comments and you can always use owner approval to screen comments if you are worried about spam. I didn't realise I had it on so I have turned it off now and entered the challenge.
See you tomorrow and I'd love to hear what you think about my Christmas card.
