Hello fabulous friends, followers and visitors!  
I am popping by with a card, to wish all of you a Merry Christmas and 
a very happy and peaceful 2012.
Thank you so much for your wonderful inspiration and friendship during the past two and a half years - some on-line, some in real life - all of it has been appreciated 100%. 
 My Christmas card has been made with one of the beautiful stamps I was lucky enough to win  at  Glenda's  "Chocolate Baroque White Christmas Challenge" (please see the link in my sidebar). The  image is from a set called "Christmas Angel of Light".


Image stamped onto cream card with Black Versafine ink and heat embossed with clear powder. 
Coloured with Distress Inks - Antique Linen, Wild Honey, Spiced Marmalade, using Cut 'n Dry Foam, and Ranger Pen Nibs.
Edges distressed with scissors.
Image layered onto a roughly torn piece of "My Minds Eye - Mabel" paper, also distressed and inked around the edges.
Sentiment - two HOTP stamps.
Gold leafing  Krylon pen around edges of  black base card.
~ Have a wonderful Holiday, wherever you may be ~
~ Lots of love ~
