Falliday for Christmas
Still working my way through the fun Falliday challenges over on Splitcoast. I miss Hope You Can Cling To, but I'm glad they were able to make a new event with challenges. This card is for Ann's challenge. She gave us an angel template to work with and this was what I ended up with. Weird confession, but I don't like angels. You hear that word too much when your child dies and I have an aversion to it now. I decided to be inspired by the angels I do like, the Willow Tree ones. I chose my colors based on those and I think it turned out nice. I might use this card and find a new Willow Tree angel as a just because gift for my mom. :)
Here's a simple wreath card for Holly's challenge. She asked us to use holly leaves and berries. I don't have anything that looks exactly like that, but I tried using this cute wreath set. It's been neglected from back in my demo days, so it was nice to ink it up.
Just a question: I know a lot of people began following me because of Stampin' Up! and I know I don't use those products as much lately. I've fallen in love with Copics and distress inks and I don't find those as easy to use with SU. Would you like me to go back to using some SU maybe once a week or so? It would likely be retired products, so keep that in mind.
