Christmas Card ~ Wishing You Angel (post #1)

Have I told you how much I enjoy summer vacation?...
Now don't get me wrong I have the BEST job in the whole wide world.
What other job can you take children struggling in reading and math and help them to achieve their potential?
Sometimes we all need just that extra little something to help us make it over a hurdle and then we are on our way.
AND as a bonus I get gifts of sweet little hugs and cute little smiles everyday.
I truly am blessed but back to the enjoying summer subject...
I have had a ton of time to catch up on my card making and to replenish my card stash.
Since I do not get paid for my summer vacation I have had to stick to a budget and shop from my crafting stash.
The fun challenges I have been playing along with have encouraged me to dig deep into the supplies I have neglected since getting my Cricut and then my Silhouette.
I have rediscovered my HUGE stamp stash and am not just looking for just the right sentiment to go with the project I am working on.
This beautiful angel stamp I used for my first card from one of those tucked away stamps.

*Card base 5.5 x 4.25 in.
*Design paper from the DCWV Winter Magic matstack.
*Sentiment stamped on the Scroll Die  from Verve Stamps
*Sentiment from my stash.
*Angel stamp from the Inkadinkado stamp set called Angel.
*Stamping and sponging done with the Moostruck CTMH stamp pad.

May your day always be filled with love.

Please join me and play along with these terrific challenges!
