Christmas Angel

I find it fun and more enjoyable to work on my Christmas cards all through out the year rather than waiting until the actual Christmas season arrives. So when I saw that the Double D challenge was to make a background using your stash of papers, I decided my Christmas scrap bag was the perfect one to visit this week. After arranging these scraps I decided on this angel image from Unity to add to the front. Since I left her mostly white, those background colors from all those Christmas paper scraps contrasted nicely. I love making beautiful things with even my scraps that are left over from previous projects. It reminds me of how my grandmother would use pieces of fabric left over from some of my mother's  (her daughter in law)  previous sewing projects for her quilts. It was fun finding those in these beautifully made quilts.I was fortunate to have these two talented ladies in my life, whose influences had a lot to do with my paper crafting.

Here is where you can find the double d challenge:
