Christmas and a birthday

Gosh I love this image!  It reminds me so much of childhood Christmas.  I grew up Catholic with a holy water font by the light switches in the bedrooms of our house.  For some reason this pic reminds me of that.  There always seemed to be angels on them. :)

"Bad me" cuz I can not remember where I got this image - but it was probubly Graphic fairy?  It has been a while tho. Challenges I am in for? :  Raise the Bar= beginning to look like Christmas, Paper take weekly= anything goes with a "dangly" object (bell), Creative Belli= winter and Christmas+ old emb (image, bell), Hiding in my craft room=use scraps (Stella Rose scraps of dp here).
Next just sharing a card of my dd (child no 3of 4)  when she was 3yrs  blowing out candles on her cake....she is 27 today and getting married this New Years eve :)   Time flys! When it is one of my kids birthdays I like to make them a card using an old photo of them.   I used this VERY cool dp from DCWV called "the Colorful Life stack"..the artwork on the dp is from Donna Estabrooks and I LOVE her style...looks like cool art journal book paper with some glitter. 
TFL and have a great week! :)

Wow Jane your ATCs are so professional I feel kind of intimidated but am learning. Just checking to see if you received my ATC for Dec? I am into making all my Christmas gifts and end up with a pinched nerve in my neck from trying to make jewelry. Will be back in top shape after a little ice and/or hear routine. Blessings sista for the Christmas time.
