Cute Christmas Angel

I hope you're all having a great week, I've just about recovered from busy weekend at the Hobby Crafts show at the NEC, it was absolutely fab & I managed to get some crafty goodies & do some Make & Takes too.

Today Jellypark is sponsoring the Crimbo Crackers challenge which is "Sparkle" & who doesn't love a bit of sparkle (well maybe my hubby when it is covering most of the house including him! lol).  I used this gorgeous image by Claire at Jellypark called "Angel Girl Nativity".  I coloured her with ProMarkers, paper pieced her dress & added lots of glitter to her wings.  I finished off with a sequin border, tinsel halo, gem star, flower, button, bow, brad & greeting. If you're anything like me you're way behind with your Christmas cards so joining this challenge will get another one done!  

The challenges:
Crafty Hazelnut - Bright Colours &/or Sparkle
Sparkle Creations - Christmas Card (optional sketch)
Winter Wonderland - Make Your Card Sparkle
Little Claire - Christmas
Creative Craft - Minimalistic
The Crazy Challenge - Something With Wings
The Crafty Pad - Paper Piecing
Papertake - First Christmas
My Mum's Craft Shop - Sugar & Spice
Digi Tuesday - Anything Goes
Crafty Catz - Anything Goes
Crafty Boots - Young at Heart
Fetch A Sketch - Sketch!
Really Reasonable Ribbon - Christmas
Wacky Wednesday - Buttons, Bling or Brads
Truly Scrumptious - Bingo (Brads, Flowers Buttons)

I would also just like to mention in case anyone is interested Jellypark have a little group on the Crafter's Cafe & it is a great place to meet new friends, have a chat, get inspiration & pick a freebie or two along the way (there is a fabulous free Christmas fairy image available at the moment).
