Angelic Mimi

Hey Peeps!   How's your weekend going so far?   For me, it was fabulous!!!  I started the day by heading straight to Jenny's Craft Fair.  She and her crafty friends had a really nice variety of awesome creations and I finished my Christmas shopping there.  Then I headed to the Hilo High School Craft Fair and bought those scrubbies that's crocheted with netting.  I think those are the best for dishwashing.   Also, got a pkg. of Green Tea Dinner Rolls by Hilo Bake Company.  Ummmm, yummy.   There was a nice variety of  crafty creations there too.

Here's another set of Christmas cards I made.  This one featuring Mimi by Penny Black.  I almost sold this set but realized I didn't use this particular image yet so I held onto it and really happy with how it turned out.  Whew!  Of course, I HAD TO use Fran-tage as it is my newest favorite product to use.   Hawaii crafters, you can find it at Ben Franklin Crafts.

Here's a close-up of the poinsettia flowers by Poppy Stamps from Island Scrapbooking (IS).   I totally LOVE this die.  I remember my eyes popped when I saw it in the store and snatched it quick.  LOL.  Behind the poinsettias, I used the "Chloe Stem" die by Memory Box, also from  IS.

For the past several months, I've been making multiples of most of my cards, etc.   Here's a pix of the kit that I prepared before assembling them onto my cards for this set.  I actually enjoy making multiples because it gives me a greater sense of accomplishment.   :-)

And here are 5 of them.....

Other fun and crafty items used:
Spellbinder dies
Sentiment - I made my own
Pearls by Kaiser Craft

I'm entering the card in the following challenges:

You are so organized and hard working. Your card sets are super. I think this angel card design is my favorite one. I like the white on white and I think I will try it on a future project. Thank you for sharing your work.
