On the wings of an Angel...

So there's this challenge going on over at Verve Stamps...

a company I'm ashamed to say I didn't really know anything about other than their sponsorship of the MOJOMonday contests. while I was blurfing yesterday I clicked a button and went to their store...Wow...I'm in trouble
I see some shopping in my immediate future...
I happened upon this Encouraging Words challenge

which inspired me to make a few cards

I didn't have any Verve Stamps to use, but that's not a requirement.

Here's what I came up with for today.

Supplies Used: Basic Grey Bittersweet Paper, Heidi Swap Angel Wing Stamps, Cat's Life Press Sentiment

I have been looking for a way to use those angel wings forever. I love them!

Speaking of Angels...

there's a book coming out tomorrow that I think is going to be HUGE...

Beyond HUGE probably
(um..ahem..I'm having trouble keeping up with my book blog if you haven't noticed since I went back to work)


You're about to fall in love with a Fallen Angel

hits bookstores tomorrow

I can't wait to hear what you guys think!!
