100th Post- Digi Angel for Nancy

 I knew I had to have this Angel Digi Freebie the moment I looked at it!  You see, my stamping friend Nancy LOVES ANY and EVERY angel she sees.........
This will be Nancy's Christmas card.  You can find this Angel Digi here at Delightful Inspiration- no longer free after Monday 12/21....

I printed out the Angel onto Vanilla SU cardstock. I colored the image with Copic markers: R46, R39 then R59; G24, G29, Y21 and then the edges with Y21, E31, E33-picking up colors from my BG paper.  The BG paper is from Joann Fabric- DCWV Holiday Collection. The pattern is from the Technique Junkies latest newsletter and it is called Herringbone.

I recycled some ribbon and a large SU brad from a card that was sent to me about  month or so ago, and then added some generic Vanilla colored brads to coordinate. I also pierced the Upper Rt corner of the main image piece and below the lettering.  The lettering (sentiment) is from a SU set- also recycled from the same card.....I am not sure of the name.
I sure hope Nancy does not stop by here before she gets this- but if she does, I think she will like what she see's!!!

Now I need to figure out a special card for my friend Diane..........

Have a Wonderful Blessed Christmas if you do celebrate!

Oh- I will have to come up with some fun Blog Candy to Celebrate 100 posts!!!  Wahoo !!!
