Angels we have heard on high...

TGIF once again my crafty peeps!

Twas the day before the night before, and all through the house... LOL! :)
I've got a quickie card to share today, seeing as I've had Angel Celestina all colored up ever since the "lights/whites" video that I did a while back it would be a shame not to get her on a card before Christmas. She is such a beauty that I thought it best to keep things fairly CAS so I stayed with one subtle print and a touch of silver and sparkle to pull it all together. I think the whole thing looks quite peaceful and serene.

And while I hate to cut this post short, I really must "dash away, dash away, dash away all!"
So much to do and so little time left... I found a recipe on Pinterest for eggnog pound cake that I want to make for this weekend's festivities and that means a trip to the grocery store for some eggnog. Wish me luck that I don't botch the dessert. LOL
