I don't know how things are looking in your neck of the woods but around here the snow level is creeping further and further down the surrounding mountains at an alarming rate. This may just be one of those years where we end up getting some snow by Halloween. I can't say that I'm a fan of winter arriving quite this early, especially when it feels like I was finally getting to settle in and enjoy fall.
I'm thinking that the chill in the air could be a contributing factor to my return to card making having a decidedly holiday type vibe. Though, more likely it is all the cute Christmas stamps and pretty papers that have been coming out recently. ;)
Speaking of which... it's review preview day for the October Sweet November release today and this time I decided to use the digital version of Angel Noelle. I wanted to be able to blow her up a bit larger than the rubber stamp version so that she wouldn't be overshadowed but that fantastic, but kind of busy, winter berry print. I actually feel like I cheated a bit with the coloring because instead of Copics I used some gold Smooch to color in her wings and halo. But I think the effect is really lovely so I'll probably be doing it again sometime.
Be sure to check out the ATS blog today for loads of angelic inspiration from my fellow teamies. And in just a few short days we will be starting up a whole new round of previews along with all of the fun that goes along with them, so you won't want to miss that!
