You Gave My Heart Wings!

We will be celebrating Christmas dinner today as my nephew will be heading home tomorrow after a round of golf.  I never could get into hitting that little ball around a grassy field toward a little hole WAY out there!  I much prefer getting a good fast horse under me and  racing the wind!  Needless to say, I have no horse but did many years ago.  But now, are you ready to see my hubby's favorite card of the 3?  Here it comes!

I've been dreaming of this card for a couple years.  Why did it take me so long???  I guess I was just waiting for the right time.  The hearts were done with the Art Philosophy Cricut cartridge, but not the wings!  Have you figured out how I made them?   Here's a closer look....

I added streaks of Icicle Stickles to give a hint of feathers (well, sorta) and added the little heart bead to the heart.  Wings and hearts were lightly sponged with brown ink.  Ok, now I'll tell you how I made the wings.  Believe it or not, I used a scalloped paisley die from Spellbinders and my Wizard machine!  Ha! Bet you didn't think of that!! The paper is by Authentique and the text is computer generated.  I used my new Fiskars Bubble border punch for the kraft side of the pattern paper.  Hmmm..... now what will I make for hubby?

I do have a post for Christmas day as I do celebrate the day my LORD and Savior came to earth as a son of man so that we can become sons of God.  I will be making Christmas dinner today when we get back from church.  We will be having some family time with my folks, my brother and his wife, my nephew and his girlfriend and her daughter.  Will be fun getting 9 of us to a table (2 actually).  Hope you have some great family time this week!
