Good morning to you! I hope you had a lovely long weekend :) It went by in a flash, it seems and the alarm clock went off waaaay to early today!
And I'm so excited to have seen in blog land this morning that I won a Gift Certificate from Our Daily Bread! What an unexpected but delightful surprise :) I just purchased their new Grunge Cross at release time so I can't wait to ink that up, and then head over to OBD to see what's there is to oogle over!
I wanted to share a card that I made for a special friend as part of a rubber stamp exchange. Our fearless leader, Kadie, put a card swap group together a few years back called the Sisterhood of the Traveling Cards (S.O.T.C) and we're still swapping today :) She had a wonderful idea to dig out our unused, neglected stamps and send them to another sistah in the group to ink up, make a card, and mail them both back! So we'll all send a card, receive a card, using stamps that (hopefully!) we didn't have. In my case, I have a basket full of C.C. Designs as they are just as yummy but luckily didn't have this angel set! And who says angels are just for Christmas :) I made a cheerful, happy card because friends are truly the angels that make this world a better place and they are around us all the time. Thank you, Kadie, for the use of your wonderful angels - I was a bit nervous having to make a card for "the boss", lol! *smile!* I just hope I did justice to the Christmas angels and they work for a cheery card, too! :)
I do believe there are real angels all around us all the time :) I have felt the power and miraculous touch of a guardian angel TWICE in my children's lives and to receive such a gift is immeasurable. And I know that I have seen a real angel ~ although I didn't think it was possible. I am convinced that it was not in my imagination and remember the feeling of pure peace and a magnitude of awe so pure and intense, it brought me to my knees right there in the middle of where I was standing. One day I will share that story :)

In the meantime, here is a beautiful and touching angel video by Bliss - it's long but wonderful and just made my morning! I hope it shows up for viewing :)
