PTI Blog Hop ~ November 2011

Hi everyone, today I am participating in the Papaertrey Ink's monthly blog hop. Here is the inspiration for this month's challenge...

What inspired me from this picture was the warmth of the home setting. The stairs all decorated for Christmas...someone is thinking about skating and everyone is feeling festive.  
Here is my entry...

I have made this card for my mom because my husband and boys and I will be away for Christmas day.  We usually spend Christmas at her house, which is a very warm and inviting place filled with wonderful past Christmas memories.
Since we will be away I wanted her to know that our hearts will be with her throughout Christmas day. My mom loves angels so it seemed like a perfect fit!

To make this card I have use Recollections paper, the red patterned paper is from the Believe stack.
I have used the Love Lives Here stamp set to stamp the red and green pattern, the sentiment and the angel. She is cut out with the coordinating die for this stamp set.  The label with sentiment is cut out with the Christmas label.
I have distressed the edge of the paper with Antique Linen distress ink from Ranger and the label with Fire Brick

Thanks for stopping by,
