Fussy and Fancy Challenge #179-"Angels/Fairies or Winter"

Good Friday morning dear blogging friends!

Well we're almost at the BIG day!!  And are we prepared??!!  It certainly looks a lot like Christmas here with all the snow that came our way Sunday and Monday! 

Today at Fussy and Fancy we begin the last challenge of 2016...this challenge will run for four weeks bringing us into the New Year!!  Our hostess is our talented Jules who has chosen "Angels/Fairies or Winter" as her theme!  We have Lawn Fawn as our wonderful sponsor!

I've been trying to use up stash in my quest to tone down my craft is currently taking up about 1,000 square feet of the finished part of our basement...I've been asked to bring it down to about half that...YIKES!!!  Not sure how I'm going to achieve this??!!

Anyway the point is that I've been wading through stuff I didn't even know that I had!!

Here is what I came up with...
please click on the first image for a closer view/slideshow...
I found these DARLING decoupage images...I've NEVER done decoupage so thought "YUP...let's do this!"
these darling little Angels fit right into Jules theme...
 this one I made into a little sitting Angel by taking a half circle...forming it into a cone... covering it with lace...then topping with this darling decoupage image...
 I added sparkly ribbon to the back with a tag punched from Maja Design DP and "Merry Christmas" ribbon...
the stamp is Whimsy...
 I cut two tags using a Tim Holtz die and Maja Design DP...
added a scalloped oval matt cut with a Spellbinders die and Maja DP...
added one of my favs...cheesecloth and then the image...
finished with sparkly ribbon and "Merry Christmas" bow and tag...
oh and lovely lace bottom of course...
 the other image...

And those are my "Angel" gift tags!!  Now it's time for you to pay my talented team mates a visit at Fussy and Fancy...then come on and join us...we always LOVE to see what you have to inspire us with!!
