Hark The Herald Angels Sing!

I did say in my previous post today that I would post more candy, and I had the most wonderful find in my local charity shop this afternoon, and thought I would share it with you. I was rummaging through a box of Christmas decorations, and there peeping out at me was a whole bag full of these gorgoeus angels. They are minute, about 1 1//4 inch high, and were hanging on a gold bauble chain. I am not sure if you are like me, but if I see something I can alter I grab it, and these little ANGELS were in my grubby inky paws before you could blink. I have altered one with gold Precious Metal Colour, and the other is how it comes.

So to share my good fortune, and because it is Christmas, I am giving 1 of them away to you., along with another set of Christmas mini stamps.


I used the Merry Christmas from this set on some tags I made for pressies for the family and friends. I distress inked the tags, stamped with distress ink , and the words in Black Archival, and then used Rock candy crackle paint on one of them. I then brushed gold Perfect Pearls over the crackle.  I left the other one plain.


So, if you would like the stamps and the angel, all you have to do is post a comment, and for another chance add the candy to your blog, and Bob's your uncle! Well, if you have an Uncle Bob please wish him Happy Christmas from me!
I will leave this post up until Monday 28th, and because I love giving stuff away, I will even give a angel to two more bloggers. . They are just divine.. litle cupies, I think!
A very MERRY CHRISTMAS to you and yours,
Hugs

The Angel reminds me of the first thing I ever purchased as a very young child~ a Glow-in-the-Dark Baby Jesus! (Only the Baby had a bed made of plastic hay & no wings). I still have and love that Religeous novelty item.
Please enter me for your Giveaway including the mini stamp set~Thank you!
