Well my last post for the old year and what better way to ring in the New Year than to have a guardian Angel Herald it in. I love this Angel stamp-One can do so much with this stamp but I decided to make it simple and embossed it with  Egyptian gold powder. I then placed it on black and gold cardstock. I have so many favourite stamps but angels  always love. I also could not help but place a picture of my tree. I love Christmas and decorated my whole house but this is my tree. I love coloured lights. I have glass blown ornaments along with egg ornaments my mom made and gifts from people and then I hang the tinsel on one strand at a time. This was how my great grandmother decorated in Germany, my Oma and my mom. It will probably die with me but not before enjoying all the times I had making it. Now I plan on making this for at least another 50 years so that will mean I will be 100:) Happy New Year everyone


  1. Your angel card is beautiful Birgit, I can see how this would be a favourite stamp. I love the gold embossing and delicate gold edging. I saw it on MIM.
    Your Christmas tree looks wonderful too, it is great to keep up family traditions.
