Welcome to my "The Angel Company" Blog

I am an independent demonstrator for The Angel Company. TAC carries a wonderful variety of rubber stamps and our own scrapbook papers. You can also purchase inks, chalks, tools, etc.
I am located in the Kansas City KS area and I also have a home on the Lake of the Ozarks in Warsaw MO. I would love to have you host a FunShop to learn a new stamping or card making technique or style. Have a few friends in and have some crafting fun. Hostesses can earn free and half priced items. I can also take orders if you do not wish to have a FunShop.

Winner from last week

The winner from the "Child's Birthday" challenge is......Karen! Send me your address and I'll get the prize in the mail.

Doubled the number of entries this week! Well,  four is double of 2. Could we reach 8 next challenge?? Due to the holiday chaos I am giving the new challenge (see the post below) 2 weeks. It is due January 4th.

Merry Christmas everyone!

Challenge #3 - Anything Snows

Ready for round 3?? This week's theme is "Anything Snows!" Your card, layout, ATC or project must include snow: snowflakes, snowballs, snow on the evergreens, snowman/lady. It can be for New Year's, birthday, thinking of you, whatever you choose as long as there's snow. AND you actually have 2 weeks for this challenge because of the hectic schedules during the holidays. The deadline will  be January 4th at 6 a.m. central time. Other than the adjustment to the deadline, all other rules still apply.

I am going to wait and post some samples later in the week. But here is a photo to get you in the mood.

Challenge #2

 Theme: A Child's Birthday

Since Christmas is the birthday of Jesus, I am extending that to birthday cards for children in general. Make a card, layout, ATC (artist trading card) or other project appropriate for celebrating a child's birthday. You may use any colors, but "Happy Birthday", "Birthday Wishes" or similar sentiment must be visible. Again you may use images from any source but if you use stamps from The Angel Company and cite them in your supply list on your blog, you will have an extra entry for the drawing.

The prize this week, determined by random.org, is a package of assorted ribbons.

Be sure to review the Challenge Rules.
This week's challenge will be due Tuesday, December 21st @ 6:00 a.m. US central time.

  • Image: The Angel Company - Boyz & Girlz
  • Sentiment: The Angel Company
  • Cardstock: Recollections
  • Pearls: Mark Richards
  • Charm & Heart Brads from stash.
 Last week's winner for the gratitude card is Kateri! While there were only a couple of entries, I am hoping to see more this week.
