Born to Fly!

Good morning! I've had quite the day yesterday! We had major storms hit the Chicago land area leaving us without power for 8 hours. I am not complaining though because as of late last night there were still hundreds of thousands still without power. So I was one of the lucky ones. Our yard sustained some damage......but fortunately our house and pool are okay.....thank goodness!

I have a Crafty Secret's card to share with you today from a brand new set called, Born to Fly! It is such a darling, deliciously vintage set! It is great for coloring or paper piecing! I chose to color this sweet angel with Copic Markers. She was cut out and a bit of glossy accents and glitter were added to her eyes and lips. I created a shelf for her to rest on using the scalloped stamp from the set. I used a piece of doily that I had cut using a Papertrey Ink doily die. The large wings behind her are chipboard pieces from Tattered Angels that were sprayed with Glimmer Mist and inked on the edges. I added glossy accents and glitter as well!
I stamped the sentiment on a little tag that was cut from my Cricut Expression and Sentimental's Cartridge using two colors of Papertrey Ink.

I have just a couple of pictures of our poor yard. I didn't get pictures of everything......like our pool cover that blew onto our cable line......or Kyle's golf net that was literally wrapped around the swing set, broken and splintered. Or the huge tree that came down in our front yard nearly missing my house.......but really, I feel very fortunate that it was mostly just messy, inconvenient, and a part of the fence needing to be replaced. IT could have been so much worse.

My helper, sawing down the branches to get it off the swing set!

And my poor fence............*sigh*

Thank you so much for stopping by........your visits mean the world to me! : )

Love the card. Will have to show my daughter. She loves vintage and angels. Glad to see you guys are ok but that doesn't take away the mess you have after the storm. God bless.
