Thank You TAC...

 Every month Paper Wings puts on an Angels Art Blog Hop, sadly this months hop is our Final Farewell to The Angel Company. I have been an Angel for 5 years, and have truly loved every minute of it. I thought I would share some of my favorite projects with you. When I started going through all my pictures I was shocked at just how many things I have made in this time, holy cow! It was kind of hard to narrow it down to just this many!
 This was one of the first cards that I ever made! I started this journey as a scrapbooker (gasp!) still am! I didn't really make cards at all back then. I was at a scrapbook retreat just after becoming an Angel, and they asked me to do a make and take to show my products, I had limited supplies (and knowledge.)
This is the first card that I made that I truly loved, it came out exactly as I had pictured it, yeay!! Colored with watercolor crayons.
Fun clock colored with prisma colored pencils and OMS, used running stitches to turn the clock into a baseball!
 First try with cracked glass.
Loved these cute kid stamps, this cowboy was one of my all time favorites!
Learning to color with Copic markers!
 Recent favorites.

Thank you to TAC for all that you have given me, and for all the ways you have helped me grow as a person and an artist. For all the wonderful people I have met and all the fantastic friends that I have made!! I have loved this adventure, and will miss this company and our products more than I can ever say in words! Hugs to all my fellow Angels out there! Good luck to each of you as you begin an new adventure, whatever that may be!!
Please be sure to follow the hop and see every one's tribute to The Angel Company!! It is sure to be fabulous!!

Terrific cards Angela! Seeing the first one made me almost cry. Seminar seems like it was so long ago now. :) I posted a bit late, but it's there now.

I love the little cowboy too! Great card!

Christine Pennington said...

Angela, my friend. I am so glad God brought us together in June. You have been special to me for a long time. I had to smile at your first few cards--girl you have rocked it and grown so much in your designing. You are such an inspiration to me and the rest of us. I won't say good-bye, instead until we meet again. ♥ya!

Oh Angi! I loved seeing your progression in stamping. Without the Angel Company we never would have met.I'm so glad we did and can continue our friendship. It means so much to me. The only thing I would have changed about this post would be to put a kleenex warning at the beginning. ;)

StampinCarol said...

What fun to see our past projects! These are wonderful! And, of course, your wonderful catalog cover card! Just love your talent!

Kim said...

It was so fun to see your cards, some for the first, and others for the second time. You do such gorgeous work, but seeing it reminds me of just how far we have all come in our journey as angels.
