Hi there everyone - I'm just posting the mid-month reminder card for CCAYR where our theme is 'Use Red and/or Pink and a Heart'.  I bought a few of the LOTV digi images when they came out and James Snow Angel is one that I thought would fit in really well with the heart.

 The sentiment reads 'May there always be an angel by your side'.  As you can tell from the pic on my blog I love Snow Angels!!!

The maestro took several pics of the little sentiment but the light was so dismal and the flash just made it glare so he had to leave it like this.  Bless him, he honestly did his best for me as usual.  This is for him for Christmas but as it is only February I know he won't remember it by the end of the year ('cos of all the cards he has to photograph for me!!)

I've never used pink and red together like this but I thought it worked with the pink in the scarf and on the boots - I might have changed James into a girl though!!   Oooops!
