Angels Among Us Blog Hop

Oh I believe there are angels among us
Sent down to us from somewhere up above.
They come to you and me in our darkest hours.
To show us how to live to teach us how to give.
To guide us with the light of love.

(Lynne speaking) I know for myself, that I have a guardian angel watching over me as she is my very own precious child that I had lost in 1991 and she would have been 23 years old today. Strange how comforting it is to know that someone watches over us in sew many ways.

When life held troubled times, and had me down on my knees.
There’s always been someone there to come along and comfort me.
A kind word from a stranger, to lend a helping hand.
A phone call from a friend, just to say I understand.

Today's hop may be the story of our own Guardian Angel who watches over us, the beauty of angels, or just expressing kind words. The craft blogging world is phenomenal as sharing loving thoughts and caring towards others.

We have fabulous sponsors today

This blog hop is near and dear to my heart.
As you may know, by the title of my blog, 
I love angels and strongly believe they are among us each day. 
My daughter was an angel one year for Halloween. 
She was maybe 4 years old at the time. It was even then that I loved angels so much...
I think that is why she was an angel that year...
Jessica has always been my little angel...
Yep, this is my daughter in her Halloween costume.
I can remember when she went trick or treating she had to  turn to her side to
slide into the door ways, the wings were soooo big (one end they were taller than her)...
we got this darling dress the night before the occasion at the
local Joann's, it was one of the displays, anyway
it was perfect, like an angel brought it to us. It fit perfect could not have been better.
then we bought some white material and some fabric stiffener. We put the stiffener on the
material and put  it on the floor to dry, and prayed to the angels that it would dry for school in the morning... I colored the the wing tips with some gold paint...

There's my Angel
So to pay tribute to my angel obsession I made this cute card

I got to use my alcohol inks to color the digital stamp. The digi stamp is by Bugaboo...
added some bling and a bow...pretty easy...
