I thought of this card last night during all the rain and got really excited to make it but it was just too late!!... finally today I got the chance and I am excited at how it turned out... to me it is such a happy card... sometimes we think of rain as a bother ... something that gets in our way... I felt like this is how God thinks of the rain.... a happy moment... the angles going about their work being happy... I hope that you like it... thank you so much for looking... thank you too for any comments they just make my day! ... Hugs, Jeannie

Easter 2010
Shorter Grass cut @ w 1.98 x h 1.19 ... place two in the mat and weld them together....this is the grass on the very front row.... on the Cricut I would cut 2 or these at 1 1/4 inches...and overlap them on the card to get the length you need.
Taller Grass (2) ...duplicate the shorter grass then unlink the width and height and change the height to
 h 1.59.....when I cut two rows of the same grass I flip the second row so they won't just overlap each other...on the Cricut I would cut 4 of these @ 1 1/2 inches and overlap on the card to get the length you need.
Walk in My Garden
Daffodils and their layers cut @ w 0.69 x h 1.74... I welded 5 to one piece of tall grass and 4 to the other piece of tall grass.. on the Cricut I would cut these at 1 3/4 inches and place five in front of the back row of grass and 4 in front of the middle row of grass.
*I wanted just the yellow part of the Daffodils to place over my green ... before I added the layers so I added that many daffodils to my mat and moved all but the tops of the flowers off the page.. see mat shot below... so I could put yellow over the green...then add the layers.

Watering can (2)  cut @ w 1.34 x h 0.89... I popped one off the other....on the Cricut I would cut these @ 3/4 an inch.
Angel Instructions
New Arrival

Baby cut @ w 1.20 x h 1.42...on the Cricut I would cut this at 1 1/2 inches.
Paper Doll Dress Up
Angel's Hair is Raggedy Andy's hair cut @ w 1.29 x h 2.42...weld three of these onto the babies heads cut the fourth one in yellow..... on the Cricut I would cut this @ 1 inch...I think that will work... you can glue these to the baby's heads if using your Cricut.
Pooh and Friends
Butterflies cut @ w 0.80 x h 0.88.. I welded a George rectangle cut @ w 0.20 x h 0.27 to the bottom of the butter them ...then duplicate...flip the second one from top to bottom and rotate it... move into place and group all of these are going to trim off the tail and the nose and antennas and fold this in half...and glue it in between two of the angle cuts....on the Cricut I would cut 2 butterflies @ 1 inch.. glue the bodies together.. trim off the tail and the nose and antennas and glue that little part together... then glue this between two of the baby bodies.
Dreams Come True (Disney)
Clouds cut @ w 3.66 x h h 1.84... I love these clouds they are so magical... on the Cricut I would cut these @ 1 3/4 inches.

Thank you Jeannie,
I look at your website everyday to see what you have created next. It was a pleasant surprise to see your video on inking the cards. I have always admired the way you ink them. Your video makes me believe that I can ink also. Thanks for sharing.

Oh Jeannie,
I so love these little angel cards you make....
as for the angels working hard ....ya know if you could tell them to stop sending us snow that would be awesome. This past weekend it was wet snow you see the white fluffy stuff but when it hits the pavement it melts....
i think that the "Canadian" angel is the micheavous one....snow phhhbbbfffttt....
The only thing they are watering here is snow cones I tell ya.

How about I send that angel your way?

Love love love this card....So absolutely adorable!
You always know how to make me smile through your cards =)

Off to make a hot cup of cocao....

I have loved all your angel cards...they actually bring me to tears because they touch me so! Each one makes me think of my sister (I know she is an angel doing Gods work).

I wanted to drop by and thank you, once again, for being such an inspiration to me from the start of my paper crafting journey. You were always so willing to share your tips and your techniques. Your measurements and explanations allowed me to figure things out on my own and become a better card maker. Forever inspired by you, no matter what you do. Hugs to you.
