Fond Farewell TAC Blog Hop


The Angel Company has officially closed it doors and hung up its wings.  For me that has been very sad.  My life has been so blessed by TAC and Mischelle Smith.  I will miss the many angel friends who stamped together at our seminars and angel gatherings.  I know some have already gone on to other stamping adventures with other companies.  I wish them all the best and success!  For me, I will not join another company but just stamp independently, teach classes, and perhaps do some designing online for companies. 

This Paper Wings Fond Farewell TAC Blog Hop is special.  We all want to honor Mischelle Smith and our memories with The Angel Company during the past years.  For me it has been nine of the best years of my life.  I've spread my wings with my creativity, made some wonderful friendships ~ some that I know will endure ~ and been blessed in so many ways.  The Angel Company was really an inspiration to all who came in contact with it.  "We've been blessed so that we may be a blessing", Mischelle said.  I realized more than ever how card making and sending cards truly can be a ministry to others to encourage, pray, bless, strengthen, and help them through life's journey.

For this blog hop I made a prayer wallet from a file folder.  I will be praying for Mischelle and her family and for all the angels who feel the loss with me at this time.  So a prayer wallet is appropriate.

The outside of the wallet has a stamp from the set Sit Quietly, along with one of the sayings.  How just-right is that for what we all need to do right now?  I used one of my favorite paper pads, Rustic Chic.  The Spellbinders nesties are Labels 4 and 10 and the cardstock is from the Hemmingway cardstock.  The image is colored with Copics YG13,17, E74, 77, 79, and C1,3.  The wallet is closed with a green bow attached on the reverse.



The first two pockets in the wallet are for Prayer Requests and Prayer Answers.  I used sayings from Anchor to the Soul and Grace and Peace.  Silk flowers and Bitty Blossoms with a sticker jewels are the embellishments.



The second page of pockets are for Thanks and for Salvation prayers.  The sayings are from Sit Quietly and Grace and Peace.  All the insert lists are computer generated.

Continue on with the blog hop so you won't miss anyone's creation and final farewell.

Thanks for visiting my blog.  Blessings!
