The Final Farewell…

Sadly this week The Angel Company announced that they were closing their doors for good. Mischelle did everything she could to save The Angel Company and I can’t imagine what she’s going through now.  My heart goes out to her and to all my fellow Angels who have lost their businesses and are now faced with starting over.
In honor of Mischelle and The Angel Company, Paper Wings is hosting a final farewell blog hop.  This is our way of showcasing The Angel Company through the years, our way of saying thank you to Mischelle for 14 wonderful years as Angels.  We all will continue to soar with the creativity, the passion and the fun that we found while being a part of this company, it isn’t something that we will lose.
These cards are old so much so that they were scanned in which means I didn’t have a digital camera lol!  They are also very flat, which now seem kind of funny to look at.

Thank You Daisy Delight
Daisy Delight was one of the first stamp sets I got from The Angel Company.  It had all the things that I loved, flowers, butterflies, bees and dragonflies even!  It was versatile and easy to use since the stamps were solid it meant no coloring.

Friendship baskets was another earlier favorite of mine.  It came with two different size baskets, tag stamps in different styles (remember this was before die cuts!) and various sentiments.  It was fun to make these baskets and put tea bags and other stuff in, very hard to scan though!
Alcohol Light the Path
Finally, Light the Path.  I’ve never been a big lighthouse person, but I love, love, love this set.  I loved the sentiments, I loved the simplicity of the design and the versatility of it as well.
Over the years I collected so many stamp sets from The Angel Company and some I later sold but I still have these three (and MANY more) that I still love to use.  I was with The Angel Company for 12 years and I made so many incredible friends over that time period. I can’t thank Mischelle enough for what she created with her dream, because she encouraged all of us to share what we loved with others.
Now that you’re done please join me in checking out the blogs of fellow Angels taking part in this hop!

  2. I don't know how I missed commenting the first time around but I love that lighthouse set, too!!!

    Sadly, when they used to retire sets, I used to sell them thinking I couldn't use them anymore. The last few years, I kept the ones I really liked. I wish I had some of those older ones back, now.

    It just dawned on me, I can use ALL of them now!!!

    HUGS,
    Char
