Silent Night


Hello and happy Friday to you!!
I'm back with this week's release over at A Day For Daisies. This stamp is called Gentle Baby and it can be found HERE in the ADFD store. Be sure to check out what my teammies have created with this beautiful release! Also, if you're looking for a BEAUTIFUL baby Jesus image this Christmas, it's 50% off today in the ADFD store!

AND AND today is also our posting day for this month's Crafters Of Faith card!
Mary Rose gave us a wonderful challenge to create a card inspired by our favorite Christmas song and this stamp couldn't have been more perfect for me!

Here is what Mary Rose said:
"For to us a child is born, to us a son is given, and the government will be on his shoulders. And he will be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace." Isaiah 9:6

Hello, Crafty sisters! Can you believe the holidays are here? I LOVE this time of year! Peppermint Mocha Lattes, twinkling lights, Hallmark Christmas movies...every good and perfect gift pointing to our Savior. My favorite part of the season? Christmas carols. I LOVE Christmas music, and I have so many CDs that I have to start listening to them in October just to fit them all in! LOL I have a few favorites that make it into heavy rotation (Amy Grant, Kathy Mattea, Point of Grace, Sara Groves), and others that are strictly instrumental and fill the house with the ambient sounds of the season (Jim Brickman, Windham Hill's Celtic Christmas, and more). This month's challenge: Make a card based on one of your favorite Christmas songs or carols. (The Bible verse I chose is often associated with Handel's Messiah, another favorite!) Make sure your card has a little twinkle to represent the light of the world. Bonus points to anyone who includes kraft and gingham in their design (just because I LOVE kraft and gingham!)

Well, Silent Night is my favorite Christmas carol--and O Holy Night is a close 2nd. I also threw in some kraft and gingham, because I too love that combo!
Be sure and check out what songs have inspired this wonderful group of faith-filled Ladies (blog list on the side bar).
