And what does the Lord require of you but to do justly, and to love kindness
and mercy, and to humble yourself and walk humbly with your God? (Micah 6:8)

Christmas Greetings

Hello friends!  The Mojo Monday sketch provided the perfect inspiration for another Christmas card.

Creative Nugget:  Love coloring this jingle bell image from the Jingle Bell Time stamp set released this month by Our Daily Bread Designs.  The pretty paper is from the Christmas Collection 2015.  Pierced Squares Dies, Layered Lacey Ovals Dies, and Ovals Dies were used to cut and matt the main image and the sentiment. Lovely Leaves die cuts and a Flower Lattice die cut were used for the accents on the sketch.

My second card was also made using stamps and dies from Our Daily Bread Designs.

Creative Nugget: The tree from the Joys of the Season stamp set was colored with Neocolor 2 Crayons and spirited with water before stamping on the card front.  The same tree and the sentiment were then stamped in Elegant Eggplant ink.  The paper behind the aperture is from the Christmas Card Collection 2016 and the dies used include the Holy Night Die, Pierced Circles Die, and a Circle Die.  A little sponging was added to create snow drifts and tiny gems add a touch of sparkle. 

These cards will be submitted for the following challenges:
Mojo Monday 473 Contest
Addicted to Stamps and More Challenge #218 - Holiday
City Crafter Challenge #336 - I See a Star
Holly Jolly Christmas Challenge #84 - Trees/Christmas Trees
Mod Squad Challenge - Go for the Gold

Thanks so much for stopping by...enjoy the beautiful weather!

Hugs,
