SSCC #18 ~ Luke 1:26-32






Happy Sunday! I hope you've had a marvelous Sunday -- thinking of you all, my Northern friends, as you battle the tons of snow you've had this weekend! I send to you my sunniest, warmest and heartfelt hugs!

This week at the SSCC, hostess Kathy shared with us the wonderful scripture of Luke 1:26-32 as it tells the story of Joseph and Mary and the birth of Jesus. This week my son and I have been reading his little book of bible stories so he'd fully understand the play he is in at preschool - he was one of the 3 wisemen that came to visit baby Jesus, the newborn King. He was so excited to have a "big boy" part! (yes, I cried!!) And so this was an especially joyfully challenge for me to play in this week, both in the lovely layout and scripture.

The challenge: With Christmas being this week and all the hustle and bustle of last minute baking and shopping, my challenge for you is to simply make a card using the sketch provided below. Good luck!! And Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!






I went with Inky Antics Baby Jesus in the manger and this is truly one of my favorite stamp sets :) It is a little fun and whimsically drawn but at the same time sends us a powerful message! I showcased the image around some new paper I found at the LSS from Bo Bunny - a beautiful holiday line! Here is my card, and the sketch below. The sentiment is from my City of David SU! set, and reads "Christmas Blessings to you and yours." (** Tomorrow, update with better lighted photo - so please check back!) TFL and may this week be a wonderful one for you all - stay safe and be blessed!
