My Crafters Of Faith group was put to the challenge of making a card based on our favorite carol. Mary Rose even wants a bit of sparkle added to the card.....I am not a sparkly kind of girl, but am giving it a try.
In Mary Rose's own words:
"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!)
So there's your challenge! Plug in that Christmas music and get inspired! I'm even learning some Christmas carols to play on my dulcimer.
There are so many carols....and not a bad one of the bunch; but, my favorite since I was a teen has been "Go Tell It On The Mountain." I think telling the story of Jesus' birth is truly the reason for the season!
A fun version of the song can be heard here. And here is a more traditional version.
And, here is my card!
The star stamp is from CTMH and the baby Jesus digi is from Deedee's Digis. Her work can be found here. Everything else came from my stash!
