For Unto You...


I've had this "Away in the Manger" image from Deedee's Digis for awhile now and hadn't made a card with it yet, but it was the perfect one for the Taylored Expressions sketch for this week. I don't round my corners that often, but it seemed to add perfect softness for this card. Even the colors were soft and sweet. I was even able to pull out my Spellbinders Create a Flake One dies and my SU snowflake punch... and I realized that I'm out of pearls!!

Other than the TE sketch challenge, I made this for the Creative Inspirations Challenge Operation Write Home challenge at MelJen's to make a monochromatic card. I have a whole box of cards ready to go to Operation Write Home... I just need to get some envelopes, and I haven't set aside the $$ to do it yet. If you're not familiar with OWH, be sure to check out the post at MelJens. It's a great way to support your troops!!

Well, I'm off to pick up my ds from work. Have a happy Saturday!

Blessings,

Tricia

Love the cards and the X stitch. I really enjoy being able to go from one craft to another - so great that we are made in His image, and He shared His cretive spark with us! I get such a buzz from seeing all the beautiful things people make - amazing!
