Hello, and welcome!
I'm so glad you dropped in on me because I wanted to share the theme for this week's challenge at Twist of Faith.......
In my humble opinion, there is no other kind, hahaa.......but, just so we're clear.......
Share with us the meaning of Christmas... it doesn't have to be the Nativity... many traditional Christmas things have a spiritual and Christian meaning or symbolism (even the red and white candy cane!) ... here is a link you might find interesting for Christmas Symbols and meanings.......
and remember that your creation should show your Twist of Faith!
The angel said to them... "Do not be afraid. See!
I bring you good news of great joy that is for all people."
Luke 2:10 NLV
The above scripture is a share, or for inspiration. Please use any scripture that offers a message fitting of our theme.
Our sponsor this week is Clear Dollar Stamps
Our random prize winner will receive a $15 voucher for use at the Clear Dollar Stamps store..... wonderful! We're thrilled to have Clear Dollar Stamps as a sponsor because the images are wonderful, and the sentiments fit the heart of our challenge so perfectly!
I was really chuffed to receive this gorgeous image to create my card around.....she's from the Angels Amongst Us set which has 6 simply lovely angelic figures, and 5 angelic sayings.....
I used a red card base and layered up with more red card and a lovely selection from a free Kaisercraft paper stack.....I just love the traditional colours of this stack........
I coloured up this pretty angel with my Promarkers and a touch of sparkly Mod Podge on the cute star and halo and popped her up onto foam pads.....
The stars were punched from creamy-yellow glittery card, and the holly leaves are slightly shiny heavyweight paper, punched with a really old punch that no longer has a label on it....well-worn, to say the least....hahaaa! Three little gems complete the holly sprig..........
How about this bee-a-oo-tiful freebie sentiment? Isn't it lovely? I used a Sakura sparkle pen on the star and swirls.........the scripture is from the Gospel of Luke.......apart from the prophesy of the Saviour's birth in Isaiah, this has to be my most beloved Christmas scripture.......also reminds me of the lovely Christmas carol, "Angels We have Heard On High"!
A small piece of the red card, inked, and three teeny buttons added.........these buttons are from docraft and actually have white spots on the other side, but that didn't look right on this card, so just flipped 'em over........
Forgot to get a close-up of the pretty ribbon....duh......but it's a sparkly one, twisted and stuck across the centre.....and now it's called done!
As always, our Design Team has produced some lovelies for your perusal, so go check 'em out.....and we have 2 wonderfully talented new Design Team Members who are waiting to meet you!
