Almost there.........!

Hello, and welcome!

I've done it again........this post should have gone live, yesterday......sigh.......but I'm struggling to even know which day of the week it is....ha!  All I know is somebody has shortened the hours in each day, and has even pinched at least 3 days of the week!

Apologies to my Teamies for this late Christmas bonus for me, this year!

Twist of Faith has a timely challenge for you, this week.....


Your card creation should show Christmas...    Remember our 'twist of faith.' Your creation should also include a scripture, or quote or an uplifiting sentiment that suits this week's theme

.Here is a fitting scripture share for you...we hope it inspires you to create! But please feel free to use any scripture, quote or text that offers a message fitting  our theme...

The angel said to them, “Don’t be afraid!
I have good news for you, a message that will fill everyone with joy.
Today your Saviour, Christ the Lord, was born in David’s city.
                                                                   Luke 2:10-11

This week, our sponsor is MICHELLE PERKETT STUDIOS!

Our random prize winner will receive their choice of one of the gorgeous images showcased by our design team in this challenge post!   We are thrilled to have MPS sponsoring our challenges... because the images are so beautiful... (not just because Michelle is one of my favourite artists!)

I chose the very beautiful Noel Angel for my card.....

All the papers are from K&Co "Glad Tidings" which I won from Tracy at Dies to Die For on her Facebook page.....thanks, Tracy!

I used Spectrum Noir markers for this lovely image and wanted to give it a traditional feel, so went with the reds, greens and golds.....the twinkly stars on the side are from Crafty Magpie......

I have boxes and boxes of chipboard shapes and always forget to use 'em, so was glad to give this one a home on this Christmas card.....and what could be a more fitting sentiment for our "twist of faith"?

I stuck this matching star onto another chipboard circle for added dimension........3 pieces of chipboard on one card.....I'm on a

The stars were originally clear, but a little green Sharpie soon sorted 'em out.......

I like the way this one turned out......a beautiful image of a Christmas angel, bringing the Glad Tidings to the world!

Please take a wander over to see what our wonderful Design Team have come up with.....some have used the same image, but have a very different look to their creations......and each one a gem!

Go on......I bet you actually do need another Christmas join in the fun!
