Happy Monday! I made a quick little card this morning with lots of sparkle! It’s for the Shabby Tea Room Challenge #92:
and used the Fall To Layout#170 from Clean & Simple:
And here it is:
I am not sure that an image this detailed works so well with Heat & Stick powder and glitter…but I added it to my stash, so in the mail it will go! Here’s the inside:
We had our Live Nativity this weekend at my church; it’s in a rural setting and we still have carriage sheds that were originally used when congregants drove their horse & buggies to church! It makes for a perfect Live Nativity background:
Some scenes from the village:
A very affectionate goat:
Too bad my camera doesn’t have a “blue-eye reduction” for goats!
Shepherds with their flocks and cold little angels:
Joseph, Mary & baby Jesus:
Paco the burro (who has been participating in the Nativity for about 20 years!):
Two of the Wise Men:
A Roman centurian (inside giving the hot chocolate ladies a hard time!):
And it ends at the cross and the empty tomb:
I only got out for a few minutes on Friday night; the other times I was inside serving up lots & lots & lots of hot chocolate and cookies to the over 1000 visitors! It was cold, clear & beautiful---a wonderful reminder of the true meaning of the season, away from the commercialism with which we are inundated daily.
