Hark The Herald Angels Sing


Hi peeps!  A little late today---I have a Christmas card for you using the Merry Monday challenge of a favorite Christmas verse as well as the CAS Christmas Card challenge, to use an ornament:


I pulled out an old Waltzingmouse stamp set, I am not even sure what it's called--maybe Stitched Christmas?--and stamped it on some patterned paper in Early Espresso, fussy-cut it out, then added a nativity die and a sentiment from Papertrey:


I popped up the nativity scene against the palm trees, then "hung" it on some Christmas Pines pine branches with some Tranquil Tide ribbon:


and stamped the pine branches again in the lower corner behind the sentiment:


I hope this is CAS enough!  I sure love these challenge themes!  Thanks for popping in today!

I forgot to post this before-the-bus "impromptu" stamping session...Cassidy made her teacher an Easter card:



and yes, there was snow on the ground...thankfully, it's all gone, but it's still way too cold for April!  Enjoy your day and be blessed!

Beautiful card, LeAnne. Clever way to combine the challenges. Love the colours. The ribbon is a great way to connect the ornament to the pine branch. Thank you for joining us at CAS Christmas Ornament challenge. x

Love that Nativity die cut with the palm trees, LeAnne! It's so pretty on the patterned paper with the stitching around it! Pretty pine branches on top and bottom! Thanks for sharing with us at CAS Christmas! Cassidy did a great job on her Easter card! Hope that was the last of the snow for you and you'll be enjoying warm weather real soon!

I love that you popped up the Nativity die-cut on the ornament, LeAnne! Adding the pine branches in the lower corner balanced the layout so well. Thank you so much for sharing with us at CAS Christmas! Hideko xx
p.s. Cassidy's smile is as cute as her card!

Love the clean and fresh take on Christmas - a beautiful sentiment too! Love the concentration on Cassidy’s face as she is creating - I hope her teacher loved the thoughtful card.
