Happy Sunday, peeps! Boy, winter has descended upon us here in SE PA for sure! Brrrr! We will have to bundle up for church and an open house we are attending today! Jaydee is our hostess for today's Paper Players challenge...and it is a beautiful one!
I've been fighting a wee bit of a cold and if I had felt better, I might have re-done my card; it's not bad but the idea in my head didn't quite match the execution! But time is crunched so I am "letting it go", as the song from Frozen reminds me! Here we go:
I won a gift certificate from Sugar Pea Designs and the first thing that jumped in my cart was this beautiful Bethlehem scene die! I cut it out from some (retired) Brushed Silver cardstock and mounted it on a white base that was stamped with the stars from Christmas Pines and gold-embossed with a sentiment from Papertrey's O Holy Night:
The die also has this sweet little star, so I cut it from some Brushed Gold cardstock, but I added some additional shimmer with a Wink of Stella pen.....SO pretty!
The final touch was to add some gold twine at the bottom!
I hope you'll find time in your busy schedules to play with our last challenge of 2016! How can that be? It's also time to say goodbye to our Guest Designers; I personally have enjoyed creating with them immensely! Be sure to stop by the PP blog to see their final creations as well as the regular DT's creations, and give them all some love!
I bought this little wooden Nativity scene at Goodwill last year after Christmas (a great bargain) and Cassidy was excited to play with it:
She got out all her other "little people" and their accessories, and built a corral for the animals:
and now they're one big happy family:
Truly the spirit of Christmas! Enjoy your day and be blessed!
