O Holy Night

Happy Monday, peeps!  Hope you had a great weekend!  At least the sun was shining yesterday here in Pennsylvania!  Not sure about tomorrow, though!  Anyway, I had a wee little bit of stamping time yesterday afternoon and made a Christmas card!  It used the CAS(E) This Sketch sketch and the musical theme from the Jingle Belles:

I recently got this pretty stamp set from CTMH called Prince of Peace; I stamped it with Memento Black ink, diecut it with a stitched circle die and matted it with some silver foil:

I added a horizontal panel of Merry Music DSP from the holiday catalog and another little mat of the foil.  I added a few extra foil stars, and filled in some of the stars on the stamped image with a Zig Painty in silver:

Easy peasy! 

I thought I would share some pictures from a little work project we did on Saturday at our church; we have a fairly large sanctuary with ceilings that are over 20' high.  There are five chandeliers; a large one in the center with sixteen lights, and four smaller ones with twelve lights each. Every year or so, we take them down, wash the globes and replace the bulbs.  Here is John (probably the shortest man in the congregation) on a wooden platform and a 10' ladder, taking down the globes from the center chandelier and putting them in boxes so we can take them downstairs to the kitchen to be washed. Not for the faint of heart!

He finally let Ken (the tallest man in the congregation) take down the smaller ones.  We had a couple young men hold the ladders and give moral support!  Glad it's done for another year!

Have a wonderful day and be blessed!

CASEing!!! I love it, especially the one star that stands out among all the others. Your sanctuary is almost like one we visited on our Civil War trip years ago...beautiful. Yes, my heart would have been in my throat watching that project!

O Holy night, and Cow!! I'm betting there were a few prayers said by those holding the ladders, LeAnne!
A beautiful Christmas card!

Those stars are so perfect with that sentiment and so is that DSP! That looks like a pretty precarious job in that beautiful sanctuary!

Doris said...

Your church looks just like the PCA church we used to attend, except that our chandelier could be lowered for maintenance. Beautiful card!
