Happy Friday, peeps! Wow, I've got a busy weekend coming up, how about you?! This is the last As You See It challenge of the year, we'll be taking a wee little break, but we'll be back in January with some fresh new challenges! To finish the year, we've got a "Fill In The Blank":
My fill-in is "The Birth of Jesus" because it really is what Christmas is all about! I am overwhelmed when I think what the Lord did for us! It really does bring me joy!
I found this paper in my Luke 2 pad by Photoplay and decided to create my card around it! So here we go:
It's hard to see, but my Bethlehem scene is diecut from Dazzling Diamonds glimmer paper; I tore off the backing of the paper before I put it through the SugarPea die, as it is intricate and the thicker paper has a tendency to rip as I try to get it out of the die. It also cuts out a star, and the DSP also had a star, so I just popped it up right on top! I stamped this beautiful sentiment from Scrapbook.com in Early Espresso using my Stamparatus to make sure I got good coverage:
The bottom portion looked a little plain, so I stamped a smaller, narrow sentiment on the same paper and diecut it with a banner die:
It all went on an Early Espresso card with a white mat on the inside for my sentiment!
So, what brings you joy for the holidays? I hope you can find time during your busy schedule to create one more card and share it with us at As You See It! Thanks for popping in today!
Okay, so I have to continue the elf story...and boy, do I feel like a dummy! After several people pointed it out to me, Cassidy was spelling "By The Way" vertically!! It must have been because I was looking at it late at night (yeah, that's it!!!)!!! Anyway, the "elf" wrote back a letter:
I noticed that Elfdon misspelled "rescue" but I guess maybe he didn't get an "A" in spelling class, LOL! And I haven't found out yet what the special gift was! Stay tuned!
Enjoy your day and be blessed!
