Unto us a child is born

 

Yep... still finishing up Christmas cards!!  Isn't that awful!!  Oh well... it's not really my fault.  The last few days of Christmas shopping and cooking have really gotten in my way!!.  hahahaha!

Here's a sweet little image, isn't it?  This was another of my stamp choices when I won the prize from janlynn.com.  That little face peeking over the straw in the manager just tickles my soul!!  The one thing I don't especially like is that there isn't a ton of creativity we can opt for in the way of coloring.  Straw is straw and wood is wood.  I did change the  dirt circle thingie into more of a rug, just to add another color.  But still, the image is cute and can be turned into a great card.

 

I started this card a week or so ago when Pals Paper Arts when they had a color challenge to use soft suede, crushed curry and old olive (SU colors).  Well... I missed that challenge, but went ahead and used the colors on this card as they really were quite perfect for it.  I glittered up the image star, then tried to create a 'glitter beam' shining down on little Jesus.  Hmmmmm... I don't really think I achieved the intended results.  {sigh}  That's OK though.  I'm learning to let that stuff go.  You know... that stuff that doesn't go quite as expected.  Happens to me wayyyy too often!!  : )  I also used gold glimmer Blingz on the paper star, both the yellow dotted and brown layers.

 

Thanks for stopping in today!  If I don't have time to post the rest of my Christmas cards/gifts, I'll get them put up as soon as I can.  Have a wonderful, WONDERFUL Holiday Season!!
