Away in a Manger

Did you know? Have you heard? Fresh Brewed Designs hosts a challenge every Friday on Paper Craft Planet! Isn't that great?!?!? This is the third week and oh my! There's even a prize to be won by one lucky crafter! So rush on over and check out the details here! Play along! It's going to be fun!!!

Theme: Bling It On!

All you have to do is create a new card this week using a Fresh Brewed Designs and BLING. As much or as little as YOUR HEART desires.

This time of year, BLING is easy and oh-so seasonal!!!

Here's my card (with BLING - glittery stars and straw, and sparkly designer paper):

Seeing this Fresh Brewed Designs image makes me want to sing... or at least hum a tune!

♪♫♫♪ Away in a manger,
No crib for His bed
The little Lord Jesus
Laid down His sweet head

The stars in the sky
Looked down where He lay
The little Lord Jesus
Asleep on the hay ♫♪♫♪♪

Jesus IS the reason for this wonderful Season we are enjoying!

Let's celebrate the birth of our Lord and King!

Image: Fresh Brewed Designs
Ink: Copic markers
Cardstock: Stampin' UP! Metallic Gold and Orchid Opulence
Designer Paper: from my scrap file
Embellishments: Scattered Straw Distressed Stickles, Yellow Stickles, and Studio Basics Glitter Star Brads

Thanks to Heather's gentle nudge, I've now entered this card in the Reason for the Season Challenge on Catherine's blog. (Thank you, Heather! I ♥ you!)

Oh Jeanette! This is stunning!!! How beautiful and sparkly and so full of love this card is. And that you added the song.... we often think of singing these as children and do not take the time to think of the words we are singing. Thank you for the reminder and for spreading Christs love through your life and blog.

Be sure to check out the challenge for the Jesus is the Reason blog hop. You can add your card there and link it to Catherine's post for a chance to win her blog candy. I know things were crazy for you not to be able to hop for the three days ~ but you can still add this beautiful creation to the link by midnight EST on December 8th.

Glad you could join the celebration, Jeanette. Obviously, I'm a fan of a gold color scheme and Heather's awesome image. The purple is a perfect touch!
