Christmas Blessings to You: Luke 2:14

A week from today is Christmas and today is Sunday which means time for a challenge based on scripture at  Stampin' Sisters in Christ! So glad you stopped by.

This week it was my turn turn to be our hostess and the verse I chose is Luke 2:14. Be sure to stop by our home page to read my devotion.

"Glory to God in the highest, and on Earth peace, good will toward men" (Luke 2:14)


This week your challenge is to make a Christmas card with a religious theme and/or image. If all of your Christmas cards are done for this year look at it as a head start for next year!   



This is my last Christmas card for this year.  I used one of my favorite stamps from ODBD. It was the first stamp set I purchased from them. I really loved the sketch by Carly and the 2 worked perfectly together. I colored the image with Copics and used a gold pen on the flames and candle holders. A little bling to finish it off.
  
Our sponsor this week is ODBD with a $15 gift card on stamps that you will love.
Be sure to stop by my SSIC design sisters (listed on the sidebar) to see what they have to share this week:

It is always great to see you, thanks for the comments!
