O Holy Night

Wednesday, December 9, 2009

I'm sorry I've been so quiet around here lately.  I've had a few things to show but we're in the midst of a crazy snowstorm that has continued since Saturday night.  Needless to say, it's been hard to take pictures of my art outside with blowing snow and the crazy single digit high temperatures that we've been having.  So, I had to take some pictures indoors.

It is Wednesday and that means it's time for another challenge at Penny's challenges.  Challenges over there are now bi-weekly so hopefully that will give you more time to play.  The theme for this week is to make a Christmas project with stars. 

My card is also for this week's challenge at Cupcake Craft Challenges which is to make something Christmas related based on a song.  I love the song O Holy Night.  I think it is so gorgeous.  When I was a teenager, many moons ago, I practiced this song and played it on the piano at a church Christmas activity.  I should get the sheet music again and practice up on it.  Thinking about the music just brings a smile to my face.

Patterned Paper:  My Minds Eye

Stamps:  CTMH Christmas Melodies
Other:  MS border punch

I hope you'll head over to see what the other design team members have for you this week.  And then why don't you join us.

This is beautiful Alanna, I love the papers and the edge of the golden one makes me think of a crown.

I think winter is a good reason to take pictures indoors...though the bright white outside helps with natural lighting!

Your picture is fab without being outside.I also am inside because of the weather and am using little lights to give me brightness.Great creation with stars and I love all Christmas music.
