Digital Tuesday Challenge-Christmas Song

Happy Tuesday! It's time for another wonderful Digital Tuesday Challenge! This week our lovely Lorraine has chosen a beautiful theme, Christmas Song/Psalm! I used Michelle Perkett's Angel of Hope for my interpretation of Glory to God in the Highest!

I found a huge stash of old sheets of music in the attic and put it to use! I colored with Copics and pencils, there's distressing inks, gold Encore ink and antique gold embossing powder! I used one of my crumbled flowers with some punched greens! This is an "Encourage" card, so I included an appropriate Psalm!
I really like doing shabby chic! I hope you have the opportunity to play along with us this week at Digital Tuesday! Check out all the wonderful inspiration from my DT sistahs!
Here are the challenges...

Digital Tuesday Challenge~Christmas Song/Psalm.
Michelle Perkett's PCP challenge~sketch, image.
Stampin Sister's in Christ~praying image.
All Sorts chall~purple.
Cupcake Craft Chall~Christmas carol.
Crafty Creations~lace, distressing.
Crafty Cardmakers~alternative Christmas....not a traditional Christmas image or colors.


Next I want to tell you about two lovely ladies!
Lori from My Comfort Cottage and Carol from Bills Favorite Stamper! They both received this wonderful award because they have awesome blogs filled with inspiration and heart! ...and both are sweethearts, of course!!!!
I am honored to accept this award from each of them and with a grateful heart say, "Thank You very much!" Yet another reason I love this hobby, everyone is so supportive and encouraging! Big Hugs!!!!

One last thing! Thank you to all who played along in my little guessing game with The Stamping Boutique's Reading Kayla image/card! The book Kayla was reading was the classic A Wrinkle in Time by Madeleine L'Engle! I've read it many times aloud to my family and the kids have reread it themselves as they've grown! So, taking the correct answers and doing that Random thingy, the winner is PATTI J!!!! Please email me your snail mail, Patti and I'll send you a little goodie bag!!!
Have a super day! Abundant Blessings to all who read here!
