Wow! I can't believe that we're already in the middle of November and I'm still well behind with my Christmas cards! Ugh!! Anyways, I hope I'll be able to create more within this week.  My card for today is based on two challenges:

CAS93  a sketch inspired by ltecler and,
SSCC65 based on John 3:30 verse ("He must increase, but I must decrease.")

On SSCC65 we have 3 options on how to present our card.  One is to make a CAS card to show that I need to decrease;  two is to make a "more is more" card showing that God must increase and three is to make a simple version of a card then we'll show the more is more version. 

As I've said I chose to make the CAS card because I want others to see more of Jesus in me and less of myself. Hence, the simplicity of my card. :)  I haven't coloured for months now and it felt like first time to me while I was colouring this image from Justrite Christmas Treasures set. I actually went over the circle stamped margin while I was sponging the sky (not in purpose, of course, LOL!). And to make unnoticeable, after cutting it with Circle Nesties, I coloured the white area with my Copic marker, put some glue on it and sprinkled it generously with my MS Crystal Fine Glitter!! The dp is from Graphic 45 (from my stash) and I just adorned it with leaves from Prima Christmas mix and a pearl at the center.

Thanks for visiting once again and see you on my next post.

Have a blessed day!

Frame Cards

Happy Monday everyone!! I once again apologize for being on MIA mode for the past few weeks.  Just recently, I was down with the flu for a week and few days after my two boys got it, too. :( To make it short, they missed a week of school because of that and hubby took a week off from work to look after us. Thank God for him! :)

I was actually about to start with my Christmas cards orders when the flu thing arrived. But prior to that, I was on the finishing touches with these Christmas Frame cards that were also part of my orders.  I just did the "very final" finishing touches soon as I got well. I made 2 of each design to maximize the materials used. :)

And here's one with my DS2's photo being the model. :)

The dps are mostly from DCWV Christmas stack and the cs used were from Core'dinations cs. Embellishments were from my stash and I used different Stickles to add interest to the frame.

Thanks for visiting and for always following my blog.

God bless!
