O Holy Night


"O Holy Night! The stars are brightly shining. 
It is the night of the dear Saviour's birth."

 Such a gorgeous stamp and clean and simple sketch 
deserve a bit of richness and sparkle,
so I pulled out the last remaining gold paper and some gold embossing powder
along with one of October's featured stamp set, Wisemen
There are some great samples on the blog from the team members and guest designers,
please go check it out and then link up your original creation
for a chance to win!
Cristina has created the amazing sketch, and we are welcoming Tammy, Andrea and Karen!

So as promised,
I'll be back with another post at 10:58 am CST
(hah! my mother will appreciate that specific time!)
for the start of my BIG giveaway game!
Hope to see you then!
