Countdown to Christmas - TMS #227

How many days until Christmas now?  Only 22!!!    I love CHRISTmas time!!  I love the carols, the decorations, the special treats, but most of all, I love knowing that Jesus came to earth to be born in a manger, so He would one day die on the cross for me!! 

Matthew 1:21 "And she shall bring forth a son, and thou shalt call his name Jesus: for he shall save his people from their sins."  Jesus is the reason for the season!!

Here is my card for this week's challenge at Tuesday Morning Sketches!    For a very traditional "red/green for Christmas" kind of girl, I made a very non-traditional card! 

My DP is Recollections "O Christmas Tree."  I colored the digi with my Spectrum Noir markers, cut it out with Spellbinders Circles and framed it with Spellbinders Lacy Circles.

Here is Melissa's wonderful sketch!!

Our sponsor for this week is Stamp Fairy!!  Why is my post titled "Countdown to Christmas"?  Because my image is the freebie that goes along with Barry Countdown to Christmas 1.  Stamp Fairy generously provided stamps for the DT, but I had this one already and when I saw the sketch, I knew it would be perfect for it!

Thanks for stopping by!  Be sure to go check out the creations from the rest of our DT...


We'd love to have you come and play along with us this week at Tuesday Morning Sketches!!

Even with the non-traditional colours, this is a fabulously traditional Christmas card! Love the layers & is that velvet ric-rac I spy? Love it :)

Fantastic card Debbie! Love the red/aqua color combo! The gems and pearls your added to the ornaments are a wonderful touch!

I've been enjoying lots of carols too - and The Messiah (my favourite music any time of year, but especially now).
