Unto us a Child is born

Hi everyone

It's been pouring down here again today. Hope it's been a bit better where you are - although I think it's been the same over most of the country. Makes you want to hibernate, doesn't it?

I thought I'd treat myself and order a couple of these gorgeous Penny Black stamps from the Glitter Pot. How good is that shop? I ordered them on Wednesday at about half past three and the postie brought them yesterday (Thursday) and only a pound for postage. I think she's the best in the business for delivery; I've never had to wait for anything even at Christmas. They pull all the stops out.

I can enter this card for 2 challenges:

Simon Says Stamp: this is animals. As long as you've got animals somewhere on your card it's fine
Lili of the Valley: this is the sketch and a lovely sketch it was too.

My card recipe:

Image: Penny Black - Sweet Nativity
Coloured with Distress Inks
DPs: Kars Christmas Collection Scrapbook Papers
Cardstock: Coredinations
Lace: from stash
Stars: Basic Grey Holiday Chipboard, glittered with glammer dust
Gems: Kanban
Tools: Cuttlebug; Christmas stars embossing folder; Corner Punch
Platinum Stickles

I know they were very poor but I couldn't resist giving Mary and Joseph a bit of bling! I think they deserve it for producing such a beautiful baby. Isn't he devine!

Hope you like it.
