Away in a manger

Hey, hey! I hope you had a lovely Christmas. We had a calm family day with some yummy food and good movies. Just the way we like it. <3

I know I'm a day late with this card, but I still hope you can enjoy it. 

For a long time I had been looking for a cute nativity stamp set, but none seemed right, but when saw this one from Paperbabe stamps I knew that was the one. I like that it gives you many possibilities on how to put the elements together.

On this card I created the scene with the holy family and a couple of animals. I raised different parts on foam pads to give the card some dimension. I did the colouring with polychromos. On a seperate piece of paper I stamped a sentiment (the sentiment is a stamp from Hobby Lobby) and glued it above the stamped scene. I finished the card up with two crystals.

I wish you a wonderful day and happy holidays! xx

I'd like to enter my card to the following challenges:
Paperbabe stamps: Anything goes
Pixie's crafty workshop: Challenge 418 - snippets + Christmas/New Year theme (the snippet used is that light blue piece of paper, I think it was just about a cm longer than what I used on a card)
NBUS: Challenge 33 (I've never used this nativity stamp set before)
Girlz creative: Christmas
Ally's angels: Anything goes

Happy holidays

Hello! The big day is just around the corner. Are you excited? I can't wait. Do you have any special tradition for that day? We watch Mr Bean Christmas while eating some yummy food. :) I already have this year's menu planned (well, most of it anyways). And I've already baked most of the cookies. Just one more batch to go. Do you make all the food yourself or do you prefer to buy things in the store so your don't have to worry about that and can relax?

Have you sent all your Christmas cards yet? I have and most of them were already received. Just 2 or 3 that went overseas are still on their way. But I hope those will show up before the big day too.

The card I'm about to show you has already reached its destination. Here it is ...

I was really happy with how this card turned out. I used different stamps from MFT which I fussy cut to create a scene. I did the colouring with polychromos. On the Christmas tree decorations I added some stickles, beause I wanted to make it more festive. :) I embellished the card with some lace, die cuts and a small  wooden star and a pearl. The sentiment is in Slovenian and it means "happy holidays".

Have a magical holiday season wherever you are. All the best to all of you! xx

I would like to enter my card to the following challenges:
Metuljčica ustvarja: Osmi veselo decembrski izziv: karkoli prazničnega iz potiskanega papirja
Stempelgarten: Decorate the Christmas tree
Ally's angels: Anything goes

As you like it: Favourite Christmas sentiment ("happy holidays" (or Slovenian version of that, which is "vesele praznike"), because it covers the whole holiday season, not just that one day and I know not everybody celebrates Christmas so by using the "happy holidays" sentiment I avoid offending someone)
