Away in a Manger is probably one of the very first Christmas Carols a child learns or recognizes. I teamed up Melissa's new digital image, Away in a Manger with the Nativity Stable from last week's release. I paper-pieced the Stable and added lots of festive glitter to the hay, stars and here and there. The background 'sheet music' is exactly that...I found it on the Internet, saved on the computer and then imported and resized before printing to use as a background. .99 musical note punch from Walmart was just perfect for this I thought.
You can find the entire set of Christmas Carol Word Art at Meljen's Designs and all the Challenge details at the Design Team and Challenge Blog.
Well, I liked the way the card turned out and hopefully it was worth it ... I did a 'dummy' and screwed up my laser printer when I accidentally got adhesive on the drum while doing the paper piecing. Now everything I print has a black smudge down one side. I hope we are able to fix it. Grrrrrrr--I hate it when I do something stupid....especially 'expensive' stupid things, but generally I do go above and beyond when I do stupid things....Just ask my Dad, I've always been an over-achiever in that department. I'm the reason he always had warranties on things around the house. Even brand-new lawn mower blades take exception to running over a concrete pipe sticking up out of the ground.
Thanks for Stopping By and May Your Days Be Merry And Bright . . .
