Time Out DT #21, SSS Monday 15/12, SSS Work It Wednesday #11

Our last Time Out challenge of the year starts today … we’re being ‘Inspired By Words’ … ‘Christmas Is Love With All The Trimmings’ … how perfect they are for this time of year!  Here’s my interpretation …

Time Out DT 21, SSSM 15-12, SSSWIW 11Time OutI kept it very simple … a halo of golden light (Avery Elle Bright Days) stamped directly onto the base card … a stamped, coloured and die cut Holy Family popped up against it (with the infant Jesus highlighted with Wink of Stella) … and a gold embossed message to finish off (the image and sentiment are both SSS).

I do hope you’ll get chance to have a break in your Christmas prep schedule to take some time out and play along with us … there are plenty of ideas to inspire you over at the Time Out blog … from the wonderful DT and well as from our awesomely talented GD Shirley (yes, she of Shirley Bee and of The Bees Knees stamp range fame!).  Look forward to seeing you in the gallery!

I’m joining in at …

    Beyond stunning! I’m so in love with this color combo! Elegant and soft – the perfect way to showcase this amazing stamp/die! The halo of golden light – absolute genius dear friend! My new #1 favorite Anita card!

    Totally gorgeous, Anita! I love this serene scene and the way it highlights ‘love’ in the challenge phrase. It would also work great for the Addicted to CAS challenge where the theme is family. I hope you are feeling better and have made a full recovery in time for Christmas 🙂

  5. Shona Chambers

    So beautiful and the colouring is so pretty and soft. Anyone would be happy to receive this for Christmas I’m sure! So glad your feeling a little better and I agree with Sarah, this would be perfect for Addicted to CAS!

    This just takes my breath away, Anita. It brought to mind the song “Love Came Down at Christmas”. I love the halo and your coloring is so smooth.
