Faery Ink December Facebook Challenge "Gift" using Gabbie and Gibran O Holy Night Digital Stamp

Hey there everyone!! Are you ready for another fun monthly challenge in the Faery Ink Facebook Group? This month the theme is "Gift" interpret it how you wish!! Whether you choose to make a gift tag, use an image with a gift, create a gift bag, whatever your mind thinks up!! And it does not have to be a Christmas Gift either!! How fun is that!! So wide open with so many possibilities!!
For my project I chose to make a Christmas card.. 'Tis the Season after all!! But I did not do a gift in the traditional sense either... wanna see?
I started with Gabbie and Gibran O Holy Night. I love how this image projects the story of the First Christmas complete with Star of Bethlehem in a modern beautiful way! I am not a religious person but I have a lot of faith and for me this gift is still the most important Christmas Gift ever given.  

I found this beautiful papers a few weeks ago while in the city doing alittle shopping and knew that it was absolutely perfect for this image. Its Photo Play- Born this day and I totally love it!
The sentiment is CTMH Card Chatter- Christmas Holiday. And the little wise men down there are cut for the CTMH Artfully Sent cricut cartridge.
This card was not east for me to put together. Not being a religious person how to embellish it was tricky for me! Ask Amanda we chatted all morning as I did it!! LOL But I do think it turned out so lovely and I hope it gives you some inspiration for your "Gift" project and please do come share it with us in the Faery Ink Facebook Group!!

Thanks so much for popping in today!!

Faery Ink- Bella Vintage Xmas Wreath; Vintage Christmas Card

You guys I cannot wait to show you the adorable new Bella- Vintage Xmas Wreath!! I was so excited to see her because for some reason this year I am totally digging the vintage theme!! Maybe its the beautiful papers I found a few weeks or my personal desire to go back to sweet simple Christmas' devoid of family drama! But whatever it is I am loving vintage this year and this image totally fit my mood!!


Isn't she just the sweetest thing ever? I totally love the big ol' christmas tree and the church in the background!! It makes me feel like we are watching a scene from one of those really good old Christmas movies... someone help me out with a name here!! LOL I just had so much fun coloring her up and Bella and her fur muff just totally helped put alittle spirit back in my Christmas!


I thought you all might like a little closer look at the details here!! Candy canes and holly and pine cones! Its perfection!!!


Now I hope these last few pics help you see the shimmer in all the snow there!! I used a shimmer paint pen to do all the snowflakes and the snow sitting on the tree there.


I do hope you all love this image as much as I do and that she puts a little love back in your heart like she did mine!! She is available in the Faery Ink Shop now so pop on over and grab her and then PLEASE come share with us! I'm dying to see what everyone else does with this beautiful Bella- Vintage Xmas Wreath!!
