Daring Cardmakers: Santa's little extra helper 1

I often think that I'll do something for DCM and then time seems to disappear, but here is one for this week's extra:



Had to do a scan rather than photo with flash - why is it that colours aren't always 'true'?

JB challenge 5: a Christmas template

This is for Sue's latest template challenge on just Bex:


I tried to get a photo but the flash was making the silver look gold in places, so i resorted to a scan, but I'm afraid it's a bit blurry:

A form of play or sport. find 'game' in your space today.

Although this isn't a game in the conventional sense of the word, it is something crafty to play with:

Salt: Creation

Today is the fortnightly challenge launch on Salt. Kim chose the subject this time and this is what she said:

Joyful greetings to all of our readers! We've all been so blessed to be able to share our faith-based challenges with you and have been especially thrilled to see what you have created!


This week it's my (Kim) turn and the theme I've chosen is:


Creation

We see God's sovereignty in His creation each and every day, from the beauty of nature to the miracle of birth. God has lovingly and mercifully created all that we see, hear, smell, touch, and feel, to bring glory to Himself and to bless His children.
"For thus says the Lord,

Who created the heavens,

Who is God.

Who formed the earth and made it,

Who has established it.

Who did not create it in vain

Who formed it to be inhabited

I am the Lord and there is no other."


-Isaiah 45:18

We'd love to see what you create based on this week's theme!! Please leave a comment and link back to your blog or gallery so that we can all share in your "creation!"

Please take a look at Salt

However, God knew and understands and gives me the grace and strength to cope with life as it is and the verses I have used from Psalm 139 are very precious to me (and to my dear mum).

The background papers and tags I've used are from beblessedscrapbooking.com - appropriately called 'wonderfully made' and 'knit together' (they were crying out to be used!).

I'm afraid that I did make a mistake on my LO (I only saw it after I had rubbed on some swirls that prevented me from moving the wording) - I got the first two parts of the verse the wrong way round, but there was no way I was going to do it all again,so here it is:
