SSCC #18 - Sketch

Happy Sunday!! Can you believe Christmas is almost here:) It's going to be a busy week for a lot of people! I know it will for me. Last minute shopping and baking. Welcome to another challenge week at Stampin' Sisters In Christ.

Thanks to all of you who participate in our challenges. I am honored to be the hostess for this week. So as I was thinking about the challenge, it dawned on me how busy our lives are going to be this week. So here it is...

The Challenge: is to make a card using this sketch below. That's it, simple and easy huh??

Verse: The verse I chose is from Luke 1:26-32. Now in the sixth month the angel Gabriel was sent by God to a city of Galilee named Nazareth,
to a virgin betrothed to a man whose name was Joseph, of the house of David. The virgin's name was Mary.
And having come in, the angel said to her, "Rejoice, highly favored one, the Lord is with you; blessed are you among But when she saw him, she was troubled at his saying, and considered what manner of greeting this was.
Then the angel said to her, "Do not be afraid, Mary, for you have found favor with God.
"And behold, you will conceive in your womb and bring forth a Son, and shall call His name Jesus. "He will be great, and will be called the Son of the Highest; and the Lord God will give Him the throne of His father David.

I know it's long but I wanted to pick a verse that depicted the birth of Jesus. One that goes with the upcoming Holiday.

Sponsor: Our sponsor this week is the wonderful Anne House. She is offering a 3 month subscription to AFP/SNR magazine. That's great, Thanks Anne.
Thank you so much for stopping by today. Have a safe Holiday.
Merry Christmas!!

I have been following your blog and love your coloring and shading but never read what medium you are using to color. Can you tell me what materials you use?

Your cards are great and cute as can be. I also love the verse you chose to use for this challenge.
