Cute Nativity Set 2 from Digi Stamp Boutique



Life has been a little busy lately but very enjoyable at the same time.  I had a surprise visit to Okinawa to visit my daughter...compliments of her.  I loved the extended sunshine and being chauffeured around the island.  Upon my return I began helping with our annual Church Festival of the Nativities for Tacoma, Washington.  It's a lovely free event for the community...held on the first weekend of December.  It is a
beautiful display of 1000 plus nativities from around the world, a live nativity, numerous musical numbers...plus paintings of the Savior's birth, life, death, resurrection and visit to the American Continent after his resurrection.  If you're in the area next year, make it part of your Christmas celebration with your family.  It is well worth it.

One of the nativities created a little bit of nostalgia for me...as this cardstock nativity below was handed out in Primary years ago to every child in the church.  My copy lasted until my third child when it was accidentally torn. We have a very talented sister, Helen Christensen, in our church who recreated this on wood for the Festival of the Nativities...making it life size...



It is 8 feet tall and approximately 30 feet wide....a stunning re-creation!


So my mind has been enjoying the beauty of Nativities of all types.  This is the reason I chose Sally-Ann's Cute Nativity Set 2 from her shop at Digi Stamp Boutique.

I enjoyed sitting down and relaxing a bit to create this card and reminiscing about the birth of the Savior and the true meaning of Christmas!

I chose to print the image in several sizes to use the sheep as my embellishments.  I have popped them in three different heights!  Hope you enjoy!


"All images/designs are created and copyright owned by Sally-Ann Hancock.  My work means the world to me - it allows my passion to draw and create, to fit with my family life too, often the inspiration for my designs.  Hope you enjoy my images as much as I enjoy creating them."

We would love to have you play along at Sweet Sketch Wednesday 2 and show us your creations!  Digi Stamp Boutique is our sponsor this week and Sally-Ann is offering a £10 voucher if you are our Grand Prize Winner at SSW2.  This is the sketch you should use! 



Have a very Merry Christmas!  Thanks for stopping by!  

Hugs,
