SALT Challenge - JESUS - THE TRUE MEANING OF CHIRSTMAS


Hi all! It was Casey's turn to set the challenge for the SALT blog this week and she chose "Jesus, the true meaning of Christamas..."

We all love celebrating Christmas because it is a time for us to stop, remember and praise God for the birth of Jesus Christ, our Lord and Saviour. HE IS the true meaning of Christmas. Not presents, not parties, not decorations, etc. JUST JESUS!!!

I created a card, whose background (unfortunately) is not that easy to see...looks like I have a bit of a shine on my photo! The background is made up of many sentiments that are expressed throughout the holidays; Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays, etc. I then added a section of a verse from Luke 2:11, which announces the birth of Christ....The real reason to celebrate! Even though Christmas has been set aside as a day to remember His birth, we are blessed to be able to recall his miraculous birth each and every day!

Pale blue paper used on the card is from Stampin' Up!. Star and brackets are chipboard covered with Basic Grey's Figgy Pudding (of course!), and red cardstock is by Bazill.

We' also love to see what you come up with too! Feel free to leave us a comment on the SALT blog so we too can share in your art!!!

What a beautiful way to give pre-eminence to Jesus at Christmas. Oo-la-la at your Eiffel Tower cards!
