A Christmas Birthday Card! :o)

Happy Thursday, my friends! Well, guess what I discovered? I can actually color WHILE I listen to my music! Who knew I could do two things at once! :o) Originally I was going to paper piece it but that doesn't work with my music. If I bop instead of sway an extremity disappears, and that's just not good! lol I've had lots of fun working on this card. A nativity scene depicts what Christmas is all about for me...it is the birthday of my Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.

But the angel said to them, "Do not be afraid, I bring you good news of great joy that will be for all the people. Today in the town of David a Savior has been born to you: he is Christ the Lord. This will be a sign to you: You will find a baby wrapped in cloths and lying in a manger." Luke 2: 10-11
