24 June 2022 MTTCC #37 Theme is Christmas Carols

 Welcome to Becca's Heart for Creativity blog! I love singing and playing Christmas carols. I've also been a choir member of several churches through the years and singing cantatas as well as The Hallelujah Chorus were some special achievements. At 2 churches they owned handbells and it was a joy to be part of those groups. If you love caroling and singing holiday tunes then get excited because My Time To Craft Christmas challenge blog's Theme #37 is Christmas Carols. 

June 24, 2022 to July 7, 2022 is the competition time period. There are hundreds of songs to choose from. You can pick 3. Crafters can submit 3 new projects for each theme challenge. Christmas carols/song choices might be: Santa Claus Is Coming To Town, Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer, I Saw Mommy Kissing Santa Claus, Silver Bells, Little Drummer Boy, and so many more! A MTTCC blog link will be posted after my design team inspiration project. I chose to do "Away in a Manger" and "O Come All Ye Faithful".

Card #1= Away in a Manger no crib for a bed. The little Lord Jesus laid down His sweet head. The stars in the sky looked down from above....

Credits: white left-folded base card and golden harvest yellow music patterned cardstock are from Simple Stories card kit "Love Grows Here"; the angel print cardstock (music notes were added in) and the 3 stickers are from Echo Park's "Away in a Manger" collection; the teal glitter foam snowflakes started out as light blue (green marker applied to the top with a green glitter paint pen over that in order to get the teal color).

Card #2: O Come Let Us Adore Him=

Credits: Red plaid and dots patterned papers are both from The Paper Studio; the focal card is from Echo Park's Away in a Manger collection; three green crystal gems and a red glitter bow packaging tie are the embellishments.
