Silent Night, Holy Night - Stille Nacht

I made this card and the whole time I was remembering one of our Christmas in Germany where my family on Christmas Eve visited the little church, St. Nicholas Church in the small village of Oberndorf, Austria. On December 24, 1818 the Christmas hymn Silent Night was sung in this church for the first time. And now this song is sung in 135 different languages and has over 200 different versions.

This beautiful stamp reminds me so much of the little church where Silent Night was sung for the first time. And all the wonderful memories of those snowy, cold Christmas that we spent in the beautiful country of Germany.

So friends, please allow me to present my card of St. Nicholas Church....


Silent Night - Stille Nacht

3 cards...yahoo I had so much fun




I made 3 cards today but have to admit that I colored the images last night so it was just a matter of putting them together

The butterfly is a get well card for my friend that just had knee replacement.... hopefully it will brighten her day..... the DP is a small piece from a paper in my Cosmo Cricket Nutmeg collection that I won... I used another little piece on my next card too....

The owl card is from M&M Designz ..... I colored all of my images with my copics..... you must go to Digital-Ink Co and look at all the digital images and go especially to M&M Designz because her images are different and a really good price....

The third card the image is from Mo's Digital Pencil and this image is a special one because in buying it you help this situation "
My friend Jak Heath had a terrible tragedy in her extended family recently. They lost sweet little 16 month Layton to meningitis. In honor of him, and to help others, Jak is holding a Meningitis Search 4 a Vaccine Campaign.

With a donation of £4.00 (that's just short of $6 US) you will receive my stamp illustration "Out There" which was created for this campaign, as well as an adorable "Little Soldier" snowman digital stamp by the talented Jim Harker.
