Here We Come A Caroling Blog Hop

For JUSTWORDZ DT post click HERE.

Good Morning and welcome to the "Here We Come A Caroling" blog hop.  I hope you are ready to see some amazing creations inspired by Christmas carols and songs.  If you have come from Janis' blog you are in the right spot.  If you have just come to visit my blog today. you may want to go back to the start at The Scrapbooking Queen's blog to see all of the great projects from these ladies.

The song that inspired my card today is "Away in a Manger", a song I learned as a young child in Sunday School and which is still one of my very favourite Christmas carols.  It was first published in 1885 in Philadelphia edited by James R. Murray set to a tune called "St. Kilda"  Listen to the words of the song while the children sing it



And now my card:



The stamp sets I used were "O Holy Night Nativity Set" and "Nativity Sentiments Set" all by Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps.  The image is stamped with Momento black ink and coloured with my Copics.  All card stock is Bazzill and the brown patterned paper is a scrap from Creative Memories.  Button and twine from my stash. 

Thanks for coming by to visit today.  Your next stop is Maria's blog.  The line up appears at the end of this post if you get lost along the way.

Have a wonderful weekend.

{{{{{HUGS}}}}}, Heather
