Let us not give up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but let us encourage one another - and all the more as you see the Day approaching. (Hebrews 10:25 NIV)

Challenge #66...BAUBLES & BELLS

Welcome to Twist of Faith, where we share card creations with scripture, or uplifting verse and quotes! We feel so blessed that you've taken the time to stop by for a visit here today.  We have a new challenge starting today, as we do every Tuesday.  But, before we share the details of our new challenge, first let us congratulate our Top 3 and our Random Winner from our last challenge..."Three Color Combo".  As always, the submissions were amazing and we would like to thank everyone who shared their creativity!

Here are the Top 3 (in no particular order)...
#2 - Cindy

#9 - Marsha

And #5 - DebR...who is also our random prize winner

Congratulations Deb! Please email Zella at russnzella@yahoo.com, and she will arrange for your prize from our sponsor last week, Stamp Art Designs by Kathryne!

Now onto our new challenge!
Since Christmas is fast approaching, we thought it would be fun to do a little Christmas challenge... 

This week's #63 challenge theme is:

Baubles & Bells

Now, before we take a look at the awesome inspiration the Design Team has come up with for you this week, we would like to share a scripture verse with you!

"She will bear a son, and you shall call his name Jesus, for he will save his people from their sins"
Matthew 1:21

We are excited to once again be sponsored by Digi Darla Designs...
who have generously offered one lucky winner 5 digis of their choice!  How awesome is that?
Here's some information about this weeks sponsor...

"Emilea and I both enjoy creating and when the idea of creating digital stamps came up, it sounded like the most wonderful way to earn ever! There was only one problem! We are both shy and dislike the center of attention! As a way of "hiding behind the scenes" and avoiding having one spokeswoman, Digi Darla was born!  Working with Emilea on this project has been a wonderful blessing and has stretched both of us. Emilea is a busy teen with her passion for art and training our 2 horses, piano and violin lessons, and squeezing in high school classes somewhere in between! She is also the oldest daughter in a family of 11!"

Before we take a look at what the design team has created, we have one last reminder...
Your creation should also include a scripture, uplifting verse or positive words/quote that will suit your creation and our theme!

Before we show you the Design Team creations, we want to take a moment and welcome our newest Design Team member.  Welcome SARAH!  We're so excited to have you on board as part of the team!!!

Here's your inspiration for this week...

Barb using Cat Christmas

 Princess using Christmas Bells & Garland

Sarah using Christmas Bell

 Tracey using "Christmas Bells and Garland"

Vickie using Christmas Bell

Zella using "Christmas Bells" and "Because You Mean So Much"

Doesn't that just feel like Christmas is around the corner?  Makes me want to break out in song singing "C'mon Ring Those Bells...Light the Christmas Tree...Jesus is the King.. Born for You and Me".  After all, isn't that the real reason for the season?  The lights, the baubles, the bells are all beautiful...but don't let them take over your Christmas this year!  Remember to set aside time to focus on the real reason of this joyous time...a Savior came down to earth...He is a gift to all of us!  If you have not received this precious gift, and do not have the Lord in your life please know that this gift is available today!  He is waiting for you with open arms and wants to have a relationship with you!

I hope we have been able to inspire you to create one last Christmas card...or maybe you're just starting with your cards and needed ideas!  Whichever it may be, we hope you'll share your creativity with us this week!

Should our Linky Tool fail us, share your creation through the comments section, with a direct link to your blog post.  Have a blessed week!
