Christmas Pageant

When I was a child, I looked forward to being in the annual Christmas pageants at church and at school.  I always got picked to be an angel and got to sing, usually Away in the Manger.  When I saw this adorable image at Phindy's Place it reminded me so much of me except that my hair was below my waist and wish as I might, I have never had curls.

The challenge this week at Phindy's Place is to use BUTTONS so I created another Christmas card and used these teeny buttons.  The colours are a little more brick red than you usually see at Christmas but I loved the papers and decided non-traditional was just fine.

This week you can use any image again but if you do use a Phindy image (and we hope you will), don't forget to enter your card twice.
