God grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change; courage to change the things I can; and wisdom to know the difference.
Living one day at a time; Enjoying one moment at a time; Accepting hardships as the pathway to peace; Taking, as He did, this sinful world as it is, not as I would have it; Trusting that He will make all things right if I surrender to His Will; That I may be reasonably happy in this life and supremely happy with Him Forever in the next. Amen.
--Reinhold Niebuhr
"Friendship is the hardest thing in the world to explain. It's not something you learn in school. But, if you haven't learned the meaning of friendship, you really haven't learned anything."
---Muhammad Ali

"We are driven to create at this deep wordless level of the soul because we are all fashioned in the image of a God who is an Artist." - Michael Card, Scribbling in the Sand.

Came home tonight and decided I wasn't going to do anything else till I got a card made for the 7 Kids College Fund challenge.  Since it closed on Wednesday this was kind of my last chance.

This week the Challenge was to do a Christmas Card in non-Christmas Colors.

So I pulled out one of my new Tilda's and played along.  This is Sparkle Tilda from the New Sweet Dreams Christmas Collection.

I colored her in B01, Bo2 and Bo5 Her apron is RV10, RV11, RV13, Hair is E23, E50, E51 and E53  Skin is e000, e00 and e11.

The Tag is cut with Tim Holtz Ticket die for the sizzix and then stamped with distressing inks.  Paper is all Bo Bunny and the snowflakes were cut on the Expression with last years Christmas Lite Cartridge.
