Day 17: Angels We Have Heard on High!

Welcome to Day 17 of the 25 Days of Christmas Crafting Showcase!  Today our Designers are sharing with you some heavenly projects! 

"Angels We Have Heard On High" is one of my favorite hymns -- every time I hear it I am reminded of this Bible passage from the second chapter of Luke, verses  8 - 14.

In that region there were shepherds living in the fields, keeping watch over their flock by night.  Then an angel of the Lord stood before them, and the glory of the Lord shone around them, and they were terrified.  But the angel said to them, ‘Do not be afraid; for see—I am bringing you good news of great joy for all the people:  to you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour, who is the Messiah, the Lord.  This will be a sign for you: you will find a child wrapped in bands of cloth and lying in a manger.’  And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host, praising God and saying, ‘Glory to God in the highest heaven, and on earth peace among those whom he favours!’

Holly created this beautiful card using the Cricut Christmas Solutions
and Storybook cartridges.  (Don't you love how she swapped the "A"
out for this gorgeous angel!)  Visit her blog for more details. 

Cricut Lite Inspired Heart cartridge to create her sweet angel card.
Please visit her blog for all the details! 

Nita and her children made these adorable Advent calendars using a
digital stamp from and the
Cricut Winter Frolic cartridge.   Check out all the details on her blog.

Evelyn used the Cricut Once Upon A Princess cartridge to create this
precious 8" x 8" scrapbook layout.  Visit her blog for more details. 

Melin designed this card using a PCW digital stamp and some pretty flowers and her EK punch.

This is a picture of a project Melin and her daughter Rebecca did for school this fall. It was of a "fictitious" angel that Rebecca had to create. Her name was Asceneca and she was an angel that guarded broken hearts. She would cry when someone had a broken heart and her tears would fall to the earth as precious stones for the broken hearted to have. This would be a special treasure for them and they were priceless stones...Ascenecyte stones.

Here is a close up of Asceneca the "Angel"

Melin created this tag for last years 25 days. I thought it was worth another look. It was the first time I had participated in a swap and was so excited to create these for about a dozen other "swappers".

Below are some cards Melin created using some more vintage angel images.
