Mojo Monday Nativity Card

My mother collects nativities of all shapes and sizes.  Consequently, when I see a nativity stamp I usually buy it.  This one was a small and inexpensive buy from Michaels.  The Brown Bag ink, CS, DP and craft border are CTMH products. 
The layout is from this morning's Mojo Monday #321 Challenge Sketch:
I am also submitting this card to the following challenges:

Now I'm off to start some Thanksgiving cleaning.  But since my 2 grandsons will be here all day tomorrow, I don't plan to get carried away today.  So maybe I'll work on the upstairs and then go to the mall.  The card store advertised a craft kit to go with the Elf on the Shelf and I'm sure Matthew would love to play with it tomorrow.  The boys' resident Elf on the Shelf is named Shoeshine (don't ask me how they came up with that name).  He returns each year to report back to Santa on their behavior.  However, thanks to Pinterest, Shoeshine's behavior has not exactly been exemplary.  He swings from the ceiling fan, has lots of fun in the pantry,  and has even been known to eat a banana.  Every day is another adventure which gets them quickly out of bed each morning.  Of course, there is also the tree pickle to find and the tree pixies, as well. 

Have a great day!

Joyce is having a 12 card CTMH Christmas workshop this evening.  I'll be posting those cards for you to see later this week.
