Good Tidings of Great Joy

CASology Cue Word for Week 141 is “News.” I don’t know about you, but sometimes I get tired of the “news”. When I saw the cue word though, what popped into my mind was how I love goods news! Speaking of good news, I can’t imagine being in the fields outside Bethlehem when the angels announced the birth of the long-awaited Messiah, Jesus.

Now there were in the same country shepherds living out in the fields, keeping watch over their flock by night. And behold, an angel of the Lord stood before them, and the glory of the Lord shone around them, and they were greatly afraid. 10 Then the angel said to them, “Do not be afraid, for behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy which will be to all people. 11 For there is born to you this day in the city of David a Savior, who is Christ the Lord.

Here is another card that I made using one of those verses.

The angel’s news report:


I used PTI’s  Silent night stamp set for this card. I’m playing this over at CASology for their cue word: NEWS and at Merry Monday: Angels. While I don’t have an angel stamp to use, I hope that the angel’s announcement will count for the theme of this week’s challenge. I am also playing this over at Freshly Made Sketches #181 – A Sketch by Jen M.


I made 3 different versions of this card and will be playing them in various places. Look here and here for the other two.


Thanks for stopping by!

  1. I like the layout of this one the best of all the “GOOD NEWS”, the strips of paper and the black matte set is apart, but then the blue watercolor BG is Very lovely too! And the simplicity of the all white with texture is so elegant.
