Happy Sunday Everyone!! I hope you are all having a good weekend!!  I know I am...but time is just getting away with me.  I totally forgot to write up this post on Sat. Evening and I sure don't want to get up at 5:00 to have this posted at this will be another short one...

It is time for another Stampin Sisters in Christ challenge.  This week the challenge is brought to us by our blessed, dear and talented Rebecca.

Becky chose the verse:
Isaiah 1:18 Come now and let us reason together," Says the Lord, though your sins are like scarlet, they shall be as white as snow, though they are red like crimson, they shall be as wool.

Have ever stopped to think about the Christmas colors and why the traditional Christmas colors are red and green.  The red stands for the blood He would shed after He was born as a babe and in God's timing that He would die for us to take away our sin.  The green stands for everlasting life...the hope God gives that if we believe in Him, our sins will be washed away and we will have eternal life.  Christmas is all about His hope and the babe God gave to us!!  What a gift!!

Becky is challenging us to use white with just a splash of red on our creation.
Here is my take on the challenge using the Ornaments set from Our Daily Bread Designs and the coordinating Spellbinders ornament dies.

The ribbon is new gingham I received from  Really Reasonable Ribbon.  
If you have not seen Bonnie's large selection of ribbons, you really should.  She has just about everything...including May Arts Ribbon.

 For more inspiration, please visit my dt sisters: 

Grace, Linda, Lisa, Peggysue, Randi, Meisje, Rebecca, and Patti  

For the full devotional and challenge details please visit the Stampin Sisters in Christ Challenge.

Our sponsor this week is Clear Dollar Stamps!
The prize is a $15.00 Gift Certificate to the CDS Store! Check out all their wonderful new products! We thank them for their generosity!

This is so pretty! I love the dimensional poinsettia. Although, I have had plenty of exposure to the color coded "wordless book", (a book made of different color sheets and their meanings), I neveer thought of the colors in the context of the reason for the colors of Christmas. Thanks for giving me that to reflect upon and share with others!!
