Happy Sunday Everyone!!  Are you enjoying the holiday preparations?  I made some headway over the weekend...but still have lots to do.  Today is our Sunday school and I am so excited to watch the girls and the other children perform and celebrate the nativity and the true reason for Christmas.  And....as the Sunday School Superintendent, that will be one more accomplishment behind me that I can check off. Woo hoo!!

Anywho...enough about my life...on to today's Stampin Sisters in Christ challenge.  Today's hostess is the sweet and talented Peggysue.

Peggysue chose the verse:
Micah 5:2 "But you, Bethlehem Ephrathah, Though you are little among the thousands of Judah, Yet out of you shall come forth to Me the One to be Ruler in Israel, whose goings forth are from of old, from everlasting."

At this Christmas season are you reflecting on the true gift.  The gift of God's son....a baby...being sent to save us.  What greater gift is there than that!!  How amazing that God will use a little babe born in  humble stable to be our King and Saviour!! Thanks be to God for this GIFT!!  In the busyness of the holiday don't forget to reflect on the greatest gift of all and the true meaning of Christmas!


Challenge:  Create a card using inchies!


 For this weeks challenge to use inchies...I decided to go easy peasy or CAS...like many of you I am uber busy and do not have a lot of time to spend on creations.  Funny thing is...I love how it turned out and I hope you do to.


For my creation I used inchie circles and the head of the Whimsy Cozy Little Snowman  designed by Meljen's.  The snowflakes are from the SU Bundle Up.  The sentiment is from Blessed Christmas from Our Daily Bread Designs.  I used the Scalloped Frame die from Spellbinders for the border. And Ski slope paper for the dp.

 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 Our Daily Bread designs.
The prize is a $15.00 Gift Certificate!

Hi there

I am thrilled you have joined in my "Free and Easy" theme at Allsorts this fortnight and confess to being astounded by the huge response this weekend.

I usually like to visit every entry and say a few words about their creations, but the sheer volume so far along with the Christmas preparations we all have to juggle means this is a "copied and pasted" message, for which I apologise.

Wishing you a very Happy Christmas and wonderful holiday time.
