Happy Sunday all!!!

I hope you have been enjoying your weekend!!  It has been a very busy weekend decorating for Christmas, participating church events and having family over.  

Today I am popping in to share this week's Stampin Sisters in Christ Challenge.

Marilynn is our host this week!! I know you will be inspired and lifted up with her devotional as she inspires and makes me think each time I read her Sunday posts.  She has chosen the verse: Luke 2:11 For unto you is born this day in the city of David, a Savior, which is Christ the Lord.

This verse says it is the true message of Christmas.  God gave us the greatest gift of all by giving us His one and only son to come to earth as a human and make the greatest sacrifice for us all.  He later died for us all to forgive our sins.  All we need to do is Believe on Him.  As you listen to the old familiar Christmas carols and celebrate the holidays remember to thank Jesus for  the true reason for the season, our Lord's humble birth.

Marilynn challenges us to create a card or project with a birthday theme.

Here is my take on the challenge using the adorable Henry Celebration Mouse from Whiff of Joy.

I colored him with copics.  I gave him a vintage flair with distressing, embossing (soft swirls folder), stitching and faux stitching.  The leaves are created with the Cheery Lynn Fanciful Flourish.  The dp is Prima Sparkling Spring.

I hope you enjoyed my creation.

Be sure to check out  MariLynn's devotional on the SSIC Blog, as I know you'll be blessed!
