Happy Sunday Everyone!! I hope you have been enjoying the weekend!!  It has been a very busy weekend for our family with so much going on.  Yesterday we had a mother/daughter  Christmas craft day at church.  It was fun and quality time with my girls.

Today I am popping in to share the new Stampin Sisters in Christ challenge.  

This week's host is Lisa.

Lisa chose the verse:
Matthew 1:20-22, "But after he had considered this, an angel of the Lord appeared to him in a dream and said, 'Joseph son of David, do not be afraid to take Mary home as your wife, because what is conceived in her is from the Holy Spirit. She will give birth to a son, and you are to give him the name Jesus, because he will save his people from their sins.' All this took place to fulfill what the Lord had said through the prophet: 'The virgin will be with child and will give birth to a son, and they will call him Immanuel' which means, 'God with us.'"

This verse is what Christmas is all about.  God sending His one and only son who was perfect and without sin.  He made Him human so one day He could pay for our sins.  What a miracle!! What Grace!!!!  Can you imagine how overwhelmed Joseph and Mary must have been to know that God was using them for the biggest gift ever!!  What an awesome responsibility!!  Yet they were so humble!  God uses each one of us for His purposes.  Are you following God's plan for your life?  Are you truly thankful for the awesome gift God has given us this Christmas or are you thinking about family, presents, decorations, festivities...At this time of year it is so easy to get so bogged down with all the holiday happenings and not put the true emphasis on what is most important about the "holy-days".  Merry Christ-mas!!!!

Lisa has challenge us to:
Make a card/project depicting an angel

Here is my take on the challenge using the Ornaments 2 stamp set from Our Daily Bread Designs and the Spellbinders Holiday Tags 2 die. Since most of my Christmas stamp sets and anything with angels are packed, this challenge was a real challenge for me.  Unpacking boxes and finding this one angel charm took me much more time and mess then actually creating these tags.  I wish I had found my angel stamps...boohoo.

I truly had fun making these ornament tags.  I can't wait to make more to decorate the gifts!!  

I hope you enjoyed my creation.

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