Happy Tuesday Friends!! I hope all are doing well.  Soon it will be Thanksgiving!!  I can't believe it is only 2 days away.  Our family is getting together with family we have in Virginia.  I am so thankful to have family near by.  While I miss my parents tremendously I am so thankful for my sister and brother in law and their family and my Aunt and Uncle who have become like parents to me.  What a blessing!!  With Thanksgiving just around the corner, Christmas is also on it's way.  I am not near ready!!

I think Christmas is such a beautiful time of year not only because we Celebrate Christ's birth but because the ornaments and decorations are just so elegant and beautiful. With that in mind, I wanted to capture that elegance in today's card.  I am sharing this card for this week's Shining the Light challenge at Our Daily Bread Designs.

Hi there Chris, lovely to hear from you again. I really adore your gorgeous card, love the gold accents and that gorgeous lace and embossing. Your lovely inspirational verse caught my eye, just what I needed to read today:( My son is trying desperately to get into America to start his golfing career but its not easy getting a visa unfortunately. Please keep him in your prayers. I am glad to hear you have family near and hope you have a nice celebration. Hugs

Chris, this is stunning to say the least. Gold on off-white is always so elegant. I love the little gold beads on your holly leaves, and your sheer bow adds the perfect touch. Beautiful card.

Hope you and your family have a Happy Thanksgiving :)
