Hi All!! I hope everyone is ready for the holidays.  I am still scurrying around trying to finish up the Christmas preparations.  I thank God for my time in Church and all the wonderful Christmas activities that help me to reflect on the Savior's birth.  It is so easy to get caught up in the holiday traditions and leave the true meaning of Christmas on the back burner.  Thanks be to God for the best Christmas present ever...His Son.

Today I want to share a card I made as a Thank you for some dear people in my life who have blessed us with their Christmas love.

I made this card for Friday's F4148 Simply Thank You and this week's Our Daily Bread Designs Shining the Light challenge which is to use snowflakes. I used the stamp sets Small Snowflake Background ,Sparkling Snowflakes , and Mini Tags 2 Stamp sets from Our Daily Bread Designs. The snowflakes are cut out with the Customized Snowflake die only available at ODBD. The "thank you" sentiment and frame around it were cut out with the Ribbon Tag Trio Three dies from Spellbinders. 

The images were stamped in Night of Navy craft ink and embossed in Kaleidoscope Glittery Embossing powder.

I hope this creation, has somehow inspired you.

Thanks for stopping by!! I treasure all my viewers/blogging friends and their comments.

Have a blessed Day!!!

hugs and blessings,

Hi dearest Chris! ❤
Oh sweetie! You're soooo right! It is way to easy to get caught up in preparations and gifts and not even reflecting on as to why we are celebrating at all. Thank you for reminding me to say my prayers too ;)

Your card is stunning, love the blue nuances and the lovely sentiment :)

Merry Christmas!
