Hello Friends!! Today I am popping in to share this week's Shining the light challenge at our Daily Bread Designs.  This week's challenge is get ready for Christmas...Christmas will be here before you know it. 

I just love Christmas with the joy that the gospel message brings of that Christ was born as a baby ....What a gift Christmas and Easter bring.  As lowly and sinful as we are...He came for us...just like the little drummer boy...what can he give Him as poor as he is.  None of us have anything to give...that is why Christ's birth and death is Grace.  Thank you Jesus!  

Here is my creation using the Little Drummer Boy, O little town of Bethlehem, Holly Wreath and Fancy ornaments Dies and  Recipe and Tag dies (Customized dies for ODBD made by Spellbinders).

Hi Chris!
I just prayed for you (and your family) as I stopped by. God often speaks to my heart and asks that I pray for people, and I know that you will give Him the thanks and praise for it.
Your card is absolutely adorable. I saw this stamp earlier in the week. Grace entered a card using it, and I immediately fell in love with it. You've done an amazing job with it as well, and now I'm even more in love with it. Thanks so much for stopping by to share in our challenge. I'm always SO grateful to have you share, and so blessed when I see your wonderful cards. I hope you're having a blessed week, and that you will stop by to share again soon.
God's blessings to you!
