Hello Friends!! I can't believe a week has past since my last post.  Man, does time fly.  Each year I say I am going to enjoy Christmas for it's true meaning of Christmas and each year I get sucked into the busyness of the season.  Sometimes we are our own worst enemies!!!

Seriously, I am enjoying all the cantatas and Christmas festivities at church, but life sure has been crazy.

Today I am popping in to share a card I created for the Shining the Light challenge at Our Daily Bread Designs!!

This week's challenge is: NOEL Word Play (use items beginning with each letter in noel to create your card or project) eg. N- notions, nestabilities, negative O- oval or circle shape, olive, old E- embossing, embellishments, eggplant (color), envelope L-Lace, layered, letterpress

For my creation, I used the Sing For Joy and Christmas Ornaments stamp sets from Our Daily Bread Designs as well as the Our Daily Bread Designs 2013 Christmas Paper Collection!!

N- Nestabilities; O-Oval; E-Embossing; L-Layering

Dies Used: Spellbinders Floral Ovals, Classic Ovals, Ribbon Banners, Resplendent Rectangles
Accessories: Provocraft Soft Swirls embossing folder, Black May Arts ribbon, Copics

Here is a sneak peek of a matching treat box I created which matches this card for this months Dirty Dozen Gallery.  You can see the entire photo here.
