ODBD Bread Basket

Tuesday, November 11, 2014
Hello Friends!! I hope all is well with you all!!  Well we are already more than a week into November and winter is certainly on its way with the colder temperatures.  Soon it will be Thanksgiving and then Christmas.  With preparing for craft shows and etc I am not near ready.  

Today I would like to share a Christmas card with you today for this week's Shining the Light challenge which is to create a holiday card.

For my card I used the Sparkling Star dies, Flourished Star pattern die, Come let us adore Him stamps, His Birth and the ODBD Christmas Paper Collection 2014 for Our Daily Bread Designs. The sentiment is stamped on the Antique Labels and Border dies   layered on Majestic Labels 25 (Spellbinders). I even had fun sewing around the edges.

This sentiment is based on Matthew 2 1- 2

After Jesus was born in Bethlehem in Judea, during the time of King Herod, Magi from the east came to Jerusalem and asked, “Where is the one who has been born king of the Jews? We saw his star when it rose and have come to worship him.”

The Christmas story is one I can hear over and over again. It brings such joy and amazement.  Of course we have created different interpretations.  There is no number mentioned in the Bible how many wisemen there were or who these kings really were.  These men were said to be astrologers who studied stars and the God created a star that was different and attracted the attention of the people to let them know it was a special event.  What a special event...A Savior has been born

 I hope you have enjoyed my take on the inspiration.  Thanks for stopping by!! I hope you enjoy my creation!! For more inspiration for this challenge, please visit my dt sisters: Cheryl ScrivensDJ RantsDiana NyugenRobin ClendenningLinda Carson, and Elizabeth Whisson.
