Hello Friends!! I hope all is well!!  We, in our household, have been extremely busy preparing for a craft show we have a booth at next week.  It is crunch time to get it all done.  We have been painting from dawn to dusk (when we are not at work or doing schoolwork).  I wake up each morning to a choir of snowmen staring at me since we have them stored in a variety of rooms where our darling Zoe (cat) can not chew on the greenery.

Today I would like to share a fun little gift box I created which was inspired by today's ODBDSLC263.  I was inspired by the white sparkly ornaments, all the greenery, and the candles on the mantle.

It was created using the Windowsill Candles dies as well as the Lovely Leaves.  This is a candy box or small gift box I have created. The background is embossed.  The candles were cut from glitter cardstock.  The flames were colored with copics.  The little leaves from the Windowsill Candle were die cut and then layered for dimension to complete the greenery.

It brings so much joy to me to create for Christmas as I think of the gift of His Son and the comfort it gives me.  In light of the recent terrorism, there is no greater comfort than His Grace.

While we would like to change all that is happening, God is still in control!!!  What a comfort to rest in Him in times of Turmoil!!  Today I am praying for my dear friend Grace who begins here treatments to rid her body of cancer.  God is in Control and I know He is with her even when I cannot be.

II Chronicles 20:6 “O Lord, God of our fathers, are you not God in heaven? You rule over all the kingdoms of the nations. In your hand are power and might, so that none is able to withstand you.”

Here is a photo of the dies used:

Chris, your little box is so cute! I love the windowsill candles. I still have yet to use them. I love how you did everything all glittery and added the gold in there too. What a nice gift to give someone! Beautiful!

Oh, Chris, this is a beautiful and lovely gift box, and I love the dies you've used for it! Wow, you are so amazingly creative! Praying, even now, that you, Scott, and the girls will have a wonderful time at the craft show and that God would bless your efforts (as it's been a LOT of work and time). Praying also that you will finish well and get some rest tonight and tomorrow...a Sabbath day of rest! Hugs, sweet friend! I love you!
