Some of my favorite memories of Christmas are looking at the decorations in my home, driving around neighborhoods at night and looking at all of the lights, and seeing the insides / outsides of churches decorated to celebrate the birth of Christ. Even if it is a simple little wreath, it brings a smile to my face and heart.
And singing! I just adore Christmas songs. The fun ones are cute to listen to and have the kids sing along to in the car, but to hear Oh Holy Night, or Mannheim Steamroller Carol of the Bells, or a simple and sweet tune of Silent Night! My heart leaps with joy and thanks and worship.
This week has been a hard one hearing about all of the things going on in the world, especially in Newton, Connecticut. I can not get online without crying and seeing photos of these sweet babies and their hurting families. It has been hard to get online much at all. I have spent a lot of extra time with my family. We are not buying many gifts this year, but spending as much time together as we can. That is what Christmas is about; sharing Love with all of those around us.
I have browsed through the AMAZING Christmas cards showcased
in this challenge and have a few to feature here for you.
First up is Edwina with this elegant card using a
Fresh Brewed Digital Stamp Row of Ornaments
Judy at In Search of My Creative Side
has shared this ADORABLE little bundle of sweetness with us:
and last but not least is this SWEET little creation by
Mason Jar Cards. I LOVE the look of the embossed kraft paper and
that deep red. Gorgeous!!!
I know I said I had the shop closed, but a few blogs that I am sponsoring wrote me to let me know
they can't choose their digis for upcoming challenges (DOH) so the digis are still available for you to
look at / choose from / purchase if you want.
As for our featured guests:
Please stop by the shop and choose 3 digis as your prize for being featured if you wish.
You can also snag the 'I was featured' badge for your sidebar!
Have a very blessed and beautiful day today.
