Hello Friends!!  December is here and Christmas is just around the corner.  Wow!!  Time Flies!!  I just love this time of year as we remember the greatest gift ever given, our Savior's birth!! I am a bit behind in making Christmas cards.  I love creating them and there is nothing like a personal touch sent to all those you care about.

Today I am popping in to share a scenic card I created for the ODBDSLC281 Reminder"Be Sentimental" Challenge for Our Daily Bread Designs Shining the Light Challenge.  I had a blast creating this Surprise Box.  It certainly does not look as busy in person as does in the picture.  I just love all the sparkle of the glitter blue and white cardstock and the shimmer of the silver metallic cardstock.

The Surprise Box itself is created using a special Surprise Box die from ODBD. The snowflakes are die cut and layered using the Snow Crystals dies.  The base of the box is covered with a piece of blue dp dry embossed with Darice Snowflake Swirls.

Hello Friends!!  I hope this email finds you all well!! It is hard to believe we are already more than 1/2 way through November and that in a few days it is Thanksgiving!  Christmas is just around the corner!  

Today I would like to share a card I made for this month's sketch challenge at ODBD Shining the Light. It was a very fun Christmas card to create!

ODBD Stamps Used: Christmas Ornaments

For more inspiration for the sketch challenge at ODBD or to add your creation, please visit Robin, Julie, Diana or the ODBD blog.

The image was colored with copics and then matted on an ornament cut out with the Christmas Ornaments die in gold. The background is created by embossing rather than cutting out with the Snowflake Sky.


Thank you to all who have stopped by and/or have left some love.  Your visits and comments are so appreciated.  Have a blessed Thanksgiving!

Hello Friends!! I hope this post finds you all well. 
For many in the USA this is a big day and feel the elections can make a huge difference in this country.  While I will share some words about my thoughts (not my political views!!) later in this post, I want to share a card I created for the Shining the Light Challenge at ODBD first.

This weeks challenge (ODBDSLC280) is a sketch!  For my creation I used the new Merry and Bright Stamp set, the Snow Crystals die, Christmas lights die, and the Snowflake Season Paper Collection as well as the previously released Double Stitched Rectangles, Pierced Circles and Circles dies.

You have until Sunday, November 27th to join us!!  You can link your creations here at the ODBD blog. Remember you can use any stamps for your first entry but any additional entries for  the challenge must use ODBD, Artistic Outpost or Northcoast Creations stamps)

For more inspiration, please visit my dt sisters: Diana, Robin, and Julie.

No on to my thoughts for today....

 For many in the USA we are all awaiting with baited breath over the results of today's presidential election.  It seems like the life of the USA as we know it is all resting on it's outcome.  All who rest in Him and trust in God's providence know, however, while the future of our country rests on events here on earth, God is in control and will allow what occurs.  I am sure I will have to remind myself of this tonight as I watch the news as well.

37Who is there who speaksand it comes to pass, Unless the Lord has commanded it? 38Is it not from the mouth of the Most High That both good and ill go forth?…
Lamentations 3:37, 38

Thanks so much for your visits and comments!!  I so appreciate your support and all the love shared.  Have a blessed day!

blessings,
