And what does the Lord require of you but to do justly, and to love kindness
and mercy, and to humble yourself and walk humbly with your God? (Micah 6:8)

Jesus is the Reason

Hello, friends!  I Hope all those in the U.S. had a wonderful Thanksgiving.  Now that the count down to Christmas can begin in earnest, it's important to remember the reason we celebrate Christmas in the first place.  I have just a quick card to illustrate the real reason for the season.

Creative Nugget:  All papers stamps and dies used to create this Christmas card are from Our Daily Bread Designs.  Papers from the Christmas 2013 Collection were used to create the background for The Babe image that was colored with Copic Markers.  Each paper layer was cut with Pierced Rectangles Dies and matted with black card stock.  The new Jesus Loves You Stamp & Die Duo was used to create the sentiment and the star.  A gold glitter pen and Wink of Stella were used to add some shimmer and finish the card.

This card will be submitted for the following challenges:

Word Art Wednesday Challenge Week #258 - Anything Goes
Addicted to Stamps and More Challenge #221 - Anything Goes
Try it on Tuesday - Layer it Up
Time Out Challenges # 71 - Christmas with an Optional Twist of Glitter/Shimmer

Thanks so much for joining me today...have a wonderful weekend!

Hugs,
Cathymac
