Celebrate Christmas with Emollient Fall & Frosty Mornings

Good morning dear ones, have a nice Wednesday, 

It is December 
you know what that means!

 Soon Santa Claus and his eight tiny reindeer 
will be prancing across the roof tops.
 Love this time of year!

 There is still a lot of good happening
 in the midst of all the commercialism. 

The name of Jesus is still heard by those 
who have ears to hear.
 Many will give a helping hand to those in need. 

It truly is a time to be celebrated 
 the birth of Jesus 
changed the world. 

If you know not my Lord,
 I pray you will hear his voice calling to you this season! 
It truly is a wonderful time of the year!

As I believe in Jesus,
also believe in the spirit of giving. 

The giving of love, 
of our time and resources, and of gifts to brighten the eyes of children on Christmas morning.

Believe that Santa is a  symbol of that giving during this holiday season 
 I do not believe that including the make believe into my holiday diminishes it in any way;
 so we include Santa in our celebrations.

Today I want to show you  my Christmas Card

Close - up of my card

Close image of    Gnomey Peter

really enjoyed making it!

Lots of die cuts & glitter on this one too although it doesn't show up too well!

This  creation made with a
 gorgeous stamps 


Is n't she just fab .....
I think so…..

We had decided a nice afternoon 
coffee and cake,
later the evening with a delicious meal. 

Santa Claus and angels 
 one of my favorite temples, 
which I've used for this 
side - step card . 
 This card is really nice
