O Holy Night

Yes, I know it's the week before Thanksgiving, when most Americans are preparing to gather with their families to feast on turkey and all the fixings while reflecting upon the many blessings in their lives. I know that it is still over a month until Christmas. I know!

BUT at our house Christmas begins early. We decorate early. We shop early (and often!) We listen to Christmas music and watch It's a Wonderful Life early. Christmas begins early at our house.

I created this card featuring a scene from the first Christmas centuries ago. It was a holy night; a night of significance. Christ was born and Christmas lives on in our hearts today.

Enjoy the season! Reflect on the holy night. Christmas is coming!

Oh this just warms my heart! Not just becuase I was blessed to receive this very card in the swap (yay me!) but becuase I am so grateful that we've met here on the SCS as stamping sistahs and also sisters in Christ and that is a true blessing! I've much to be thankful for this wonderous Holy season upon us and having you for my friend is certainly one of them! Big hugs and much love! x0x0x0
