Merry Christmas 2014


Most of you will be celebrating Christmas today in one way or another.  We had our family Christmas gathering Monday, the 22nd, so today my husband and I have a relaxing (boring! LOL) day.    No, actually, it is lovely because we celebrate the birth of Jesus, the birth of a Savior and this gives us a quiet day for that without a lot of crazy distractions.  Now keep reading because I'm not going to give you a sermon.  I just want to say that this historical event is one of most important ever.  Jesus was born because He loved you and He lives today making eternal life possible.

This beautiful paper and sentiment are by Diane's Daydream DesignsUnfortunately, she is closing her store because of the VAT.  The good news is that she is having a 50% off sale through December 30.
The sentiment which is pre-colored, is cut out with a MFT circle Die-namic, as is the little ring right under the ribbon.  The other silver piece of the ornament hanger is cut out with one of the Spellbinder Shapeabilities in the Office Supply set.  I just trimmed it down to make it look like an ornament top.  The snowflakes are cut out of more of the DDD paper with a Cuttlebug die.
At Die Cut Diva's, our challenge all month has been Christmas or Snow.  Our wonderful sponsor is Dies R Us where you can find the MFT Die-namics and the Spellbinders that I used.
There are just a few more days to enter the challenge.  I hope you get a chance.
Again, Merry Christmas and if you ever have questions about the salvation, peace, and joy that Jesus can give you, I'd love to talk with you about it.  Just send me an email at mkdrain at gmail dot com.

Have a wonderful day.
