His Presence

Merry Christmas!  If I offend you for saying that, I am not sorry.  You can greet me back with Happy Holidays or something else, and that's something I will respect.  Christmas is celebrated by Christians around the world, the same way as the Jews celebrate Hannukah, the Chinese with their Kung Hei Fat Choi and the Muslims have their Ramadan.  Every country, race, ethnic group, or religion have different holidays and events they celebrate in their own ways.  Celebrations that are not recognized and/or practiced by a lot of other countries, races, ethnic groups or religions.  We should just accept and respect that.

Anyway, here's the last batch of cards I made this season, using the Christmas Tree embossing folder by Darice.  I embossed on metallic cardstock, then sanded the raised image.  For final touches, I added bling.

When I saw "His Presence" single sentiment stamp from Unity, I didn't have second thoughts to get it.  And I made sure to use them in this year's Christmas cards.

Materials used:
cardstock/dp:  Paper Reflections, DCWV, leftovers
image/sentiment:  Unity
ink:  Stampin' Up
tools:  Tim Holtz paper distresser, Stampin' Up, EK Success
embellishments:  bling
adhesive:  Scotch, Glue Dots, mounting tape

Again, Merry Christmas... time to spend time with family and to reflect and be thankful for all the blessings we receive.

'Til next blog!
