Hello dear blogging friends! I prescheduled this post because I am with family this week, enjoying happy times and making treasured memories.... and most of all thanking God for His indescribable gift! To think that even in my rotten sinful state, GOD... the Alpha and Omega, the Beginning and the End... the Creator of the universe, and the Sustainer of all things was mindful of me... just amazes me so much, I really can't fully fathom it! But I stand on His Word as true, and thank Him for so great a love... so great a plan that He would give His one and only Son, and that that Son would humble Himself and become a man so that He could pay the price for the sin of the world... WOW! He did all this because He loves us... you and me! No matter how sinful we have been, no matter what we have done, no matter how far from Him we are... He loves us and wants to have a personal relationship with us! So on this Christmas day... many of my thoughts and prayers will be in thanksgiving for His ultimate gift... Jesus... Emanuel... God with us! I want to wish you all a very Merry Christmas, and a new year filled with God's richest blessings!

I made this card using Layers of Color Poinsettia Frame cling art stamp and the Spellbinder's Label Sixteen. I love these beautiful frames and having them match the spellbinders dies just makes them even sweeter! LOC is excited to be a Spellbinder's Preferred Company! The designer paper is Graphic 45 and the cs is Gina K.
