Christmas Blessings!

Hello my sweet blogging friends! I wanted to take a moment to wish each and every one of you a very Merry Christmas filled with blessings and the hope of a happy and healthy New Year. I'm truly grateful to have met so many new friends (and might I add talented!) through this blogging journey of mine. To my treasured followers, you're the best and you lift my spirits every day.


I have another Christmas card to share for the Wee Memories challenge #80. And I'm dedicating it to all of you special people who pop in to visit me from time to time. I love hearing from you and having your continued support and encouragement.

The circle frame/violet stamp and the larger floral stamp are both Hero Arts. I fussy cut a few of the violets then popped them up with foam dots. My pine sprig punch is Martha Stewart. This beautiful image of the Holy Mother and baby Jesus is from the Christmas postage stamps that I bought last year. You know that larger image they have on the book of stamps...I thought it was far too pretty to throw away! I cut away part of the circle stamp to nestled them in among the violets and pine. The tiny sentiment is by Morning Star Stamps and the dot clusters are from Stamps by Judith. A scattering of jeweled flowers and some Stickles give my card a touch of holiday sparkle.

Christmas Blessings  ~Lisa

I love the picture of the Holy Mother with baby Jesus. Just beautiful! We kinda ended up using the same little flowers, and I did not see your card until now.

Lisa, I love that you used part of a book of stamps to create your pretty card. I have fun looking for things to save and repurpose.

The violets look sweet with the MS branch punch in clusters. :) Merry Christmas!
