CCC #23 ~ A Child is Born!

Well hello! How is all of your Christmas planning going? I have done a bit of shopping and hope to get all of my Christmas cards out today. Shhh don't tell anyone but I bought some cards ~ Eeeeegads!!! Shameful isn't it. Things snuck up on me this year and I decided to bite the bullet! I do have a few made and they will go out as well. Decided to play along with CASology this week and added one more to the mere few! Our cue word for this week is gift.



I don't know about any of you, but I for one can not think of a better gift then our Savior! I bought this teeny little stamp set years ago. It's from Rosie's Roadshow and I am in love with it. I went very clean and simple with two Spellbinders layered die cuts and a touch of twine adorned with wee felt holly leaves. Quick and simple ~ if you don't count my stamping the first one crooked ~ drat! Sure hated to throw my little baby Jesus away!!!


I hope you have a splendid day. Max and I are off to enjoy an abundance of blue skies and bright sunshine!!! ~Lisa

This is perfectly cute and hugely profound, Lisa. A great Christmas card all 'round.

I bought my cards at Shutterfly this year. I was stressing too much over making cards. I feel like the cobbler whose children go around with no shoes on their own feet! My friends and family will get a premade card from a card-maker. Ha!
