Let the Heavens Rejoice

Today's Christmas card was fun to make because I love glitter. The stamps used were SU Lovely as a Tree and Hero Arts CL625. (Sorry--there was no name of the stamp set; just the number!)  Grey and green inks were used for the trees; soft blue ink was dabbed on for the sky; silver embossing powder was used for the sentiment. The trees were dabbed with glue and some spots in the sky, as well, and then it was dusted with glitter to resemble snow. The card is finished with an iridescent bow.

Here is the card:

One note to those of you who make cards for a hobby, but have more than you know what to do with: you might consider donating them to a local hospice. They not only need Christmas cards, but birthday cards, thinking of you cards and general cards that are uplifting. These people are so in need of encouragement and any card that is homemade is such a treasure to them and is immensely meaningful to them. When you contact the hospice, you might ask to speak to one of the chaplains who work there. They will know how to distribute your cards. Any number of cards that you donate will be gratefully received, and much appreciated.

Romans 10:9-11
If you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. For it is by believing in your heart that you are made right with God, and it is by confessing with your mouth that you are saved. NLT 

Acts 13:38-39
"Brothers, listen! We are here to proclaim that through this man Jesus there is forgiveness for your sins. Everyone who believes in him is declared right with God—something the law of Moses could never do."  NLT
