Glorious Christmas

The other day I got a package from HSN; I have signed up for auto shipment of Anna Griffin embossing folders.

The card made today uses her Mistletoe Wreath EF; it is hand painted with Stampin' Up markers (this took quite a long time, as I am not much for coloring!) and glittered with Martha Stewart large glitter flakes; a handmade bow finishes the card.

Here it is:

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
