And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God,
to them who are the called according to his purpose. . Romans 8:28


For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout,
with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God:
and the dead in Christ shall rise first:
Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air:
and so shall we ever be with the Lord. 1 Thessalonians 4:16,17 / KJV
Jesus is our soon coming King
James 5:8 Be ye also patient; stablish your hearts: for the coming of the Lord draweth nigh."

5 Days of Christmas Digi Release: DAY 1

It's THE day you have been waiting for!
The day Fresh Brewed Designs releases their NEW Christmas digital stamps.

I had So much fun drawing these digis.
I love everything about Christmas. 
The happiness, joy, togetherness, love, and magic it brings.
And the only reason for that is because our Lord and Savior
Jesus Christ was born. What a wonderful reason to celebrate.
I have seen so many people complaining about Christmas lately.
Decorations are out too soon. 
We shouldn't do this or that. 
If you are a Christian, you shouldn't teach your kids about Santa.
I am going to now tell you that I don't agree with any of it. 
Bring on the decorations! More time to celebrate!
Santa is not 'bad' as long as you keep CHRIST first and the center of it all. 
I am so super excited about the release of new movie SAVING CHRISTMAS 
by Kirck Cameron.  (I encourage you to check it out and watch the trailor)
I will be watching this at a theater near me soon! :)

Now enough gabbing and back to the reason I am here, 
to share our NEW DIGIS WITH YOU!!!

The digi I chose to create with today is called:

This card also features a new Christmas sentiment
Wishing you a warm and cozy Christmas. 

For this card I used papers from the American Craft Hot Cocoa paper pad. 
I used PTI Black cardstock and white cardstock by 
Cardstock Warehouse Paper Co .
Embellies: pompom, confetti snowflakes, enamel dots. 

Challenges for this card:

Jingle Belles: Creatures (elves were listed... does Santa count too?)

Now another card using the same image:

For this card I used the pebbles Home for Christmas 6x6 paper pad, 
a piece of dotty basics red paper from Papertrey Inc, and white cardstock by 
Cardstock Warehouse Paper Co .
The glitter is all by american craft. I used a glue pen to add the dots to the blanket
and a strip of double sided tape to add the glittered 'santa belt' to the base of the card. 
The ribbon and other embellies were from my stash. 

Challenges for this card:

  1. Both are great cards but I think I am partial to the one with the Santa belt at the bottom. I love the little pompom on his hat and the gole belt buckle is a very creative idea. Love that tiny tree, too.

  2. This is a very cute design ♥ I like seeing it in two different colors♥

  3. Adorable cards, the image is darling, great colors, papers and accents. Thank you for joining us this week at HIMCR.
