Warm Christmas Glow

 Hello there , welcome to my room and thanks for calling in .
Here it is almost Christmas . Time to reflect on the year that is almost gone .

Here are some words of recent readings of mine which are a small part of a Christmas prayer that I would like to share with you .

May the Christmas morning make us happy to be thy children,
and Christmas evening bring us to our beds with grateful thoughts,
forgiving and forgiven, for Jesus' sake. Amen.
-- Robert Louis Stevenson


Warm wishes for a wonderful Christmas with family and friends to each and everyone of you .

Rain , hail , sleet or snow there is no better time to be in your craft space creating the next project . Very damp and cold outside but toasty in here .
Should be doing house work but you know how it is . 
My idea of house work is to stand in the doorway and cast a sweeping glance around the room .
I know , that is bad .

Still,  here I am sharing a card for this new challenge from Christmas Card Challenges



Real Red card base, Whisper White layer embossed and a die cut frame for image . Narrow border from blue card , SU stash .  Copics as colour medium . Sentiment from retired  SU set , Christmas Greetings . Image , Sonlight Crafts inc.
