GOOD NEWS AND WISE MEN


 First the good news.  I was selected to be a guest designer at


 I've done a guest spot before but only on the sites my sister is a DT for.  That had some nepotism involved so I'm glad I was actually picked this time. 

Our challenge is to use something from your home to inspire you.  Well I was having some stressful couple of weeks and not feeling very inspired.  Then the young women at our church put up the Christmas tree.  I saw it the next week.  It was covered in some beautiful decorations but also it is a giving tree.  There are things hung up around it that you can pick and get a gift for a family in need or maybe do a service for one.  There are all kinds of things to pick from.  Each one helps a family in need.


 This made me think of the gifts that were brought to Jesus by the three wise men.  I have had this stamp for years and never used it.  I wanted it to be simple with no embellishing so that the image was the only focus.

I hope you enjoy this card and remember Jesus and all the good He did.  Use His example to guide you in all you do.

MERRY CHRISTMAS

This is such a fantastic card on so many levels! First off, I love that you kept with the beautiful traditional silhouette of the wise men. Next, I thought it was brilliant of you to pair it with colored snowflakes! That was a great twist to see on a classic image. Well done and thanks so much for sharing your talents with us here at the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge Blog!
