Prayerful Christmas

It's another wonderful day in December and I have another Christmas card to show you.  I received an email from a friend of mine that asked me to send a Christmas card to the ACLU.  The idea being to show them there are more people who want to leave Christmas in then want to take it out of everything.  Why let the minority of people dictate what the majority of us want.  

With that in mind I thought this image from Sassy Studio Designs would be the perfect image for their card.  I just love the image of her praying. I am very involved in church and I love all that goes with it.  I put a lovely sentiment inside as well.  I hope many people choose to do this as well.  If you would like to do this also leave me a note in the comments and I will send you the address.

This image is called "Giving Thanks" from SSD.  I colored her with Whisper Strokes Markers.  I used paper from The Paper Co. and digi paper from Fred She Said.  The ribbon tape is from Martha Stewart.  The snowflakes and the punch for the sentiment are EK Success. The sentiment is my own.  Finally I used Stickles from Ranger to give her some Christmas sparkle.  

I hope you like her and as always thanks for stopping by.

I am entering this card in the following challenges:
