For Unto Us A Child Is Born

Christmas - Scripture

First and foremost, Happy Thanksgiving to all my American friends!!  Wishing you a day full of happiness as you reflect on all you have to be thankful for.  If you are a Black Friday shopper - good luck!! 

I started off using a sketch, but the card morphed to such a degree that it doesn't really resemble it so this is sort of my own creations - and since they are few and far between this is something to celebrate LOL!  Do love making square cards and must make a point of making them more often.

I dug into my "to be used on another card" pile and pulled out a few goodies - yeah!  Paired them with this fun paper from MME's I Believe paper pad and this was the result.  I'm overdosing on snowflakes, I know, but I just can't help myself.  Absolutely love them! 

Wishing you a blessed day :)
