Mojo Monday #273

Mojo 273 - Marisa

Merry Christmas Eve everyone!!  It's a busy day here at the Ritzen residence as today is the day we celebrate the birth of Christ as a family.  We are hosting so hubby will be bar-b-quing the prime rib roast and making Yorkshire pudding, I'll be sous chef extraordinaire, my mom will bring some veggies, cookies and cherry pie and dear friends will be joining us as they are "kidless" for the first time this year and we wanted to "fill the transition gap" a bit by having them over.  

I'll no doubt cry yet again at our Christmas Eve service when our worship Pastor sings O Holy Night.  It's my favorite Christmas carol as it depicts the reason for the deep, resounding joy in my heart and the words always move me to the very core of my being.

That being said, welcome to Mojo Monday!  I'm sure the next few days will be crazy busy for you, but it is a wonderful sketch to be able to enjoy once company has left and you are looking for a little down time - maybe even using some new stamping goodies you got for Christmas :)

I love the pink and black! Such a pretty card! Sounds like you'll have a wonderful time of celebration. Wish I could hear your Pastor sing O Holy Night. It's one of my favorites too. Merry Christmas to you and yours.

Merry Christmas, Marisa! We went to 5 o'clock church service, which is always so beautiful. The candles in church are lit, we sing all gorgeous hymns, and Silent Night is always the last one before we leave. It moves me, too. I always have tears in my eyes. And when we stepped outside, it was lightly snowing. Couldn't have been more perfect!

Love your card, btw. The colors are so pretty!
