Merry Christmas!

The wrapping is done, the tree is up and the food is ready. Christmas has finally arrived! I'd like to take this chance to wish all of you a Merry Christmas! I hope you celebrate, as I will be, with the ones you love most.

I'm so excited to head to Christmas Eve Mass tonight. Celebrating the birth of Christ is what this is all about and sitting there in the beautifully decorated church, singing the songs and listening to the gospel passages always moves me to tears. Regardless of your beliefs, my wish for you is that your heart is filled with the loving spirit of this wonderful holiday.

Today is a special day in our house for another reason, too! It's my hubby's birthday! Yes, he was born at midnight on Christmas Eve. My mother in law loves to tell the story of how the nurses all gathered around him in the delivery room and sang Silent Night. Not a bad way to enter this world, huh!

Here is the card I made for him. I used some fun Jenni Bowlin goodies along with Papertrey Ink's Star Prints set. I stamped it onto Vintage Cream cardstock using True Black and Pure Poppy inks. I added the Joy Bingo card to give it a Christmasy flair, being that he has a Dec. 24 birthday!



That's it for today!
Have a wonderful Christmas. ;)
