GCK - Merry Christmas!

Welcome to Day 3 of my Greeting Card Kids Series - Merry Christmas!

I LOVE Christmas.

I love the reason we celebrate Christmas!  In a nutshell:  God sent His son Jesus to this earth in the form of a baby, in order that he later suffer on the cross - so that we might have eternal life!  What a great gift!

Beyond that, I also enjoy the sights, smells, and sounds of Christmas!  Spending time with my family, baking, singing carols, hunting for the perfect tree, a fresh blanket of snow...and the kiddos playing outside in it.  Speaking of kiddos playing outside in the snow....

GCK #3 - Merry Christmas!

I know, it might seem kinda weird to have snowflakes embossed on chocolate colored cardstock...but I kinda like it (and it's fun to emboss with the Big Shot)! :)

I watercolored this one too. ;-)  The sweet lil' girl pulling the sled is decked out in her warm winter gear...complete with fluffy white trim (click on the pic and you should be able to see it's actually got dimension!)

I punched out the image with our new large scalloped circle punch, then layered another (real red) scallop behind it.

Well, what do you think?
