So very nice of you to stop by! What a fun and challenging hobby to have!

May you always have work for your hands to do.
May your pockets hold always a coin or two.
May the sun shine bright on your windowpane.
May the rainbow be certain to follow each rain.
May the hand of a friend always be near you.
And may God fill your heart with gladness to cheer you.

The Gladness of Christmas!

This is for the Outlines Challenge 25  -- Inspiration Photo.  (here is the website)

 This is the photo for Inspiration.

 I decided to do this very colorful Christmas card! I used GKD white cs, Recollections Jingle Bells dp. I colored this Outlines stamp, H-995 Snowman Tower with Copics and Sakura glitter pens and added some buttons, and white polar fleece Flower Soft for snowy look. Also added some bling, ribbon and Candi dots. The Spellbinders Curved Rectangles was used to diecut the snowmen.

The inside sentiments is Outlines D-308 May You and the Snowflakes are B-821 Flurry Sm and C-820 Flurry Large. They were colored with Copics and Sakura glitter pens. Again added some Candi dots. It was stamped with Tuxedo Black Memento ink.

And hopefully your Christmas will be filled with gladness, hope, peace and love!
