Cake, anyone?


It's finally here and all the days, weeks, even months of preparation have now culminated in this wonderful, wonderful day!

Well, hopefully, that is.......I'm scheduling this post to pop up in your reader on CHRISTMAS DAY because I and my long-suffering loving hubster will be at our daughter's house, eating her out of house and home sharing her family's Christmas dinner.....yaaaaay!

There are two reasons for this post........firstly, I want to wish each and every one of you the Merriest Christmas ever, and to thank you all for being around my little space as often as you are.....I'd be very lonely without you....haaaa!

Today, of all days, as we remember the birth of Jesus Christ, my Lord and my Saviour, I want none of you to be in any doubt about my Christian faith............I believe, with every fibre of my being, that I am a Child of God, and that His Son, Jesus Christ was born of a virgin mother so that He could begin the ministry that would lead His followers back to our Father in Heaven.
I know that my Saviour is risen, and that He atoned for my sins, so that I might, by my obedience and  faithfulness, return to be with Him, and my Heavenly Father, for eternity.
I also know that, through obedience, families can be together forever!

I hope that you might know, through my words and my deeds,  that I love....actually love.....my fellow citizens of this beautiful world.  
I am honoured and humbled that you spend a little of your time at my blog........thank you!

It may be CHRISTMAS DAY....WOOHOO......but, it's also Tuesday which means we have a challenge for you at 

Before I welcome you to our challenge, our sponsor this week is Clear Dollar Stamps! Our random prize winner will receive a $15 voucher for use at the Clear Dollar Stamps store.. wonderful! We're thrilled to have Clear Dollar Stamps as a sponsor because the images are wonderful, and the sentiments fit the heart of our challenges here so perfectly!

This week we have a colour challenge for you.... your creations can be along any theme, as long as the colours used are....


And don't forget your "Twist of Faith".....include a scripture, an uplifting quote or sentiment.....

I chose to make a lovely wedding card with the Now and Forever image set.......

The card base is white 6"x6" and I used a beautiful piece of embossed white card from Craftwork Cards as the bottom layer.  I used a Creatables die to cut a pretty label from thin gold paper, then another lovely label, in white card, cut with a Joy Craft die..........

I left most of the gorgeous wedding cake image as plain white, as printed, and used a gold Deco Roller pen to add dots to the ribbons.......I used the pen to add colour to the leaves and centres of the roses.......

This lovely sentiment comes with the images....there's also a beautiful bouquet, a pretty church and several more sentiments.....a really lovely set and a pleasure to use.

Why not take out some time for yourself, after the festivities, and make a card to enter this great challenge?

May your Christmas be MERRY AND BRIGHT!
