I'm showing you a sample of some cards I made for Miracle on Maxwell this year (our church is located on Maxwell...clever, no??). I needed images that would work up quickly, which is quite a feat for me, as I take FOREVER to colour images!! I bought this beautiful set from Flourishes (All that Glitters). I am in love with these ornament images...so beautiful! I stamped them on some leftover Prism Simply Smooth (which I never seem to use anymore), and coloured with Copics. I kept these very simple, as I needed quite a few. They were paired up with papers from DCWV, and satin ribbon from Walmart.
Here is a closeup of one of the cards. I added some Martha Stewart glitter to the ornaments on this one:
Here are a couple made with one of the new Christmas sets from CC Designs. I had bought this set, and almost didn't ink it up this year! I think they are perfect for our program! These too worked up very quickly, and I love that they focus on the "reason for the season"!!
Giving to those less fortunate is just one way that we can show others the love of God. During this beautiful season, it is easy to get caught up in all the hustle, bustle and materialism. It is important to remember to slow down, and take time to reflect on the meaning of Christmas. So, while out shopping for our loved ones, let's try to remember to drop our change in the Kettles, or pick up an extra bag of groceries for your local food bank. How about that "mitten tree" at the mall? There are so many ways to show our love for others...think about how you can bless another person today!
Hope you all have a wonderful day! Thanks for stopping by, and I hope to be back soon with a new post...I've been a busy stamper lately!!
