Love Basic Grey Again This Christmas!
This is the Wassail collection, there are some really cool Snowmen, flowers and such in this paper pack but for these two cards I was using some closely matching papers from the set. This is the sketch challenge from last week on SCS and I did one horizontal and one vertical. I added a second little block to the one because it just needed something more afterwards.
I have been super busy lately and over the last three days I made one card, LOL! It was sitting on my slightly less messy desk and I would do a part and go back to it and I finished it this morning. I did another one like it last week and liked it so much I used the leftover papers to make a second. I hope to get to more this week, last week I made a bunch of cards but now my 6 year old is home on track out until Jan. 5th so I won't have as much free time.
I have been reading a lot of Santa and Jesus comparison emails today, the subject of the day in my inbox! I never thought of it this way but the story goes that Santa is watching you checking to see who's naughty and nice and if you are bad you won't get a present. Then as you get older somehow in your mind you transfer that to God is watching you, waiting for you to be bad etc. I am grateful I have learned that God's grace does not count on our being good or bad! It counts on our believing in Jesus. I hope kids don't get that from the Santa story. God is not Santa. Thank God!
