Birthday Wishes & Merry Christmas!

I haven't blogged in a while because we recently got a new computer and have been in Sydney for a few days as a wee holiday. Sarah and I made this card together for her friend's birthday. It was inspired by a card on the lovely Marelle Taylor's blog. Thanks Marelle! The set Priceless has been used on many stunning cards. It's a winner! And a good value for money.
We've just got back from the Christmas Eve service at church, and are ready to settle down and watch our traditional Christmas Eve movie "The Grinch who stole Christmas."
May you remember the true meaning of Christmas and may God richly bless your hearts.
