Christmas cards

The Paris events are behind us but the sadness, the loss and the devastation for many families remains. The sirens were heard in every village of France when a minutes silence was announced out of respect for the dead on Monday. I pray that people will be drawn to God through Jesus Christ who is the Prince of Peace.

The Bible says in 1 Tim.2:5 :
For there is only one God and one Mediator who can reconcile God and humanity--the man Christ Jesus.

... and through Jesus Christ, human beings can be reconciled with each other. God, who is the beginning and the end, knows all things and we have to trust Him.

I am sharing a couple of Christmas Cards, probably already seen of my flickr gallery and on Pinterest, but these are the cards I'm sharing today.

I wanted to create the feel of Christmas lights in the tree and in a way use up the loose gems I had. The diecut deer I have kept for a couple of years, a gift from Sue Czosek. My absolute favorite definition stamp from Hero Arts 'Joy to You' is one I use a lot on my cards.

 This was made with the same idea as the first one.

Thank you, as always, for your precious visit, it makes me so thankful that our crafting community is so kind and generous!
