Winter Wonderland - Jesus is the Reason for the Season


Hello friends!

Welcome to another Winter Wonderland challenge today where I'm hosting this weeks theme of 'Jesus is the Reason for the Season'.

Whilst I absolutely adore snowmen and santas I always make cards that, for me, reflect the true reason of Christmas - Jesus.  And this gorgeous image fell through my letterbox this past week from a very sweet and wonderful blogging friend (you know who you are)!  It is a perfect fit for this weeks theme so I didn't have to think twice about pulling out my copics and get my colouring under way.  The sketch is from this weeks Sketch Saturday so I'll also be entering my card in there.  Stamp Something has a theme of 'Something Punchy' so my card can be entered in there too.

You may also notice the circle die is new too (thanks to my mom - she brought me some beautiful Nellie Snellen die cuts - aren't I lucky??).  I had to cut this one in half to make it work around this image but I like how it's turned out.

Well, I hope you're able to join in the fun at Winter Wonderland this week - the challenge is being hosted by I Did It Creations so a fab prize is up for grabs! 

It is Thanksgiving here in Canada this weekend so today I'm taking a down day with my family as the boys have a 4 day weekend and we're going to relax.  On Sunday we'll be hosting a dinner for 13 people which is going to be a lot of fun but I need a quiet day to get myself ready, haha!!!

Enjoy your Friday everyone and I have my cup of coffee in hand ready to go and do some well-needed blog hopping!!

Hugs,
Danielle x

Oh my I just love your card, and that image is it just so super sweet or what? I love the cards that reflect the true meaning as well, but still love the snowmen. Beautifully done in the blues and browns. Thanks for sharing and have a lovely holiday weekend.
