Today is my last project for the 25 Days Showcase, and can I just give Melin and her elves a big round of applause! I’ve had so much fun being a part of their showcase, what I’ve enjoyed most is the friendship and the fun of being in the middle of such a talented group!
When we were choosing our days, I immediately fell in love with this stamp and knew I had to color it! Get ready, here’s me being serious for a moment… Christmas has been hard for me the past two years since we lost my Dad. He was always such a part of the holidays, and while I enjoy the heck out of my two children during this magical time, it’s hard not to choke up often as his absence is so pronounced.
This stamp… this stamp is everything that is right about Christmas. When we focus on Jesus, the true meaning of Christmas, all of the hurt goes away. That’s why he came right? To show us love and to make our hurts more bearable. I’ll see Daddy again one day, because of a tiny baby born 2,000 years ago. My prayer for all of you that are struggling this season is that you will lay your hurts at the foot of the “tree”.
So this card was created using Melin’s lovely stamp, Copic Markers (E23, E37, E29, G 05, G09, G29, Y21, Y35) and some “Card stuff”.
