One seed can start a garden, one candle can light a room, one step can begin a journey, one conversation can start a friendship, one smile from a handmade card can lift one's SPIRIT!

Freshly Made Sketches...

I wasn't sure I was going to be able to make this one, but I finished a project I was working on, so I thought while I had some stamps out, I would put this together, you can find the sketch at Freshly Made Sketches.
Here is my card for this sketch:
  It is pretty simple, not any bling or froo froo, but I kind of like the simplicity of it....wish I had a stamp that said:  the Reason for the Season...or something similar...I don't but I do like "O Holy Night"...for indeed it is...

Edited to tell a story:  After posting this, I showed my husband the card...he looked at it and said the "horse" is half off the page...then he wasn't sure what the second picture was...so I told him "a little lambikins"!  He then went to the third stamped image and couldn't figure it out, I asked him to read the sentiment...still didn't click, he thought it was a lobster or an ant...what can I say??

  3. I looked at it and knew right away, and what I took from it was the animals were offset on purpose while the baby Jesus was perfectly centered. Great card.
