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!

Merry Monday # 276

Welcome to another week of inspiring you to make some Christmas cards.  I am the host this week at the Merry Monday Challenge and I thought this photo was so sweet.  It has several different directions you could go to make a Christmas card.  I chose the candles in the window.  This is a Deep Red cling stamp called "Holiday Candles" that a sweet friend gave to me.
I hope you will join us this week and I look forward to seeing your card in the gallery!

Heart Hugs, friends!
