God grant you the light in Christmas, which is faith;
the warmth of Christmas, which is love;
the radiance of Christmas, which is purity;
the righteousness of Christmas, which is justice;
the belief in Christmas, which is truth;
& all of Christmas, which is Christ.

An Ornament Win

Last month Andrea at The Craft Room posted a photo of 7 Christmas ornaments she was offering as a giveaway ... one ornament each for 7 lucky winners ... & I was one of those lucky winners!

Isn't it absolutely gorgeous!!!  I love it!  No, wait ... did I say I love it?  That's not right. What I meant to say is I LOVE IT!!!!!  I wish my photo showed it off to full advantage ... it is much prettier than you can see here. Andrea's stitches are perfect, her finishing is perfect, the design is perfect, it's just all totally perfect!!!  And take a look at what Andrea did on the back.
Isn't this a great backing idea   : )

Not only did I receive a breathtaking hand stitched ornament, I also received a wonderful handmade card!
Andrea's card making talent is amazing!  

Thank you Andrea!  I will always treasure both the ornament & the card   : )
