Good morning everyone!
Hope it is winter in your neck of the woods...It is still NOT winter here. Hard to feel like Christmastime when it is so warm. Starting to feel like my Aussie friends!
But I can still imagine...Here is my winter center step card.Warm Wishes, Mini Tag Sentiments
ODBD dies used:Gilded Gate, Mini Tags
ODBD paper used: Christmas Collection 2014
My center has three steps. The trees and snowman are cut out and glittered and stuck on the very back. The next layer has the ground and snowman so in real life, he looks VERY 3-D. I punched snowflakes and also used an old Spellbinder snowflake die set. I die cut the garden gate (Gilded Gate) with silver and subbed some gunmetal Rub-Ons through the openings of the die. I die cut a heart charm to go with the sentiment and also die cut two of the mini tags for the sentiment and Merry Christmas sentiment, then tied them all together with silver thread.

Joy To The World
Be glad and rejoice with all your heart for the Lord is come! He is come as a baby in the manger, as the Savior of the world, as the King of kings and Lord of lords, as the One who would die on the Roman cross for us because He loves us so much!
If we are down cast for any reason, all we need to do is remember the One who holds our lives in His hands, the One who gives us breath to breathe, the One who created all things and holds them together by His might. He is our everlasting joy. If we are His, we can have joy even in our trials, even in our darkest hour! Not "yippee, I'm so happy I'm having difficulty!" No, it's just that inner joy, the peace that passes understanding, the joy of knowing we have eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord!
Do YOU have Him as your Lord? You can, just tell Him you are sorry for all the times you've failed, ask Him to forgive you of your sin and tell Him you want Him to come into your heart. Do it right now. Then go tell someone. Tell a local pastor or a friend you KNOW is a Christian and can help you on your way to knowing Him. Turn 180 degrees from dark to His light. HE will give you a new heart, a clean spirit! You can email me if you have questions.
