Rejoice in the Lord.

Hello my friends! I hope you are having a great Saturday. We are having a great day. DD had her first ever soccer game. it was so much fun to see all the KG running after the ball. Even though my daughter's team didn't win, they had a lot of fun and the parents too.
(My daughter is the one with the 2 pony tales. 4th from left)

I have a Christmas card for you today. I used the sketch from Stampin' Sisters in Christ. Well, just a little story behind this creation. I saw the sketch and save it to print it "later", so then my husband decided to work on the computer and tried to fix some software problems we have (still not fixed), so I tried and tried to remember the sketch and decided to make a card with what I remembered. I knew the sketch had 3 circles for brads or similar, so I put them in the corners, then when I saw the sketch I noticed there were together in one corner, oppss!! I hope my card still qualifies for the challenge.
Here is my card: I used the poinsettia from A year of Flowers (Gina K), the sentiment is from an old stamp I found. The image was stamped 3 times, colored with Prismacolor Pencils and then cut them out and created a nice 3D look. The pretty paper is from SEI. The Rhinestones are from Making Memories. I cut the white circle with the Cricut machine and I used scallop circles for the red one.

Hope you like it.
Have an awesome day!!
