Delightful Decoration Christmas Card

Here is the third card that I completed this past weekend. The stamp set is Stampin' Up! Delightful Decorations, Cardstock is Rose Red and Silver, along with some Designer Series paper. I embossed the ornament and "Merry Christmas" in silver and added silver cord to complete my card.
This card started out totally different than what I had in mind, but it works and I like it.
And lastly, here is my thought for today:
Love one another, but make not a bond of love. Let it rather be a moving sea between the shores of your souls.

Happy Autumn

Develop an attitude of gratitude, and give thanks for everything that happens to you, knowing that every step forward is a step toward achieving something bigger and better than your current situation.
—Brian Tracy

The 7 Ups!
1. Wake Up !!
Decide to have a good day.'This is the day the Lord hath made;Let us rejoice and be glad in it.' Psalms 118:24
2. Dress Up !!
The best way to dress up is to put on a smile.A smile is an inexpensive way to improve your looks. 'The Lord does not look at the things man looks at.Man looks at outward appearance,But the Lord looks at the heart.'I Samuel 16:7
3. Shut Up!! Say nice things and learn to listen.God gave us two ears and one mouth,So He must have meant for us to do twice as much listening as talking.'He who guards his lips guards his soul.' Proverbs 13:3
4. Stand Up!!
. . . For what you believe in.Stand for something or you will fall for anything. 'Let us not be weary in doing good; for at the proper time,We will reap a harvest if we do not give up.Therefore, as we have opportunity, let us do good...'Galatians 6:9-10
5. Look Up !!
. . To the Lord.'I can do everything through Christ who strengthens me'. Philippians 4:13
6. Reach Up !!. . For something higher.'Trust in the Lord with all your heart,And lean not unto your own understanding.In all your ways, acknowledge Him, and He will direct your path.' Proverbs 3:5-6
7. Lift Up !!. . Your Prayers. 'Do not worry about anything; insteadPRAY ABOUT EVERYTHING.'Philippians 4:6
Wishing you a Blessed day!!!

Lovely as a Tree Christmas Card

I just love this card, unforunately you can really see the colors as well as in real life, but let me tell you it turned out to be just gorgerous!!
The Stampin' Up! stamp set that I used is the classic Lovely as a Tree and Short and Sweet. Cardstock is Night of Navy, Whisper White and Silver. I embossed the trees with Irradescent Ice Embossing Powder, added a Snowflake and Brad to complete my card.
Thanks for stopping in and viewing my card, I hope you like it. My thought for today:
"A friend is: A push when your stopped. A word when your lonely. A guide when your searching. A smile when your sad. A song when your glad."

I didn't realize that I have been "missing in action" for a bit, and for a very good reason! I have been stamping and making my Christmas cards. So here is one that I just got done making and thought I would share it with you.

I used Stampin' Up! Patterned Pines and Short & Sweet Stamps, the Cardstock is Creamy Carmel and Real Red, along with some Designer Series Paper, Dimensions and here is the card that I made!

I have two other designs that I also made and will share them in the next couple of days. Thanks for stopping!
