Christmas Verse Blog Hop

Welcome to Curls & Grins Creations! Today we are here to give God the glory for what is the real reason of the season with our favorite verse for Christmas that means so much to us...please read and enjoy the creations these wonderful ladies did on their blog. Now lets get this party started!

If you came from Tina at http://craftyandgreen.blogspot.com then you are in the right place. If you happened upon my blog then start with Kari at http://purplefuntastickcreations.blogspot.com/... We don't want you missing a thing!

We have a great prize to give away so you must comment on every blog along the way...easy peasy! :)

One of my favorite Christmas verses is Isaiah 9:6:
For unto us a child is born,
unto us a son is given:
and the government shall be upon his shoulder:
and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God,
The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace.

The shepherds, the wise men, Joseph and Mary all looked upon a baby and knew this verse.  It's almost overwhelming to imagine how they felt when they first laid eyes upon him.

I created this card with Isaiah 9:6 in mind.  I stamped Mary and Joseph using the 2nd generation technique and covered Jesus with Liquid Glass to make him stand out a little from the card.  I left it simple to keep the focus on Jesus.  "Celebrate the Season" is underneath the scene and the verse is stamped inside the card.  Below is my new favorite Christmas stamp set: Glory to God from Close to my Heart

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you have been inspired and remember the important reason for the season! Have a blessed Christmas and holiday season!

All purchases at my Close to my Heart site go towards the adoption expenses of our son.  This year, we will get him just in time to celebrate our first Christmas together, though it may be a few days late.
