Day Three Sneak Peeks!!

My first two cards today feature the new "Mini Christmas Scriptures" set. There are *wonderful* verses in this set - both the "normal" Christmas verses, like "For there is born to you this day in the city of David a Savior, who is Christ the Lord." - but also verses like the one on the card above . Christ over all. Blessed by God forever.

I enjoyed using "non-traditional" colors on this, and for some reason - maybe the shape of the layers? - the holly wreath reminds me of a crown of thorns. Truly, though, isn't that the real message of Christmas?

The second card is my attempt at a little paper pieced scene. Along with the sentiment from the Mini Scripture set, I used the tree from Tree Delight Tags, and just cut off the little star from the top of the tree.

And for my last sneak peek today, I have a card from Meowy Christmas by Shawne Arnold. Isn't this little kitten such a sweetie?? Now this is the "before" picture... Be sure to check out the Clear Dollar Stamps gallery or start following my blog so you don't miss the "after" picture later this month. Let's just say kitty doesn't look so sweet any more!! :-)

Can you believe that we still have *more* sets to show you tomorrow??? Aren't these all *so* fun??? Be sure to check out the other designers' posts and I'll see you here tomorrow!
