Always Remember This December 25






Okay, Bleeps, we made it to Hump Day! Today, I'm sharing a quick holiday card with you and focuses on the reason for the season and here and now. It is easy to get caught up in the hustle and bustle of the holiday season trying to make sure everyone is remembered and the gifts are purchased, but we should not forget the reason for the season and be thankful for the here and now. So, I made this card to remind people to remember this Christmas as it is and just let it be! Regardless if you could not find that special toy or could not afford all of the gifts you wanted to give because we are all on budgets, it is fellowship with family, friends, and of course your spiritual world. Writing this post made me think of more card designs (I bet you know what I'm thinking too)...see inspiration can spark at any moment! So, enjoy this holiday and let it be one to always remember!

Enjoy yourself and thank you for looking and reading!
