DeNami Christmas Challenge!

YAY! Christmas!! No, it's not too early to talk about it! I love Christmas and I always will. Having young children of my own has just increased the joy of Christmas for me. I love Christmas shopping, Christmas music (any time of the year, so there!), Christmas cookies (or any holiday-related food!), Christmas parties.... and best of all, the time we remember the birth of Jesus, our Savior. For me it's so important to take time to remember the reason we have life, since life keeps me so busy most of the time I barely have time to think!

ANYWAY, it's challenge time again at the DeNami Blog! Let me tell you, it really was a challenge for me this time. It was almost impossible to simply narrow down which Christmas stamps I wanted to use. If you've ever browsed the huge Christmas stamp collection DeNami has to offer, you know what I'm talking about! In the end, I picked some versatile background stamps and paired them with the extremely beautiful Holly Cluster. I confess I picked it mostly because I wanted to make ruby red rhinestone holly berries. *Happy sigh*

I hope this helps inspire you to join the challenge and maybe even to start your Christmas shopping early!
