Christmas Is All In The Heart

I was thinking about Christmas today and what it means to me. For me it is family gathering together, the joy of watching the wonder on my grandson's faces, a special time to worship our Lord and creating memories for the heart. The world always seems a little softer at Christmas. This card made me think of all of this as I am wishing our family could be together this year. .... OK, now on to my card! I loved the 'blues' in this card. I dug out a Christmas pack of paper that I had from last year and had fogotten...shhhh...don't tell my husband! LOL! I used a Memory box die for the tree and then added glitter to the die cut. I am not sure you can see the sparkle?! By the time I had it adhered to my card I had sparkles and glue everywhere! I also used a Spica pen around the edge of my sentiment, and then added a white gel pen to the snowflakes and a rhinestone to the center. Just a fun card for my Christmas stash!
My Song: Christmas Is All In the Heart
In a one bedroom apartment on the humble side of town,
There stands a little Christmas tree, looks a lot like Charlie Brown's,
 And underneath there's one little gift for him and one little gift for her.
After six months on the new job, they're still barely getting by,
 So in the way of decorations, there's nothing there to catch your eye;
 But both of them would be the first to say:
We're together, we're gonna have the merriest Christmas anyway.
'Cause Christmas is all in the heart, that's where the feeling starts,
 And like a fire inside, it touches every part,
 'Cause Christmas is all in the heart,
 And even if no white snow falls, that's all right  because
The joy can still be found, wherever you are,
 'Cause Christmas is all in the heart
