Hello and welcome the the November 2022 edition of the Stamper’s Dozen Blog Hop!
As I write this, I am currently waiting for generous people to drop shoebox gifts off at our Operation Christmas Child Drop-Off location. We have Christmas music playing in the background and we have been snacking on Christmas cookies!
If you have not heard of Operation Christmas Child… it’s a ministry of Samaritan’s Purse that delivers shoebox gifts to children in need around the world. There is really so much more to it and I do encourage you to check them out!
As a drop off location, we will be putting in a lot of long hours over the next eight days. With that in mind, I created a card to send to all the drop off locations in Southern Illinois. Take a look…
I think that sentiment is just perfect for them! They will be so weary by the end of National Collection Week, but each of the shoebox gifts they receive will be an opportunity to share the Gospel with a child. That is defiant worth rejoicing over!
My basic color scheme is Cherry Cobbler and Evening Evergreen. That beautiful Designer Series Paper comes from the Boughs of Holly suite and the sentiment is from the Hope & Peace stamp set. I used the Tailor Made Tag does to cut out the tags. And that gorgeous little poinsettia came from the flowers in the Pretty Pillowbox does. I added the center to them with a Gold Adhesive Backed Swirl!
I hope that my simple card inspires you to send a note to those that might need a word of encouragement this Christmas season!
.Well, that’s all I have for you for now… Hop along Hoppers!
Until next time.. Keep it simple, Stampers!
