Smile! Are you up for the challenge?

That's right! You guessed it. This weeks challenge is all about a smile. Anthony J. D'Angelo said "Smile, it is the key that fits the lock of everybody's heart". I couldn't have said it better myself. A smile is contagious and can really light up someone's day. Let's all try to share a smile and in turn cause someone else to smile. In order to participate you will be asked to use the "Smile" Bingo card available below together with another digistamp. Feel free to enter any newly made projects, but in order to qualify to win, you will need to use the "Smile" Bingo card and a Guylou's Inimitability digistamp. If you don’t have any GI images, you can visit Guylou's Inimitability Store or you can have a look for a freebie in her group on Crafters Digital Art Center!

To save the image on your computer, right click on the image and select "Save image as..."

The winner will be awarded a digistamp of her choice from Guylou's Inimitability Store and will also be invited to be a Guest Designer on an upcoming challenge and will get another GI digistamp to make a card or project along with the DT.

Here is the card I did using the "Smile" Bingo Card and "Bernadette".

I hope it brings a smile to your face. Oh, and be sure to visit the other DT members for a "Smile".
You have until 10pm on January 6th to share a "Smile" of your own. Come on and join the challenge and smile all along the way!!!

Christmas is in the air.

Can you feel it? Ahhhh....I can. It feels and smells like Christmas. Christmas lights are burning everywhere. Shoppers are rushing to and fro. Santa is watching whose naughty and nice. Children anticipating what Santa will bring. But best of all....the celebrating of the Newborn King. Jesus! What would Christmas be without Him? Nothing...absolutely nothing. Without Jesus there would be no Christmas. Jesus is the reason for the season. No matter how hard the world may try they will never be able to take the "Christ" out of Christmas....Never!!!

Phillip and I enjoyed a wonderful meal tonight at our Senior Christmas dinner.(oh...and I am not the senior...he is! LOL) All the tables were beautifully decorated and the food was scrumptious. Here is a picture my sister took of us tonight.

Nana and her "Big Daddy" as Emma would say! LOL!
