Symbols of Christmas

I absolutely was not going to get more Christmas stamps - after all, I can so easily use what I have.  Well, our neighbor  had a whole box of stamps at her yard sale, and I found 2 or 3 Christmas sentiments I could use - at $1 for all I could not afford to pass them up.  Then I went to Michael's for a couple of things, and my dear hubby saw a Christmas stamp - and pretty much forced me to buy it LOL!  It is by Stampendous, and is definitely symbolic of Christmas, with the star Bethlehem, and the wise men.  I used a gold gift bag to do the mat and the Cheery Lynn pine branches.  The bg is from the Faith stack by Paper Studio.  A strip of metallic gold ribbon completes the layout.

You absolutely couldn't pass up a deal like that Dorothy, and what a sweet hubby you have! He has great taste in stamps, the one he chose is beautiful and looks very versatile. I love the background paper too.

Your husband is a keeper Dorothy! I'd rather have a root canal than take my husband to Michael's! He has great taste too! Love the image and your creative recycling of a gift bag! Beautifully done! Thanks for joining us at ODBD!
