Christmas Blessings 2017 - stampmommas fall fest

This will be my first entry in this year's splitcoaststampers Falliday Fest - there will be 30 challenges, and we have until the end of Oct. to complete them.  I already know I will not attempt all 30 this year, but I will do several, and probably multiples of some of them.  This one required the word Blessings for a Christmas or fall card.  You will see more I am sure.  What are my blessings?  Too many to count.  However, the ones that have especially touched me recently are faith, family and friends.  My husband I, and our families, have experienced a fair amount of adversity recently,   Hubby's back pain has not responded well to treatment, and he was recently diagnosed with Parkinsons.  At the moment our son-in-law is hospitalized as a result of a serious stroke.  At the least he faces a very long recovery.  You can see why I am blessed to have faith, family and friends for support.
This Nativity die is unnamed; the Blessings if from Cheery Lynn.  The ribbon is metallic, and the base is dark blue.  Maybe I should cut the dies with the same blue cs rather than black.  What do you think?
