Joyeux Noel

Friday, December 3, 2010
For several years now we have been sponsoring a young girl from Bolivia through Compassion International. I love receiving her sweet notes of thanks and telling me how she is doing. I have been sending her cards, but then I thought how much more fun it would be to send her one in her own language. One of the perks of being a demonstrator is that we get free stamps, so this time I thought I would get one in Spanish so I could use it especially for Noemy.

Then I went one step farther and asked one of my young college friends who is minoring in Spanish to translate the saying from the Come To Bethlehem set, which says...

"Giving thanks for God's Gift of Love and the joy we share through Christ our Lord.

and put that inside her card...

I hope she likes it!

SS: Holiday Best (Spanish version)
CS: Garden Green, Real Red, Very Vanilla
INK: Garden Green. Then I cleaned off the little bird with a wet wipe and colored it in using my Real Red Marker
Accessories: Decorative Label Punch, Scallop Trim Corner Punch, Petals A Plenty EF with the Big Shot, Vanilla Smooch Spritz, poinsettia embellishments (local craft store) were something I had laying around my craft table and needed to get used up.

So For Now...

Joyeux Stamping!!!

Pin It Now!
