Welcome to the "Reason For the Season" blog hop. We're happy to have you all here with us today to celebrate the reason for the season. Each blogger will have their own interpretation of their reason for the season, and I hope that you find loads of creative inspiration along the way.

NOW... let's get on to the hop!!!

Here is the complete line up

If you're coming from Suzanne blog, then you're on the right track. If you just happened to stop by my blog today, be sure to head on back to Kristy's blog and hop from the beginning.

Now, I must admit I got this wonderful file from Bugaboo Digital Stamps, Jesus Words to color and use for my project which I had colored immediately. I had a problem though as I wanted to do something with this design and create into a card with meaning and something else. 

Well, I know most of us were glued to the television watching the horrific scene at the elementary school in Connecticut.  The answer was there all along. Jesus is the reason for the season. It's a simple fact of life . 

Now it's time for you to head on over to Ashley for her creativity.

Thank you so much for hopping along with us today, and we all hope that you were filled with loads of Christmas joy, as well as loads of inspiration!

God Bless 
Thank you for stopping by to visit today.
Much Love, Hugs, and Friendship
