Hello My Friends & Welcome Visitors,

I have a dear friend that is going through a rough time right now with the passing of her father.  I feel so helpless, there is nothing I can do to help her get through this.  It is because she has such a beautiful, generous heart that she is in such pain right now.  I was going to send her a sympathy card, but then I decided to make her a Christmas gift to cheer her up and hopefully brighten her day.

This is for you my sweet friend  Rhonda.

This is a Santa Paperscape box from Dreaming Tree.  It is a box card that holds a battery powered tea light candle behind it to light it up.  Here it is lit up.

I wet embossed the sentiment to make it show up better on the red craft paper.

I am entering this card into the following challenges:

Eclectic Ellapu - Pink -12 days of Christmas
A Gem Of A Challenge - #159 Anything Christmas
Crafty Friends Challenge - Challenge #21 Anything Goes
My Time To Craft - Challenge #311

Thanks so much for stopping by my friends!  Happy Holidays!

And the Grinch, with his Grinch-feet ice cold in the snow, stood puzzling and puzzling, how could it be so? It came without ribbons. It came without tags. It came without packages, boxes or bags. And he puzzled and puzzled 'till his puzzler was sore. Then the Grinch thought of something he hadn't before. What if Christmas, he thought, doesn't come from a store. What if Christmas, perhaps, means a little bit more.
