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!

October gave a party;
The leaves by hundreds came -
The Chestnuts, Oaks, and Maples,
And leaves of every name.
The Sunshine spread a carpet,
And everything was grand,
Miss Weather led the dancing,
Professor Wind the band.
