Angel Paper Dolls

As Christmas draws near, I thought I would share a video of the beautiful paper doll angels made by fellow artists. This project/swap was hosted by the beautiful Danielle Muller of The Vintage Dragon Fly

I ENCOURAGE you to click on the actual video  (made by Danielle) and ENLARGE to a full screen to see the details on each doll. To find out who made each doll, move your curser over the picture. 

Each of us made 6 identical dolls, and in return we received 6 different angels to hang on our Christmas tree! .

As you are preparing for Christmas remember the precious baby in the manger, and know that the REAL work has already been done for us.

you are so right ...the work is done ... I wish mine was ha

I'll share with you the invite to my grown kids for Christmas Day ...

God inhabits the praises of His people.
He lives and dwells in places where His name is being lifted up.
We were called out of darkness into His marvelous light ...

Christmas ... an announcement for all the world to see a Saviour ... incarnate, born with all the genetic make up of your body and mine ... yet without sin. Praise be to God.

Please join Don and Mom on Christmas Day for a celebration of this announcement ...we lift the name of Jesus high, higher than any other name on earth.
With grateful hearts ♥♥♥ we thank the Father that each of you know and serve Him ... that in itself is GIFT enough for the two of us.

Christmas Day
LUNCH : 12.00 noon

Menu/buffet: TBA

plan to spend the day and or the night(s)

fun will include
leftovers, games, dessert(s), laughter, toys, pictures, memory lane,
good red(s), outdoor fire in the pit, snow playtime☃☃☃ weather permitting,
fellowship all in the name of this man, Jesus.
