The Reason

Hi and welcome to October!!  It's time for another challenge from Crafty Hazelnut's Christmas Challenge Extra.  You have all month long to play along and you can create anything you want as long as it is Christmas related.  Our sponsor is Bugaboo Stamps and the winner will receive 7 images of their choice.  Here is my inspiration card for you:
After seeing this image, my oldest daughter said she now knows what grinning from ear to ear means.  And then she said she thought Mary probably was grinning like this when she held the baby Jesus; she's so smart!
I hope you will get a chance to play along with us, we're definitely getting closer to Christmas now!

Stamps: Bugaboo Stamps "AKV Nativity-Mother and Child" digi; Verve "Richly Blessed" sentiments
Dies: MFT "Blueprints 13" stitched rectangle; PTI "Fancy Flakes"; Verve "Classy Labels mini" and "Flag It!"
