I just received an e-mail from McMahon Five Design offering me the Guest Designer spot for their company for the month of January. Did I accept? You bet I did! What an honor for me. Now I will just hope and pray I have the materials on hand to meet their design challenges. Ya'll wish me luck!
I am certain by now that everyone knows the pink ribbons represent Breast Cancer Awareness. There are other colored ribbons that represent different causes. I am listing those causes and their ribbon colors for the month of January.

I rushed to make this card and get it posted by Friday for a "Friday's Challenge" on another blog. Got it done, rushed to site (early Friday afternoon) to see she had already picked winners. Most challenges end later in the day on the day they are due....oh, well. Lesson learned.

A friend of mine, Charlene, had the below verse on her blog Charlene's Card Creations. I asked her if I could repost it here. She told me a friend had sent it to her....so we don't know the origin. If you are the author, thank you. Charlene stated, quite correctly, that it has become politically incorrect to let it be known you are Christian. We are not supposed to even say Merry Christmas any more. No offense to any other religions. You are allowed the freedom in the United States of America to worship in the manner you choose. Allow everyone else the same choice. Jesus is the reason for the season!!
*Twas the month before Christmas*
*Twas the month before Christmas*
*When all through our land,*
*Not a Christian was praying*
*Nor taking a stand.*
*See the PC Police had taken away,*
*The reason for Christmas - no one could say.*
*The children were told by their schools not to sing,*
*About Shepherds and Wise Men and Angels and things.*
*It might hurt people's feelings, the teachers would say*
* December 25th is just a ' Holiday '.*
*Yet the shoppers were ready with cash, checks and credit*
*Pushing folks down to the floor just to get it!*
*CDs from Madonna, an X BOX, an I-pod*
*Something was changing, something quite odd! *
*Retailers promoted Ramadan and Kwanzaa*
*In hopes to sell books by Franken & Fonda..*
*As Targets were hanging their trees upside down*
* At Lowe's the word Christmas - was no where to be found.*
*At K-Mart and Staples and Penny's and Sears*
*You won't hear the word Christmas; it won't touch your ears.*
*Inclusive, sensitive, Di-ver-is-ty*
*Are words that were used to intimidate me.*
*Now Daschle, Now Darden, Now Sharpton, Wolf Blitzen*
*On Boxer, on Rather, on Kerry, on Clinton !*
*At the top of the Senate, there arose such a clatter*
*To eliminate Jesus, in all public matter.*
*And we spoke not a word, as they took away our faith*
* Forbidden to speak of salvation and grace*
*The true Gift of Christmas was exchanged and discarded*
*The reason for the season, stopped before it started.*
*So as you celebrate 'Winter Break' under your 'Dream Tree'*
*Sipping your Starbucks, listen to me.*
*Choose your words carefully, choose what you say*
*Shout MERRY CHRISTMAS ,
Not Happy Holiday !*
Please, all Christians join together and
Wish everyone you meet during the
Christ is The Reason for the Christ-mas Season!
I am proud to wish everyone a very Merry Christmas!!!!
