MTTCC #65 Cute Christmas Theme DT card for 21 July 2023

 Welcome to Becca's Heart for Creativity blog! If you've visited my blog before, you know that I love creating Christmas cards! Christmas is a bittersweet day for me for a couple of reasons in the past 14+ years. I love Christmas because we recognize it as Jesus' birth. However 14 1/2 years ago, my dad died at 10:06pm Christmas Day. Then recently a younger first cousin Dan who was born on Christmas Day in 1966 was found dead on May 1. We just had a celebration of his life on June 24. Family gatherings as a young child were a bit confusing for a few years when Dan would receive more presents than everyone else. Besides his parents, my aunt and her husband would give them double gifts, so would our grandmother, my parents, our other uncle, and our/my other aunt. Ok. Enough reminiscing.
