We have some great stamp images to share today as we move through the week of our Child Is Born theme. First up are these two sweet onlookers towards Bethlehem as the star shines brightly in the sky. What a sweet night scene that is colored so beautifully by Alison Heikkila.

Laura Drahozal created this sweet card that was shared last week for our House-Mouse theme, but take a look at the great text background! Even as a backup to the Joyful Noise of mouse and bird, these sentiments shine on their own.
