Default Christmas Joy

Each year I make both "holiday" and "Christmas" cards for all our family and friends, depending on the recipient's religious inclinations. Some are much less so, others VERY focused on the true, Christian origin and meaning of Christmas.

I have lots of holiday stamps (snowmen, snowflakes, santas, reindeer, trees). I have a fair number of Christian Christmas images (nativity, holy family, Christmas star). What I'm missing is the religious sentiments. I'd love any suggestions that you might have, but I'm most specifically wanting sentiments that really focus on Joy. Not just the word itself, but the whole "feel" of quiet but almost overwhelming sense of elation at the fact that Christ was born on that special night expressed in a sentiment stamp.

I know you ladies (and gentlemen!) have favorites - pass them my way please!

Thanks in advance!

Our Daily Bread Designs stamps have some lovely Christian sentiments. Here is just one of their sets, but if you look at all the other sets, I'm sure you will find others that will be suitable. Check out their Gallery too - it's awe inspiring and will give you more of an idea of what size the sentiments are on your average card.

Also check out Verve Stamps. Here is one set called 'Richly Blessed' which is really beautiful.

Hope this helps
