The Reason For The Season

Hi Blog Friends. Sometimes I think in all the hustle and bustle at this time of the year, and all the razzamatazz of presents and decorations etc, the true meaning of Christmas is forgotten. Maybe we need to step back and take a minute to reflect.

Click on image to enlarge picture.

Some of my Christmas cards were quite simple, like this one. I computer generated the sentiment then used different colour ways, different dies and different shaped cards to make them all slightly different . A little cheating maybe but when you make so many you  do what you have to do to speed up the process.

We haven't had any more snow today but still have yesterdays lying on the ground and the roads are treacherous. No gritting on our country roads I'm afraid.

So keep warm everybody and have a good day. Christine xx

Hallo Jacqui
wat een mooi kaart heb je gemaakt met een mooi spreuk.
Ik ben helemaal met je eens we staan weining stil wat er op de wereld gebeurt.
We hebben allemaal haast en druk met ons zelf.

Good evening Christine, beautiful card, I love the total simplicity of it.
I agree, the true meaning of Christmas definitely gets lost along the way.

I totally agree christine. I have made a project due to be shown monday showing the true meaning of christmas. Your card sure shows what it is really about and also about family and loved ones not jsut money. Your card is stunning! I must apologise for not commenting as often as I can on your blog. I have been busy at home, personal life and with my DT Projects. I always get round to it but just wanted to apologise lol. Hugs xxx

Blimey Christine - I didn't realise you had snow there - we have been lucky so far and have had a little bit of sunshine!!! I am now making some simple cards to send and I just love this one, it looks really classy and chic.
