Christmas Card Club Challenge # 2

Good morning to you all on this very cold and frosty day.  We have been lucky so far with very little snow here, but I hope the Scottish Posse, as Ang calls you, are managing to get around safely if you need to.

Time for another card for the Christmas Card Club.  It was my turn to host the challenge this time and I wanted to see something which reflected the true meaning of Christmas.  I love cute cards as much as anyone, ( I certainly make plenty as you know) but I think the true meaning tends to get lost amongst all the hype and commercialism.

My Card



I decided to make a CAS card using a digi image from Floppy Latte.  I chopped it down a little and changed the sentiment to one I computer generated.  As you can see it was just matted onto some black card before attaching to the base card.  Simple but effective.

Hope everybody is well and enjoying the weekend.

Christine, firstly - thanks for this particular Challenge theme, as I totally agree with your expressed thoughts. Loved the way you interpreted the challenge with the 3 Wisemen. It certainly reminds us what the reason that we celebrate at this time of the year, and the world needs to remember this! TFS & Hugs.
