The True Meaning Of Christmas

Good morning, it's time once again for another card for the Christmas Card Club. Sometimes I think that in all the hustle and bustle at Christmas,and all the razzamataz of of presents, decorations, food etc the true meaning of Christmas gets forgotten.  Maybe we just need to take a step back and reflect what Christmas is all about, and what exactly we are celebrating. Since it was my turn to choose the theme I asked the girls  to make a card showing what Christmas really is about.

My Cards

6" square base card
coredinations jade card - stash
backing papers - LOTV (discontinued)
image - Ruth Morehead
sentiment - Hobby house
standard circle die - Spellbinders
gems - stash

6 " square base card
blue card - Rymans
white card - Rymans
linen embossing folder- Crafter's Companion
digi image - in my digi folder
blue candi 

Two more cards done so I'm not doing too badly.  I can't believe that we are well through August now; it's incredible.

My fellow CCC pals will be posting their cards on Sunday but I have another card due then so as usual I am posting a day early.

I'm hoping the weather stays okay because it is the village show today and the WI are doing the teas.  We were asked to do them last year because the lady who usually did them was heavily pregnant. We were victims of our own success and made such a profit for the show that we were asked to take it on again this year.  We did get a very good contribution to our funds so we were happy with that.

Enjoy your weekend.

Take care.
