The real meaning of Christmas

For today's Christmas Card Club challenge Christine has asked us to make religious cards. She says:

'I thought we could visit the true meaning of Christmas this time.  In the midst of all the shopping and parties and hustle and bustle etc I think we sometimes need to just take a step back and consider what Christmas is really all about. But we can still have fun at the same time.'

I've made three cards from Hunkydory supplies, featuring the wise men. These cards look so much better in real life - photos aren't that good, but had to take them in a hurry yesterday before my card sale.

This third card actually has another wise man underneath the first one, on the inside of the card, but didn't take a photo:

  1. Hi Hazel. These are such beautiful cards. I have been very tempted with this set because of the rich colours of the gorgeous images. My aim was to use the Wise Men stamp I have had for many years - but it hid itself away and I only came across it again last night! Love and hugs Christine xx
