CCC and The Real Meaning of Christmas!

Hi Everyone, I hope you are all enjoying the weekend so far.
It's time for us to share another Christmas card for the Friendly Christmas Card Club and this time around the choice of challenge comes from our very own Christine, and wants to see cards made reflecting "The Real Meaning of Christmas".

Now being a Huminist, I found this a wee bit difficult, but my card reflects what I think should be what we should all be striving for, whatever our belief;

Imagination Crafts Stencil and Sparkle Medium in Silver, Gilded Winter First Edition paper, Bow and Gems from my box.

Thank you for the challenge Christine, it made me use this lovely stencil at last, and also the gorgeous sparkly stuff.

That's all from me just now except to say a thank you for all the lovely comments on my last card, you are all so very encouraging,
I would like to enter my card into the following challenge;

Well I think you have certainly hit the spot with this Kate. The sentiment is ideal and I love the stencil you have used. Thanks for taking part in this challenge; even though your views maybe different the sentiment means the same to us all whether Christian or not. Hugs Christine

A lovely stencilled card and a sentiment that is just perfect for the theme this time. It's a pity that more people in this world don't strive for the same things, it would be a better place all round. Love the sparkle medium you have used, it looks gorgeous.

Kate, a beautiful card, and regardless of one's religious beliefs, we can all agree that our world needs more of what you have expressed so marvelously with the words on this card. The silver & black were lovely against the white card too. Great card.
