What makes a great Christmas

Is it sitting alone or being with just your family - or maybe invite as many as possibly. 
I don't think there is a right or wrong answer to this question. It may vary from tradition or family to family - or even country to country. I think it is important to look around and see if there is someone feeling lonely - or even forgotten. Can we open our heart and home for them? 
The Christmas message for me is about LOVE. 
Christ, our King, was born in a manger. I think there is a symbol in that: None of us, is above another. Love has no boundry, we must love everyone.
Christmas is not just one evening - it is all year round.


At Beccys place, the challange to day, is "For something a little bit different, try using part of a stamp, allowing some of the design to extend off the page. " 

This was again a difficult challenge. I pondered for a long time, which stamp I could use - until my thoughts began to revolve around my son Jimmy, who now lives in England. He just started a new job. Will he have to work at Christmas? Does he come home and celebrate Christmas with us? From these thoughts, the card was born: I'll be home for Christmas.

  1. Det er et rigtig smukt kort, du har lavet. Elsker det stempel......
    Jeg håber for dig, at din søn kommer hjem til jul. Men en gang skal jo være den første....... og de færreste opnår vist, at tilbringe juleaften med deres børn hvert år. Så finder man nok en anden løsning. Det måtte mine forældre gøre, da jeg første gang var arbejdsramt en juleaften. Jeg havde det fint.....men min mor ! Hun troede jorden gik under......LOL.

    1. Ja, det er et flot stempelsæt Stampin Up har fået sat sammen.
      Jeg er en af de mødre der ELSKER at have familien samlet - men samtidig også forstår at de skal leve deres ejet liv, de skal have lov til at sprede vingerne. De kan være lagt væk i km, men med de medier vi har i dag, gør det let at "snakke" sammen!

  2. What a wonderful card Conny, and I loved reading the story behind it. You did a fabulous job putting all the elements together and I really like the sentiment you added. I hope your son is able to come home for Christmas so you can all be together.
    Cheers,
    Beccy
