Simple Gifts

It has been a tragic year for our family, and yet our faith stands firm. My brother loved the holidays and was the first to put out his lights. We had many years of happy holidays and intend to keep that tradition, remembering the many joys.Here he holds a "Santa" Grinch that I made for him years ago (before such items were available. It was his favorite Christmas movie. May we all remember the true spirit of Christmas and carry it in our hearts this season.
This year's card is simple, but I think appropriate. Happy and Joyous holidays to us all! The Image is from Stampendous, and is called "Wisemen". I inked with versamark andheat embosed with metallic bronze powder from Judikins. It is stamped on recollections cardstock.  I used Ribbon from Michael's and mounted it on gold cards from Recollections. I added stickles in burgundy, dark blue , and Christmas Green to their crowns.
