The Gospel According to S. Matthew 2:2
The Holy Bible Authorized Version 1611
As I was making this card I kept thinking of the Star of Bethlehem & the Christmas story of Christ's birth.
The last of my Christmas cards - safely delivered this morning. I used the same sparkly Winter Wonderland Embossing Powder that I did here but this time I lost count of how many photos I took in attempting to show its sparkle. The turkey is defrosting but I have presents to wrap & a major catching up of blogland.
With Greetings of the Season
Best Wishes for 2012
