Merry Christmas, One and All!

For to us a child is born,
To us a son is given,
And the government will be on his shoulders.
And he will be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God,
Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.
Isaiah 9:6

Here's our Christmas card this year. Took me many many hours to put the 90 of them together. But I am very pleased with the result. I got them posted and many of you received them before Christmas! Apologies to my oversea family and friends, yours are probably still in the postal system somewhere. Hopefully, you will get them before we usher in 2008.

The above is the front, un-opened card. When you pull the little tab, labeled "Pull" with a tiny hand drawn arrow, the card opens up as shown below.

Flourished stamp is from the Tim Holtz's Collection by Stampers Anonymous (Summer '07, Supplement 8.1, page 8). The little, round Holiday Hello stamp is by Stampin' Up! The sentiment is by Penny Black. Besides the mechanical part, everything else is pretty straight forward.

That's about all, Folks! Don't forget to take some quiet time today away from the chaos and all the hubbub and reflect on the true meaning of Christmas.

May your Christmas be blessed
With the joy of Christ's Birth.
And your New Year be filled
With His peace.

The Caffreys
