Peace on Earth


Well, 'tis time again to concentrate on creating a time of peace on this earth, so let us all do our best to visualize through prayer or thought (whatever means works best for each of us). I have chosen a primitive theme for my Christmas/Hanukkah or just plain solstice this year and that is because it is so sweet and simple, plain and unencumbered. My lamb above is featured in my Christmas card next to my new Santa below.


Here is Santa holding his damask bag with a Christmas tree and of course a dolly! But the tree is hidden behind her, so alas, there you have it. But you can see a tree in the painting that I did below. (The real one is white and sparkly.)

If you wish to make some cards from my little Santa, just click on the link below it and print onto card stock. Cut a small piece of card stock as a back. I use a 3" wide by 5" long piece of it, and I fold it over, and attach it to the back of the Santa card with a piece of foam core tape. Then write in the body of it.


Merry Christmas, everyone!

Oh, your lamb is very sweet! I think a nice simple and peaceful Christmas is a good idea :) this year, I actually didnt put out all my Christmas things...only what seemed to be needed. Simplicity seems to be the word!
A merry christmas to you and yours!~

You are so sweet allowing us to make cards from your wonderful Santa. Thank you my dear Zwee!

The lamb is wonderful :)

This year I am using lots of greens as usual...but I'm also adding pine cones, acorns and such...I'm very much into the woodland Christmas this year.

Hugs,
Doreen

Simply sweet, both lamb and Santa. I tried to restrain in my simple decor for Christmas this year too.
And it is ever so generous of you to share an early Christmas gift with us, your card is adorable.
Merry Christmas!
