None of us is born thinking we are ordinary. Feeling special is an essential part of the human birthright. If you don’t think you are special, you won’t seek to contribute your gift to the world. -Rabbi Shmuley Boteach

Here comes Santa Claus!

Oh look, yet another Christmas TV special! How touching to have the meaning of Christmas brought to us by cola, fast food, and beer.... Who'd have ever guessed that product consumption, popular entertainment, and spirituality would mix so harmoniously?

Good morning ...
I bring you just another card made from scraps and a recycled Christmas card. Not one of my favorites, but was good experience using the a layered technique that is popular with stamps.

Size 5 x 7

Card stock from The Paper Studio
Oval dies from Spellbinders
Sentiment from "Holiday Sentiments" from Hampton Arts

Star is a partial stamp from "A Christmas Nativity" by JRL Designs then painted with gold Smooch
