Holy Christmas Cards

At Christmas I always like to send a religious card to my Parents and Aunties, have been making them today and thought I would share them here too, looks like this will be the style too for my Grandchildren to give to their teachers, or maybe make them a calender, I'm wondering why we dont see so many religious Christmas cards now? its nice to Celebrate the true meaning of Christmas and to give a little reminder to our children of what Christmas is really all about.
