I am so excited to post this card because it’s my favorite of the season. I was driving around last week (I’m sure to or from soccer practice!) and noticed a house with all purple Christmas lights. At first, I thought it was kind of odd. But, then I started to think about purple – it’s the royal color. It’s used at Easter to signify that Jesus is King. Why don’t we use it at Christmas? Isn’t it the reason for the season?
With this card, I wanted to symbolize the night that Jesus was born. I actually have three different blues and a purple on the background. The card “reads” left to right – lightest blue to darkest blue as the night passes, then purple when Jesus is born. I’m not sure it was snowing that night, but that’s how I envision it, so that’s the reason for the snowflakes. The silver spritz on the card adds to the shimmer of the special night.
I chose LOVE as my last sentiment on purpose, closest to the purple, to show that love is what came into the world.
I also played my favorite Christmas song, “What Child is This?” during the video. And I have to admit that I actually got a little teary when I watch the whole thing all the way through before I compressed it for posting!
Have you sent any cards to Jonthan’s Place yet? I sent a package with some of my S’Mores Packs in it this week. Please consider sending some cards… a few abused teenage girls with no parents living in a treatment facility could sure use a little love and encouragement this time of year. Read my post HERE to see how you can help.
Enjoy the video and may you have a happy and peaceful holiday season!!
