Snowy Vintage Christmas Cards

" Behold the fowls of the air: for they sow not, neither do they reap, nor gather into barns; yet your heavenly Father feedeth them. Are ye not much better than they?" Matthew 6:26

I found some vintage images that reminded me of that verse above.  I have a thing about birds. I love to watch their antics from my kitchen window. I wonder what they did to ride out the storm and high winds yesterday. I know that Jesus told us told us that God cares for them to teach us of His watch care for us.

Here are two quick Christmas cards I made today with vintage images taken from my Vintage Christmas cd by Memories of a Lifetime. Once again I used the punched snowflakes with either mocha pearls or sparkles from Close To My Heart. Their vintage sentiments are really small so I'll reprint them for you.

This one uses a card background from The Paper Studio. It says, "Health and happiness to you at Christmas."

The next vintage image had red and pink flowers mixed in with holly. I used an older snowflake background from My Mind's Eye. The sentiment says,

Christmas Wish
As countless as
the Snowflakes
May your
blessings be.

Tomorrow I plan to help God a little by spreading birdseed on top of the icy snow.  May He richly bless you during these busy holidays.
