El Dia de Reyes Blog Hop


Welcome to the 3rd annual Dia de Reyes Blog Hop. If you've come from Esther's Blog, you're on the right track but if you've happened here by chance, go back to Gaby's Blog and you'll learn something about this happy day as celebrated in Latin cultures and why this day is so very special to her.  I hear there may be some prizes, too.  (Just sayin'.) My original plan this year was to use a traditional image of the 3 Wise Men but when I saw this hilarious image We Three Geese by Rick St Dennis, I just couldn't resist.   I printed them several times, colored them with Copics and fussy cut and layered them inside a window created with my Nesties Labels 4.  The star was cut with my Cricut from Very Merry Tags.


I blinged them up (they're Kings, after all) with all sorts of adhesive gems and added peel off corners to the embossed top mat.  Kinda wonder what's in that bottle.  Frankincense and myrrh?  (BTW, my hubby bought some of that stuff and if you ask me, it's overrated but probably beats the heck out of stable smell.  LOL)  OOps, I digress.


I hope you find the sentiment humorous and not offensive.  Again, I couldn't resist.  I also hope my Spanish speaking viewers understand it.  Se dice "Toque la bocina si amas a Jesus". (Sorry I can't add the accent with my keyboard.) So off you go to Patty's Blog to see what wonderful project she has in store and in case you get lost, here's the entire blog line up.  Enjoy!

  8. BTW, The frankincense and myrrh were used to prepare bodies for burial. These were given to Jesus because his purpose for living was to one day die for our sins. So even as he was just a young child, his burial was paid for, and since then, our sins have been paid for. <<>>
