I just downloaded this last night, so I have a few hours of cutting and putting this together. It will surely be a conversation piece on my mantel this year!

Díky za krásný betlém, ležím s chřipkou a vystřihováním si krátím dlouhou chvíli

PMK translation from the Czech: Thanks for a beautiful crib. I'm down with the flu, and cutting out—my long time hobby.

It's standing beneath our christmas tree now; love it!

Od letošních Vánoc bude jeden betlém taky na Islandu v Stykkishólmur. :-)

[Now there will be Brandy's Nativity in Stykkishólmur, Iceland.]

Wonderful one, thanks for sharing!

And not Brandy (drink) but Brandýs (town in the Central Bohemian region in the Czech republic)!
The whole advertising is on coffee substitutes (chicory and rye coffee) made in a factory in Brandýs upon Labe/Elbe).
