Christmas Tunes

It's beginning to look...dare I say it?! It's hard to believe it's already October. The days are getting shorter, here in the Black Hills. And Christmas decor is starting to make it's appearance in all the retail stores. Personally, I hate the way retailers rush the seasons. But there is some validity to getting a head start on your holiday projects -- like Christmas cards! 

I've been making handmade Christmas cards since I became a Close To My Heart consultant, eight years ago. And it's one of my favorite things to do. This stamp set features lyrics from a few classic Christmas songs. I used Rocking Around the Christmas Tree for this rustic, log cabin card.

I used our NEW You Are Here Cricut cartridge (have you seen this set?) to create the cozy log cabin. I added some shimmer on the cabin with our clear shimmer brush. The made the stars on the tree twinkle with some Bitty Bling.

I cut a tiny (1 1/2) wreath using the Flower Market cartridge; I think it adds just the right touch to my cabin :)
