May Arts Christmas Card Hop

Welcome Hoppers!
Christmas cards are so fun, the play on colors and themes. One of my most favorite things about the Christmas season is the music from my favorite classics by Bing Crosby to singing carols at church. Music clearly inspired my card today.
As I am the BIGGEST procrastinator of all time making Christmas cards for all my friends and family, in the busiest time of year, is something I always aspire to do but have never been able to finish in a timely manner.  So this year I will set a more attainable goal...I will make tags for gifts and use Christmas cards as thank yous. And I will move my goal of a family and friends newsletter and handcrafted card to another holiday like groundhogs day or wear a fake mustache day. Done I feel better already.
As for now you can see this is one of the cards that I will be using for thank you card this coming season.
