'Tis the Season! make Christmas cards!!!

Last year, with all my life changes, I didn't get to make Christmas cards, and it was sad :(    This year, I want to mail handmade cards to everyone!!!  AND, I want them all to be different!
Seems like everytime it gets close to the holidays, I find myself buying Christmas stamps.....I have bought SO MANY over the years....and do you know how many are still UN-INKED!  Anyone else have this sickness like I do?   You see a stampset, think....'oh! that will be perfect for my christmas cards!'   and buy it. and it sits....
So I have vowed this year to do my put ink on all those poor sad un-inked Christmas stamps! 
Because here is the first card.  It is for the current MUSE challenge I saw today and knew the PERFECT UNUSED stamp for it!   I got this stamp (the text on the bottom of the card) from Close to my Heart YEARS ago when I was a consultant. Never used until now!


Here is the MUSE card by Laurie Willison
I chose to use the layout of the card to the best of my abilities. 

So....if you are like me and have a million un-inked Christmas stamps.....use them! and blog about it! how fun eh?! let me know if you are up for the challenge ;)  I've got a bunch more cards to blog tonight, so hold on! more to come!
