Heartfelt Creations Wednesday Inspirations Christmas is in my craft room.

It is beginning to look like fall around me but it hardly feels like fall. The temperature yesterday was in the high 70's and it is suppose to reach in the 80's today in Southeastern Michigan. It is time to think about making Christmas Cards. The last two releases from  Heartfelt Creations have been  wonderful for Christmas. Today I have a  project for you could be a card, could be a tag, could be anything you want it to be.... I used paper and stamps from the Season of Joy Collection along with a few of my favorites that will go into the golden vault as of 12/31/13. I hope this inspires you to create a Christmas project.
