I know that Christmas is still months away. However, I DO NOT want to be finishing cards the week before Christmas this year. I want to take time to enjoy the little things around the Christmas season and not be rushing to finish. I want to spend time focusing on Jesus - the reason for the season. I want to spend days with my family. I want to make lots of candy and bake delicious treats. I want to have a variety of cards and not just mass produce 100 or more cards that are the same. Want to know a secret? Last year I bought Christmas cards...shhh....
So, lets pull out those Cricut cartridges and get a kickstart to the Christmas season. I personally don't plan to purchase new cartridges this year. Though I may buy a few stamps (G45 has the new "12 Days of Christmas" set), I really want to use up my stash while revisiting some old Cricut cartridges.
I chose Scandinavian Christmas Cards for my first set of Christmas cards because it was a cartridge that I purchased for my mother-in-law a couple of years ago. Her family was originally from Norway and each year we incorporate some Norwegian tradition in our celebrations. Mom went home to Jesus in May and I wanted to share her cartridge with you.
