I Hear Those Sleigh Bells Ringing!

What the heck!
Who the hell is thinking about Christmas in August?
 I know I am not thats for sure! I live in Alberta and our summer is just to short to begin with and I try not to think about what is coming up to soon for my liking!
But with so many of the challenges thinking Christmas I decided to play along with them . Now I can say I have my first Christmas card made for 2013!
I used Cricuts A Quilted Christmas cartridge and cut the sleigh at 4 inches. I was able to make this into a shape card by cutting two shadows, scoring one just under the gifts and then joining it together with my ATG gun. How fun is that and I didn't need any fancy tools to do it.
 For the inside of the card I used Joys Life "Oh Christmas" stamp set. 
So thats it for today. I hope you enjoyed my post and if you have any question just give me a shout.

Your card is so lovely, Jenny! And it cut so clean. What is your secret? I have this cart and love it but sometimes all those intricate cuts don't come out.

I should start on some-Christmas will be here in no time!
