Jolly Christmas Cards

When I was a teacher, every classroom had a steady crescendo of noise and excitement in the month of December until Christmas vacation arrived. I'm not sure who was happier to see the vacation, the kids or the teachers. This year four of my grandkids have been out of school since last Friday the 16th. Christmas generates an excitement unmatched by any other holiday. 
I loved this inspiration photo of kids singing at Sparkle Creations Christmas Card Challenge #2  and interpreted it with this first card of kids possibly singing as they danced around the Christmas tree.

 The image came from my oldest, long hoarded Graphic 45 Christmas paper collection, Christmas Emporium.
 To make several other cards quickly I used a similar design with other tags and images from Graphic 45, a strip across the top with fiber, and a few sequins.



 Thanks for visiting. May this season of God's love and joy spill over from your heart to all those around you.

I'm sharing the first card with the following challenges:
