One of my all-time favorite seasonal songs is Sleigh Ride by Leroy Anderson. I have loved it since I was in high school -- simply AGES ago! -- when we played it in Concert Band. What a fun spirited piece!
I know it's retired now, but I love the Sounds of the Season dies because the set included a couple of jingle bell dies, reminding me of Sleigh Ride. I used one of the jingle bells in a pure white cardstock for this card, centering it in the middle of one of the three cute seasonal-flavored hexagons I made using the Beautiful Shapes dies.

I am sure you've seen these cute little origami trees, probably many times, in the past. However, have you ever attempted to make one?

I have some of my work -- prints, bookmarks, and now, for Christmas, ornaments -- for sale at a wonderful little local boutique. All of the ornaments I share with you in this post are in this shop.
For someone with arthritis in her hands, these ornaments are a little difficult for me to make, but the end results make the struggle so worth it.
If you have a couple open ornament dies, you could easily make ornaments like these. After you've looked through a handful of my ornaments, I will give you a photo-full tutorial on how to make the ornaments on your own.
