Santa's riding the City Sidewalks

Just dropping in to say hello to my friends, family and followers!

I'm digging out some current Close To My Heart holiday paper to make a few cards before the season totally overwhelms me.  This one is a tri-fold shutter card pattern, combining with some Red Shimmer Trim and some bling.

The paper is called "City Sidewalks," and it coordinates with the digital-only Cricut cartridge that had been sold by CTMH. Had been?  Yup, it's sold out. And there are only 16 more days to get your holiday papers too, as the Holiday Expressions catalog retires on 12/31 and ... YES! ... that means a new catalog is around the corner.

Would YOU like to receive a Seasonal Expressions CTMH catalog?  Just leave a comment here with a way for me to contact you to get your address, and I'll send one right out to you.  WAIT until you see the new products -- papers, stamps, AND more!

Welcome to the Original Disney Pixar Blog Hop
Disney and crafting are a magical combination, and we are so happy you joined us to day for this blog hop.  Some of the crafters participating in this event have been doing this together since 2011!  Over the years the hop has grown but one thing has always stayed the same . . . amazing crafting projects that feature your favorite characters from Disney and Pixar movies.

Here's my project:
It's almost Christmas (eeeek, how did that happen!!?), so I decided to make a Mickey Christmas card for a favorite Disney-freak. Did you know that Cricut has added some sweet Christmas in Disney images to their Cricut Design Space shop?
I purchased the two images -- Mickey on the ladder and the Cozy Pluto -- and cut / pieced the images, using my Cricut Explore, for my side-step card.  The Christmas tree is also from Cricut Design Space ("Access").  The sentiment I stamped using a retired font stamp set from Close To My Heart and Ruby Exclusive Ink.
