Do you hear what I hear?


Christmas time has come again...and along with it are the songs of Christmas.  I think that if you start thinking of those melodies, you are going to start humming the march of the Nutcracker Suite. Once it's in your head, it's hard to get it out again!  I remember my parents scraping up the money to take us to see the ballet. We sat in the very last row of the theater. But that didn't bother us.  We dressed up and enjoyed the performance.  So, get inspired by the Nutcracker Suite/song/story/melody today.

I love the wonderful music of the Nutcracker but have never seen the ballet!! Guess I should put that on my Bucket List!

Your cards are fabulous, Dawn!!

Carma said...

What fun...and now it will be in my head all day. :) Both cards are great but I especially like how you cut out the Sugar Plum Fairy and popped her up. (I have no idea how many times I've seen The Nutcracker since dd was in it at least 5 or 6 times.)
