Happy Thursday!! So...I'm still working on making Christmas cards...and I'm still having the best time! So, how perfect that, for this week's challenge at Mo's DP2 Challenge Blog, my very clever DT sistah, Elaine, has chosen another theme that fits perfectly with my Christmas-Card-Making efforts!!'s true! Elaine has challenged us to make a paper project ...

 Inspired by a Song

Paaaa rum pum pum pummmm!! So, of course, I chose one of my all time fave Christmas songs...
