Countdown to Christmas..............No its not to early!

In my corner of the world my friends and family all think that I am the crazy Christmas lady.
Personally I think that I am the grown result of parents that didn't leave the tree up long enough.
Christmas isn't just a week or two in our house.
My tree goes up on the first Saturday of November, and no I do not care if Halloween was the Friday night before. 
The preparations for Christmas happen all year long.
One of my favorite Christmas activities that I indulge in all year long is the making of Christmas cards. 
Last Christmas I was even fortunate enough to have several people buy my cards to give out to their family and friends.
I was so excited when I went to a friends house and saw two of my cards on her mantle.
One of course was mailed by me.
The other was a gift she had received from another friend.

I made this card this week using the sweet Christmas Angel from Saturated Canary.
Iam in love with all of Kristas designs both Digital and Rubber.
I coloured her up with Copics.
I embellished with pearls and papers flowers and the large glitter snowflake sticker.
The papers are from Bo Bunny.
Iam going to enter her in the http://www.onecrazystamper.com Anything goes challenge.
I wonder how many other Christmas cards there will be lol.
Also in case any of you were wondering there is 295 more Days till Christmas!
Seems like a long time but it does tend to sneak up on even us Christmas stalkers. 


  1. Great card and what a great idea to get started on those never ending Christmas cards! Thanks for playing with us at One Crazy Stamper and good luck in the challenge!

You should check out some of the Rudolph Day challenges & there's another one I can get the name for you, if you're interested. This is a great card! Congrats on somebody buying your cards too. That always helps towards buying more stash . Bet it was a wonderful feeling to see your 'other' card on your friend's mantle. Good job! Hugs
