Caught up in the Spirit!


Alright, I know that Halloween was just on Wednesday and Thanksgiving is less than 3 weeks away, but out shopping today with my husband, I got in the Christmas Spirit! What the heck?!

I even said to him in Joann's, let's skip decorating the house for Thanksgiving and just go for the Christmas decorations! Where did this come from? Is it that the stores already have their shelves loaded with Christmas items? Was it the Christmas stamps that I bought in A.C. Moore?

Or the Christmas music that I actually heard playing in the toy dept. of Walmart? Whatever it was, I am going to embrace it. To me, Christmas is a magical time of year. Where everyone seems nicer, happier. Where there are smiles on every one's faces. So, this year I for one, am going to get into the spirit just a wee bit early. Who knows maybe it will be contagious. Couldn't we use a little more happiness in this world?

I CASED this card from a card in a swap that I was in that was hosted by my friend Kim. We had to use our favorite finds at the CKC. I loved Colleen's card and just had to case it. Thanks Colleen, your card was awesome!

I feel the Christmas spirit right after Halloween and love it! Where I came from (Philippines) once the month ending with BER ... that means Christmas already. And i still think it's not too early to celebrate it.

Love your card...great CASE-ing =)
