Eeeek!! Dare I Say It????

... dare I NOT??? Okay ... so, it's TRUE!! Christmas is just TWO MONTHS away!! Aaaack!!! Didn't we JUST DO Christmas??? I think my husband finally took the lights off the house about 8 weeks ago ... sigh ... time to get EXCITED!!

Sooo ... here's a little Christmas card to gear us (ME up!!)!! The combo of red/black/white makes it easy for me to like this one ... somehow, that combo of colors almost ALWAYS looks good, no matter WHAT you do with it!!

I'm actually gearing up for our annual Halloween Carnival at the elementary school (yeah-yeah-yeah ... I don't have ANY kids that age any more, but I can't seem to tear myself away from helping pull it together year after year!)!! We have costumes, a cake walk, costume contest, pumpkin and cake decorating contests, trick or treat doors, spooky stories, carnival-type games, professional photos, a spook alley and DINNER!! It's such a fun event. I love watching the kids (AND their families!) have such a great time together! And Halloween IS my fave ... but I have to get ready to switch gears since I DO allow myself to start listening to Christmas tunes the day AFTER Halloween ... it's TRUE!! I decided 3-4 weeks is just NOT enough time to listen to all the stuff I have accumulated over the years!!

Stamps: Tag It, Gorgeous Grunge
Paper: Very Vanilla, Cherry Cobbler, Basic Black, Modern Medley DSP
Ink: Whisper White
Accessories: Chalk Talk, Cherry Cobbler Baker's Twine, Northern Flurry Textured Impressions Embossing Folder, Victoria Crochet Trim, Whisper White Embossing Powder, Rhinestone Basics

I actually used this card as my sample for last Friday's Free for All Challenge over on SCS (and, to be honest, it is one of the few cards from the Convention Display boards that I had made that never found their way to my blog!)! I called the challenge "Tag-a-licous!" and the challenge was to put a tag of some sort on each creation ... easy enough!

Happy Thursday, Peeps!
