Monday Montage #178

Fa-la-la-la-laaaaa-la-la-la-la!! Yep ... it happened! I am in Christmas mode. I have even put up my Christmas tree and decor ... something I have NEVER EVER done prior to Thanksgiving IN MY LIFE!! This year has just been too much! I was definitely in need of some "joyful and trimphant" feelings, so I just went straight from Halloween decor to Christmas decor ... and I don't even care!! We are having FOUR people at our table for Thanksgiving this year ... FOUR! I am ok with it because we are doing our best to try to stay safe from all the pandemic-dom ... but I feel even less bad now about skipping over my Thanksgiving decor. Thanks to it being time to play with the Monday Montage girls, I went full-on jingle bells with my card!

Cheryl (Curtis ... as in one of my fellow MM girls and my BFF) is out of town. She had a Stampin' Up order arrive and asked if I would run over to her house and get it off the porch for her, which I did. She said I could "play" with her toys if I wanted to, so I did!! Aren't these jingley bells SO MUCH FUN??!?? The detail on the dies is BEAUTIFUL!

Paper: Very Vanilla, Shady Spruce, Mossy Meadow, Plaid Tidings DSP, Copper Foil DSP

This past week has been much too much! We lost my dear uncle last Monday due to complications from diabetes/strokes AND Covid. On Saturday, we lost his sweet sister after a long illness. So my mom has lost TWO siblings in ONE week! UGH!! I am happy for them and the reunion they are having in Heaven with their parents and siblings and other family members who have been gone for years. Sigh ... I am ok, honestly. But it is just a bit overwhelming due to every dang thing else that has been happening!
