merry {christmas}

I am ready to pull out my Christmas music cds. I always start with Elvis. DH asks me to wait to play my Christmas music until November 1st. He knows I would play it all year long! He does let me play Michael Crawford's O Holy Night all year long. So Halloween is tomorrow, but I have done the bulk of my online Christmas shopping. Yep, some of my family members will be getting their gifts in the mail in just a few days :) They might as well start enjoying their presents now...Thanksgiving is practically here!

My card was inspired by the current color challenge at BasicGrey challenges. The colors are perfect to open up my new 6x6 BasicGrey Eskimo Kisses paper pad. I was also inspired by Laurie Schmidlin; she recently posted that she loves the looks of copics on kraft card stock. I just had to try it too.

Supplies: BasicGrey Eskimo Kisses, stamps by Magenta and A Muse; Bazzill green card stock; SU! punches, dimensionals, white gel pen and kraft cardstock; and Memento ink.

Yea! Only two more days until Christmas music!! I start listening in early November, too! This is beautiful, June. I wish you lived close so you could teach me how to use copics. You're coloring is always perfectly done! ♥♥ Kay

Wonderful card June and I think the copics on kraft effect looks beautiful, I must give this a try sometime, love the Eskimo Kisses against the Kraft too! I admire your organisation with the Christmas presents, I haven't even thought about it yet, yikes! Thanks for your lovely comment yesterday, I didn't enter my card for Cuttlebug as I hadn't cuttled anything on it and I thought that was a requirement? Have a great weekend, guru of organisation :D. Hugs, Chris

...BUT...

xmas music on november 1st??!?!?? oh noNOnoNONONO. uh-uh. sorry. it's a well known fact, normie, that xmas music may not commence bein' played until *THANKSGIVING*. specifically on the ride home from the in-laws'; since the supreme court's ruling that the ride *TO* the in-laws must be considered "before thanksgiving" since turkey et al had yet to be consumed.

(thank goodness i got here on 11-2...and thus in time to save you from serious error!!!) :) :) :)
