Christmas Again??????

Hi everyone,
As most of you know I was very sick these past weeks with some kind of nasty virus. I learned a valuable lesson it's never to early to be ready for Christmas. OK Betty, I know you are laughing at me because last year at this time I said I can't even think about Christmas. How things have changed.
I purchased more Christmas stamps than I could even use so I will be entering Christmas challenges very early.
This one will be for my brother-in-law's family, I know that because the inside is finished and the envelope is already made out. I will keep these in a special place and will be set the day after Thanksgiving to go to the post office.
Anyone else with me? I know some people are! Checkout this site HERE
This weeks challenge is to CASE a DT member's card so I went back to July and found Peggy's card here
http://christmascardchallenges.blogspot.com/2010/07/2010-christmas-card-challenge-31.html
I really liked the sketch and I was able to use one of my favorite stamps acquired this year from Hobby Lobby, by Rubber Stamped at 40% off of course.
I also used the checkers from the Ribbon set by Gina K. Designs and part of the saying from one of the Heartfelt Creations stamps I have. All my card stock is from Gina K. The DP is from my scrapbooking stash.
I hope you like this one. Have a very happy recovery day :) I hope to keep stamping as it has been several weeks since I've been in here. May be I should clean up my desk first?????
