'Tis the Season

I was in a store BEFORE Halloween and yes, there was Christmas music playing. I know that shouldn't surprise me but it seems a bit early. So now we're into November and Christmas, is in fact, just around the corner. It's one of my favorite "seasons" - I do agree that is has become very commercialized, but in the end, I just love the spirit of the season! Religiously, it is an awesome time but I also like the gift giving, the anticipation for the kids, and of course, getting to go home to my parents for that week!

This weeks's Treehouse Thursday Challenge gave me the perfect inspiration to get into the season, even if still a little early! The challenge this week, THT074, is a color challenge - ivory, olive, and another color of your choice. I'm using a stamp that will be released this month. I'll admit I'm not a photoshop digital stamper - I like to print them out and color with my Copics. It is my therapy to be able to color and bring to life the stamps! Here's my card, and I apologize as we've had rain for the past two days here in Dallas and so the lighting doesn't do the card justice! I also used Jen Del Muro's SFYTT from this week - this is one of my favorite sketches and you'll most definitely be seeing this layout again.

Thanks to all who played along with last week's challenge. Head on over to the Treehouse Blog to see who was the lucky winner! Ashley is drawing a winner each week for some Treehouse Bucks so be sure to play along. There are a few rules to help you!
