Jingle All the Way

My son Brock has been telling me "Christmas is over" in that distinctive somewhat-monotone voice that many autistic people have. He loves everything about the holiday, but once the packages are opened and enjoyed, he's ready for it to be over. We've managed to pack up most of the decorations (I still have the Israel nativity set out, but it will be put away this week) and our house feels rather bare. 

While Brock was ready, I'm not sure I was. But... my husband would tell you I get a little (okay, a lot) crazy about Christmas and that I'd likely never be ready for it to be over. He has a valid point.

For instance, I made approximately 60 Christmas cards this past few months... but there were stamps I didn't get a chance to use. What's a girl to do? Put the Christmas stamps away, not to be used until next Christmas or go ahead and make some more Christmas cards?

Yep, call me Christmas Crazy!

I just couldn't resist making a card with the cute reindeer stamp.

I discovered the SCS Dirty Dozen Christmas Challenge this year - I don't know how I missed seeing this before... so this is my first card for the monthly challenge. Hopefully I'll remember to make one each month this year.

Thanks for stopping by my blog today!
