Is it too early for Christmas?

My husband and I enjoy Sunday afternoon drives and not long ago we noticed a few homes with Christmas lights still up…then I pointed out we can’t say “still” because after June 25th, we are officially on the downhill slide toward the holidays = Now we should consider these merry folk “EARLY” with their decorating! So I’m just helping you get a jump on the holidays and help you create some lovely greeting cards EARLY with the Big Shot August Special and the Bright & Beautiful stamp set and framelits:
