Is it too early?

Good morning fellow crafty gals. Enjoying your weekend I hope! :)
I'm enjoying another day off so you'll hear no complaints from me. In fact I'll be taking advantage of this and holing myself up in the craft room to finish up some projects I need to get done. That brings me to my question... is it too early to start listening to Christmas music? I'm thinking not, especially since I seem to be working on a lot of holiday cards lately. Normally I'm a work in quiet kind of girl but for Christmas music I think I can make an exception. ;)
So today's card features another slightly altered Gorjuss girl. This is Little Goth Girl but I removed her skull barrette before stamping and drew in some long sleeves. Not so gothy looking now I think... :) And can you believe there is no pattern paper on this?! I'm tellin' ya I shocked myself with that one, I love my pretty papers LOL!
Thanks for stopping by today, I'll chat with y'all again tomorrow. Supply list:
cardstock- Bazzill and GP
stamps- Sugar Nellie (Little Goth Girl Gorjuss Girl) Inkadinkado (Christmas tags) Autumn Leaves (Christmas flourishes)

Gorjuss card! I have the Little Goth Girl stamp too and don't really like the skull barette. Are you able to post a tutorial on how you take off an element on a stamp and repair the empty spot? I would be very interested in this!

Lovely card! I watch Christmas movies all year long, so I don't see why you can't listen to Christmas music whenever you want!! :-)Traci
