Christmas Lights

I'm just about squeezing in under the radar with a very late entry to last Saturday's 52 CCT challenge tonight which is a Christmas Fairy Lights theme and I'm combining it with the new challenge today at Daring Cardmakers which is Let There be Light

A very simply card but I'm really pleased with the bright and cheery colours so may make it again with more colours.  I simply used my old MS christmas lights punch on photo paper and coloured the lights with copics using a white gel pen for the highlights.  Paired with a couple of sentiments from the Wishing You set from There She Goes stamps.

I've actually made two cards tonight - something of a record for me lately ;-)  I'll be back with the other later.


  1. Hello Tara

  7. Love the colors--you're right, they just pop right off the card!

  8. Before plugging your Christmas lights visually observe and inspect them for broken bulbs and defective wires. If there are broken bulbs, replace them with new ones.
