Christmas Lights

Good Morning! I finally made some time yesterday to make a couple of cards.  I think my last post was a little bit confusing, as some of you thought I am taking a break from card making, it's actually just a break from my linky parties, still plan on making cards when I can. 

When I saw the  new challenge at Allsorts is "Christmas Lights" I knew I wanted to color up this cute image :-) 


I stamped it onto xpress it blending card and colored with copic markers. Stickles glitter was applied to the lights.
An old cuttlebug embossing folder was used for the white background. To finish off the card I tied some gold cord around the card front.

 A little close up below...
The cute cats stamp is from the Penny Black set "Deck the Halls", which I have available brand new in my Etsy shop if you're interested. Sentiment is from the set "Holiday Snippets". 

As mentioned above I am playing along in this week's Allsorts challenge where the theme is "Christmas Lights". Also playing along in this month's Penny Black Saturday Challenge where the theme is Christmas or Winter. 

And that is all I have for today, the second card I made is for the Penny Black and More challenge reminder and I will show you that at a later time, but in the meantime why don't you come play along with us over there (link on my side bar)...we some some really great prizes and not many entrants so far, so there are really good chances to win!! 

Hope you stay warm and enjoy your Sunday!

I thought you were just going to take a blog break for the holidays as most bloggers do. I will be doing that again this year as viewership is always so low during the holidays it's not worth even posting. LOVE this Christmas Card. The sparkle on the lights is so pretty.
