Fairy Lights

Hi there, over at 52 {Christmas} Card Throwdown the challenge is to use fairy lights on your card this week. I didn't really have anything useful and my imagination had run out of steam to try and even create some fairy lights myself. So, off I went to look for some digi stamps.

I ended up at Mo's Digital Pencil. What an amazing artist she is. There are some really beautiful designs over there. I decided on a digi called Ho Ho Whoa.

This really reminds me of us (well, Dad) at Christmas getting all the decorations out and stacks of lights to put up around the house. The only difference being that we wouldn't be wearing Ugg boots and a jumper. Way too hot for that here at Christmas. We have the air-con going and end up in the pool or at the beach.

Here is my card -


I have printed Mr Ho Ho Whoa onto Blender paper and then simply used my Stampin' Write markers to colour him in. The sentiment is from my Petite Pairs set.


I would also like to enter this card into the challenge over at
Totally Paper Craft where the challenge is Christmas - 9 weeks and counting

Thanks so much for looking xx

  2. Really like this image, looks a bit like my husband, though he'd not be seen dead in a pair of Ug boots , he always gets out the Christmas lights and boxes of decorations! Really fun image and beautifully coloured Kylie. Thanks for being one of our 'regulars' at 52 CCT
