Create: challenge

Hi guys

I wanted to play along with Create: Challenge again today.  This week's theme is Quick & Easy Christmas Cards and I made this little card using Lawn Fawn ''Cozy Christmas' stamps.  Aren't those little lights the cutest?!

I had seen Kelly Marie over at Lawn Fawn colour the little mini lights and then add glossy accents, which I thought looked adorable, so I thought I'd have a play. The little bulbs go so well with this Cosmo Cricket paper, don't you think?  If you look close enough you will see they are really glossy.  They feel like light bulbs too :o)

I also have a little Noel card to share with you today.  My Mum needed a batch of Christmas cards made up, so I went into production (that's what it felt like!) and made these.  I'm not sure they would quite fit into the category of quick and easy because of the colouring, but it is something you can do while watching tv so they actually don't take very long at all once you get into a routine! They were really therapeutic to make as I got to play with my Copics too.

Did I tell you I recently got Copic Certified? 

It doesn't mean I'm any good at it, but at least I now know the techniques to try and learn!!!  Seeing as I've collected a set of them I really ought to try and put them to good use now, huh?!
