Fairy Lights...


Ahoy Me Hearty's!
Have spent the past few days entangled in Fairy Lights! It all started when I sent my OH up into the loft to dig out the Xmas decorations (way too cold, damp n' cobwebby for a "lady" to do, plus it meant climbing onto the 2nd rung of the ladder...WOAH!!!) One new set of lights refused to work, one set was dangerously HOT and another set had myseriously shrunk by about10 feet and wouldn't reach round the whole room like they've done every year before !!?? Anyway we're now using up 90% of the National Grids electricity supply, the house looks pretty and the kids are happy!
My card today was a special request for a Scottish themed Xmas card. Using a fab digi from Sassy Cheryl, I've coloured her with ProMarkers, paper-pieced her outfit & used the same DP from the Basic Grey June Bug collection for the background with silver snowflake embellies.

Entering it at -
ABC Christmas - Yuletide (red & green)
Ellephantastic - Red & Green / St Andrew's day
Passion For ProMarkers - Anything Goes
The Secret Crafter - Christmas
Sir Stampalot Challenge - Travel the World

Hi Jane

We've had the same issues at this end with the lights, seems an annual problem even when they were new last year.

Your card is a delight, so vibrant and refreshingly different.

Thank you for sharing your lovely creation with us at Stampalot Challenge this month and good luck.
