Noel for LIM97 & FabFri08

Sunday, December 9, 2012

This week's one layer challenge "in a row" at Less is More worked perfectly for me with the color challenge at Fab Friday.



I spent last night addressing all my Christmas cards and although I had just enough, I'm worried that I may have forgotten someone so I thought it might be a good idea to make a few extras "just in case."  This card is one of those extras!  I like this stamp of lights on a string because it reminds me of the big lights we always had on our tree when I was a kid.  And those lights were always the most improbable colors which is why I thought this fun color challenge was perfect!  This stamp is actually pretty small and I stamped it four times to achieve this look.  I didn't do such a great job of matching up the tails of the light string, but I think it looks ok.

Today I hope to get my Christmas presents wrapped and the last of my decorations up, then it's smooth sailing until the big day!  Thanks for stopping by!

I love all of the white space around those colorful lights!! (I recently sorted out my cards and realized I had one extra - how did we manage to create exactly the right number??!!)

I love these lights Jen and they remind me of lights we had when I was a child too. You sound very organised for Christmas!

You have to stop telling us what you think you did "wrong" because we would NEVER notice if you didn't call it to our attention. Your cards always look PERFECT in EVERY way, and this beauty is no exception. Love those lights and the simplicity of this card.
