Fa La La.....

Hello and good Sunday evening to you. I have a card to share with you using the (almost not) current Paper Smooches Sparks: Cool Shades Challenge. Yep, getting my entry in just under the gun. Story of my life. ;)

the inside....

...and the color challenge:

Nothing like stringing holiday lights around the house for the Christmas season! I stamped and fussy cut the light bulbs in the four colors and the top in some gold glitter paper. (you know, for some sparkle!) After gluing the top to the bulbs, I used a paper piercer to make the holes and strung gold floss through the holes. Adhered with foam squares, stamped the sentiment, and finished the inside. Done! 

Ok, you still have a couple hours to get your entry in. What are you waiting for? LOL! Stay crafty my friends!

Stamps: Paper Smooches - All Yule Need; Christmas Sampler
Ink: Memento - Tuxedo Black, Gray Flannel; Staz On - Jet Black
CS: Recollections (white); American Crafts (green); scraps
DP: DCWV - Mariposa gold glitter paper
Accessories: DMC - gold floss; Paper piercer
Adhesives: SA by 3L - MyStik, 3D foam squares


  1. What a fun idea to string a bunch of holiday lights like a banner! Looks sooo cute, and is such a great use of the color from the challenge. Loving the glittery bulb tops you added. This is really fun and really adorable!

  2. Oh, I love it! Fabulous layout & love the glitter on the bulb 'things' - sockets? Whatever those things are called. lol

  3. Oh, this is good, Chris! Love the fussy cutting and glitter tops!

  4. I'm so glad you got this in under the lights, so to speak, coz it sure is a winner in my book Chris! Fa-la-la festiveness!! Happy Thanksgiving to you and Andy!! Stay safe and I hope the storm isn't too bad where you are. Hugs, Darnell

  5. I did that last night, slid in under the wire on a challenge. Awesome CAS card, great colours too. so many challenges and not enough time.
