Putting Up The Lights ~The Cutting Cafe~

Putting Up The Lights

Oh I am so tickled with this little project! My son built something different with his lego's today and I asked if he learned that from watching something on youtube. And he had. But I told him not to feel bad, that inspiration comes from all sorts of places! The idea for this tall card also came from youtube. I was watching card video's and then when I came across this sentiment in the awesome set called Christmas Daily 2 from The Cutting Cafe...well at that point it all came together! 

I used the Cricut Craft Room (which again will only print and not cut for me, so another hand cut job, argh!) But I just adore how this turned out! Cuts are from Create a Critter. I used color coordinating Stickles for each light bulb. I also white embossed some stars on the background (another inspiration from watching this card tutorial).

And the very fun sentiment! I love how you can get ideas just from reading a the whole concept for this card. But do check out the Christmas Daily sets because there are a ton, and I mean a ton of things here to work with!

Sweet! Thank you for coming by! The kids and I are spending the week at my Mom's. Starting to get things prepared before Thanksgiving dinner. Doing pies together as a family which is great, plus I really need the advice! LOL! I'm the only one that seemed to miss the baking/cooking genes. My poor kids. Hopefully I'll be visiting you soon...see you soon!
