more merriment. . . .

with this cute stamp set from Wplus9.  The string of lights look so much like the old fashioned ones we used years ago.  My dad loved blue lights (must be where I got my love of blue) and would patiently take all of the other colors out of the multi-colored strings and add nothing but blue bulbs.  His trees were always beautiful works of art!!


I colored the lights with Tombow markers and added wink of Stella to them.  The Wplus9 Merry die was cut from DCWV glitter paper and adhered to the vellum strip.  A few tiny gems were sprinkled about for some interest. 


I am sending this card to Simon Says Stamp:  ANYTHING GOES.

Thanks for visiting and, to all of my USA friends, Happy Thanksgiving!

Happy Thanksgiving Joy :) I love your card so much and yes these were the Christmas lights that we always used (call vintage now haha) We always used multi coloured lights but my very favourite was a house or tree done up with all blue lights. Beautiful card Joy! sending you warm wishes, Susanne
