Good morning everyone - well the weekend is here again and I do hope you are enjoying the weather (if it's sunny where you are that is!!). This time it's Asha's choice for a Christmas theme and she asked us all to make a card depicting Christmas Lights, this could be tree lights, lamps, lanterns or candles - you know the sort of thing I mean.
Anyway this is the card I made and it looks as if I have really made the lamp stand out by enhancing the yellowy light but, in daylight, it's no where near as dark as this - honest! In fact this is a topper from LOTV and I only added a 'touch' of yellow, plus some Stardust glitter and Glossy Accents.
I do love this Art Pad and I think I will be using it a lot to make some flatter cards for posting. It really was simple to make but I am quite pleased with the finished result.

Graham was doing his four days at work last week and is hoping to carry on decorating the staircase next week. We (the Royal 'We') have had to redecorate the lower part of the staircase and landing because Blossom didn't care for the paper and decided to remove it from the wall with her little needle sharp claws, strip by strip (grrrr)! She did this at night when we were asleep, guess she missed the attention! I've told her she's grounded for a month and she's not allowed to see her 'beau' Donny and all she did was flick her tail in my direction. She knows I'll get fed up of her trampling over my desk and sitting on my cards quicker than she'll get fed up of being grounded!
Oh and from now on she is relegated to sleeping downstairs at night.
Thank you so much for stopping by and reading my blog - and thank you also for any comments you may leave. Enjoy your weekend and hopefully you might have some time for crafting, although if the weather is nice it's lovely to be out and about. Take care of yourselves and again, if you aren't feeling well I wish you a quick and full recovery.
Hugs to you all
