We are so excited to bring you such wonderful inspiration leading you into the holiday season. To start from the beginning of the hop, please visit the Passionately Artistic blog for all the details . . . . otherwise you have come to the next stop in the 12 days of Christmas hop."
And hello there everyone!!! So glad you are visiting on your stop through the hop, or if you are even visiting me directly....love that too. :)
I hope you've been enjoying reading all the wonderful traditions we all share in celebrating this most joyous holiday. I know that I'm looking forward to reading them and getting some great ideas of traditions to start!
Until then, I know that one of my most favorite traditions of the season is bundling the kids up in the car, putting on some soft Christmas music, and going for a drive to see the display of Christmas lights! Whether it be in a neighborhood, park, or in the middle of downtown, I just love it all! I truly relish seeing the kids light up as they excitedly see how proudly, and differently, everyone has displayed their lights. I think I get just as excited as they do! :)
So I decided to make a card featuring this favored tradition....Christmas lights!
Ok, so I only showed one light, but you get the picture! :) And since lights truly sparkle, I just HAD to make my card sparkle with some Silver Rhinestone Swirls bling. I cut my swirl into two pieces to make the appearance that it continued under my raised panel (save on your bling that way!) and I looooove how the swirl still held its shape...just in case you were wondering. :) I also used Silver Rhinestones on my stamped bulb. And since I didn't have the red rhinestones, I simply colored them with my Copics...just a little tip that you can do with your clear ones if you want to stock up on those. :)
My adorable little bulb and sentiment come from Technique Tuesday's set, Good Cheer....I know, I know, I use that set a ton, but it has so many wonderful images to choose from!
Now, I hear that if you leave a comment here, and on all of the participating hoppers blogs, one of us has been chosen to give some FABULOUS blog candy from Want2Scrap! I, personally, would love to hear what your favorite family tradition is. AND....I'll throw in some pretty fabulous candy from myself if you share a tradition AND show me a project you've created from it. How's that sound? Looking forward to reading and seeing!!!
