MERRY & bright

Good morning and happy Monday!  We spent the weekend getting our Christmas decorations out, which always sparks all sorts of memories of Christmases past and it seems a shame the house is only filled with twinkle lights for a month.  My hubby was putting lights on the house, so I decided to string up my own lights - paper style!  I know these are really ornaments, but they look so fun as lights too, don't you think?  I stamped the lights in Colorbox Warm Red and Lime Pastel and then cut them out with one of the Very Merry Outlines Dies and hung them on the Curly Border Die string.  I used the MERRY die that comes with the Very Merry Stamp Set and then stamped the rest of the sentiment in Brilliance Graphite Black on vellum.

Thanks so much for stopping by today!  I hope you will hop on over to the TE Store and check out these fun products.
