A Cute Old Man and Some Christmas Lights

Yes, today a cute old man and some Christmas lights are on my kitchen counter. You just never know what is going to be on my counter. Sometimes real people sit on my counter but today it is an adorable, but fictional, old man drawn by Lynne Stansbery and available at Squigglefly (it is called Smile Pretty). I paired him up with a sentiment by Charlene Mitchell called You Light Up My Life. I made this for the latest Squigglefly Challenge (SFC07-14) - Use both a digital image and digital sentiment on your card or other creation.


My easel card is made with a Spellbinders die, The Paper Studio CS, and dp by Creative Inspirations. The string of lights was used on a card over three years ago and were purchased at Michaels but I don't know the producing company. I gave this card to my parents with some boxes of Girl Scout Cookies and they loved it.

Hope you will join us in the challenge - remember there are some really cute freebie images at Squigglefly if you don't have one.

Hugz!

  1. I'll bet your parents likes this card even better than the Girl Scout Cookies and that is hard to accomplish. LOL. Your stash has some real nice papers in it. I think the easel card was perfect for this image and the Christmas lights are the perfect embellishment for this sentiment. Wishing you a fun day. Can;t wait to see what on your counter next time.
