May Your Days Be Merry and Bright

 Wow, only 2 more months until Christmas! It is October 25th and that means that it is time for the Magnolia-Licious Christmas all Year Long Blog Hop.
If you have made your way here from Angelique's blog then you are on the right track. If not, you will want to pop back there as she is the first stop along the way.
If you lose your way pop back to the Magnolia Christmas All Year Long Blog for a full list of participants.

For my card today, I have used Lighting Edwin and coloured him with copics in nice bright and cheery colours to match my new MME paperpad. I have added a touch of glossy accents to the little lightbulbs to make them shine and added a soft pink glow around them.

I wanted to make a fun masculine card. The DP is from a MME paper pad called 12 Days of Christmas that I picked up the other week at the local Scrapfest. I have based my card on the sketch from the CLP Challenge. In keeping with the fun decorating theme of the image I have finished it off with a great dotted ribbon and some fun ornament stickers that I have dangled from a diecut swirl.
 I want to thank you for stopping by today. Before you leave, I hope that you will leave a little comment to let me know that you were here. Now it is off to your next stop on the hop Cordine who I am sure will have something gorgeous to share with you.
