This little light of mine.

Come on over and join us. :) 

Sorry about the pictures...I am losing the light so much quicker these days and not remembering that fact yet. :P I will try and retake them in better light. 

Stitchy Bear is our sponsor this week and, I am using their Christmas Lantern. I love it colored up in non-tradional Christmas colors. I know that the bright pink and green are just versions of red and green but I still thinks its cool and different. :) 

I colored the image up with my Prismacolor pencils. I Glossy Accented the glass in the lantern. I wish now that I had colored it in yellow to emulate the light but it's too late now. I used my Shapeabilities Labels 8 dies to create a mat for my main image. The solid card stock is Stampin' Up's Gable Green and Garden Green. The designer papers are Holly Jolly by Cosmo Cricket. The little gems are from the Michaels Dollar Spot. 

On the inside, I used my favorite 'unknown maker' holiday stamp set. I inked it up with Versafine Black Onyx ink. Thought this sentiment was perfect for the image! 

Thanks for looking! I hope this finds you happy and healthy.
