Smiling Santa



Hello Everyone.....

The Weekend is over..[.boo hiss]....but the tree is up, all the lights were tested on the floor..all working...popped them up on the tree...added a bauble,bird,butterfly and  angel to every limb on that tree...he's got sparkle and shine in red green and gold...turned the lights on...NOTHING!!..now come on...why does this happen??

It has to be a loose bulb...but which one, there is 500 lights on this tree and some are buried deep inside by the trunk and wrapped around the branches...so disappointing.

But I will get over it, and fix the problem....in the meantime, lets check out this weeks card and sponsor for MAKE IT MONDAY ...



Dustin Pike freebie...or it was..of Santa and reindeer ..

Coloured with copics and pencils, glossy boots and reindeer nose, glittered trim on Santa.....and a border sticker of felt flowers and leaves...papers from Rosies Studio.



A close up.....



A side view.....I didn't crop this, as I had red berries in my garden and wanted to show them off..lol..

The reason your lights don't work Chrissy is due to a well known phenomenon called Sod's law no amount of preparation can overcome this!! However your card is beautifully prepared and just so Christmassy, love all the flowers! Have a good week and good luck with the blasted lights, Susan xx

Such a great card and the image is fabulous... it's a 'feel good' and 'make me smile' kind of image.

I think there's a built-in sensor in tree lights that knows when they're on the floor (and then they work) and when they're on the tree (when they fail to - just to make your life miserable!).

Still, a great card to cheer us up again - love the poinsettias!

Chrissy, I love your cards and this Santa is soooooo cute!!! The side view with the berries in your garden is fab and your POTW is terrific. That elf looks like he is having the time of his life lol. Have a great week! Hugs

Pia S said...

I think you've used a fun Santa and Rudolph image for this card! And I can spot some machine stitching on here too- it makes such a great frame for the image:) The border of flowers is a great detail!

MiniOwner said...

Hi Chrissy

Gorgeous Christmas card, such a sweet looking santa. I love the added sparkle.

Your POTW looks beautiful, I think the pearls are perfect.

Michelle :o)

Lisa M said...

I love that I read your posts backwards, it's like seeing the future. I know that the lights work NOW, but LOL...what a fiasco. At least you test them first. Nothing like pulling a Griswold once they're all up! Your card is DASHING with awesome applique embellishments and that little glittery reindeer nose. Your POTW makes the two cards like peas in a pod! ADORABLE!!
hugs to you again,
Lisa xx
