Christmas light post & playground 271/272

Having no compter (crashed) or proper internet access, using my phone. I couldn't shop around for any suitable Christmas digi stamps, so had to drag out my old Decoupage folder and hope that there was a suitable light post image. Luckily there was, I just used the base image as my topper.

I had already printed out some free backing papers from a card magazine over Christmas, these included some Hunkdory, Crafters Companion and Joanna Sheen. The one i used is from Hunkdory (I think).

Kept it quite simple colour wise, the white card is a snippet from a patterned card turned over which I have used for die cutting in the past. Using sky blue promarker, I coloured in the white snowflake and then stuck a white pearl in the middle.
For a ribbon effect, I cut out the words of the song from the backing paper...another little snippet. 



  1. Perfect card for this challenge Amanda...LOVE it!! Thanks so much for sharing with us at Merry Monday!! :0)

  2. Hi Amanda!

    What a lovely card - perfect for Merry Monday and of course the Playground! Those little cuties are lovely :)

    I did laugh about you doing multiple links - in fact there were only two sitting there - so the third one might still be wandering around the Internet! Tee, hee!
