Holiday Happy

Last night hubs and I grabbed a Christmas music cd, and drove to take in a light display near Annapolis. I don't know what it is, but the lights just make me giddy and happy like a kid. That reminded me of this sentiment stamp after I saw the challenge over at Inspired by All the Little Things #34.   






I added a bit of color to the white embossed sentiment using Prismacolor pencils in white for a base and then green and red. A frame was cut to put everything to a better proportion.  The stamp is from Stampin Up.
The graphic is below.  The framed blackboard caught my eye along with the red and green bits.


Here are a few pictures from our drive last night.


These designs are many many many feet tall and wide.  Some of the designs were animated.  I enjoyed it tremendously.  Tonight hubs and I are doing a bit of decorating, not a whole lot since the holidays include travels for both of us.



Thanks so much for stopping by!

  2. Such a great sentiment stamp & love how you used it, Cat! Driving around to see the lights is my favorite childhood memory & they're still my favorite decoration. Hopefully hubby will put ours up in the next few days, but not sure the weather is going to be very cooperative. Enjoy the rest of your weekend, my friend!
