One More Christmas for July...well, Aug 1st!

 One last Christmas in July  ~~ well into August 1st!  Hee hee    

Conie Fong has so many adorable digi bundles for Christmas/holiday projects and Molly's Winter Friends is just perfect for some winter/holiday crafting:  Christmas, anniversaries, birthdays, or just saying hello!  

These two just seemed the perfect friends!  I've combined Reindeer Lights and Christmas Lights Gnome  from Conie Fong to pair up this 'enlightening' duo for a fun Christmas card.  I used my Cricut Design Space to set up this card and actually did a Print and Cut for the tree behind them.  I printed it in a very light green and then put the texture in over with various Green Copics!  

I colored up the lights with gel pens and embellished the tree.  

Be sure to visit the the Conie Fong FB Page for challenges and images:  Conie Fong FaceBook Challenge.  There are different challenges: one for coloring and one for completed projects! 

 Material List:  
Digi and Sentiment: Reindeer Lights from Conie Fong
Copic Markers
Gel Pens
 White Paper from stash colored with inks
Bo Bunny Double Dot Gems
Inks Ranger Vintage Photo and CTMH New England Ivy
Cricut Access:  Christmas Light Border #MC76B255 from Christmas Elements; Christmas Tree added with Print and Cut #M8EEE94F from Very Merry Tags
