Dec 25

Happy Thursday and thanks for taking the time to visit the charmed life blog.  We got our outside window wreaths put up today. They are the type that have led lights on them and work from batteries. I noticed on one of them that some of the lights are dim and one or two don't come on. If anyone knows if these type lights can be replaced let me know.

They are Bethlehem Lights wreaths that I purchased from QVC a couple of years ago. I looked on  their but they did have any info about replacement bulbs. Any help would be appreciated.

So onto my card for today. I made this one for the "ways to use it" challenge on Splitcoaststampers. We were to use a "faux letterpress" technique with our embossing folder. I inked up one side of my folder and placed my cardstock in. I used bashful blue ink because I wanted a soft background.

I was happy with how it turned out. My tree image is from a Christmas patterned paper pack from DCWV. I did some fussy cutting and placed it on my card. I punched a mini tag and used some Stampin-Up rub-ons for the "Dec 25" sentiment. The gold cord is "memory cord" that Betty Wright gave me a heads-up on.

To complete my card I added some green and red ribbon. And I have another Christmas card finished and this one is flat for mailing. How nice is that!!

Well, its late and I have a busy day tomorrow so until next time.......God Bless

  4. Simply gorgeous! What a wonderful card for Christmas. Love the tag too.
    Don't know what to tell you about the wreaths except maybe try to change out all the lights with another string and battery.

  9. This is absolutely gorgeous! Amazing job on cutting the tree!! The whole card is just beautiful!
    We just hung some led lights on our house and they had replacement bulbs w/ them. You might want to pull a bulb out of yours and take it with you to the stores to see what you can find. Since these are becoming more popular, I would think replacement bulbs would be available.

  10. This is Soo Pretty Pretty! I love the embossed BG and your Lovely Christmas Tree. The Sweet little Tag is just the Perfect touch too! Love this! Thanks so much for playing along with us at Stamps R Us! 8-)
