Nailed It!

Happy Friday!
I hope your week has gone well! I have been a day off all week so it's not surprising this is late...I truly thought it was Thursday. Ack!! Anyway, I have a fun little Christmas card that pretty much sums up my week... a tangled mess! 

This was a lot of fun to make. It took a little engineering w/ the light string image but I think it accurately represents what has surely happened to us all at one time or another. And if I could have gotten away w/ it, I would have totally left them like this & called it a day. This tangled mess of lights is one reason my tree is now one of those that comes w/ lights already on it, lol. I used a stamp a ma jig to position the light string into the chaotic mess it is then colored it & added the plug on the side. I stamped just a few pine branches & 1 ornament to give the impression of the unlit tree off to the side. The greeting was made up of little die cut letters. 
Here's a look at the inside & below it are the Copics I used. 
Thanks so much for stopping by! Have a great weekend & Happy Father's Day to all you Dads!

What a fun card, Julie! Love that tangled mess of lights. I think everyone can relate!! We too have a tree with the lights attached, for that very reason. Great card!
