Lovely lanterns


Well we didn' get nearly as much done at the weekend as we had planned. The decorations are all done and it looks very festive now. I need to get the cards sorted and written today and maybe make some more tags. I would like to get the presents wrapped this week then we are all sorted. I have hubby's card to make this week too, his is usually the last one I make.

I do love lampposts and lanterns and the Card-io set will be useful for more than just Christmas cards. I used 2 from the branch set and hung my lanterns. I used a Copic for the inside of the lantern and a yellow stamp pad for added glow outside them. The sentiment is Lawn Fawn.

Challenges
The Ribbon Girl a card 
Simon Says anything goes 
Allsorts CAS 
Winter Wonderland frame it or night scene 
Penny Black and more at Allsorts black, white plus one

We are off out for a meal tonight with some friends we haven't sen for ages. Trying somewhere new so hope we all like it.

Marianne you are so organised. My tree is up but not decorated yet, no one wants to help me! :(
It will have to wait till my day off.
Most of my presents aren't even bought but I have done about 97% of my Christmas cards and they've gone in the post. Whoop!

I love your lantern stamps and the inking. A lovely festive card.

Hugs Erika. x
