I made this for the Fan Club Christmas Challenge! Iíve been having so much fun being a part of the challenge this year & the bonus is Iíll have a bunch of Christmas cards finished in plenty of time for Christmas this year.
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. A while back, I saw one of those hand drawn joke cards w/ this idea & thought I could create something similar.
Thanks so much for looking. Closeups & Copic colors are on my blog: The Write Stuff

Haha! Ah, yes, Julie, haven't we all been here?!?! I love your masterful arrangement of tangled lights and even the wall plug. What a fabulous card for this challenge, and I LOVE the sentiment! Haha! Wonderfully done, and you've made us all chuckle. We too purchased a tree with lights, and it sure makes life easier. This is going to be a hit to whomever receives to. Hugs, sweet friend! xoxo
