Cacti Christmas

My girlies have a "special language" with their childhood buds...

some of which involve cacti.

Hence the following card for their family:

stamps: Newton's Nook Designs Cultivated Cacti, Papertrey Ink Sparkle & Shine Holiday Additions, Cardmaking & Papercraft Cosy Christmas sentiment   dies:Simon Says Stamp Greeting Blocks, My Favorite Things Stitched Square

 I combined Christmas lights with cacti...and just like real life...had a heck of a time with one or two light bulbs, but I kept on trucking!!!


The following sketch got this card rolling....

I added a little sparkle with a Sakura Stardust Glitter Pen~

 for the following challenge...

 It's Wednesday guys, and that means...
you're halfway through the week and still surviving!

Yay you!  :)

Thanks for stopping in to see me~
