Now for my Christmas treat....Twinkling Lights!

For this project I knew the exact stamp to make the perfect card. I used a Penny Black stamp from the set Christmas Critters, cardstock and ribbon available at Paper Garden Projects. The little mice are looking at the TWINKLING LIGHT of the lantern.

I then took my Cover-a-card Greenery cling stamp available at Paper Garden Projects and stamped a strip of paper. I used a glass candle holder and wrapped my stamped paper around it and added ribbon and a bow. I added ornaments to my holder and for a perfect centerpiece. Just add a candle or TWINKLING LIGHTS!

Now it's time for your next stop during our garden walk, Lorelie. And don't forget my special holiday treat is TWINKLING LIGHTS : )
