Cute card and I like this stamp. I love the twinkle lights all around them. That paper you used is great. Me and Christmas lights do not get along when trying to put them on a tree. I keep saying that one year I will purchase a tree that has lights on it. Once again, a very cute card. [Bunny]

whoa! Your little huggers are beyond adorable in this scene, Sue, especially with the one whose eye is checking out the hugger. LOL At least, I prefer to think of them as hugging tightly in the lights to stay warm LOL Your bright colors always bring out the cheerfulness in my heart, and this one REALLY is festive in so many ways with the holographic papers, fun tree lights in the background, and beautifully colored HM image. LOVE IT! hugs, de

Ha ha....that looks like us! We broke down 2 years ago, and bought a pre-lit small tree, since we never have anyone here at Christmas. If those lights ever quit working, we'll probably buy another tree!!! Great card, as always, Sue - thanks for the smiles!!!
