Christmas Lights

Hello everyone!

While you are reading this, I will be off on a mystery trip organised by my dear hubby! We started this yearly tradition when we first got together, doing something fun around our anniversary with the other not knowing what until we get there. I think it's really fun in years when I am the one planning and I like it even better if I get whisked away in the year afterwards :) This is our second wedding anniversary, so we are officially a cotton couple ;)

Anyway, I have a Christmas Card to show you, as the new CCAYR monthly challenge is starting on the 1st of June. This time, the theme is "CHRISTMAS LIGHTS"

I really loved the theme, but once I had looked through all my crafty stash I came to the conclusion that I don't have anything with Christmas lights in/on it. So, I just HAD to go shopping for a lovely digi @ Meljen's Designs, such a hardship! I found this crazy moose entangled in Christmas light and thought it would be perfect for this challenge:

I hope you can join us in our challenge, you have the entire month to come up with something really nice, can't wait to see what you make of the challenge!
