For Day Seven, we are proud to have Carly Tee Minner join us. Here is her amazing project:

Hi Everyone! I’m so happy & humbled to be joining the AMAZING designers creating for this event! Talk about some talented makers!!!

I created a silly holiday card, Frosty in a tangle of Christmas lights! But don’t worry, he can explain, LOL!

The Christmas lights were made with a tiny ornament die from the Snow Buddies set, Copic markers, Glossy Accents and a little glitter. I love when I can use a die shape for something different!

Here’s a quick video of my process…

Thanks so much for stopping by and huge thanks to Honey Bee for including me in such a fabulous event!
