Lonely This Christmas?

I've officially made a total of three, yes count them, 1-2-3, Christmas cards so far this year. I mean to tell you, I'm on the ball!!  Ummm, speaking of that...here is the latest (blushes).
We're opening up another linky party over at Make It Monday and this is the card I'm subjecting everyone to over there..LOL! Oh those poor innocent bystanders.   This hysterical image is from our newest sponsor Dr. Digi's House of Stamps (check them out on Facebook too) and taking center stage is the one and only Lonely This Christmas.  I couldn't find an adequate sentiment fitting enough for this scene so I've typed up my own on the PC.
We'd love for you to join us over at Make It Monday and while you're there, please check out the other outrageously comical cards from my teammates. 
Now for my....
I found this card very striking. It has a CAS feel to it, but there's really quite a challenge behind it all.  Skye completed this card using a square punch and I love the outcome. What a sensational Christmas card with a beautifully decorated tree!
Thank you so much for sharing this with us at Make It Monday Skye :)
 
Thank you so much for stopping in and all your terrific comments :)
Hugs n' Happy Stamping,
Lisa xx

Hello Q
Gosh you do bring digi images to life with your colour work, your embossed bg sets the scene; did you use a diffuser for the two looks?
Topping the trees with frosty blobs to represent the snow is terrific.
You are way ahead of me Q with the Christmas cards I have made the total number of 1!!!!!!
Smiles:)

Hihi, what a a fun image and hilarious sentiment, impressed that it's your own too! I think the die cut trees make a fab background for your image, and I like the red and white details for the rest of your card - my favorite Christmas colors!

I'm a bit slow, it took me a minute to get but I get it now, lol! Should have got it straight away, knowing you, lol!

Fantastic card Lisa, love your colouring.

Your POTW is a gorgeous card, love the clever use of papers to create the tree.

Michelle :o)

Lisa S. said...

Ummmm....what on earth are we gonna do with you L2? Naughty girl hehehe. I think Alison said it best, that's a very impressive carrot. ;) You are way ahead of me too on the Christmas card count and if I see one more Christmas Counter or Countdown to Christmas I might just melt. Panic is setting in officially. :) Love your POTW and how Skye used a square punch to create that fab tree. Clever indeed!
Have an awesome week,
L1

Reminds me of Stripes... we have ways of making you talk.. I think that was a zuchinni.. hmmm .. Now you know why gonzo is my fave muppet! What a hoot you silly girl! Love your snowy trees and that fab background.

Lori said...

I thought that sentiment was yours - no one else could come up with something so zany (and wonderful)! This card is so striking with the images against those dark green trees!

Holly said...

oh what a chuckle I got from your sentiment and your coloring on this is so great - I love how you shaded the snowman. Very fun card!

Tracy said...

LOL I DO NOT even want to know where your mind was going with that sentiment girl. :-) Love your frosty trees and the great shading on the snowman. Hugs! H

Sandy said...

Good Gosh Child - you are so funny!! I don't know where you get the time to make all the delightful creations you do -- you must be horribly organized or you have your kids chained to the house doing chores. I know your daughter can cook. Really Lisa - creativity must drip from your fingers. I know you can write.

Margaret said...

Oh the places your mind takes us... In spite of the...um...edgy sentiment, this really is a beautiful card! From the sparkly snow covered trees to the beautiful red bow, this is quite a wonderful card and you have a whopping 3 made now!!! I could be evil and tell you how many I have, but then I wouldn't be a very good friend would I?! As crafty as you are, I have no doubt that you will have an amazing set of cards made in time for spreading Christmas cheer!

Bettina L. said...

This is amazing work again Lisa. Oh I am a teeny weeny bit jealous of your talent. You bring so much life to all your images with your stunning colouring and I love what you did with those threes as well. Beautiful embossed background too. Have a brilliant day. Hugs Bettina xx
