Christmas Spotlight

Half the weekend is gone already. The Christmas Pageant was on today, the 8oth year since it was started. Hubby went into town to meet up with our son and the 3 grandchildren and I headed to the other side of town to meet up with friends at the Papercraft and Quilting Show. It was good to catch up with the others even though some of the time we were all split up wandering around the different stalls. We had lunch together and then went back and checked out a few of the things we missed the first time around and then left about 2.30 p.m. to come back home. It was a good day even though my feet and knees were a bit sore later in the day.
We are dog sitting as well tonight so there are 4 dogs sleeping in the laundry!!!
It's again very late here so will quickly share my card.
Here it is......using the spotlight technique

Blue card from stash
SP from Kaisercraft 6x6 paper pad called Utopia Collection
Image is from SU clear stamp set called "Tidings of Joy"
Sentiment from same set
