    Nice set up (did you place all those lights by hand I wonder?). Can I add my card to this thread rather than start another, I'd just spent a hour or so making it and it seems appropriate to place it here on a thread called Merry Christmas.

    Perhaps we can all put our LW made cards here, in the spirit of goodwill to all men (women, children, cats, dogs and anyone else we care about).

    Nice card djw! I like your font treatment - is that a standard font or something you did? And yes I did place all those lights by hand. I went the Luxigon route but couldn't get them to work in 2015 so just said, screw it, placed them myself.

    Yeah, you think you'll do something the clever way and in the end do it by hand just to get it done. The snow on the font was added in Photoshop.
