Christmas Bug: Make glowing lights and stars

Make glowing lights and stars

Christmas Bug is a fun stamp set from Stamping Bella that looks like I wish my car did on the day I bring home my tree – I want a sunroof for it to peek out of! Alas, I don’t have one, but it’s a lot of fun to dream while coloring! Watch the video below or click HERE to see it in HD on YouTube.

  8. Great art, Sandy! I have enjoyed this video so much! It reminded me of my dad’s car in Cuba (that he still has), and when we used to go to pick up the (tropical) Christmas tree when I was a kid; even though we did it at daytime, the moon here reminds me of all the people back then that were not allowed to put up their own, nor celebrate Christmas because of the government regulations, and they only celebrated it in the
