Christmas Beauty

Do any of you out there just love the Christmas Story?  It is one of my favorite classic Christmas movies.  When we were younger my parents would drive us around to look at Christmas lights every year.  We would get in our jammies, snuggle up in blankets in the car, sip our hot cocoa, and listen to Christmas music on the radio while we went scouting for some awesome Christmas lights.  One year we were driving through a neighborhood and a house had a leg lamp in the window instead of a Christmas Tree.  My Dad LOVED it!  He talked about getting one for years but never did.  This year the ol' man turned 50 so my Mom decided it would be fun to suprise him with a leg lamp they could use for Christmas.  I was given the assigment to make him a card and this is what I came up with.  I found the leg lamp picture online and cut it out.  Then I made it look like it was sitting in the window.  My Dad really loved it!  It did turn out pretty cool.

You can't really tell in the picture but there is clear plastic in front to make it look like a window.
