Merry Monday


                                                         Christmas Treats

Hi friends...

Yesterday I decided it was time for me to take the plunge and enter some of my favorite weekly challenges.  I really like the Merry Monday Challenge!  Two reasons:  One... it gives me a chance to break from the Spring and Summer motifs and Two... I get a little head start on Christmas cards.  Oh, and this week, Debbie Henderson is the hostess and she chose to challenge us to make a Christmas card where food is involved.  Well, Ok, so this week, that's 3 reasons :-).  If you'd like to play too, click on this link HERE
to check it out.  It's fun!!!






I knew immediately what I wanted to do.  I've had this yummy stamp from Impression Obsession for several years and it hadn't seen ink in a long time.  It is called "IO Candy Jars".  I stamped it on whisper white with memento tuxedo black and pulled out the copics.  I would have used the new SU blendabilities but I don't have them yet.  The ribbon is from my stash - I thought it fit the card perfectly.  Other than cutting and coloring, I used dots ef and an edge punch to spiffy it up a little.  The sentiment is from Inky Antics called "Penguin Christmas".

I hope you've enjoyed the little break from all the flowers - but, fear not, more flowers are coming your way!!!

Have a Very Merry Wednesday
