Merry Monday Guest Designer



Merry Monday to you!  I'm thrilled to be Guest Designer today over at Merry Monday Christmas Card Challenge.  The theme this week is to make a Christmas card with Candy Cane(s) on it.


I have to confess, I had a little panic when I saw this, because I didn't think I had any candy cane stamps.  Fortunately, after scouring my index catalogue and then rummaging in my many boxes of Christmas cards, I found this old PSX stamp among my stash.   Don't you just love the look on his face?  I think he's pretty happy that he's got the only candy cane in the house ;)

I sloshed some Distress Inks on the background for the sky, and splattered some water for snow, then coloured his scarf and the candy cane.  A little slosh of grey and a sentiment to ground him (even though he's got wings), and some stitching at the top, and mounted him onto red card.

Pop on over to the Merry Monday blog to see what the Design Team have created, play along, and you'll have added to your Christmas card stash - never a bad thing!

Thanks for having me, girls!
