Sweetest Wishes

Howdy friends!  Happy Saturday to you!  I find myself in a quiet house at the moment, so in between laundry and vacuuming, I decided to come up to the Studio to play for a moment.  As you might know, I'm trying to make 5 Christmas cards each month so come time I already have the stress of that done - oh, and I'm trying to use my stash of stuff which seems to multiply like Gremlins overnight!  So, I visited Nichole's Blog at Papertrey Ink and got inspired once again.  Check it out here.

Here is my version of the card that Betsy did in her video - I'm pretty pleased with how it turned out!

After watching the video, this card came together quickly.  The longest part was the coloring of the candy canes, which I wasn't going to do but I needed more on the card after I looked at it.  So, this makes 1 down for April - 4 more to go!!

Thanks for stopping by today and I hope you get to do something crafty today!

  1. I had great plans of making at least 3 Christmas cards a week starting the first of the year. I have made none. There just seems to be other more urgent things I need to craft. :-( Maybe I will try again starting this week thanks to you.

    LOVE those candy canes!

  2. Love the candy cane card!! The music note background is a nice touch!
