Candy Canes for Merry Monday

Happy Sunday!

I hope you all had a nice day yesterday ........ I take it all back what I said about hubby.  He may not have chosen my Valentines card himself but ..... these were all down to him .....

Gorgeous aren't they!  I even got lunch out ..... so I had a lovely day!

On to the crafty stuff ..... it's that time of the week again for my little bit of festive cheer ........ it's the Merry Monday's Christmas Card challenge.
This week it's all about Candy Canes .....

Not something I have a lot of in my Christmas stash I'm afraid ..... but here's this week's entry

Very CAS ..... I love white on white .... and I found some of the required Candy Canes

I die cut the letters .... 2 of each, from plain white card stock, and layered them together for more depth

I attached them across the centre(ish) of a piece of white card and stamped the word 'Christmas' underneath ..... from the SU stamp set Endless Wishes.

I stamped my little Candy Canes twice onto a separate piece of card and coloured them using Copic Markers.
I then fussy cut them .... one the whole image, and just the bow from the second one.  These were then layered together and attached to the card using foam pads ..... so cute!

You know I had to decorate the inside too .....

Well ... that's it from me for today ........ short and sweet.  We've got family and friends coming round for a Sunday lunch and I really should be in the kitchen with my domestic goddess hat on, and not sat here in my PJ's!
We're having smoked salmon to start, followed by traditional roast sirloin of beef with all the trimmings. New York cheesecake with mixed berries and cream for dessert, or cheese and biscuits. I'd better get a move on ...... the vegetables won't prepare themselves! (Maybe one more coffee first though)

Thanks for popping by ..... enjoy your Sunday!

Cheerio until next time
