Candy Cane Christmas

Happy Friday!
It's been a mostly hot week here and I'm starting to really look forward to the cooler temps of fall. I think most of the country has had just about enough of being in this easy bake oven called summer.

So think cool thoughts and maybe make a Christmas card or two. I'm showing one of the new releases (tomorrow!) and a couple of favorites. The new one is the Multi Christmas Greeting I used all over the background. I inked it up w/ four colors of Distress inks and stamped it a bunch of times. I had a green tag cut from some earlier project so I stamped the polka dot background on it and added my colored and cut out candy canes. I topped it off w/ a big red velveteen bow and my festive card is finished.

If you haven't checked out our DRS Thursday Challenge, you have plenty of time to enter and you'll be in the drawing for a fab prize! Oh and be sure to drop by tomorrow for all the new release images!

Have a great weekend!

stamps: Christmas Multi Greeting, Candy Canes, Polka Dot Background
