Santa Lenny Got a Candycane

Today's Ramblings: Good morning. What a beautiful sun-shiney weekend we had. We did a lot of yard work, brought in top soil and finished the flower bed renos. I also bought two gorgeous flower baskets to put on the front step. Now if only that wind would die down.

I made another Christmas card - gotta keep going if I plan to finish 5 a month. This is Christmas card #2 of May.

I started with Lenny Christmas found {here}:


I made a "Joy Fold Card." Helen at ABC Christmas Challenge has a great and easy tutorial and I thought, boy - I really need to see if I can do this. And I did!



And here is the inside:

And it's as thick as a book:Card Ingredients:
StampFairy digi; DCWV papers; Recollections cardstock; Copics; Gelly Roll white pen;
Martha Stewart Mica tinsel glitter; Circle and Beaded Circle Nesties; Dress It Up buttons.


I made Santa Lenny for the following Christmas challenges:


I hope you all have a great to start to your week and I will see you all again on Wednesday.
