Merry Monday 145:

Happy Monday all!!  I hope you enjoyed your weekend and got some crafting time in.  

This week at Merry Monday, Wendy has chosen the theme of using a CANDY CANE on your Christmas card:



This one was a challenge for me - apparently I don't own anything with candy canes.  NO stamps, NO papers, NO nothing.  Then I found this chipboard candy cane that I have had in my stash for years and years (probably 6 + years) and thought - yippeee!!  Now *this* I can work with!  I love to give an old stash a new purpose!

The candy cane is from atd Christmas Party chipboard stickers (absolutely no link available).  I also used Paper Smooches Christmas Words 2 wise dies for the pink sentiment.  I finished it all off with a simple bow with American Crafts twine and added some stitching.  Bingo-bango - done!



As always, do not forget to check out the rest of my teamies' fantastic creations at Merry Monday and come play along too!!!
