I am having a lovely couple of days off work at the moment and trying to get organised for Christmas...not sure I'm succeeding all that well!
Anyway, it's time for a new challenge at Crafty Little Fairies and our theme this week is...
So we are looking for stripes of white and another colour, usually red, or maybe some actual candy canes on your creation. I had to rummage for quite some time for something suitable before I remembered some Christmas DP I had left over from 2 years ago. It was one of my favourite DPs and there were only scraps left so I had to be quite creative in using them.
This theme was the perfect excuse to use one of the Saturated Canary images that I got on a CD ROM with a magazine because she has a candy cane! And she is just adorable and fabulous fun to colour up :-)
I'm enjoying making different fancy fold cards at the moment so did a stepper design here; it's great because once the panels are stitched and layered they don't need a lot of embellishment. I did break out my new holly vine die which I have been waiting for the right card to use!
