Candy Canes for Merry Monday

Good Merry Monday morning.

We're down to the wire.
Are your Christmas cards done?

Mine are, but it's never too early to start on next year's cards.

Or have one on hand for that someone you forgot!


This week Linda is our hostess.

I find that I don't have a lot of candy cane stamps so I started looking
for stamps that had a candy cane on them.

This Paper Sweeties set was a NBUS and I thought a CAS card 
would work really well seeing as Christmas is almost upon us.
And it has a tiny candy cane peeking out of the stocking.

I stamped some stockings and colored with Copics.

A little Polar White Flower Soft made a fluffy cuff.

Quick and easy!

And since I used snippets, I'm off to


I hope you'll put a candy cane on your Christmas card and join us at

Debbie invited me to enter this at the Paper Sweeties December Challenge
Thanks, Debbie.



Thanks for the visit and special thanks for your comments.

Enjoy!

Such a sweet colorful image, Bonnie. Love your pretty dry embossed image at the bottom of your card. All perfectly balanced and CAS. TFS my friend. Hugs, Nancy

Such a crisp clean card in two colours, this is adorable! The dry embossing on the bottom edge balances this card and I love the the texture on the stocking cuff, Beautiful!

Nancy Stislow said...

Bonnie, this is just so cute! Love the fuzz on the stocking and the beautiful embossing on the card base. This is a fantastic CAS card!

Border embossing that looks beautiful. It is a great pride of this elegant card. Beautiful Inspiration.

Indeed! Mine are done and mostly mailed. I have one that needs a gift card, one that needs a letter, and 2 go to my family and my mother complains if she gets a Christmas card this early in the month.

You are right that it is good to have a couple extra on hand. You never know who will surprise you with a card or other holiday acknowledgement.

I like your sweet and simple card. I like the fluffy top to the Christmas sock.

JoAnn said...

Love that adorable stocking. Great CAS card. Love it.

Debbie said...

Bonnie, this card with our little holiday stocking is sweet as can be! I love the CAS design and that beautiful embossing along the bottom of the card! I hope you'll have time to share with us for our December challenge - there's a $100 GC up for grabs this month ;)

Maxine D said...

Beautiful card Bonnie - love the class the embossed base gives to the card.
Blessings

Bobby said...

My cards are done, only because I had leftovers from last year's challenges. So now I'll get a head start by joining you at Merry Monday, Bonnie. I'm surprised this is a NBUS stamp because it's so cute and I love it with the embossing below.

What a sweet card. Can't have too many candy canes at Christmas!

Di said...

Wonderful card Bonnie - I love the CAS look and the image is perfect! I can't find anything with candy canes on here for this week's challenge. Funny enough, I've said to myself in the past I must look for a stamp in readiness as this seems to be an annual Merry Monday theme! :)

Hugs

Jill Norwood said...

Adorable!!!! :)

HolyLise said...

This is adorable! Love the little stocking with the fuzzy top :)

Pat said...

What a pretty stocking with the candy cane Bonnie and looks great on the stitched square with the red in the background and complementary red sentiment. The bit of embossing along the bottom of the card is just perfect with it too. x

Lori said...

Super cute, Bonnie! Love that you have one ready for next year already ;)

Deanne @ Three Trees said...

Adorable! I am the same, I don't have a lot of candy cane crafty stuff. I think that is on my next order :)
