Candy Canes

Hello lovely people,

With just 1 week to go until the big day I think it's going to be wall to wall Christmas on my blog until then as I have a few Christmas projects I haven't shared yet.

Today we have a new 'Any Image' challenge on The Ribbon Girl blog so you can create any project you wish as long as you include an image on it.
As always, there are several fab prizes up for grabs.

You can find the list of all the gorgeous goodies I used from The Ribbon Girl at the end of my post.

Cosy Christmas card in red and grey with candy cane fairy


This stamp was a present from a lovely crafting buddy last year and I am soooo ashamed that this is the first time I've got round to using it, especially as I absolutely adore it.

I have given her the Inktense pencil treatment :-)

I had the perfect little charm to go with this image and then added some festive looking foliage and flowers.
