Hello everyone!  It's time again for another challenge from the Christmas Crafts All Year Round gals.  I know I usually post on the first of the month, but I had just returned from my work trip to Washington state, and didn't have time to create anything before I left or when I got back.  SO ANYWAY, here is my card for the FOOD/DRINK challenge:

I decided to use this adorable Bugaboo image called Candy Cane Mouse.  I mean, what is more quintessential than a candy cane for Christmas?  Granted, it doesn't make much of a meal, but it's a nice treat!
I colored the image with alcohol markers, and added some sparkle with Stickles.  The patterned paper comes from the Seasons Greetings 6x6 paper pad from Love Nicole.  All colored card stock is by Recollections.  The sentiment comes form the Sweet Christmas Wishes set by Recollections, and I thought it paired perfectly with this cute mouse and his candy cane!
