Winter Wishes

Isn't this little guy so cute? He's called Poppi Xmas Candy Cane, and he's one of Jodie's adorable creations over at Bugaboo. I *LOVE* HIM!!!!!! I colored him with Sharpies and Bics, with a red glitter gel pen for the berries. Cut him out with Nesties and did some sponging while still in the die. The sentiment and snowflake are from a set I got a LONG time ago called Happy Everything. I had been wanting to try pleating ribbon for some time now, and finally did so on this card. The striped DP is from a pack I got at Target last year. The top section is embossed with the Swiss Dots EF. Believe it or not, I am actually entering this card in a few challenges:

Catch The Bug challenge blog: Anything Goes

Jingle Belles: Stars or Stripes forever

Catch The Bug on PCP and CDAC: wet and/or dry embossing

Well, it's late, so I best get to linking, and then to bed! Thanks for visiting! :)
