Merry Christmas Candy Canes

Holy cow, it's March already!  Where is the year disappearing to??  I wish I could answer that question, but since I can't, how about a Christmas card?

This is my DT card for Craftyhazelnut's Christmas Extra., so of course the image is from Bugaboo.  I suggest you join in on this challenge, especially if you would love to win $21 worth of Bugaboo images!  This is Poppi Xmas Candycane, and as with all the Poppi images, I love him!  I colored him and fussy cut him out, something I rarely do, so I could pop him on the front of this Silhouette Candy cane card cut file.  You can kinda see the Wink of Stella...every time I say that in my head I think "Stella!" ala "A Street Car Named Desire."  I know, I'm weird!  Anyway, I used Wink of Stella all over the red piece, and the white is shimmer cardstock.  The sentiment is Studio G, stamped in Memento Lady Bug ink.  Poppi's hat is sporting some red Stickles on the berries, and white puffy paint on the brim and pompom.

  14. He really is cute. When I first looked he appeared to be a 'bah humbug' type of penguin, then looked again and saw it wasn't an upside down mouth but a very full tummy. Really cute and the candi canes work well with him. Thanks for playing along with our 'Add a Sentiment' challenge at Winter Wonderland this week, and hope to see you joining us again
