Candy Cane Christmas

Hello everyone!

First of all, I keep forgetting, but a special hello to my new followers, I'm really pleased you could join me and I hope you like my creations :) And a hello to my 'old' followers too of course, thanks for sticking around :)

It's August, people! Can you believe it? Not long now and it will be a year ago since we bought our first house, it feels like we've been living here forever though , soooooooo comfortable! Anyway, a new month obviously also means a new challenge at CCAYR, Tracey's chosen the theme of  "KIDS CHRISTMAS". In other words, make a Christmas themed card for a child. Tracey give us some of her own digis to work with, I've used Candy Cane Oliver. Lovely fella to colour in, love the candy cane too! I've printed out a smaller version of the digi to incorporate in the sentiment inside to tie it in with the rest of the card, which worked out pretty well I think.

I will see you all tomorrow with my first Delightful Challenges DT card, see you then!
