Rule of Threes......PPA276, #GDP011



                 



Red and white candy canes are so festive for Christmas. And thanks to the sketch I got to add three of them to my card! It is Christmas card crunch time around here.......I vow to have all my cards done by Thanksgiving......then I swear they will be done by the time the tree goes up the second week of December.........then I promise myself for sure I will finish by my birthday (the 20th)........yes the third time's the charm......


Triple the fun and play along with us at Pals Paper Arts this week!




The Global Design Project has a Christmas theme this week- lots of great ideas there for holiday cards!

Ha! I thought that I was the only one making promises to myself like that...maybe one day we'll surprise ourselves and actually get the holiday cards done by Thanksgiving! :) Love your CAS card today, fabulous!

Linda... such a cute and Happy card! What's more fun than a Candy Cane! right?
Love the foil stripes in the background, and the tiny holly sprigs are adorable. Hugs.

PS: Before I MADE my Christmas cards I can remember dropping them off at the Post Office on Thanksgiving Day weekend! Yeah... right.

Wow, what an adorable card. Just love it! How nice that those Framelits are on sale this week!
(I too make all sorts of primacies about making the cards, have already missed my first deadline!)

I know what you mean with the promises. Those sweet candy canes would beg me to make them into a card!

Mary Fish said...

Sweet cropped candy canes. Very clever, Linda!

Michelle Quinno said...

I guess you're not alone in the promises dept.! I do the same.

This is fantastic! Love your cute candy canes!

Great card, Linda. Love those candy canes... they go so well with the red diagonal vellum. Sweet details add even more shine!

Such a fun and cheerful card, Linda! The stripes in the background really make the candy canes pop. Good luck with meeting your deadline - I mean deadlines :)

Adorable card, Linda! I love how you've placed these candy canes at an angle - so fun! A perfect card for this challenge and for the PPA sketch. Thank you so much for playing along with this week's Christmas Theme challenge with the Global Design Project.

What an awesome and festive card! I love the background and those candy canes! The little golden stars are a perfect touch!!

Linda, this is simply adorable. Candy canes scream fun, holiday, and simpler times. And I am loving your stories of your mom and granddaughter. You had me in stitches the day they were fighting over the munchkins. I know that was insanely challenging for you. I hope the storytelling helps you keep your perspective. You are an amazing daughter and grandma.

Beautiful card Linda! Candy canes just make me smile and they are stunning with the red foil.

I'm scrambling with my Christmas cards this year too. Good luck!
