Candy Cane Perch

Real quick before I get into my card.....my good friend Dawn pointed out yesterday that I shouldn't be complaining *too* much about the rain and cold here in PA because at least it's not SNOW like she's having up there in Canada. Know what, she's right.....so today I'm putting on my big girl panties and thanking my lucky stars that it's NOT snow. Thanks for straightening me out, girl. {smile}



I wanted to make something with this sweet Candy Cane Perch image...another adorable Penny Black...and you KNOW I love Penny Black. It's stamped on Neenah White, colored with Prisma pencils, blended with Gamsol, and I added some Frosted Lace and Candy Cane Stickles to highlight the berries, mittens, candy cane, hat and snow. The main panel is up on foam tape. The sentiment is from the Jolly Follies clear set, also available at Stamper's Dream.

Such a sweet card and image! You are truly an inspiration! And your friend is right, rain trumps snow any day!! The snow finally melted yesterday in my part of Canada and I'm hoping it stays away now for at least a month!

What a sweet image and card! I love how you punched out a space for the bow. Its been cold and miserable here in WI too. Not a very nice fall. This weekend was warm, but I was inside working all weekend, so I didn't get to enjoy it.
