Curtain Call Inspiration Challenge - Candy Cane

And me, without a single candy cane - stamp or die!!

I did find a little candy cane left over from Christmas 2013 in one of the grandkids stockings when I hung them by the fireplace last weekend. I made the mistake of not throwing it away immediately...

   Tom: "Hey! I didn't know they made gummy candy canes!" 
   Me: "Please tell me you didn't eat that."

Never let a little thing like not having supplies hold you back - I am heretofore done buying [for the year! =]

I can't stop playing with the newest Mama Elephant dies... this time I left the window/door closed but placed a slip of vellum on the back to look like frosted glass.  I like the result... what do you think?

Yuck to the old candy cane! lol But that's guy for you! I love your window card Michele! The vellum works so well in the window giving that frosty look. I love the wreath too and your red ribbon works great for a substitute for the candy cane. Yep, this is a beautiful card with that little touch of red! Hugs, Brenda

Candy canes are over-rated. I like this much better. In fact, I adore it in all it's gorgeousness.

This is absolutely stunning. I just love the vellum, and the pop of red in all that stark white.
