Christmas Gumballs

Let's hear it for sweet treats!

Did you get candy for Christmas?  My cousin always sends a box of candy from the shop where my mom worked part-time as a teenager.  A sentimental gift for sure.  She always sends her gifts out early, and I'm always running late.  Since the candy comes early in the month of December, this card doubles as a thank you and Christmas card.   In keeping with the Christmas theme for challenges, I used green paper and think this fits the December holiday occasion category.

In my software program, I layered the jar on top of the thank you paper and printed it out with a white border.  I adhered this to the gumball paper which I had printed out separately, and then placed the layers onto a green cardstock card. (I love that the card stock name is "gumball green"--a perfect backdrop for Kris' gumballs.)

Products Used:
Imagine That! digis by Kris:  Jars of Cheer and Sweet Tooth Papers
Stampin' Up Gumball green paper

Hello, I am a first time visitor to your delightful blog. I love it, you are such an inspiration. I have loads of photos of my first granddaughter in my scrap-albums, but my second sweetie's photos are still in a box. I need a good kick in the bottom to get me going and your blog might be the kick start that I need. I have found that creative women feed off of one another . . . by sharing their ideas. I am your newest follower. Please come visit. I am celebrating my three year blogging birthday with a Give-A-Way, come put your name in the hat. Happy to meet you.
Your new blogging sister,
Connie :)
