A Candy Cane Christmas

I stamped and coloured both of these images whilst in Florida, they were coloured with my prisma pencils and I really enjoyed spending a bit of time colouring them. I forget the other colouring stuff I have and just reach for my copics but as I didn't have them with me there was no other choice.

Last week Jessica Sprague had the Santa Sleigh full collection for a $1 so I had to get it and both of these papers are from that collection, it is so versatile and I can see me using lots of it.

I made the same card but with different colours for two of my friends, one loves pink and anything girly and the other is more traditional so their cards and colours reflected this.

These are very pretty Amanda and well done for colouring them in. Those are very pretty papers and I can see why you bought them!
One question, did you have a whole cargo plane for your goodies to come home as you seemed to buy loads of stash!
