Happy Happy Christmas!

Alota-C4C51-Candycane-wm

Hi everyone,

It’s Saturday which means it is time for another challenge with the “Crazies” over on the Crazy 4 Challenges blog. I am the challenge hostess this month and this week the challenge was a sketch challenge.

This week is also sponsor week and our sponsor for our challenge is ….. Alota Rubber Stamps.

anewlogo1 Alota released a number of Christmas themed stamps earlier in the month so I decided to use one of those for my card this week … I just love this huge Candy Cane, the sentiment is also a brand new stamp and is called “Happy Happy Christmas”.
