Sending Candy Cane Kisses!

Hello!  I feel like I am on my way now to getting my Christmas cards made.  At least, I have got a good start going.  Yesterday, was my day to get the Saturday share card made to go in the mail.  Instead of just making the one to send to Debbie, I went ahead and made 4 more for me.  I would have made more but I only found enough cardstock in the color I needed to make the four.  You will have to wait until Saturday to see that one.  Today's card I made 4 total.  And again, I did not make more than the four because I didn't have more of the ribbon I used.  When you see my card, you will understand why this particular ribbon is perfect and a substitute would not work!  Speaking of my card, I guess I should show you ... enjoy!

See the ribbon?  It matches perfectly!  The sketch I used is another one of the "go to" favorites.  In the sketch there is a ribbon bow where I have the snowflake.  But, I did not have enough ribbon to make a bow.  I tried adding twine but it just didn't work, so I was thinking, it seemed a little bare, but it would be fine.  Overnight, I had a thought ... how about a snowflake in that area to replace the bow?  OMG, can you say perfect?!! I think it is crazy how you can add one small element to totally complete a card!  You really cannot see it in the pic, but there is clear glitter on her boot tops, her mittens, and her hat.  What do you think?  Love the card?  I do!
