Candy Cane Perch


This is a short and sweet post today, as i need to get uploaded before a couple of challenges finish and because i'm not sleeping very well, so am feeling a little jet lagged !!

Now i love bear images and as i have only made 1 other Xmas card this year so far, i thought i would have a play - I've used 1 of my all time favourite paper companys Doodlebug and i also found in my stash a couple of candy cane brads that were screaming to be used !!
