High Hopes Challenge 90

This is my second post for today.  I thought I would put this card on now in case I don't get a chance later tonight or tomorrow and then I would be too late to enter the challenge.  I have had this stamp for a little while, but was waiting until Christmas to use it for present filler ideas.  I didn't know that there was a challenge blog for these stamps until this week and I thought I would maybe give it a go.  I am entering my card into the High Hopes # 90 Challenge. However, I was going to make the present I had in mind to go with the card as a set but I can't get any candy canes yet.  I suppose it is still a bit early as I was going to make snowman soup.  Marshmallows, a hot chocolate sachet and a candy cane in a little cello bag with either a bag topper or scrunched and tied with ribbon.  Oh well, will definitely get them made for Christmas, but not for the challenge.

Love this snowman- he's just perfect for the snowman soup recipe. Great papers - the colours are so cheery. Your snowman matches perfectly. I'd say quite a few gifts will be requested whenever you get your candy canes - maybe you should get working on that while you wait for them.
