Basket of Candy Canes

      It's time for our mid-month reminder at Jan's Digi Stamps and the challenge will run until Sunday, January 3.  Our theme is always "Anything Goes" and you may use images from any company.  However, if you do use a Jan's Digi Stamps image, your entry goes into a separate draw just for entries which used JDS.

     Here's my DT card featuring one of Jan's newest sets (and it's ON SALE until Christmas!) called Candy Cane Basket.  This time, I've used the pre-colored image in the set and I've merged one of the sentiments so that it printed as part of the image.

     This image brings back childhood memories of a round, wicker basket which sat on a table near the front door and during the Christmas season, it was always filled with candy canes.  It was so hard not to sneak one out of the basket for secret eating when nobody was looking but they were there for friends and family who stopped by.  Even the mail man or other delivery people who brought packages were rewarded with a candy cane treat from the basket.  If there were any left on Christmas Eve, they were taken from the basket and put on the tree.  If Santa didn't eat them instead of his cookies, then good little children could have one from the tree after Christmas dinner.  

     Thank you, Jan, for bringing back such delightful memories.  :-D
