It's Inspiration Time at Shopping Our Stash!!!

Challenge #381 at Shopping Our Stash is Inspired by a food or beverage label/packaging.  Although I don't have the packaging from my inspiration I have the Blueberry Candy canes that are going on the tree this year. It might be the only thing on the tree since we have a 1 year old kitten that has not seen a Christmas tree yet.....it will be interesting, the lovely blue glass baubles are staying in the box.

I was amazed at how few food related stamps I have , I could have done coffee and birthday cake but I still need more Christmas Cards!!! I used a House   House Designs candy cane stamp and as I said I saw the blueberry candy canes and had to colour these to match...just because I could.

Here is my inspiration picture.
And on to the close up shot.


The candy canes were coloured with spica glitter pens and wink of stella, lots of sparkle IRL.

Because I'm using my blueberry candy canes on the tree I chose the the inside sentiment to match.

Challenges I'm entering:

Jingle Belles Rock ~~ Bring us some Figgy Pudding 

House Mouse & Friends Monday Challenge ~~  Anything Goes or option In the holiday spirit.

Thanks for checking  in today and head to the Main Blog and check out what the rest of the design team have made for the challenge.

Hello, Barb! This is so cute with the blue candy canes! I have not seen them in blue before but I love the colour! Good luck with your tree - you'll have to let me know how the kitty likes it!
