I finally broke out my Banners for Christmas Stamp Set! I decided I wanted to use the candy cane. I like that two candy canes can form a heart, but you have to reverse one. So, I decided to just cut the other side from a rose red piece of CS. I think it works. I added snowflakes to the plain chocolate chip background. I thought I was finished when I looked around for the X to fulfill the alphabet challenge. So, I found 4. Can you?

X-cellent for Letter X. Love the candy cane heart! Into my favs to save that idea. Love the snowflakes and sequins which show up nicely on the brown. I see X's in the snowflakes! I also see one in the die-cut banner. The cute X's you doodled in the corners remind me of all the cross-stitching I used to do. Lots of X's. I like the flowing banner. X-tra special Christmas card. No deadline, so you are not late at all. Well done. TFS

Wonderful Christmas card. Yes, I see your four x's but I first thought the x was represented by your beautiful snowflakes. Great idea for the candy cane heart - before opening the image I could see there were candy canes and thought, "oh! You could cross the candy canes to make an x that way!" Cute Christmas card.

Oh Sally, what a fun and oh-so-creative Christmas card this is. I would never have thought to put two candy canes together like this, and I just love the effect; especially, with this wonderful sentiment banner! I am appreciating the unique colors you have used on this card too! You have done an x-ceptional job on making such a wonderful card for the letter X alphabet challenge my friend! Hugs! ~Karen.
