i used the gorgeous current cardabilities sketch (#111) to help arrange my card:
i've still got a little stash of hambly paper and transparencies that i'm not so much hoarding as using judiciously. but then, i'm pretty sure that's what all hoarders think, isn't it? (uh oh.) the amazing miss stephanie who knows me very well indeed-- and yet still likes me, bless her!-- has helped to increase it this year, so it may be a while yet before i really feel the absence of that fine company, but it's still quite sad when something fab reaches an ending, don't you think? on the other hand, it's all the more reason to enjoy and appreciate good things while they last! i knew i wanted to use one of the VERY realistic candy canes (they are actually twisted strands of some sort of high-end plastic and thus quite lightweight!) that my lovely friend ros sent me a year or two ago, and when i found the hambly holiday paper with the candy jars, it seemed like the perfect match!
