Christmas is coming -- See companion website!

Hop on over to CardMonkey's companion blogsite, to see the 100 cards being made as we Countdown Til Christmas.
The blogsite is:
Instructions for the card at left:
After mounting sub-frames of red, green and white cardstock atop a 5 x 6.5" premade card, I cut a candy cane from gleaming red cardstock. In this case, I used a candy cane found in the User's Gallery of "Make the Cut."
I then wrapped the candy cane in red/white striped baker's twine that I purchased recently. I found the twine in red/white, green/white, brown/white and blue/white, and bought cones of each at a reasonable price. (It works out to $0.005/yard -- a half-a penny per yard! To compare, when Martha Stewart was selling baker's twine, she was selling 60 yards for $3.98 MSRP. That's six-and-a-half cents per yard! That product has been discontinued, though.) The sentiment was cut from Cricut's "Joys of the Season" cartridge.
