Candy Cane Invitation

This is my favourite time of the year!!! On the eve of December I am sitting here feeling excited with anticipation for all that awaits us in the month ahead.
I just love how a plain everyday space can become so beautiful after being decorated for Christmas, and seeing so many decorations all over town!

I also love all the excitement from my boys as we grow closer to Christmas. I have begun to slowly decorate our house and with every new discovery they make, the more excited they are becoming.
One big recognizable event for our family is the starting of Advent tomorrow. The lighting of a new candle every Sunday is such a nice way to keep in mind the true meaning of Christmas for all of us!!

Next week will be the beginning of our holiday party's. We hold a Candy Cane party which is our holiday kids party :).
We will be getting together with my sister and her family and my mom, eating home made pizzas, candy cane ice cream, candy cane cookies and watching the move Elf with Will Farrell. This movie is by far our family's favourite Christmas movie!!!

I am going to send my niece and nephew an invitation to our party to help get them all excited too!!!
Here is what I came up with:

The background paper is from an old Recollections Christmas paper pad. The cute little candy cane is from the Simply Charmed Cricut cartridge. The sentiment is from the My Pink Stamper, Birthday Crazy stamp set. I added glitter to his little cheeks, and lopped him up on a stitched journaling card I cut with my die from Lawn Fawn. I just love how this invitation turned out!!!

This morning I went to a crop at my church and we had the opportunity to learn how to make this really cool card!! It was fun to create, and I love how it turned out!!

Well I'm off after supper to my first Stampin' up party!! I am having such a crafty day!!! Lol

Thanks for stopping by,

P.S we had such a beautiful sunset tonight, I thought I would share.... So pretty with everything covered in snow!!
