Festive Friday 9/23

Good morning and welcome to another edition of Festive Fridays. If you are new to us, sit back, grab a cup of coffee, relax and enjoy some wonderful Christmas Cards. Yes, I did say Christmas...Festive Fridays will be every other Friday with samples of Christmas cards. This way, you can be making your cards all year long and you will avoid the mad rush when you could be enjoying the Christmas Season. You should have just come from Amanda. If you stumbled upon this post you can go back to Terri and start at the beginning. There is also a complete list of the Festive Friday hop on the left sidebar under the Festive Fridays blinkie in case you get lost along the way.
Today I've got a simple card for you.
The paper and ribbon was from my Christmas stash
The mint is cut out of some Christmas fabric and I added some glitter glue to sparkle it up a bit.  I also added some glitter glue randomly to the stick candy canes and pop dotted a few of the mint candies to give a little 3d affect.  This was super easy and took maybe 5 minutes to complete.  I love having these simple cards on hand for a "Oh I need a quick card for the maillady or the newspaper guy"

Again, I didn't use a cricut or E-craft at all this time.  Sometimes simple is best.

I hope you liked my Festive Friday card and hope to see you back in two weeks for another Christmas card.  Now head on over to Angela and check out what she has for you.
