Waltzingmouse Christmas Card Challenge - February - Hearts

Have you been playing along with the Waltzingmouse Christmas Card Challenge?  This is an opportunity to make a few Christmas cards each month so that you won’t be in a panic come December.  It's also a great way to get some inspiration for how to put good use to those Waltzingmouse stamps.  We all know that December brings enough panic making preparations and gift buying without adding the pressure of having to make 50 cards in one month, so why not get started today?  You can see the latest challenge and get more information here.


Here's the good part - prizes are to be had and you can start joining the challenges any time you like - meaning if you're like me and didn't get to the February challenge until April - that's ok.  Post your project in April and link it up to the Gallery and leave a comment in the forum so other visitors can check it out!
February's challenge was to incorporate a heart into your project.   I stamped the striped candies from "Candy Jar Christmas Fillers" and die cut them into heart shapes to go along with  the "Candy Wagon" image.  The hard part for me was deciding if I like it better in red or green.  I'll let you decide.

  
 Have a great day!

Jeanne

I love both versions of this card Jeanne, favorite is the red one, just because I love red for Christmas cards. The neat band and label remind me of Santa's belt and I love those candy candy hearts!

Jeanne, this is another one of your amazing cards and then you made two of them. The red is my favorite even though green is my favorite color. I love that you used the candy wagon for Christmas, just so genius!
