More Christmas in July

I owe a big thank you to all you challenge blogs that have been doing Christmas in July challenges.  It certainly has helped me get a few cards done ahead of time especially since my thought to make at least one Christmas card a week wasn't followed through, anybody else relating to this?

The Cat's Pajamas challenge is to use any TCP stamp that uses any form of transportation.  Lucky for me I have the "Candyland Christmas" set which has a candy train in it.  That worked out well, won't you say.  The only down side is that I have a yearning for a candy cane.  Unfortunately I don't have any around but I do have a pack of Extra Mint Chocolate Chip gum.  It's not as good as having a bowl of Hagen Das or Ben and Jerry's but it'll do in a pinch.  But I digress...

don't forget the inside

Here's the deets:
stamp - The Cat's Pajamas "Candyland Christmas"
ink - Memento Tuxedo Black
paper - My Mind's Eye "Wonderful Winter" pack; Neenah Classic Crest Natrual White cs; DCWV red cs
miscellaneous - copics; stickles; Taylored Expressions "Tiny Twinkles"; mini brads; baker's twine; holly charm; Nesties lacey sqaure die; Snow Writer; sewing machine
