Christmas Sweets

I am in love with the color challenge at Color Me Beautiful this week!  Okay, maybe it is more so the name of the challenge I am drawn to. :)  Christmas Sweets!  Yum!
Aren't these pretty colors though?  I haven't used Wisteria Wonder in a long time and I really need to start making a dent in my collection of cardstock before it retires.  Unless Stampin' Up! decides to bring it in as a permanent color!  That is not unheard of, and a while back they DID tell us to hold onto our In Color ink pads after they retire in case they decided to do this again.  Hint, hint, right?  We don't have any other light purples in our collection, so it would be fine with me if they decided to put this in the Subtles and replace, say Perfect Plum.  That one's not all that subtle anyway, in my opinion! :)  Just sayin'.  lol
I just could not resist making the little jars of candy to go along with the Christmas Sweets theme. :)  I stamped Basic Gray on Vellum Cardstock and die cut them with the Cannery Framelits.  The candies are adhered directly to the vellum with Crystal Effects.  It actually made them a little bit darker so you can see them better through the vellum.  Unfortunately, I had to completely redo the first two I made because they stuck to my counter and got ruined!  Make sure you dry them upside down, just in case some of that sneaky CE seeps out.  You know how I know! :)
