It is time for Flourishes Timeless Tuesday Challenge (FTTC97)! This week Maki Jones is our challenge host! Maki is challenging us to a theme! The theme is all about food and drink! Create a card or project that showcases some yummy treats either real or stamped! We look forward to seeing what delicious looking creations you make!

For the food and drink challenge, I decided to have alittle bit of fun with one of my Christmas favorites.  I just love the chalky textured peppermint sticks.  The only place locally I can find them is at the Cracker Barrel.  One day last week, my son and I did the drive through thing at a local restaurant called Smithfield's Barbeque!  We decide to share a small french fry. The fries were served in this fabulous red and white container.  As soon as I saw it, the lightbulb went off.  I thought "peppermint fries!"  I went buy the other day and was only charged alittle over a buck for more than a dozen.  How cool is that?  I am using the Flourishes Sweets of the Seasons for the candy cane cluster and sentiment.  I layered the image with a Spellbinder's lacey circle and used some tissue paper and the project was done.

I also did a separate card for today's SCS Color Combo Challenge CC301!  We are using concord crush, marine mist, and basic/going gray!   For this card I am using Flourishes, Damask bg for the punched out ornament.  I am using Christmas Music to go behind the sentiment from Santa, I Believe stamp sets. 

I am using the sketch from Crazy 4 Challenges 67 Cafe Character: Glitter ABC Christmas challenge - Y=yuletide (holly and berries and red and green) Alphabet challenge -G is for glitter (used gel pen and glitter cardstock)Craft Your Days Away - Punch it out Crafty Pad - Heat or Dry Embossing Creative Card Crew - Anything Goes Die Cut Dreams Christmas - A Christmas Carol ("Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas")Fresh Brewed Challenges - Sparkle & ShineLet's Ink It Up - Christmas with sparkle &; bling   Lots to do - GlitzMami Doodles - Anything Goes Opus Gluei - Getting Frosted    Stampin' with the Dragon - make it sparkle  Sugar Sweet Paper Treats - Anything Goes OSAAT-Anything Goes
