Christmas Feast

This week's prompt is all about the Christmas Feast ... we're asking you to create a holiday card which features food or drink of some sort... candy canes, gingerbread men, sugar plums, christmas cookies and hot chocolate, or the Grinch carving the roast beast ... whatever yummy foods and drinks mean Christmas to you.

Lauren says, "For me, at Christmas time... or the rest of the year... when you say, "treats" i think, "SWEETS"; this is true in both art and life! :) So when I realize I have a beautifully realistic (but made of lightweight plastic) candy cane AND some lovingly hoarded Hambly Christmas paper, I'm all set to make a food-related holiday card! Especially if Cardabilities Sketch #111 is particularly awesome... which it is!"

Stephanie says, "This card is an example of what happens when my husband and I design a card together.  I asked him for ideas for this prompt, and he kept singing "O' Christmas Corn" ... and thus this design was born.  Since we live in Iowa, I have a variety of corn stamps ... so I colored my corn stalk with Spectrum Noir markers (GB3, GB4, DG1 & DG2) and then decorated it for the holidays with sequin ornaments and bling for the lights  Every corn field needs a few Christmas critters, a star & some presents ... and of course our typed Christmas lyrics."

Whether you favor candy or corn... or anything delicious that falls in between... have fun making your "Christmas Feast" card and link it up here by 6pm (EST) on Wednesday, December 3rd. Keyword for galleris and flickr is JB:14:24.
