Remember when we were kids and we waited in anticipation for the Sears Roebuck Catalog to arrive. How we would wear the pages out looking at the things we wished Santa would bring. I know I am telling my age ;-/ … My cousin was drawn to the few pages right before the toy section where they had colorful pictures of candies. She called it "Poured out Candy". Every year it was at the top of her list. The memory of that is what inspired me to draw my "947J Holiday Candies" deluxe stamp set. Today I would like to share with you a card made with one of the embellishments from that set.
