A real grey day here but I've been busy finishing up the Christmas Cards - I began to tidy the desk and found a few printed images waiting to be coloured, so rather than throw them away I have made them into cards - if I don't send them this year I'll save them for next (nothing like starting early is there??? lol).
This one though is already in the post!
The recipient will need a thick letter box ... didn't think about the thickness of it when I was adding the 'jingly bells'!
A digi freebie from the Paper Garden coloured with promarkers and a few punched out snowflakes with a bit of bling! The stocking cut out with a nestie and brushed with Victorian Velvet Distress Ink. Background paper is from K and Co and the little parcels were just made from some red paper.
Challenges -
Tuesday Taggers - The Stockings were hung
Creative Belli - Xmas themed embellishments
Magic in the Air - Traditional Red and Green
Stampin Vacation (Youth) - Christmas Stocking
Crafty Ho's - Red and Green
