My First Christmas Stocking!

Hi there

I've been itching to make one of these 'stocking' cards for ages, but have been so busy with preparing invitations for my daughter's wedding, and organising birthday cards, that it's taken a while to get around to it.

I couldn't find a template, so once again drew one up myself, only to find that Marianne put one on her blog today!  Oh, well, it's done it now, and I was only 0.5 cms out in either direction, lol.

Tilda, as always is coloured with Copics, and I've inked the edges of the various papers with Vintage Paper distress ink, and then added a bit of sparkle with Stickles.  The papers I've used are from a lovely new Paper Mania pad called Silent Night, which was part of my birthday present from the lovely Tasha.  The gold poinsettia and swirl, are made of mirri card,  and are both cut with Marianne Creatables dies  Love the poinsettia one, I think it's gonna get a whole lot of use in the next couple of months, lol.

Hope you like it, as I must confess to being pretty chuffed with the finished article.
