'tis the season to be jolly

So all my shopping is done, wrapped and under the tree. The stockings are hung on the dinning room chairs with care hahaha. My card situation however is not going well. I still need to make cards for all of my Dad's side. Oh well... everything gets done eventually. I am also hoping to make shortbread cookies soon. I hope you are all having a joyful Christmas season. 3 more days! woot woot! And only 5 more days until we leave on the cruise! YAY!

So anyway... about the card. I used a creative memories tag punch for the tag. (also great for tags on gifts) I like the simple layout of this card, how the lace is on an angle and the red sticker too. so easy to make.

Have a great holiday and Merry Christmas to all!

stockings on a line

Merry merry Christmas season! woot woot! I am getting so excited! I am going Christmas shopping finally! I think I left it a bit late but oh well.... It will get done eventually :) The stockings were stamped on light chipboard and then cut out. I clear embossed over the black ink and then lightly coloured them with ink. The wire was just glued on with a glue stick but it still holds enough and there is still some dimention. I also dyed the lace with tea dye distress ink. (it was originally white)
