Tis the Season!

While I anxiously await my new stuff from Papertrey Ink, I made another card using Stocking Prints. It's fast becoming a favorite set!

I hope you aren't getting tired of Kraft and flourishes, because those two things are current favorites, too! This time I stamped the stockings directly onto the cardstock, rather than stamp and cut them out. I like seeing the flourishes showing through on the stockings. I used my ribbon tag die and added the sentiment at the bottom of the card with some layering and Vintage Cream ribbon. As much fun as it is to try different colors for Christmas, I really do love the traditional red and green together.

I hope you are having a great Wednesday! This week is spirit week at my daughter's Daycare and today was "Dress Crazy Day." I was wondering what the neighbors must have thought when they saw us walking to Daycare this morning - she was quite the sight! Of course, when you're five, you can get away with anything!
