I'm dreaming of a white (and red!) Christmas...

Hey!

Happy Weekend :)

I'm popping in today to share a card with some felt-a-licious lovin' on it:

Deck the Halls

I've been spending the last week rooting through my supplies for inspiration for my Christmas cards. I've gotta say it's been like a treasure hunt; I'd forgotten all about this sweet stocking die I had and couldn't resist make a sweet felt stocking for a card :)

This card is also for our new challenge on A Passion for Papertrey. We wanna see your holiday creations that feature a red and white colour scheme (personally, I'd love to have thrown some green in the mix, but I can always place this card in green envie, or write inside it using green ink, right?! *wink*)

So if you've got a spare moment, why not join in the inky fun with us?

I'm leavin' ya now to go make some more Christmas cards; turns out I've not really made that many so far and have soooooo many more to make than I originally thought...how the heck did December crept around so quickly?

Thank you so much for stopping by! Enjoy the rest of your weekend whatever you're doing!

Catch ya later!

Totally precious card! Love the long shape.

How cute is that? It looks like a die that would actually fit in my itty bitty Sizzix die cutting machine -- the little red one that everyone had to have way back when....

Lindsay said...

Totally ca-ute! Love the red and white!

So sweet, Aimes! Love the shape--so perfect to highlight the adorable red stocking!

that sweet little stocking I'm sure has some fun inky gifts inside or some chocolate or maybe even a SB card :) Oh, I love the anticipation of what is in a stocking! Those little bows are divine, Duchess...I see the ankle has not affected your creative genious at all :)

With or without green ink, that is one darling-cutie-felt success story! (And I *love* the twine to hang it on!)
