The stockings Were Hung by the Chimmney With Care!

  With all the cold and snowy weather of late, it sure does make it easy to create Christmas cards. Once again I am playing along with this week's challenge at Merry Monday.


    With all the Christmas stamps filling my drawers and shelves, would you believe I don't have one of a stocking.  I didn't let this minor problem deter me. I found some pattern paper I picked up this past Christmas that had some stockings on it. With a little bit of fussy cutting, and a new layout, this is what I came up with.


I used the woodgrain impression plate brayered with ink to create the little mantel which I propped up with foam dots. The little mouse is an old rubber mounted stamp by Judith that I bought eons ago. Thanks for stopping by to take a peek.
