The Christmas Stocking

Hiya folks! Hope you are having a great weekend so far. . .?

It's Sunday morning, so time for another theme at Winter Wonderland. You made me chuckle with all your funny gingerbread people last week - well done all who entered!

This week the theme is 'The Christmas Stocking', so we want to see your projects featuring all those stockings!

In the past I have seen loads of images with little creatures stuffed into stockings, so I thought I would do the same with mine this week, but I used one of my own designs for it. Little Ruff the Doggie, complete with little sprig of holly.

I coloured the image in digitally this time using photoshop. If you want a similar image I have black and white line versions of this and others like it available in my shop, Delicious Doodles, at reasonable prices too!

For the rest of the card I used Tinker & Co papers for backings, the holly in the corner is another of my images, also available at Delicious Doodles, coloured digitally again. For the sentiment, I printed it out and put some Pebeo dimension paint round in little dots, and added a brad (Papermania I think). Finally I splodged some Glistening Snow paint here and there, and added a rather large bow. Bit too big I think - but what the heck!

Your turn now then - head over to Winter Wonderland and take a nosey at the DT samples for some inspiration, and have a go yourself!! We'd love to see you there!

I am wondering when you announce the winner of the challenge this week? I could nor find anyone last week (if there was anyone), and neither can I find one this time. Just asking :)

Another great card from you! I swear, no one can do the the 3D pop ups on images quite like you! I love the little doggie in the stocking. Your holly is great too! Thanks for the freebie mouse!
