Evening All! I hope you're all well and had a lovely weekend. Mine was lovely. Joe and I showed our ages this weekend - we went to B&Q on Saturday....Joe wanted a new rug for his lovely flat (which is looking so homely now!). We were wandering around and ended up in an aisle of doors....so guess what we did....well what we wanted to do...yep we acted like children and wanted to play hide and seek in all the doors! So much for us being grown ups!
I decided on this cute Christmas tree backing paper to give a bright green background, perfect for showing off my lovely red felt stocking! Yes, I got in the sewing mood and made my own tiny stocking out of my felt scraps! I've used a blanket stitch around the stocking and then a running stitch to attach the white top. This is actually something my mum used to make when we were little - we had loads of these lovely stockings hanging on the Christmas tree - if we were really lucky we'd find chocolate coins in them! As this stocking has an open top you could put a little surprise in there too - I like this idea a lot and might make more for my friends at Christmas...shhh! don't tell them!Sheree...Becca....Anika....Lorna....if you're reading this please forget what I've just written and be surprised by your cards at Christmas! Ha, ha! For more stockings take a peek at their blog.
I'll also enter this in the Cute Card Thursday Challnge this week....the theme is "get a head start" and they have called for Christmas cards! Take a peek at thier blog if you'd like some inspiration, the DT cards are all gorgeous.
Anyway, I've got a good book that I want to carry on reading, so I'll say goodnight!
Thanks for popping by today.
