Christmas Stockings in August? BBTB Challenge

I guess with the HOT weather we've been having Regina of Bitten by the Bug thought that thinking of Christmas would help cool us off. This week Regina asked the Design Team to use the pointy toed stocking from the Cricut Christmas Cheer cartridge. This is my favorite stocking of all!
I also used my Cricut Joys of the Season cartridge for the snowflake on the stocking, some K I Memories papers, pearl dew drops, a few snowflake brads, some purple bling and safety pin from my stash, a white pom-pom on the toe, a SU stamp for the tag, a bit of Offray ribbon and lots of Stickles for glimmer and shine!!!
The bottom scallop is from the Cricut Accent Essentials cartridge...I used it as the bottom edge of the card front...the card actually rests on the edges....I did that just for a little something different. And lastly, I popped the stocking up off the card with pop dots for a little added interest! Okay it's August and I have a Christmas card done....if I keep it up maybe I won't be rushing at the last minute to get them done!!! Be sure and check out the other Designer Creations over at BBTB and join in on the challenge!!! Have a wonderful day and THANK YOU for stopping by to see me!!!

Pin It!
