Rockin' The Holidays

Hello there, how are you doing today!!! I'm good...only I have to go to work today....ever have one of those days where you just want to stay home and craft all day? Yep, me too....EVERY day!! LOL!!! Today, I have another Christmas card for you.....yay.....another one to add to my stack!!!
This is a card I did for the Hallmark Scrapbook Message Boards Weekly Challenge. This week we were asked to use the rocking horse cut from the Joys of the Season cartridge. I love this cut.....so cute and easy to work with!!! I covered his mane and tail in black Stickles and made a little wreath from some tiny garland I found at Hobby Lobby. Oh and my favorite thing that I did on this card.....the stitching.....cool huh.....I dug out my little disc thingies that go with my sewing machine and picked out a neat one and used it....I really like it!!!
I used a combination of papers...Basic Grey, Stampin Up and DCWV....the dotty ribbon is also Stampin Up as well. The stamp up in the upper right hand corner is from a set called Christmas Expressions that I got at Cornish Heritage Farms. Won't you please come on over to the Hallmark Message Boards and play along with us.....there are lots of fun ideas and whole bunch of very nice people over there to chat with!!! Alrighty then....I must go now....but join me again tomorrow for another FUN surprise!!! HUGS!!!!
