Show us your stockings!

The latest challenge in Daring Cardmakers' run up to Christmas is to show us your stockings - if you don't feel like making festive projects, perhaps you'll go for fishnets instead!

I made a few tiny tags - just enough room to write names of recipient and giver.

Alongside the traditional stockings here there are a few pale blue snowflakes - it's looking like we'll be getting some of those for real later today if the forecast is to be believed!

Lost Coast Designs has “it’s a wrap” as the current theme so I’m playing there too (tags, bags, wrapping paper, boxes etc - basically stamp something gift-related that’s not a card)

Link in the chain - Octobter

It's reveal day at Card Chain Challenge. Mine has gone over the Pond to Linda this time.

From the options on offer for October I chose the colour palette (ruby, amber, sapphire) and the theme of shoes. Those things combined in my head to make a Wizard of Oz vibe so yellow brick road it had to be! That meant my usual one layer creations for CCC fell by the wayside as I wanted to use this brickwork embossing folder. 

The shoes have some glitter pen on them for a bit of glamour and the tiny nail art gems add a bit extra in that department.
