A RAK


I had so many people visit my blog last time I used this image and of the many comments was one from a lady who said she had this stamp and would send it to me. She wouldn't take anything for it and when it arrived she had included a couple of sets of clear sets of mag freebie stamps as well. She isn't a regular commentor and I was astonished by her kindness. I am so pleased to finally have this stamp for myself and made a few Christmas cards with it.

This one is my DT card for the new challenge at Crafty Ribbons where our challenge is tradition. I chose hanging up your stocking for Santa as my tradition. I went for a distressed look using Crafter's Companion vintage Christmas papers and the gorgeous Christmas charm badges ribbon from Crafty Ribbons. The stocking bunting is a Memory Box die.

Lucky you Marianne!! What a kind lady. I have had mine for many years, 7 or 8 years, I paid £22 for it in a bidding war on Ebay!! I just really loved it and at that time, it had been discontinued. I love your little Stockings die too. A gorgeous card. Hugs, Carol S,xx
