the stockings were hung...

...by the chimney with care! Good morning all!! Are you ready for Christmas? I sure am. Well, in spirit and mind I am!! Still have a few little things to do, but those won't take long at all!
It is my turn to showcase the Daily Project at Exploring Cricut. I have a sweet friend that had a precious little girl earlier this year and I just had to make that baby a Christmas card. I once again used the Teresa Collins December 25th cartridge. I've been giving it a real workout this month!! I cut the stocking that can be found at the #9 and 19th spots on the overlay. I cut it out at 4.75 inches. I then cut a piece of white and used a Martha Stewart punch on the bottom to make the front of a mantel to hang the stocking from. I used my Sakura Clear Star gelly roll pen and did some faux stitching on the stocking and the mantel. I finished off the stocking with a couple of little heart buttons and a bling for the tack to hang it with. I popped it up on one thickness of foam tape and added some more bling in the corner. The sentiments are from the Christmas Joy stamp set from Mary-Cardz TV Stamps. And that's it for today! I sure hope you have been following our Daily Projects each day. If not, well you sure have missed out on some awesomeness for sure!!! Also, you still have time to whip up a new Christmas project for our current challenge. You have until 10pm, EST, tonight to link it. Hope ya'll like my card!!!! :)
