Christmas Stocking

Happy Monday! We are having a very short school day today, because yesterday my baby girl broke her big toe :( I wish she had been doing something fun, or worth it, but she was running to get in a line for a huge inflatable at her end of the year softball party when she tripped. I suppose breaking a toe isn't that big of a deal and they don't cast it, but it's right along her growth plate. Messing with a kids feet scares me, so I had to take her in and I'm glad I did.

I made this cute Christmas card for a few challenges using an October Clear Dollar Stamps set called Filled With Cheer.

Pile it On #42 -- soft holiday card (flower soft on the sock)
Top Tip Tuesday #7 -- Anything Goes
The Ribbon Girl #2 -- red & green

I used some Flower Soft on the toe and heel of the sock. . .fuzzy socks are the best when it's cold.
CDS Stamps: Filled With Cheer
IBoldnk: Memento Tuxedo Black, Basic Gray
Paper: Cloud 9 dp, Cottonball White (CDS)
Copics: R27, R29, C1
Accessories: Cherry Go Round ribbon (CDS), Polar White Flower Soft, sponge

Thanks for stopping by. . .between nursing my baby back to health, I may get some crafting done. . .we'll see.
