Merry AND Bright

We ended up having about 12" of heavy wet snow here in Massachusetts yesterday -  even after shoveling and snow blowing the stuff for an hour after work - it still put me in the holiday spirit to make this card!
There's a stocking on it for the Merry Monday Challenge

My Sentiment was chosen for the CAS-ology cue card    AND  

My sketch is this week's Seize the Sketch
 I'll be back tomorrow with yet another Christmas card!

Stamps:  sentiment from Seasons of Love, stocking from Sewing Box Christmas - Waltzingmouse
Paper:  white, pure poppy - PTI, DP Sn@p Simple Stories
Ink:  Archival Jet Black
Accessories:  Maraschino Twine - The Twinery, enamel spots - My Minds Eye, stitched mat rectangles - Lil'Inker Designs, foam dots.

I like the stitching on the stocking and the touch of baker's twine for the hanger. Cute card.

I really need to take a page from your book, and make my Christmas cards year round. Your card is adorable and perfect design for mass producing. I'm surprised you had the energy to craft after all that shoveling!

Julia, this is precious...I think I have this stocking too and forgot all about it! After all that snow shoveling (we lost power for 58 hours) I am amazed you had energy to stamp! Oh shoot, we always have energy to stamp, right?! Thanks for playing with us this week at Merry Monday!
