CASCS300 and FF0022 The Stockings Were Hung

Happy Saturday, everyone!  And happy December!! The CAS Colours and Sketches challenge is celebrating six years--what a milestone!  Here's the sketch they have to celebrate:

I had these red stockings stamped and cut for another challenge, so I just did three more in green to create my Christmas card; I love the country feel of these images!  Not quite sure if it's CAS enough, but I am giving it a go anyway!:

The stamp set I used is called Stitched Stockings from My Favorite Things; sadly, I believe it is retired.  It has a lot of great country Christmas images, and I stamped a bunch of them on my Crumb Cake background, then stamped and diecut the stockings, "stringing" them on some red and white baker's twine:

I overstamped a Papertrey sentiment on the front, then added this on the inside:

Since my card is larger, 4" x 8", I created a custom envelope using my Envelope Punch Board.  It's a great help when you want to create cards that are different-sized!  And since the Festive Friday challenge this week is Christmas, I am entering it there as well!

Thanks for popping in today!

Not the clearest of photos, but Cassidy was all decked out in red for her Christmas program!!  She is on the end on the left...there were so many people at the concert, Grampy and Grammy were not able to get tickets.  But we did see a video!

Enjoy your day and be blessed!  Be sure to pop in again tomorrow for the next Paper Players challenge!

Gosh, Cassidy is growing up so fast!!! I've been reading your blog for several years, and have enjoyed seeing photos of her doing various craft activities with you, going on excursions with you and your husband, and photos of Cassidy and her mom. It's been so fun to see them! I asked you 3 years ago or so if you would like me to make photo magnets of Cassidy, maybe one every 6 months or so; the kids for whom I make similar such magnets are always delighted to receive the "latest". My offer to you still stands. Blessings...Casey Eckert,

Your stockings are playfully hung and extras cute! Speaking of cute, look at Cassidy all decked out in red! So sorry you didn't get to see her show in person, maybe next time ;)

The red and green stockings really pop against the kraft background! Thanks for sharing in our birthday celebration at CC&S! :)

Oh so cute, LeAnne! I love all the country Christmas images you stamped in Crumb Cake. The stockings truly do "pop" against the background. Thank you for sharing at Festive Friday!
