BBTB - Christmas Cheer - Stocking Challenge

Our challenge at the Bitten by the Bug site this week was to use this stocking on the Christmas Cheer cartridge, but we were not to use red for the stocking. I decided to create a baby boy stocking, and I love the way it turned out. Be sure to see the other designers creations, because they are FANTASTIC!


Here is the stocking I created for this challenge. I made it for my husband's cousin's first baby. He will be celebrating his first Christmas this year!


I used Tres Jolie papers by My Mind's Eye. I love these papers! I created the sentiment on my computer, and then I used my Nestabilities to cut it. The border sticker on the stocking cuff is also Tres Jolie. I did a lot of chalk inking around all of the pieces. Easy as can be, but so cute! Now that I have my Expression, it's so much fun making larger pieces! I made this stocking 9" long!

I'm off for an early morning walk! I'm trying to get back on a diet. Wish me luck, because I really need it! I hope you had a great weekend! Have a wonderful day, and thanks for stopping by!
