Hanging Up The Decorations

We actually haven't got our Christmas tree yet as we always have a real one and don't get it too early as all the needles fall off by Christmas Day so we try to leave it until the 12 days before Christmas when you are traditionally supposed to put up your tree.

Anyway onto a couple of cards I made this weekend. This first one is for CC404 to use Marina Mist, Cherry Cobbler and Early Espresso and Papertake Weekly's Anything Goes Challenge. I bought these cute mini pegs last week from The Range and thought that some little stockings would be cute with them.

And my next card is for Create with Connie and Mary's Challenge #229 for the sketch and Cute Card Thursday's Challenge #246 to use red and green. I haven't use this Festival of Prints paper pad very much so thought I would pull it out with my new Ornament Keepsakes stamp set and matching dies and Cherry Cobbler tulle - love this stuff!

And that's all for this post folks! Thanks for stopping by!
