Christmas Stocking!

Evening all. Sorry for the late post today. It's been one of those hectic days! Not enjoying work at the minute. I love my job but we just don't have the resources to provide the care I want to. I'm becoming a bit disillusioned with it all. I have a meeting with my manager tomorrow so hopefully he may be able to help the situation! Sorry for the rant, anyway onto today's card!


I have used another of these cute christmas manga images from Sugar Nellie. How sweet is he?! I went for the vibrant traditional colours and a simple LO. I really enjoyed making this card and am sooooo please with the final result, I love the CAS look and may very well use this LO again!

Materials:


Image: Mr Stocking by Sugar Nellie available here from funky kits. Coloured with Koh-i-noors and Sansodor

Paper: from Dovecraft HO HO HO pack

CS: from stash

Sentiment: Studio G

Tools: distress inks, sponge, nesties

Misc: red adhesive gems from papermania

Well I hope you like tonights offering. Please leave me a comment so I know that you stopped by.

Thanks to everyone for their well wishes and good luck for the rugby. For those of you who don't know the Leeds Rhino's won on saturday, making it a hat trick, rugby league champions three years in a row! Well done boys you did us proud!!

Night all, early night for me, I need to mentally prepare myself for work tomorrow! Lol!

Hugs, Vicky ~x~
