Christmas Stockings

Hi everyone, hope you're having a great weekend. I am at my Mom's right now. We came in last night for my aunt's birthday and are staying another night tonight. My kids got the funny idea to try to stay up all night and Gramma said okay. Well I thought they would be out by midnight, boy was I wrong! Two made it until 3:30am and the other 4:30!!!! I can't believe. My oldest and I were out first. So I figured okay they'll sleep in at least. Nope - 8:00am rise and shine. I am so exhausted and hoping they'll be out early tonight - ya right!
So here's the deal the theme this week at Susie and Vikki's is Christmas Stockings, how easy is that and what a great way to get a head start on your cards! I wanted to use an old ignored stamp, so I pulled out this It's a Stretch stocking from Stamping Up and went with a simple design. I added stickles to the stockings and photographed it before they dried so it kind of looks mucky. But I am away from home so I can't retake the picture right now, so here it is.

It's nice to give fresh life to old stamps isn't it. I think you should have a nap together. I ran my daughter and her friend all weekend to a Christian Youth Conference, 9 am start to 11 pm end and you know that you are there earlier and stay later, the one night we went out for pizza after. They had a blast, but we are both very tired.
