Christmas Stockings

Christmas Stockings 

Hi everyone, I'm sorry that I've not been around very much lately, I've not been 
very well, what I thought was just a chesty cough turned out to be fluid on the lung. 
I just hope that all the steroids and other meds I've been pumped full of start to 
work soon. I'm so far behind with sorting things and preparing for Christmas I don't 
think that I will ever be able to catch up, but at least I've managed to put up the 
Christmas decorations that I made several weeks ago and the tree is finally up now, 
better late than never lol. 
A couple of months ago I made some new tree decorations using Stampin-Up's 
Ornament Keepsakes stamps and die bundle, I also made some new devore bows 
& some Hessian Christmas Stockings and I had hoped to make some small 
hessian treat bags to hand on the tree but I never got around to making them.

So here they are....I hope you like them.

Tree Decoration made with Stampin-Up Ornament Keepsakes Stamp and 
die bundle

To make the decorations I've used ~ Stampin-Up's Ornament Keepsakes Stamps 
and Dies, Stampin-Up's Crumb Cake Ink Pad and Impress Jet Black Ink Pad, 
Large Bling Jewel, Ribbon and some Ivory Tulle.

To make the stockings I've used ~ Burlap,3.5" Wide Ivory Lace, White Berisfords 
Christmas Ribbon, White Satin Ribbon Hand-tied bow, Large Pearl & Swarovski 
Crystal Jewel, Strung Ivory Pearls, Silver bells Charms and Ivory Pearls.

Well I'm off to wrap up a few presents and before I go I would just like to 
wish you all a very Merry Christmas and Best Wishes for the New Year.
