Get Your Christmas Stocking Out!

I can't believe it's less than 11 weeks to Christmas - how scary! It made me realise I really should get on with making some more Christmas cards. I've used Santa's Helpers from Mo Manning on this one - you can find them in Mo's store HERE. I've had these guys for a while so it was really great to get them all coloured up. I paired them with some funky paper from my stash. The layout started out from a sketch I was following and ended up taking on a life of it's own - I have a habit of working like that - LOL!

The sentiment is a Magnolia stamp with a bit of colour and glitter added to give it some dimension. There's some extra Christmas glitter on the stocking's "fluff" and some rhinestones for pom poms on the elves' hats.
