Christmas Stocking Swap with Simply Betty Stamps

Over at Simply Betty Stamps we were given this gorgeous image called Stocking Elf to create a card with and to send to a swap partner along with some Christmas goodies. To make it even more fun we had a Christmas stocking/sock theme, sending something sock or stocking related to our swap partner as part of the gift. And now we're having a big BLOG HOP reveal everyone's cards - I hope you like mine.

I'm not showing the rest of the goodies I sent - I don't want to make anyone jealous LOL - but I've heard from the recipient and she seemed to be very happy with it all which is lovely to know.

Check out everyone else's part in the swap....

Even though you can checkout the hop, I couldn't resist showing these off. I couldn't find any CUTE Christmas socks - after all it is Summer here in Australia - but my gorgeous swap partner Kate sent me these- aren't they adorable!!!

First Cup Cassandra

Check out this gorgeous new image from Simply Betty Stamps called First Cup Cassandra. I just loved colouring her up - that gorgeous up do was so much fun to shade. But before I coloured her up I created the background for her using Copic markers and colourless blender- you can check out my tutorial HERE. She's so elegant I decided to use an elegant layout for her too - and of course a bit of sparkle never goes astray.
