Merry Monday # 94 ~ Use a stocking

This  week Merry Monday  asks us to use "stockings" on our card...die cuts, stamps, paper, anything with a stocking theme.
 
I pulled out WPlus9 stitched icons and die cut the stocking using PTI gingham in pure poppy and new leaf.  I used the wood grain impression plate with kraft cardstock (misted it a bit with water so I would get a good impression, then I swiped the kraft ink pad across the paper.
 
I used the solid heart from Limitless Layers: Heart to get my impression
then I selectively stamped the sentiment from Love Lives Here:  Holiday.
I pulled out some heart brads from my stash and used those to hang my stocking.
 
That is it folks!
Have a good week!
"Heart" Hugs!!
Colleen
