June Rudolph Days

This is a new to me challenge to help me get my Christmas cards made throughout the year so I don't stress come December.  Do you like to do that too?  You can go to June Rudolph Days and play is a Christmas card challenge and it is anything any kind of Christmas card you want to make.

I had this NBUS stamp from MFT called Filled with Joy and a tree stamp from a Decora set called Merry Christmas...I had never used that tree before and thought it would look perfect for the backdrop of this little girl holding the Christmas stocking.
I paper pieced the stocking with red dotted paper.
Heart Hugs, friends!


  1. Oh, how darling! The PI image is adorable holding the stocking! And, such a lovely tree for the backdrop!

  2. Awwwww...this is so CUTE Colleen!! I have that same MFT stamp and mine hasn't seen ink yet either! Great idea to paper piece the stocking and I love that tree in the's beautiful!! :0)

  3. Great stocking, Col, and she looks pleased as punch to own it! This is a darling Christmas card! I love the tree and sediment! Good to see you at Rudolph's! Hugs, Darnell
