Fa-la-la-la-la....

Christmas is drawing near, and many of you may have heard that I recently lost my father. This holiday will definately be a difficult one,
but with grown children of my own and a grandson who still believes in Santa,
I am trying to enjoy the season and all that goes with it!
 
 
I put up my tree this weekend, including my Dad's Lionel train set, and felt my family room fireplace needed a bit of the traditional mood,
so I made this chipboard stocking banner.
 
Starting with a KaiserKraft mini board kit, I covered the stocking shapes with
DCWV
"Heirloom Christmas" papers.
I then cut out dozens of poinsettia blooms with my Spellbinders die.  It made the process so fast and easy!
The chipboard letters were old Colorbok ones I'd hung onto for years, simply painting and glittering them with Stampendous, "Red Tinsel" embossing powder.
 
 







 
  
                                                              
 

It's not much,but I intend to add more before the 23rd.
 
Perhaps some pots of poinsetties along the bottom the fireplace!
