The Stockings Are Hung

What's happened to December??? Why is it going so fast?  I hope I'll be ready by the time Santa visits.  At least I've got one stocking ready to hang ;)

This is one of my favourite woodblock Christmas stamps.  I've been so busy trying to use all my NBUS Christmas stamps and dies that I haven't got round to any of my old favourites this year, but I managed to find a little stash of images that I'd stamped last year, so I smooshed this one in Distress Inks, fussy cut it and mounted it onto a plaid Distress-inked background.  The sentiment is from Uniko.

I'm entering this into TIME OUT Challenge where they've got this gorgeous inspiration photo:

And Muse Christmas Visions festive free for all.
